Elegantly rustic country house style hotel in an oasis-like valley surrounded by hills, offering stylish accommodation within delightful grounds.

Set within the rolling hills of Ecuador's northern highlands, surrounded by trees and flowering bushes, the rustic Hacienda Piman has been recently renovated to combine the best of its traditional features with a low-key, contemporary elegance.

From the outside the hotel resembles a typical Ecuadorian country house, its colonnaded walkways dotted with rocking chairs in which to spend peaceful moments appreciating the idyllic scenery.Interiors feature exposed brickwork, patterned wallpapers and stylish furnishings. Guestrooms are either in the main manor house, elevated at the top of a grand staircase, or in one of the five separate cottages, all set within peaceful grounds scattered with crumbling columns, arches and other atmospheric architectural remnants.

There's even a beautiful little whitewashed chapel tucked in between the greenery. The hacienda also has an outdoor pool and a restaurant which brings the feel of the outdoors in with its floor to ceiling windows, and serves home-style cuisine alongside an array of exotic fruit juices.

    JB, Edinburgh
  • It was all brilliant, we expected the Galapagos to be the highlight, but all the other trips were as good in different ways. All the Ecuadorians encountered at hotels, restaurants,…

Our Expert's Opinion

This is a wonderful hotel, it really takes you back in time from the moment you arrive, the traditional hacienda buildings have been lovingly restored to their former elegance and sit nestled in an oasis surrounded by the arid mountains. It’s great to just explore the grounds, relax by the pool or find a shaded patio to read a book.
