Nestled on the slopes of the Ilaló Volcano just outside Quito, Ilatoa Lodge offers a comfortable stay in a picture perfect setting.

Whilst Quito has no shortage of hotels within the city centre sometimes it is nice to escape the hustle and bustle to enjoy the more serene outskirts. Ilatoa Lodge has the perfect setting, nestled on the slopes of the (extinct) Ilaló Volcano with expansive views of Quito in the valley below.

With only 6 comfortable and airy bedrooms each with huge picture windows and local artwork you’ll find a personalised and friendly service during your stay. There is a restaurant offering local dishes, a wonderful garden to explore and maybe spot a hummingbird or two, there’s even a wine cellar if you want to indulge.

The location allows you easy access to the centre of Quito to explore the historic old city with its cobbled streets and colonial churches. You can also hike to the crater of the Ilaló Volcano directly from the hotel. The excellent location also means you can visit the amazing sights around Quito from the cloud forest in the north to Cotopaxi volcano to the south.

What our clients say

  • The Galapagos was as expected beautiful and interesting but we were pleasantly surprised by the visits to the rose plantation and panama hat factory which turned out far more interesting than we had expected. also the scenery in mainland Ecuador was breath-taking at times.

    MW, London
  • Most Memorable Moment?: Drving up Mt. Cotopaxi and watching a Gaucho chase a cow riding a horse at the gallop whilst trying to lassoe it on a cobbled road,...some rider!  The Papallacto hot baths.The basket ride across the canyion south of Banos.

    NBH, Watchet
  • 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, shops, etc could not do enough to help, and they did it with a smile.

    AH, Eastleigh
  • Probably the Tren Crucero (was the top experience) but too many highlights to mention.

    SB, Cambourne
  • Ecuador is perhaps a most underrated country for a great visitor experience. The people are great and helpful and, for anyone with an interest in the natural world, there is so much variety to see and enjoy.

    IB, Kendal
  • Highlights:- “Quito celebrating their anniversary of independence. All the Haciendas we visited were full of history and interesting in different ways .Las Cajas and getting up into the high Andes was great”
