My girlfriend and I just spent 5 days at Tanusas, and it was one of the best travel experiences we have ever had. The food: every meal has multiple courses created from ingredients either grown in the garden or fished from right off the shore of the property. To say the food is remarkable is understating it - it's more... More

What a retreat! Superb location, fantastic villas, very nice, lonely, sandy beach, great waves, spa. All this you can see on the website etc. But the REAL surprise comes, when you get there: visit the half a hectar vegetable garden first, which caters for 80% of the guests culinary needs. Taste some of the fresh vegetables. An explosion of aroma... More

I vacation a lot on the Ecuadorian coast, and until I discovered Las Tanusas I hadn't found an experience that was superior to renting an apartment. Not only does Las Tansusas have a great private beach, the gastronomic experience is incomparable. You really are eating at one of Ecuador´s finest restaurants, and the focus on sustainability is admirable. I´d highly... More

Let me first say that the location of this property is truly idyllic....beautiful beachfront setting on gorgeous deserted beach. The accommodations were very nice and the staff was well trained, friendly and extremely helpful. The food is either freshly caught from ocean, freshly picked from their organic garden or made on property. It is deliciously prepared by highly talented chef... More

This is a small hotel, which guarantees safety, privacy and great service. Rodrigo and Dayra are extremely accommodating and go out of their way to please their guests. All meals of the day are included and the chef and kitchen staff plan the menus ahead taking into account your preferences. I liked every single dish I was served, from simple... More

I stayed at Tanusas for two weeks in January 2015. I am a writer from the UK, and wanted an inspired and inspiring place for a short writing retreat. The Tanusas experience began at Guayaquil airport. The hotel had sent three people, including one Spanish-English translator, to pick me up, even though it was only four in the morning! They...

Went with my Ecuadorian wife and family in law to Las Tanusas. What a pleasant surprise. The main building where we stayed only have 4-5 rooms and is ideal with children as it has easy access to pool, kids/TV room and dining area. The surroundings are beautiful, the resort very well planned and the service top range. What really sets... More
