This is my fourth hotel in Banos and it blows the competition out of the water. “Beautiful hotel but difficult if you are not in good physical condition, you need a car and be young because it is outside the city

I stayed at Runa Luntun two weeks ago for a weekend. It is a bit of a drive from Quito but once you pass Ambato you get to enjoy incredible views! The hotel consists of spread out bungalows allowing for maximum privacy. I had the Yoga Suite which was a nice room with a little bit of a walk from... More

This is my fourth hotel in Banos and it blows the competition out of the water. It sits on a high crag overlooking town, in fact, it's probably a precarious, 15 minute drive up the mountain from the centre of town so not ideal if you want to enjoy the nightlife. This is its real charm. From my room we... More

I loved the beautiful views and the pools and the decor but I wanted to write and warn people how far away the restaurants and pools are from the rooms. There are LOT of steps making getting around very strenuous if you are not in good shape. Our room was lovely but lacked some basic things that I am used... More

So many things to say about this place! The views from the resort were simply unreal. We stayed in the Romantic Suite Mi Amor and were so happy with this choice. We knew it was smaller than some other rooms but it was really all we needed. The main reason we chose this room is that it has a jacuzzi... More

We stayed at Luna Runtun for one night and the overall experience was really good. The views from the hotel are amazing, full of mountains and wonderful landscapes. The hot springs at the terraces are just so great to spend the afternoon relaxing and chilling. Dinner was also really good. Only bad point was the fireplace in our room. We... More

If you are in Banos this hotel is about 20 minutes and a couple of thousand feet above the town. It was just perfect for us as I do not recommend staying in town. The hotel is lovely the staff friendly and you are way above the town so it is quiet and peaceful (Just what a spa should be)

we booked a 1 hour massage for couples which was terrible. The massages in town were much better and cheaper. The massage felt like somebody was just moving their hands up and down but not knowing where any muscles were actually located. The restaurant has a great view and the food was fine.

Thank you for your visit and comments about Luna Runtun. The SPA Volcánico has professional therapists. A prestigious operation since 2002 with returning guests and visitors. With 500m2, 11 rooms and 25 treatments, it has become the best of the region. I understand the way you felt the massage is a personal matter. More

Traveled in a group of 6 friends to Banos, and spent 2 nights in the Imperial Suite-- #47, shared between 4 people (the two other friends are a couple and shared the romantic and gorgeous room #35). #47 was an enormous 2/2 with balcony, kitchen, living room, with an expansive view of Banos, and very well maintained.

I went to Luna Runtun to visit the pools, therefore I cannot comment on the hotel, restaurant or treatments. In terms of the pools, I was disappointed that there was only one that is truly hot (and unfortunately it is not placed to have a view over Baños). The rest of the pools are lukewarm, and on a cool night... More
