Me and my partner stayed at Sani lodge for a 4D/3N experience very recently. The good points about the lodge are that the staff are very friendly, the food is excellent and the guides are very knowledgeable. The lodge is nice and far into the jungle so you can't see any signs of the destruction from the oil companies once... More

Sani Lodge is owned and operated by the Yasuni people and is located on their lands. This area of the rain forest has not been exploited to the extreme. Much of the area is pristine or near so and is not subject to logging and oil production. It is located approximately 3 hours by fast boat from Coca down the... More

What an enjoyable time we had at Sani Lodge. The trip to the lodge is an adventure in itself. After being met at the airport in Coca, we proceeded by bus to a hotel dock where our motorized canoe awaited. Our guide, Guido, gave an excellent orientation after which we put on our life jackets and began the first part... More

wow amazing experience away from civilization just what I needed. The cabins make you feel like you are camping but with hotel amenities. The flora and fauna is beautiful and our guide Guido was very comical and knowledgable and very upfront. He does not make a promise he can't commit to such as viewing of certain animals. Considering we went... More

We had a four day stay at the Sani Lodge. The trip was incredible, well planned and exceeded our expectations. The community handle the trips well ensuring we did everything we wanted to but not clashing with other groups and things being overcrowded. Visiting the canopy tower, jungle walks and piranha fishing were amazing. The guides were fantastic and there... More

We had a fantastic time at a magical place. The accommodations are great, the food was good and the staff were fantastic and incredibly knowledgeable about the wildlife. The people of sani lodge really care about the lodge, the place and about their work.

My wife, my son and I stayed at Sani Lodge in March 2015. I have been to the Amazon before and had to come back again and bring my family.

Spent 3 nights and 4 days here. The staff are fantastic. So friendly and willing to help with anything you need. The lodge is just off the Napo. You walk a bit through the jungle and then get a paddle canoe. The guides take you out to do what you like - walk, canoe ride or bird watch. The food... More

Sani lodge was incredible. It seems to be one of the more remote lodges which was a great way to see many animals and birds right from the lodge. Our guides Danny and Jorge were knowledgable and funny. They were very accommodating. The food was outstanding. We had the opportunity to visit the indigenous community and it was a wonderful...
