I travelled to the Sani Lodge with an intrepid group of 18 high school students and two teachers in March 2014. From the time we arrived at the Coca Airport, we were well looked after by the amazing Sani staff. The guides, accommodation, cuisine, and service far surpassed our expectations. Our guided excursions were excellent, well thought out and very... More

We were a group of four swedish families, staying here for three nights. I would strongly recommend this lodge - perfectly located by a small lake with great birdlife and with passionate staff and guides. Being one of the few lodges around run and owned by the indigenous local Community makes it even better!

Sani Lodge will certainly rank among your top travel/life experiences. The service here is surprisingly remarkable and a cut above the typical standards found on this continent, let alone in the amazon. They have an incredible viewing platform high in a giant kapok tree and all tours begin with a relaxing canoe ride. The guides and restaurant staff are excellent.... More

Sani Lodge is one of those rare places that you want to keep secret, I almost don't want to review it in case it becomes too popular and spoilt, but it is such a wonderful place that they deserve more visitors.

I spent three nights at the Sani lodge in August 2014. This was my first trip to the Amazon and I was traveling alone. I booked the lodge through a travel agent and was attracted to the fact that the lodge is owned and operated by the Sani Community. I had booked a shared cabin but I guess there weren't... More

We recently returned from a two-week trip to Ecuador, five days of which were spent at Sani Lodge. We had a wonderful time! The goal of Sani is to cater to each visitor’s interests and enjoyment, whether you are hardcore birders (which we were), or a couple on a romantic jungle adventure, or a family interested in wildlife and native...

My adult daughter and I spent 3 nights at the Sani Lodge and felt it was perfect for what we wanted. The lodge consists of a simple, open to the air building for meals and relaxing plus several decent sized huts/rooms for guests to sleep.

The structure is nice and attractive and offers reasonable comfort, excellent for the position, and awsome views of the lagoon. Nothing's really missing, the staff is friendly and helpful, the food is good and it'c ompletely owned by the Sani Isla community. It would deserve a higher score, but the weakest part are excursions. They're fine for a glimpse of... More
