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 was travelling alone for the first time ever but felt very safe here and loved my little hut... More

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. If you want luxury and a hotel environment, this may not be for you, but... More

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

My husband and I had an amazing week in the amazon at Sani Lodge. Beautiful setting off the main river on a lagoon where you can spot for caymans at night, accessible only by paddle canoe so no nose of motors etc. We saw anaconda, tarantula, monkeys, caught piranha (I caught two!). ...many many birds and insects. Lovely clean rooms,... More

WE are in our 70's and very much wanted to visit this Eco Lodge. My husband is much more fit than I am. Why stay at Sani? 1.It is run entirely by the gracious Kichwa people and ALL proceeds go to improve the community. 2. It is away from the busy Napo River on a peaceful lagoon and since all... More
