Although Arasha is located in a beautiful setting, it promises more than it delivers. We stopped at the restaurant coming back from the beachfront and the food was not good at all. It was also expensive for what it was.

Not far from Quito (2 hs by car), in the middle of the rainforest a lovely place with all basic services except TV or radio, you can enjoy of a very comfortable single room with its own full bathroom in a "tropical" native fashion. There is almost 30 activities to be done, most of them included into the regular package price. Very nice pool together a "cave" jacuzzi. Restaurant offers several exclusive dishes and depending on the package all meals might be included. A place you should not miss in Ecuador!!

This resort is very beautiful, with lush fauna, flowers, birds and butterflies everywhere. It is the perfect place to unwind, find your balance, and be with nature. The food is amazing and the service top notch. We had terrific spa treatments at very reasonable prices. If you are traveling South America via Ecuador, I highly recommend a few days here at the beginning or end of your tip.

it was great fun and very interesting to be IN the rainforest and enjoy the flora and fauna: birds and tarantulas and toucans and orchids and making chocolate and rings out of nuts. The food was great as well!!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2010

We went there for three nights annd two days and our experience was pretty nice! We had a lot of fun and of course we left stress behind. In the Arasha resort are some activities but if you want to have a better experince in the place you should really visit the blue or the green waterfalls. They are nice to see and to arrive there u will have to walk and walk and walk so you will do some exercise which is also very good. The only problem: you will have to pay extra money to get there, it means 15 per person, but its not too much and u will have fun there. Inconclusion, the resort was pretty cool, the food is excellent and there is a lot of ffood at all times so dont worry about it. Rooms are clean and the staff is frineldy. We really liked the place.

Arasha is a very beautiful natural resort which offers a lot of nature with spectacular view, wonderful flora as well as fauna. Kept my attention the big number of birds that I found in such a small area. They have very attractive colours that camouflage so well with the nature especially with the bright colours of the flowers.
I found a lot of activities while I was here and I was busy most of the time. I enjoyed very much the warm water on the pool surrounded by wonderful flora and the sound of the water on the cascade.
This experience made me feel in the middle of the forest. I have to say the walks inside the resort are well planned and I congratulate this resort to keep the nature.
