I think there are only 9 tents. These are luxury tents, meaning lovely beds, in tent coffee tea, air condition unit, and full bath shower. Yep, it just doesn't get any better than this. It's the perfect tenting experience for me!
The location is in the "highlands" and is very much remote and out of the main touristy areas. This is a plus because you are just surrounded by nature and have amazing views of the land and water. This is also a minus because it is far from town and you will require a taxi driver to get to anything. Despite this, it was perfect for us. We really liked not having to see a ton of people.
As others have mentioned, the food is fantastic. Definitely not typical ecuadorian cuisine but so delicious. They have excellent chefs / cooks there doing a great job!
There are some very cool things happening on this property:
Cool Thing 1: they are starting a cacao farm and will soon be growing high quality coco beans.
Cool Thing 2: they are environmentally focused and have built their resort around this value, they collect water and actually have enough to sell back to the local businesses. Very smart!
Cool Thing 3: Manager Katherine is outstanding in her hospitality. She and her team made our stay wonderful. They helped set up all of our activities.
I can't recommend this property enough. They only have 9 tents, so if you can get this place, go for it!
