“Eclectic beauty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

I really liked it! You can take a hamac for bird watching in the dawn... a drink with "Tito" at his cozy bar, plan some day trip to the mangroves.. enjoy the meditation deck in the middle of nature.. Surrounded by eco-farms and organic products for sale. Bromelia is also very close to Montañita, Manglaralto and Olón beaches. I recommend it.

Clean, cozy and beaufitul. The perfect spot for a relaxing get away, I enjoyed the nature, the yoga deck, the comfortable rooms and breakfast. The owner, Tito, makes you feel like home. If you are looking for a place surrounded by nature and peacefulness but still very close to Montañita´s surf point and night life this is the place.

Wonderful connection to the tropical forest yet minutes away from the hottest , most unique surd town in South America. Only thing I would like to see more of is the menu choices. The bungalows were great for a honeymoon or a peaceful retreat. Almost forgot the ocean was minutes away!

I first met Tito, the owner of Bromelia in December of 2012 during my first visit to Montanita. He was finishing up Bromelia and it was clear that he was building the place the way he wanted to make it.
I came back a couple of months later in April and let me tell you that Bromelia is a reflection of its owner: Soulful, laid-back and a place where you can let your hair down.
It is beautiful there to say the least. And the sweat and the work that Tito put in shows. Rooms are large, spacious and each with pieces of art that come from Tito's own family.
The birds are chirping, there's a stream flowing in the valley. So when you step out at any time of day, you will feel...peaceful. And ready to do some self reflection, or practice yoga in the outdoor studio that he has built, or sit in the dining area and have the wonderful conversations about life that can only be had in Montanita. That or head out for the beach and have a great surf, which is only a quick jaunt from Manglaralto where Bromelia is located.
I was so amazed when I first set foot on the property. And you will be too.

Stay one night in Bromelia and you will feel your inner spirit and beauty brought back to light. Stay a week in Bromelia and you will know a peace and positivity you can only find in nature that allows you to fully recharge your mind and body. You can spend one on one time with the owner, and get to know the other guests in the awsome outdoor lounging/ eating area surrounded by singing birds, a river, and all of mother natures great beauty. I love it there.... the rooms are all so stylish and comfortable....great food, great service...It's the FULL package... Do some Reiki, yoga, running, movie nights outdoors or just hang in one of the hammoks around the property... I would recomend this retreat/healing center to all of my friends and family!! Thank you for always making it a special time when I am there!

Just 5 minutes away from the beach and the craziness of the famous party town of Montañita. Relax on the grounds situated in the surroundings of peaceful rivers, birds chirping and the aromas of fresh air and flowering trees. The perfect place to heal any hurt - mind, body, and soul. Helpful and caring staff. Make friends with people that you will want to know for life. Comfortable rooms and delicious food.

At Bromelia Nature Lodge, you feel as though you're right in the middle of nature. It's so peaceful that you can feel your wellbeing and happiness reserves being topped up, as if you're plugged in and on charge. It's soul food, just spending time there. A river flows through the grounds and there are trees (covered with bromelias!) and plants all around. You can see some crazy birds right from the bar area and the sounds of nature are a constant soundtrack. It's also really stylish! The rooms are done up in a cool, quirky style and the bar area has loads of funky ornaments, like buddha statues (and a wicked sound system!). There are lots of comfortable places to sit and chill, whether you feel like being sociable, or spending some time by yourself. The owner, Tito, is a great host and also happens to be a Reiki master. Bromelia is set on a peaceful road in some beautiful countryside, but the town of Montanita, with its awesome point and beach breaks and kicking nightlife is only a few minutes away. All in all, Bromelia nature reserve has everything you could want.

Room Tip: I like the one with the really quirky oil painting on the wall, of two fellows playing cards!
