In June 2016, my husband and I held our destination wedding at the incredibly beautiful and scenic Casa Mojanda in Otavalo. It was, without question, the most perfect wedding venue we could ever have imagined and it exceeded our expectations in every way possible. Casa Mojanda is nestled serenely in the Andean mountains. The various structures on the property embrace...

We stayed at this small hotel for one night. We got here late in the afternoon and left the next morning after breakfast. It was a nice quaint cabin with a fireplace that stayed warm the whole night. There was a Japanese soaking tub that we didn't get a chance to use. The facilities are a bit outdated and the...

The Casa is situated up an unmade road height above Otavalo which proved difficult to find in the dark. However it was worth persevering as Diego runs a really fabulous hotel. We enjoyed really scrumptious lunches and dinners and really enjoyed our time there, getting to know the family a little and walking in the area. The wood fired hot...

We can wholeheartedly recommend Casa Mojanda. We had great relaxing stay in beautiful surroundings (views from each room on the hills and mountains). Food is very good and made with high quality ingredients. Owners of Casa Mojanda are extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the area. There are nice hiking paths that start from the property. You can try horseback riding....

We stayed here at the tail end of a 3 week trip to Ecuador. I can't imagine a more peaceful place to be, yet one with lots available should you choose more activity. Diego and Ana Maria are extremely gracious and knowledgable hosts, who were able to arrange bilingual tour guides and work with a shaman (in Mojanda's ceremonial hut)....

We spent 5 nights at Casa Mojanda. The place is beautiful, rooms spacious and comfortable, food was superb, and the staff extremely helpful and friendly. The location is great for hiking and day trips to Otavalo, Lake Mojanda, Cuicocha volcano, Intag Cloud forest and more. Highly recommend.

Just finished our First Annual Millennial Women's Retreat - what a home run, thanks to the staff, manager and owner. It made my job as facilitator much easier to know everyone on site wanted our retreat to be a complete success. The food, the hot tub, the pooches...it all made for a perfect place to bring our group. Thanks!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Casa Mojanda operates on the basis of a firm and ongoing commitment to the principles and practices of ecological tourism and contribution to the surrounding community. Casa Mojanda was designed to have a minimally intrusive impact on our local ecosystem and culture. We believe that ecotourism operations must at a minimum “do no harm,” and be sustainable socio-economically and environmentally, as well as harmonious with and actively supportive of indigenous traditions and cultures. When it comes to lodgings and resorts, we believe that small is beautiful. By keeping Casa Mojanda large in vision but small in scale, we are able to interact with our guests personally, and whenever there is interest, we will connect visitors with local schools, clinics and environmental projects. Each guest is a part of this ongoing process and your feedback and participation are most welcome. ... more   less
