Luxurious rooms with extremely comfortable beds. Bath was spacious and water was hot with plenty of pressure. Upon arrival, we found a plate of fresh fruit and flower petals on the bed. Our room had a small sitting area, with an additional TV. The spa was wonderful; indoor pool, hot tub and ice bath along with sauna and Turkish bath... More

Stayed here one night as part of a tour. Just a lovely place we'd come back to on our own in different circumstances. Rooms spacious. Beds comfortable. Grounds amazing. Relaxing pool and hot tub. Great massage experience. Good food. Friendly, attentive people. Even the peacocks were friendly!

We spent 2 nights at Samari SPA and enjoyed our stay. The hotel is beautifully situated a couple of minutes with taxi outside of town and they have peacocks running around the grounds which was a fun element. The rooms are large and nice, the food and service was good and we enjoyed the SPA one evening. The downside is... More

The grounds are beautiful, and well-kept. Peacocks wander about, as well as chickens and roosters. Our room was spacious, and we had a great view of the mountains from the room. A few annoyances. Banos gets cold at night, and the rooms have no heat. They are equipped with fireplaces and the staff will arrange to build a fire and... More

A stunning construction quietly set in the heart of Baños where you can heighten your tastebuds and relax in the spa. The surrounding views are just divine. The staff were most welcoming and helpful with information of local tourist attractions.

This is a old monastery refurbished and modernized, the staff could not be more helpful, to be honest the price is not bad, because it has all you need to be pampered and relaxed. The restaurant is top of the line. Every corner has history is located at just 10 minutes from the city of Baños Ecuador.

Samari Spa is probably the nicest looking hotel in Banos. The grounds were well kept and the numerous peacocks living there were really cool and interesting. It seemed like Jurassic Park or the TV show Lost. It was a bit eerie, but really cool at night! The restaurant, bell and spa staff were really friendly and helpful. The structures itself... More
