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.
