Reviewed January 3, 2014

My family (13 year daughter & 11 year old son) spent 4 incredible nights at Hamadryade in November 2013. We stayed 2 nights in a single bungalow (which worked fine for 4) and then 2 nights in the 2 story suite which is an amazing and well designed bungalow with 2 full bedrooms and bathrooms. We did the class III river trip (which was essentially a private trip with great guides), hiked in the Jatun Sacha jungle (also private), and visited Amazoonico as well as the local Kichwa community. Sebastian is a great host who has built a beautiful property that is first class yet very remote and secluded. If you are looking for a small and intimate yet high quality eco lodge, then look not further than Hamadryade.

Room Tip: The suite is worth it if it is available

Hamadryade lodge is a beautiful, hidden gem in the amazon highlands. The owner of the lodge, Sebastian is so gracious and dedicated to providing a wonderful experience to all the guests. The lodge fits the environment perfectly, providing both comfort and a real awareness of the unique ecosystem we are visiting. The entire staff was helpful and delightful. Food was beautifully prepared and excellent, all local ingredients.truly a beautiful and peaceful oasis. Great time

We stayed in the Lodge for 3 days and wished that we booked it for longer. It is an oasis of calm, a perfect stylish retreat right in a middle of the jungle. Sebastian and Ambre were terrific hosts, designing and cooking meals that would not be out of place in top class restaurants in Paris or London. Sebastian is clearly passionate about the lodge and it's surroundings, which is infectious and got us wanting to experience more of the local culture.

The lodge has all the modern facilities, complete with a swimming pool, which was a definite highlight on our day off. perfect to just enjoy the sounds of the jungle, butterflies and birds fluttering around. A paradise!

Sebastian has built a spectacular retreat in the wilds of Equador. The only thing it needs is a yoga teacher and I'd stay a month. We appreciated his incredible energy and enthusiasm. The equisite meals, his restored old truck, his dog.

Room Tip: Any room would be amazing. If you have two couples, choose the family lodge. The design is superb.

After a three and a half car ride from Quito through some of the most beautiful mountains and their different environments, we enjoyed three nights at Hamadryade... lovely breakfasts of exotic fruits and crepes and delicious dinners al fresco. Our cabana, set in gorgious flora, was very comfortable with a sitting area and balcony looking out into the lush vegatation overlooking the Rio Napo, one of the two rivers which form the Amazon River. Surprisingly, there were viturally no insects at the Lodge. The staff was very helpful in planning the two days of activity, boating on the Rio Napo, visiting a tropical animal rescue shelter, AmaZOOnia, a 3 km walk through a native inhabitited island and a full day with a Kitchwa community, learning their ways of life as well as lunching there. These were full days of adventure ending at the Lodge with a waiting pool or a lounge to have a cocktal before dinner. The way of life at the Lodge is to sustain the environment with organic products in the bath and electric saving lights, none of which took away for the very comfortable way of living. The Lodge is a bit on the expensive side but worth it because of its uniqueness and concern with the forest and its sustainability. Well worth the stay! Thanks, Sabastien:-)!

Room Tip: There are five cabanas and all are a good choice.

My wife and I, along with our two young kids ( 8 and 6) recently spent a few nights here in January 2013
The lodge, accomodations, food, scenery, pool etc were all first class and I would highly recommend the lodge for anyone who is looking for a luxury jungle experience
Sebastian and Lisa were perfect hosts and had great suggestions for us to keep the kids thrilled ( white water rafting and visit to Kitchwa community etc)
P.S. The Vice President of Ecuador was there for a night while we were visiting.. kind of says it all

My family and I just came back from a one week stay here and we couldn't be happier! The eco-lodge is situated in the middle of the jungle, surrounded by beautiful sights and nature. Lisa and Sebastien, made us feel very welcome and comfortable staying here. They are very professional, happy, and were always quick to help our needs. My family and I were very happy to meet Lisa , Sebastien's manager. She is very hardworking and always does things with a smile. The hospitality we received from both of them was exceptional. The rooms are beautifully decorated and has views overlooking the green jungle, and even a river! The food prepared by Sebastein was also great. And the adventure activities offered at the hotel are amazing! Highly recommend river rafting and the night hike! Would definitely come back.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Hamadryade Lodge is a luxurious hotel located in the High Amazon region, near Puerto Misahualli. This ecosystem, even if it is still the Amazonian Rainforest, is very different that the one in Lower regions. We are at 500mts altitude with hills and small mountains. Therefore, the climate remains pleasant all year round (24°C in average), and the absence of swamps allows an easier access to the more remote zones of Primary Rainforest, and of course the most positive consequence, is that we do not suffer from the presence of mosquitoes and Malaria. ... more   less
