A comfortable and cozy wooden lodge set in lush tropical cloud forest just next to the Mindo-Nambillo reserve. Built from wood, the lodge is comprised of several cabins next to the forest and a main building with accommodation on the first floor and a main dining/lounge area with beautiful views to the forest and garden of native plants and humming bird feeders which are literally buzzing with activity. The lodge is very comfortable and cozy and has an indoor swimming pool and jazuzzi with views onto the forest which is great for relaxing at the end of the day. Birding is superb, both within the private 120 hectare reserve in which the lodge is located (which includes one of the 2 LEKs in Ecuador for the Umbrellabird Longuipendulo and several dozen species of hummingbird) and in the nearby reserves. Over 320 bird species have been recorded in the valley near to the lodge, with 20 species of humming bird typically spotted on a single day. One of the advantages of Sachatamia is its good access to the road, means it makes a great base to explore the nearby reserves like Mindo, Los Bancos and the Milpe and Rio Silanche Sanctuaries. For plant lovers, the reserve is home to a wealth of endemic trees, plants and wildflower species, orchids, bromeliads, heliconias and anthuriums.
Double, Single and Triple rooms available in the main lodge and forest cabins, all with private bathrooms, hot water. Room size can vary, so we will always request a larger room for our guests.
Good food with a combination of international and Ecuadorean cuisine.
Lots of easy trails through beautiful cloud forest, home to exotic orchids, amazing tropical birds, great for access to nearby cock of the rock LEK and other world renowned birding sites.
