Tranquility. Peace. Balance.
Itamandi EcoLodge offers sustainable travel and ecotourism vacations to one of the most interesting and diverse places in the world: the Amazon Rainforest. Just a 4-hour car and a short canoe ride away from Quito, situated along the banks of the Arajuno River and 20min. from Tena, our eco-friendly destination is the perfect setting for an amazing jungle trip combined with luxury accommodation.
The natural sanctuary of Itamandi creates an undisturbed world where guests can escape from noise, pollution and stress imposed by larger cities. The lodge was carefully planned to offer comfort to the traveler, while preserving the surrounding environment and wildlife. In addition, the lodge feels authentic, airy and comfortable with its high walls and ceilings. Architecture techniques were used to cool down the temperature of the lodge and the rooms without the need of air- conditioning.
Itamandi EcoLodge consists of 19 private rooms of varying sleeping configurations and several public gathering spots, including the spacious dining room, an open-air bar, a majestic pool and an observation tower. A raised and roofed boardwalk connects all of the guests lodging to the several large communal areas at Ittamandi EcoLodge.
Our Restaurant offers a wide variety of dishes with a national and international touch. All meals are made with fresh, local ingredients. A buffet service is available for breakfast and
lunch, and table service for dinner. Itamandi EcoLodge can cater for special diet requirements including preparation of vegetarian meals upon request. The open-air bar offers freshly squeezed juices, soft drinks, beers, wine and cocktails. Enjoy a drink at night overlooking the river and the pool!
