This strikingly contemporary and plush 24-room eco-resort is set on 2,500 private acres of cloud forest surrounded by an additional 42,000-acre reserve. Renovated by interior designer Julio Vinueza, the 20 Wayra Rooms are small but intelligently designed, with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the jungle. Yaku Suites are augmented by soaking tubs with forest views. Excellent meals are served in the dramatic dining room, which features two-story glass walls. The bar serves exotic cocktails concocted with Mashpi and its surrounding forest in mind. Other amenities include two spa rooms and a wellness area with a Jacuzzi and yoga deck. Superlative naturalist guides lead educational talks and head a range of memorable excursions, including waterfall hikes, visits to a butterfly house and rides through the jungle canopy on a “Sky Bike” or open-air aerial tram. This lodge offers world-class bird-watching.
