We offer a different and unforgettable, warm experience, with all of the amenities. Discover life underground, inside a cave full of history and myth. Fine cuisine, relaxation, and plenty of activities await you in a dreamy, old-style Andean setting, surrounded by nature, as if in a time warp.
As with any sculptor faced with a massive rock to be carved into a work of fine art, Álvaro Bustamante – the creator of this magical spot – had a dream and a clear vision. In the middle of the last century, with the grand city of Quito to his back to west, and the mighty Andes towering at his front to the east, Álvaro began to carve and chisel away into a giant hillside that would eventually become his home. His talents were many, but this one would prove to be his pinnacle; Tolkien would have been envious. The history of this old hacienda runs deep, and we want to share it with you in its completely renovated and decked out reincarnation, with all of the modern standards.
The hotel is located on a farm of 107 hectares where you can perform various outdoor activities such as horseback riding, climbing or trekking. In addition, our guests can make a pairing of matured cheeses inside the cave and wine, also cheeses can be made starting from scratch and then tasted during breakfast.
