Hotels in Ecuador
When it comes to luxury, authentic accommodation Ecuador does not disappoint. There are some fabulous boutique hotels in Ecuador’s capital of Quito in excellently restored Colonial mansions with an almost forgotten grandeur.
The Colonial style continues in the luxury hotels in Southern Ecuador whilst the 5 star hotels in the Central Highlands take you back even further in time as restored remnants of the 16th – 18th Centuries! You’ll find the eco hotels in Ecuador in the Amazon where the priority is to offer modern 5 star accommodation whilst minimising any negative impact on the surroundings. The opportunities to stay on the Galapagos islands are very limited so as well as a small selection of luxury hotels we offer Galapagos cruises. All our selected Ecuador hotels are included in our Ecuador itineraries and are excellently placed for some of the top things to do in Ecuador.
