One and a half hours north of Quito, Hacienda Pinsaqui is ideally located at the flanks of the Imbabura Volcano and in the heart of Ecuador lake province. It is just a stone’s throw away from the world famous Otavalo handicraft market, Cotocachi leather town, and the small town San Antonio renowned for their wood handicrafts. Hacienda Pinsaqui with it’s three centuries of history is an experience in itself and is by far the right hotel choice in Otavalo.
In 1790 Hacienda Pinsaqui worked as a colonial textile enterprise with thousands of weavers exporting their fabrics to the United States. Today, this Otavalo Hotel still retains the authenticity from its earlier incarnation and is a unique travel experience.
Illustrious historic figures have been hosted through the ages at Hacienda Pinsaqui including the revered liberator of Ecuador, General Simon Bolívar. In the late nineteenth century the historic peace agreement between Colombia and Ecuador, the “Treaty of Pinsaqui”, was signed in the manor house.
Each room is unique and has a character all of its own. There are 30 suites with fireplaces that comfortably accommodate up to five people. Within the rooms you will find sheepskin rugs, heavy blankets and pieces of traditional art. Most rooms have a view overlooking the lovely gardens behind the hacienda.
The restaurant is beautifully decorated with white stone walls, deep blue curtains, historic art and huge windows giving onto the captivating landscape beyond. The restaurant, which caters to both vegetarians and meat-eaters alike, offers three meals a day, ranging from light meals such as soups and sandwiches, to more elegant dishes including fish, meat, and pastas. Try the typical Ecuadorian soups, the fresh fish and rich desserts.
In the cavern bar, enjoy the cosy atmosphere of the open, crackling fire and the collections of family regalia, and admire the historic equestrian equipment, from worn leather saddles to dusty horse show medals - this room is redolent with history. Sip one of the cellar's many fine wines, or enjoy "canelazo" by the fire, whilst browsing the photos, prizes and plaques which all attest to the tradition of the hacienda.
