“Thank you for an amazing time spent at Hacienda Zuleta. We leave happier, more refreshed, wiser and larger in the stomach than we came. Wonderful, wonderful things happen here.”
Dating from the late XVI century, our Ecuadorian Hotel lies in the spectacular Andean mountain range of Ecuador at 9,600 feet (2,800 meters) above the sea level, and only two hours north of Quito, the capital of Ecuador. Zuleta is a colonial working farm of 4,000 acres (2,000 hectares) that belongs to the family of Mr. Galo Plaza lasso, a former president of Ecuador, for more than 100 years. It was chosen as one of the world's "Top Ten Finds" by Outside magazine and named as one of the best Ecuador Hotel by National Geographic Traveler.
The hacienda has 14 beautifully decorated bedrooms, all with their own fire place; Antique gardens along with cosy living and reading rooms offer a peaceful atmosphere. Delicious home Ecuadorian cuisine among other types of gastronomic adventures are offered daily, prepared with organic vegetables, trout and dairy products produced on the Hacienda.
