Bellavista Cloud Forest Lodge & Reserve
A dream come true for every nature lover and bird-watcher, Bellavista has all the comforts necessary, while respecting the environment, in the Cloud Forest, in a quiet area well off the beaten track. Bellavista offers comfort, tasty and varied cuisine, and fine wines, combined with original and comfortable all-wood accommodation. The Colombo-British owners and all who work there believe in genuinely friendly, personal service.
They offer their guests a unique stay above the forest canopy! Some prefer the 4-storey geodesic dome, while others prefer the unusual Bamboo House, the half-timbered Trailhead House, or the secluded San Luis house. And for the budget-minded, there is the Research Station Hostel or camping options.
The 360 degree view from the dome offers views of the rugged peaks of the Pichincha and Cotacachi volcanoes in the distance. From the private balconies one can observe the magical activity of the forests.
The reserve has an excellent network of trails, over 10 km in length, ranging from easy to genuine adventure. 4 waterfalls are on the property of 700 hectares, all deep in the forest and truly beautiful. In this lofty paradise you can lie in bed and watch the sun rise over Bellavista or watch the mist lift from the deep valleys below.
