My family and I booked a two-night stay at Arasha due to a previous positive experience my sisters had had (years ago). Boy were we disappointed. It is shameful that for the premium price Arasha charges, everything would be so mediocre. Some of the highlights: - The restaurant is god-awful and expensive. Instead of luring people back with great food,... More

Located a couple of hours from Quito, within the rain forest you can find this spa and resort that was nothing like I expected. The facilities are excellent, specially the spa. A tropical setting, given that the area has year round rainfall, however, the temperature is very warm. The pools are also heated and there are complimentary umbrellas outside every... More

Beautiful place, the vegetation is amazing, waking up to the sounds of nature and surrounded by fog was a great way to start the day. The hotel bungalos are very spacious and clean, staff is very hospitable. Food in the restaurant is good. The hotel offers various nature activities.

We paid for the all inclusive package, which gave you 3 meals and use of all the facilities. I would recommend taking this package because food... More

The hotel/location is beaufiful. It feels safe and the staff are very accomodating to requests. The landscaping is top rate and the food is good. The rooms need a complete make over - they seem dated and not to the level of the rest of the property.

Stayed there for 2 nights. The experience is mixed. Let's begin with the positive side. Wonderful surroundings. It gives you an excellent experience of rainforest without the bugs. We were not bothered by any insect during our stay. We heard that they use some type of trees that emanate some odour that keeps bugs away. Also they use yellow lights.... More

We heard it used to be a great place but it changed. Now they are building a subdivision there, so you are in the middle of all this neighbourhood of private houses, there are trucks, and machines working all day and part of the night, noise and dust everywhere.
