We had a lovely, but short, stay at Eco Quechua on April 25, 2015. It was part of a tour we had booked and we were so pleasantly surprised by everything at the lodge! The staff was super friendly, the food was good and we LOVED our room. We had a queen room on the second level with a completely...

Wow - staying at Echo Quechua lodge was like being in Peter Pan's treehouse or the Ewok Village - yes, it was kind of trippy,in a great way! Lush jungle, rushing river, mountains all around, and this cosy little lodge perched on its own rocky knoll in the middle of it... I wish we could have stayed for longer! It...

This review is far past due as we traveled back in Nov '14 but wanted to make sure to share experience. We were looking for alternative and unique places to stay away from the more tourist areas of Cusco and Aguas Calientes and certainly found that in the Eco Quechua lodge! Full disclosure...it is definitely more effort to get here...

Stayed at the Eco Lodge before hiking LLactapata. The hotel arranged to have us picked up at Hydroelectrico and to take us to the trail head for Llactapata the following day. The rooms were adequate. They food was good. They made a great box lunch for the hike. Swimming in the nearby hot springs was relaxing.

We stayed here for one night on our way to Machu Picchu-what a cool hotel! Don't be put off by the muddy road when you pull up, once you walk up the stairs you are in a comfortable treehouse-esque place with great views. The people were so friendly-I ended up getting stung by a scorpion and the woman working (I'm...

Santa Teresa is a very small village, and most visitors would be underwhelmed by the hostels and other accommodations in the town center. It is easily worth the 15 minute walk outside of town across the river to the Eco Quechua lodge. The owners are extremely nice, helpful, and speak excellent English. Breakfast, fresh bananas, and fresh avocados were all...

Don’t let the arrival from the Hydroelectrica train station, or the outright scary taxi ride, or the first impression from street level stop you from going forward. Don’t be put off by the muddy, unprivileged, semi-rural neighborhood; it’s authentic and that is why you are here. The lodge is up a stairway and like an oasis or treehouse, opening up...

I can not say enough good things about Eco Quechua Lodge! Upon arrival we were greeted with pisco sours and shown to a clean, open room and comfortable bed. The staff was so gracious and the food was wonderful! We really enjoyed relaxing in the common area listening to relaxing Peruvian music before dinner. I would highly recommend a stay...

I was skeptical: to me, an eco-lodge is one where they couldn't bother to build a real hotel. But once there, I could appreciate the alternative building techniques and distinctive atmosphere they have created. Unfortunately, the road construction out front was noisy/messy, but their food and service more than made up for it.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in the high jungle, it offers a lovely and tranquil getaway. Like a jungle lodge in the Amazon, some windows are open to nature so that you feel like you're part of it all (beds have mosquito netting). There's just something about this place that makes my stress melt away as soon as I arrive. Let me stretch out in a hammock with a good book and one of their awesome pisco sours and I can spends days at a time here, forgetting the outside world even exists. The entire lodge uses natural materials, including wood, rock, and bamboo, and its newest rooms feature private bathrooms. Ever dreamed of living in a grown-up's treehouse? This is that dream come true. The owners and staff couldn't be friendlier and are genuinely interested in ensuring that you have everything you need and are having the best time possible. Make your reservation includes dinner as these are bound to be some of the tastiest that you will have in Peru-lunch can also be added and breakfast is always included. Massages can be booked with advance notice and an outdoor Jacuzzi is currently in the works. The nearby Colcamayo hot springs are actually much nicer as well as hotter than those in Aguas Calientes, the town right below Machu Picchu, despite it being named after the springs. You are much better off getting your fill of the soothing waters here. Other outings that can be arranged through the lodge are zip-lining, a tour of a coffee plantation, and a hike to Llactapata, an Inca site from which you may catch a glimpse of Machu Picchu. If you're a coffee lover, the coffee plantation tour is highly recommended, mostly so that you can buy one of the world's best coffees, organic and grown here in the high jungle. To get here does require a bit of planning but don't let that keep you away. If it was any easier, there would be hordes and then you wouldn't want to go! Basically, you can either take the train or a bus. To take the train, you will need to get a ticket first to Aguas Calientes and from there to Hidroelectrica. At this point, you cannot buy tickets for the second leg until you get to Aguas Calientes so, if you are coming direct from Cusco or the Sacred Valley (recommended) be prepared to get off and have a cup of coffee until your next train leaves. From Ollantaytambo, the trip to Aguas Calientes takes about 1.5 hours and from Aguas to Hidroelectrica, about 30 minutes. The downside to taking the train is that it can be expensive and there are only a few trains per day between Aguas Calientes and Hidroelectrica. For this reason, you can't just go from the lodge to Machu Picchu and back in one day. On the other hand, if you're up for a hike, it's about a two-hour walk from Hidroelectrica to Aguas Calientes and it's a flat, easy trip. Taking the bus from Cusco is infinitely cheaper but will require a bit more investment in time. You will take the bus to Quillabamba but get off at Santa Maria. From there, you can get a shared car to Hidroelectrica and get off at the EcoQuechua Lodge. The entire trip will take between six and seven hours. Spend a couple of nights at the lodge, walk to Aguas Calientes, spend a night there, and then visit Machu Picchu first thing the next morning. You can then do the trip in reverse or take the train back. ... more   less
