Hacienda Cusin

Beautifully restored 17th Century hacienda with great service.

Overview

Nestled in Ecuador’s Northern Andes, around 20 minutes away from the famous Otavalo market, Hacienda Cusin is one of Ecuador’s oldest haciendas and was converted into a charming country house hotel in 1990, preserving its history and ambience. The terracotta tile roofs, winding cobblestone pathways, courtyards and perennial gardens all add to the charm. There are 43 cosy rooms, suites and cottages, all with garden and snow-capped mountain views. The individually styled rooms have log-burning fireplaces, high-beamed ceilings and fine Andean Craft furnishings. There is also a bar, dining room and two acres of beautiful gardens.

Insider Knowledge
Hacienda Cusin was purchased at an auction from Philip III, King of Spain by the prominent Luna family in 1602. The purchased estate, an abraje or sheep farm, comprised of two valleys of Gualaví and La Rinconada, and all the land between the valleys and the lake, approximately 100,000 acres/50,000 hectares, held until Land Reforms in 1945 and 1964.
