Overview

Guayaquil’s first luxury boutique hotel which opened in December 2016. Part of Ecuador’s award winning Oro Verde hotel group, and built within a historic 19th Century property it is a real oasis of peace, and sophisticated elegance with a colonial edge.

Setting

What we really love about this hotel is its exclusive setting within the Parque Historico Guayaquil, which is located along the river and offers visitors an overview of the rich history, nature and culture of Ecuador’s coastal area. Set in lush tropical gardens and patios and only 10 minutes from Guayaquils airport.

Insider Knowledge

Within the botanical gardens of Guayaquil’s Parque Historico you can expect to see spider monkeys, iguanas and crocodiles in the ground’s wildlife sanctuary along with tropical macaws and hummingbirds. As well as the standard offerings you would expect of a hotel of this standard, a couple of nice details with this hotel: a lounge area accessible 24 hours a day with complementary coffee and juice and freshly baked cookies and pastries, a massage room located in the bell tower with panoramic views over the park and adjoining River Daule with the hotel restaurant also overlooking the River Daule and mangrove reserve. Our recommendation for guests booking this hotel, is usually to organise with us with one of our team of bilingual guides a walking tour of the Parque Historico, whose botanical gardens will give your guide a chance to introduce you some of the flora and fauna of Ecuador’s coastal region as well as learning about some of the fascinating history of this region.
