About Hacienda La Danesa
This is the hotel for anyone looking for an unforgettable experience. Hacienda La Danesa is a family-owned farmhouse that promises its guests so much more than a bed and some breakfast.
Tenets held dear here include family, land, kindness and environmental awareness. Everything is catered to a five-star level while remaining constantly conscious of the effect both on guests and the surroundings. This hotel takes you right off the tourist trail and lets you meet the real people (and animals) of Ecuador. Choose to stay in a private cottage, the converted stables or in the farmhouse itself – every room is authentically decorated and furnished.
There’s also plenty of opportunity to explore the local area. Head over to a neighbour’s hacienda to ride horseback with buffalo or join the From Bean to Bar’ chocolate workshop. There’s always an option as well of a massage in your private garden. Or for the more adventurous, get up close to 100,000 bees, under the careful guidance of a professional beekeeper.
Meals here are convivial and familial but there is always an option of in-villa or private dining, should you choose. With a strong farm to table ethos, every meal is an experience.
