Sacha Lodge is located within a 5,000-acre private ecological reserve in Ecuador’s Amazon region; an accessible yet pristine rainforest sanctuary where you and your family may enjoy a true jungle adventure in safety and comfort.
The lodging at Sacha was carefully designed to offer comfort yet retain the environment and rainforest feel. All the cabins, with high thatched roofs and private shaded terraces, are constructed with traditional materials and nestle well concealed into the lush surroundings. Each of 26 the rooms, which include single, double and (upon request) triple accommodations, contain a private bathroom with flushing toilet and hot shower.
All cabins are screened against insects, and contain ceiling fans above two comfortable double beds. During free time, you may overlook the jungle from hammocks and may spot toucans, agoutis and monkeys as you relax! You may also enjoy a raised lookout above the main bar and lounge, which offers a scenic view of Pilchicocha Lake and excellent opportunities to birdwatch.
Meals are served buffet style and offer a wide selection to choose from. Vegetarians are more than welcome, and the chefs will be happy to cater any special needs you may have upon request. During at least one evening there is a barbecue at the outdoor dining area, right on the edge of the lake. The bar offers a wide variety of cocktails, liquors, wine and beer to enjoy after an active day.
There are a wide variety of activities and attractions that will make each day a new adventure, catering to all interests and physical abilities. Here are just a few options:
