The ecolodge features 12 brand new state of the art eco-suites with Private Balconies and Panoramic Windows. The exclusively designed suites have ample bathrooms, including rainforest showers. We also upgraded our family and traditional suites. The remodel has increased the lodge’s capacity to accommodate a total of 50 guests.
In addition, the brand new restaurant and bar area has incredible views of the Garzacocha Lake.
Our new restaurant provides gourmet organic food using local ingredients from our very own garden. Our French chef, Aime, is passionate about helping the local community, and has started a program, working alongside the locals to grow food native to the area. Aime specializes in vegetarian and raw food.
Imagine getting a massage or spa treatment surrounded by Amazonian butterflies! Our elite Butterfly Spa is the first of its kind in Ecuador and in all of South America.
Our 135 foot Observation Tower that sits atop a giant kapok tree is currently under reconstruction, expected to be ready the summer of 2013.
Located in the heart of the Amazon Rainforest basin of Ecuador, La Selva Amazon Ecolodge & Spa has been in successful operation for twenty five years. We are a highly respected jungle lodge in South America and recipients of the “Ecotourism Award” at the World Congress on Tourism and Environment.
La Selva Amazon Ecolodge & Spa is located on the border of Yasuni National Park around sixty miles from the town of Coca, down the Napo River (one of the main tributaries of the Amazonas River) and one mile inland from the river itself.
GETTING HERE is half the fun!
On your departure day our representative will meet you at the Quito airport one hour before departure time. Boarding passes will be distributed and our staff will help you check your luggage and assist you throughout the entire check-in process. You will also receive a short briefing about the journey.
La Selva Amazon Ecolodge & Spa works with TAME or AEROGAL airlines. After a 30-minute flight you will arrive in Coca where our representative will help you with your luggage and transport you to the city’s main dock.
At the dock, a motorized canoe will be waiting to take you down the Napo River. During the ride along the river, which lasts about 2 ½ hours, each guest will enjoy a boxed lunch.
At La Selva’s main dock, the lodge staff will help guests with their luggage (carry-on baggage, as well as camera gear will be the guest’s responsibility). After a 15-minute walk, guests will board a paddle canoe to cross the beautiful Garzacocha Lake, an amazing start to your jungle visit.
Approximately 15 minutes later, the resident manager will greet you with a delicious welcome cocktail. From there you will continue on to relax in the bar area with a fresh tropical fruit snack and a short briefing with general information about the lodge and activities, provided by one of our bilingual naturalist guides.
