The Incredible Beauty and Tranquility of this place will not disappoint.
If you want to hear the calls of the jungle this is the place for you. We had such an amazing time at Sacha lodge and learned so much about the Amazon forest that this place calls home. Our guide Christian was so kind and really knew everything that we were curious about and explained everything with patience and truly made our experience fun. The staff at the hotel were always attentive and the hotel manager Fausto went out of his way to make sure all of the guests had what they needed an that everyone felt Covid safe. The food was really really good and not exactly what one might expect so far from civilization. They really do a great job. Thank you all for such as great time. We enjoyed out jungle stay.
Beautiful Amazon Retreat
Sacha is a gem! Tucked away on the Napo River, the lodge itself is wonderful. The facilities are state of the art. Rooms were extremely comfortable and clean. The food was outstanding. Our private guide was excellent and knew very much about the rainforest!
We had an incredible time at Sacha Lodge, the food, the stuff, the rooms, the place, the jungle, the canoe rides, the activities - everything was amazing! Christian, our guide, was excellent! Also our kids (1 and 5 years) were so happy to experience the jungle! Would definitely recommend!!!
A unique Amazon experience
The Sacha Lodge is tucked away in the Ecuadorian Amazon. After a flight into Coca, you will take a short taxi ride to their arrival area while waiting for a boat. The boat ride will then take approximately 90 minutes, from there you will take a brief 20 minute walk to some canoes, where you will have another 20 minute canoe ride to the resort. Your guide (or someone from the lodge) will meet you at the initial arrival area and fully assist with getting you safely to the resort (as well as doing the paddling in the canoes). The rooms are spaced out and very modern and cozy. Each room has a little patio with either a hammock or a seating area. The room is restocked daily with water bottles. The restaurant is very nice and the food is high quality. Breakfast is in one area, sometimes lunch is over there too, but mostly you will eat lunch in the main bar area. There is a full bar with lots of tasty options. I don’t believe it was on the menu but we ordered several Frozen lemonades. Basically a lemon slushie. PERFECT for cooling down after a humid hike. Their juices were more like smoothies and very good. I ended up ordering many strawberry/pineapple juices that were very tasty. Time will be spent touring the area. Hikes through the various paths learning about the plants, bugs, wildlife and history of the area. You will check out the awesome bridges and towers as well as canoe through various areas looking for caimans, birds, snakes and other animals. The resort is very eco friendly, so eco friendly and natural that they don’t use pesticides. There were a few smaller spiders and bugs inside our room. Not a huge deal...but at night did see many spiders and tarantulas. If you’re like me, you probably haven’t seen many giant spiders unless they were in a cage in a pet store or in a museum. It’s a little creepy and surreal. There is also a “pool” which is basically just a blocked off area of the lake. Swim at your own risk of course. We never did but I think it might be ok if you were really hot and didn’t get any lake water in your mouth.... The entire staff was very helpful and attentive. I would definitely be open to coming back again.
Manager Francois and team run perfect ship! Particularly enjoyed the food (great veggie options available), the guided tours, the clean and well-designed and appointed rooms, and relaxing in the common areas. Guide (should out to Miguel) was super keen and knowledgeable of the area, and knew where and how to find local animals, birds and plants. They have 'spotting' infrastructure including towers above the jungle canopy. Everything was well-planned and executed... we felt relaxed and immersed in activity at the same time. One of the best things we've done in Ecuador. Delightful place to spend a week. They also take COVID seriously and had precautions in place. Highly recommended.
