Concierge.com's insider take:
The only Relais & Chateaux property in all of Ecuador, this converted 200-year-old hacienda is a hidden gem perched on an Andean hillside two hours north of Quito. The whole resort feels like a spa, with landscaped gardens that seem designed for wandering in a robe. As for the spa itself, it's the focal point of the resort, to be sure, with an indoor heated swimming pool and volcanic clay treatments on offer (there's even a resident female shaman for indigenous purification rituals). As exotic as that may sound, there's also something very familiar and comforting about the European-style resort. All the expected modern amenities are on offer here: high-speed Internet, cable TV, turndown service, and attentive staff who unobtrusively seem to intuit your needs and appear just when you need them. Each of the 23 rooms has a view of the gardens in bloom with dahlias, bougainvillea, roses, and hibiscus flowers. Size-wise, the rooms range from spacious to palatial, with slightly over-the-top châteaux decor including draped tapestries, canopy beds, chandeliers, and even fireplaces in the separate living rooms. Daily American breakfast and a four-course dinner are also included in your room rate.—Cathay Che
