The Nymph who lives in the tree
A wonderful name that evokes the conservation of nature, that in Greek mythology means, “the Nymph who lives in the tree and dies with it when they cut it.” Being a difficult name to remember, it forces us to repeatedly search our imaginary to understand it, becoming more and more intriguing and wonderful every time, as it is to visit this incredible place that makes us daydream.
To get there from Quito we take the via Papallacta and continue to Tena via Archidona, passing through one of the most scenic and wondrous tourist routes of Ecuador, which takes us from the Avenue of the Volcanoes to the Amazon. We drive through incredible places appreciating the different types of vegetation that displays in the various zones and altitudes, which allow us to take advantage of perfect opportunities to make unforgettable photos.
This idyllic Lodge that fuses the essence of France with the Ecuadorian Amazon is located a few kilometers before Misahuallí. Their young and friendly managers are French, and they definitely honor that origin, because their gastronomic abilities in the kitchen are truly incredible.
The gastronomy at Hamadryade Lodge is literally unforgettable. It uses products from the Ecuadorian Amazon, fuses them with the ancestral techniques of French cuisine, and adds a touch of Peruvian flavor. The end result are creations to which the very Ecuadorian phrase “to lick your fingers,” can be applied, because it perfectly frames the reaction that provokes this unique proposal.
The lodge is designed to mimic with the environment, and has been built with selected materials that privilege respect for nature and its conservation, allowing guests to truly become one with the environment and enjoy this incomparable beauty.
The five suites, which can be thought of as idyllic cabins within the forest, are exquisitely designed and incorporate all self-sustainability systems to allow an almost indescribable style of enjoyment. The orchestral sounds of the Amazon with its majestic biodiversity unconsciously pamper us and transport us to a different universe, where perfection is possible.
The restaurant, lounge and pool are located in the main house, and here is where guests participate in a magnificent atmosphere of conviviality and harmony, an environment that is transmitted by the managers of this wonderful Hamadryade Lodge. New friends of all imaginable nationalities come together to share their experiences in these areas that are surrounded by spectacular views of the Amazon rainforest.
The place is perfect to enjoy peaceful moments and also to experience various adventures. Several activities can be coordinated from the Lodge, which will be accompanied by certified guides with great experience. Different points of tourist attraction, such as boat trips along the river, walks through the jungle, bird watching, visits to Amazonian communities, among other activities can be organized from Misahualli.
