Mashpi Lodge, Ecuador
12 April 2017 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Whereas the first program underwhelmed me as the hotel was basically three towers with a surf board on top, at least the Mashpi Lodge does look special.

There are lots of hotels built in a jungle environment. This is a remote trek to get to, well at least you have to drive for miles on a dirt road.

Mr Roque Sevilla, a former mayor of Quito bought large acres of the Ecuadorian tropical cloud forest that was due to be logged in 2001. Sevilla built the lodge on the grounds of a defunct sawmill with a vision of conservation, sustainable development and jobs for the locals who were loggers now retrained.

The lodge whose rooms can cost £1000.00 per night offer all sorts of eco-activities such as zip-lining and gondola cable car rides as well as treks to the outside jungle to see flora and fauna. It also challenges for the hotel to be maintained in the humidity surrounding it. Some of the rooms have to be repainted every three weeks.

As always Monica gets stuck in to her tasks, Giles less so, acting like he only became famous of the Coren name. Then again Giles realises these tasks are only inserted to make the show look less like a travelogue and pads it out as well. Giles did do his penance by eating a rat like creature, a guinea pig to be exact.
