Hosteria PapaGayo dates back to the early 1800s and occupies lands at almost 10,500 feet that were part of a hacienda where battles for the liberation of Ecuador took place in years past. Now owned by Eran Hayoun who arrived from Israel in search of a self-sufficient farm in the mountains, the country home opened its doors as a hotel in 2002 so that the landowner could share his experience with guests from around the world.
Guest rooms are named after different historical characters and themes, and are likewise unique in floor plan, decoration and amenities, which may include canvas paintings, intimate lighting, a private bathroom, bathtub, balcony, fireplace, kitchen with kitchenware, and heater.
Internet is accessible throughout the entire building, free parking is available and guests may relax in the Jacuzzi within a wooden gazebo-like space. In partnership with Gulliver Expeditions, the hotel offers excursions in the area, such as mountain climbing, visits to indigenous markets, bicycle tours and horseback riding.
