The Hacienda Abraspungo occupies a country estate, or hacienda, in the heart of the Ecuadorian Andes. The elegant furnishings and decoration complement the main building of stone and white plaster, and guest rooms are distributed around a Spanish gallery that opens onto gardens and a courtyard.
This atmospheric retreat provides the backdrop for modern conveniences and service—rooms have flat-screen TVs with cable channels, wireless Internet, and well appointed private bathrooms. Rooms range in size from singles and doubles to triples and suites, and some have balconies. All have views of the hacienda gardens and surrounding mountains.
Property amenities include a business center, massage services, game room, basketball court, and bike rental for visitors who wish to explore the national parks and picturesque mountains surrounding the property. Polo classes and mountaineering training can also be organized by the hotel. Custom tours and airport transfers are available on request.

The property is well-located as a base from which to explore Sangay National Park, Chimborazo, and the snow-capped mountains of the Andes. There are opportunities to go horseback riding, tour lakes nestled between the mountains, go trekking, and take the famous train ride from Riobamba to the Devil's Nose pass and the valley below.
For those who enjoy the hustle and bustle of Andean urban life, the town of Riobamba is ripe for exploration with its museums and quaint local shops. Tours to the indigenous markets of the region can also be organized, offering a brief window into Andean indigenous life.
Food & Beverage
The on-site restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and focuses on Andean cuisine using local ingredients cultivated using traditional methods. The restaurant is an inviting place, with musical instruments adorning the walls and a fireplace used to warm guests on cold mountain nights. The restaurant and its bar offer a full selection of wines and spirits, and can pack lunches and provide room service upon request.

Coming from Quito on E-35 (the Panamerican Highway), go into Riobamba and follow signs to La Prensa Avenue, which turns into Jose de Sucre Avenue. Continue along this road for a mile, and the hacienda will be well sign-posted on your left-hand side.
