Gracefully perched on a hilltop in the town of Cotacachi, the elegant La Mirage Garden Hotel & Spa provides a tranquil respite from the hustle and bustle of travel. Only three hours from Quito, La Mirage is an ideal way to wind down from your Galapagos cruise.
Your opulent accommodations gaze out to the lush gardens filled with bougainvillea, hibiscus, rose and orchid, and a dramatic backdrop of mountain scenery beyond.
Each of the 23 rooms and suites are unique, and richly furnished with Ecuadorian and European period pieces. En-suite facilities, separate seating areas and a welcoming fireplace to warm the crisp mountain make your accommodations a welcoming retreat.
Dining at La Mirage is a treat for all the senses. Breakfast and lunch are served in the glass pavilions overlooking gardens with pastoral views of peacocks and hummingbirds.
A three-course à la carte gourmet dinner is served nightly in the formal main dining room.
Also on site, is a magnificent spa offering a range of massages and treatments including aromatherapy and reflexology.
Try the unique services of a local female shaman, trained in the ancient healing arts by her father. A specially designed Purification Room plays host to established indigenous healing practices for mind, body and soul.
From your base at La Mirage, you can venture into the center of Cotacachi and browse the leather shops for which it is famous.
On our Ecuadorian Countryside extension, enjoy a trip to the nearby artisan market town of Otavalo, returning in the evening to relax and indulge in the comforts of La Mirage.
