Hacienda Cusin

Location
Otavalo, Ecuador

In the heart of Ecuador's Sierra at 8,500 feet, Hacienda Cusin welcomes guests seeking a gracious experience of a historic era, amid some of the country's most dramatic Andean scenery. Situated on a lushly landscaped 5-acre estate, the restored colonial hacienda is just over an hour's drive from Quito's new international airport and a short distance from the market town of Otavalo. Built in 1602, Hacienda Cusin was purchased at auction from Philip III, King of Spain, by the prominent Luna family. The estate, which was a sheep farm at the time, comprised 100,000 acres until it was divided during land reforms in the mid-20th century.  

Today the hacienda offers 25 guest rooms in a variety of settings, from garden cottages to suites and salons in the main house. All have mountain or garden views. Most have log-burning fireplaces and beamed ceilings, and each is individually furnished with antiques and regional Andean arts and crafts. All rooms have armchairs, writing desks and en suite bathrooms. The hacienda's dining room features fine international and Ecuadorian cuisine, while drinks are offered at the adjacent coffee bar in front of a roaring fire. 

As warm and inviting as the interiors are, the grounds are an even bigger draw. Perennial gardens, ponds, tropical plants, several hundred stately trees and more than 60 different kinds of flowers beckon guests onto the cobblestone paths that wind among the verdant grounds. A multitude of birds including peacocks, and even llamas on occasion, are found in the gardens. Guided horseback rides from the hacienda stables, mountain biking and nearby hiking are among the available options for guests who choose to arrive early.
