Considering this five-star boutique hotel & spa’s plentiful amenities and services, Casa Ceibo has quickly earned a reputation for being exotic and luxurious — a destination, impossible to forget. Apart from the numerous excursions offered within the region, Casa Ceibo’s wealth of onsite amenities and activities are intentionally designed to satisfy every need, wish and whim.
While guests may venture off-site to explore regional attractions, the best-kept secret (they say!) is indulging in Casa Ceibo's riches. Award-winning, gourmet dining, an exotic poolside setting, excellent fitness and massage facilities, modern conveniences and technology, the serene, bayside setting, plenty of privacy and first-class service make the stay at Casa Ceibo truly exceptional.
The five-star hotel is South America’s only Green Star Diamond Award winner, an honor bestowed by the American Academy of Hospitality Sciences . The award recognizes Casa Ceibo as a distinguished leader in South America’s hospitality destinations, as well as for its commitment to earth-friendly efforts and community sustainability.
First Impressions, Unforgettable Memories...
The 12,000-square-foot hotel sits majestically amid three acres of native trees, plants and flowers. Over 50 species of birds flitter about Casa Ceibo, giving it the feel of a nature reserve. It’s perfect for bird watching, and leisurely strolling amid a sampling of the flora and fauna that’s endemic to this region of the world.
Every vantage point within Casa Ceibo gives guests a glimpse into Ecuadorian luxury. Simply exploring the hotel is an intriguing experience for all who visit. Just outside the main entryway, Ceibo trees, along with a kaleidoscope of colorful shrubbery, play alongside the red-clay, fully lighted tennis court. Tennis equipment is available at the front desk, courtesy of the hotel.
Sipping a frosty fruit beverage while walking about this boutique hotel, guests immediately notice an uncompromised integrity in architectural design and aesthetic décor that's set a new standard for luxury accommodations in this region of the world. The estate is strikingly modern, bright and open, detailed with an exquisite melody of stark white columns and walls, polished woods, glimmering glass features, comfortable furniture, a magnificent chandelier, and South American artwork for accessories. From authentic, museum-hung masterpieces to locally made ceramics and even ancient fossilized relics, the conscientious approach to detail is impressive.
Two floors of rooms, complete with French doors opening to the pool, gardens and bay views beyond, extend from the main lobby, where Casa Ceibo regularly serves hot teas, coffee and tasty treats prepared by its gold-medal, award-winning chef. Off the lobby — within earshot of the hotel’s indoor waterfall — a lower area offers guests a few semi-private areas for gathering to enjoy a large-screen TV with a selection of favorite movies, some quiet conversation or a good book. This is also an ideal spot to do a little work and take advantage of the hotel's complimentary Wi-Fi. A state-of-the-art, soundproof conference room provides a comfortable space for smaller, executive meetings or private gatherings.
Exotic Dining & Luxury Drinking...
Casa Ceibo’s gourmet restaurant and bar, just a few steps up from the main reception area, is one of several ways to access the hotel's outdoor terrace and patio area. The mosaic-tiled pool, which features a heated whirlpool, swim-up bar and grill, sparkles like a jewel. The meticulously manicured lawn stretches from the pool to the bay, buffered by the hotel’s reforested mangroves. Many of our guests just spend their days at Casa Ceibo lounging about — relaxing in the poolside cabanas, indulging in the award-winning gastronomy at the outdoor bar and grill, and exploring the beauty of the gorgeous, waterfront gardens.
Impressive Fitness Facilities & World-Class Spa
Another key hotel amenity, Casa Ceibo’s fitness center and full-service spa is located just off from the pool. Top-of-the-line exercise equipment, weights and radio satisfy the thirst for aerobic adventure, while the spa’s diverse menu of massage treatments helps release and reinvigorate the mind, body and spirit. International travelers have said these massages are among the best in the world. All services and packages of treatments are provided by Casa Ceibo’s professionally trained therapists and available upon request. After a relaxing massage or intense workout, guests can sip a cocktail of choice on the hotel deck, swing in one of the garden hammocks, or enjoy the sunset from the hotel's secluded watchtower.
Bayfront Beauty & Ample Amenities
Down by the water, a long dock rolls out like a church aisle through the reforested mangroves and over the bay, providing the perfect setting for hors d’oeuvres and a cocktail. In low tide, the dock is a flurry of activity — hundreds of scarlet crabs scurry about the coastline, while fishermen float by, leisurely casting their modest nets from chalk-colored boats. Docked at the end of this boardwalk, Casa Ceibo’s private pontoon boat, panga, and kayaks rock on the quiet waters, awaiting the use of adventurous guests.
An Internationally Renown, Award-Winning Destination

With all this and more, this boutique hotel and spa strikes a crucial balance in hospitality, offering all the comforts of home alongside an experience that’s redefined luxury in this region of the world.
