Our 11 cosy rooms, nestled subtly into the hillside with views to the volcano or lake, are the ideal retreat for when the mist rolls in and the grounds are lit by the stars.

Fitted with king size beds or two twin beds, a fireplace or energy-efficient heating systems, duvets, thermal windows, and thick blackout curtains, rooms also come with a poncho to wear, like a warming Andean embrace.

All rooms have a private bathroom, and have been individually decorated with Andean rugs, hand-embroidered shower curtains made by the local community, contemporary Ecuadorian photography and 18th century Spanish wooden windows, all giving each room its own character.
Our unique connection to nature is no more apparent than in our showers: water for bathing comes fresh from rainwater and nearby waterfalls, heated by the sun.

    • Super spacious room which includes a king size bed and sofa
    • Spacious double room with two twin beds

About us

Meet the My SachaJi family

Passionate about service

The holistic experience at My SachaJi would not be complete without our dedicated team of staff, who, as experts in different fields of wellness, each contribute an important element.
As well as being a brilliant, intuitive manager, Thomas is also a shaman, on hand to assist spiritual healing, while lead therapist Cynthia is an expert in transformative and stress-busting therapies.

From the local community, Doña Rosita is an Indigenous traditional medicine practitioner as well as a midwife, and brings a wealth of ancestral knowledge to her Andean cleansing treatments and community volunteer programs.

Even our sales manager, Denise, is a certified Kundalini yoga teacher, dedicated to wellness and to helping others realize their potential.
Chef María Cecilia brings fine dining to the Andes from her native Argentina, creating a delicious, balanced and sustainable culinary experience.
The great majority of staff members come from local communities in the area. Their innate warmth and kindness is a common trait of the Andean people, as is their strong connection to the land and their culture.

Owner and founder of My SachaJi, María Teresa Ponce, is an architect, photographer and yoga instructor, bringing together all her passions in the ecolodge. At this gay-owned hotel, up to 20 percent of the women employees are gay, an unusual total in Latin America.

And it would be impossible to talk of the My SachaJi team without mentioning our family of animals: rescued dogs Valentino, Filia, Aura and Siri the cat, plus llamas Panchito and Juanita who help us trim the grass!

The spirit of the Andes

Where we are

Mere kilometres north of the equatorial line, the Imbabura region is imbued with a strong indigenous culture, taking form in spirituality, traditions and bonds with the earth, as well as hosting a renowned artisanal market in the town of Otavalo.

My SachaJi is the perfect springboard to discover the Andean highlands and its treasures. We can help you arrange trips to indigenous craft and food markets; crater lakes; Cotacachi, a town famed for its leather; historic haciendas; Quito Old Town, and the Middle of the World.

Join the award-winning Tren Ecuador for a fun and historical train journey delving into some of the country’s most intriguing landscapes and communities.

Meanwhile Imbabura is a great base for adventure, from hiking up the Imbabura Volcano, rock climbing and water skiing on the lake, to horseback riding and mountain biking.

“Just being at SachaJi brings a feeling of connection to nature, beauty, harmony and the history of the Otavalo area.”


“At first I didn’t know what a healing hotel meant, until I visited SachaJi.”
