Hacienda Rumiloma features an eclectic mix of traditional Ecuadorian and sophisticated international tastes in everything from the decor to the menu, from the guest suites to the personalities of our owners and staff.

The main building houses an outstanding restaurant featuring Ecuadorian-style fusion cuisine. The bottom floor has been converted into an intimate Irish/ Ecuadorian pub, complete with a walk-in fireplace. There are several cozy sitting rooms perfect for relaxing after a long day touring in the historic center, hiking in the surrounding hills, or just enjoying an after-dinner drink while gazing out over the lights of the city to the Amazon jungle beyond.

The exceptionally appointed suites scattered around the hacienda are amongst the finest in the country for travelers on a Ecuador tour. Each casita, or little house, boasts a minimum of 600 sq. feet. All are filled with a unique mix of antiques, art and collectables from the far corners of Ecuador. The guest rooms are the epitome of rustic luxury- pot bellied stoves, colonial art fluffy down covers, & spectacular bath rooms all housed within hand crafted walls of adobe and stone made and/or mined here on the property. All have cozy sitting rooms, spacious bedrooms and terraces or indoor gardens, and of course, the best views anywhere in Quito.

The hacienda backs up to thousands of acres of national park land with scores of trails, a small river, and llamas grazing peacefully. The property also boasts a wide variety of native birds and wildlife, and unspoiled acres of Primary Andean Forest filled with trees and wildflowers all within minutes of the capitol city.

Rumiloma offers it's guests a wide array of Activities while on their Ecuador tour:

Rumiloma has a firm commitment to sustainable tourism.
The owners have been committed to conservation for generations, and as such have been protecting and re-planting native trees on the property for over half a century. There are plans for the continued protection of some, and re-introduction of other Andean fauna with the cooperation of local experts. Rumiloma believes in a village attitude, and works closely with the barrio below the hacienda. We support them by purchasing from the local shops, hiring neighborhood craftsmen and service staff, and sponsoring local football clubs, dance troops and community food halls. We have implemented an array of different approaches in an effort to minimize our impact on the environment: from traditional water and energy conservation measures to some new and innovative strategies exclusive to Rumiloma.

The owners, Amber and Oswaldo Freire, pride themselves on exceptional service and personalized attention for all their guests. Amber, an American born interior designer and amateur chef was living in Ireland where she owned champion racehorses and ran a children's charity, which brought her to Ecuador. Here she met and fell in love with her husband Oswaldo, an hotelier and one of Ecuador's most accomplished mountain climbers, while climbing Cotopaxi. In the 6 short years since they met they have managed to build not only a large family (4 little girls),
but to make a reality of their dream to create a cozy, luxury adventure Lodge on the hacienda that has been in Oswaldo's family for over 60 years.

They have succeeded in creating the only place of its kind in Ecuador: A paragon of warm Ecuadorian hospitality with fine international service and cuisine. Only a few minutes above the hustle and bustle of the capitol city, Rumiloma is truly a little Andean Paradise just above the Heart of Quito.

The trip was terrific with great planning on your part. Most of the adventures were not mainstream and somewhat off the beaten path which made it especially enjoyable!! We felt taken care of and you all were readily available to respond to questions and issues. I would highly recommend your company and friends have already expressed interest based on our pictures and excitement.
