Perched on an Andean hillside a 2 hours drive north of Quito, La Mirage is a contemporary resort built on the grounds of a 200 year old Hacienda, in the year 1985. Fragrant hummingbird-filled gardens, 23 large exquisitely furnished rooms and suites, impeccable service, and gourmet food comprise the package that is the La Mirage experience.
Thanks to a bit of architectural wizardry, and lavish landscaping, each of the twenty three unique rooms and suites - no two alike - is laid out so that you gaze at the gardens instead of at the room next door. One unit may be L-shaped with crimson walls, while another will be decked out with a king-sized canopy bed and golden accents. Also, a 2 bedroom- 2 bath suite can be requested. All suites are equipped with comfortable large bathrooms with a shower and all the amenities one would require. The furnishings are an eclectic blend of local and European pieces of art, all distinctive, yet cozy. They have a separate sitting area, and a fireplace. A digital Phone system, high-speed internet access, a personal safe and a color TV with local channels and cable TV complement each accommodation.
Enjoy Breakfast and Lunch in the Hotel's glass pavilions, on the lawn, while watching peacocks strolling and hummingbirds flying by. At night, the four-course a-la-carte gourmet dinner (included in the price of your stay) may be enjoyed with impeccable service in the Main Dining Room. After dinner you will be asked if you want to have your fireplace lit. If your answer is yes, it will be crackling by the time you get to your suite.
The elegant and unique covered Pool and Spa Area, should not be missed. La Mirage Spa offers a large range of various types of massages and treatments, including Reflexology and Aromatherapy. At La Mirage it is also possible to witness the healing powers of a female Shaman who has inherited years of experience from her father, a recognized Shaman of his own in this region. The Purification room at La Mirage is oriented towards the established indigenous healing practice for Body, Soul and Spirit.
