The enchanting and exclusive Champanapampa eco-lodge in the popular tourist destination, Baños, envelopes you in nature and appeals to every sense, making this more than a relaxing retreat, but a true experiential respite from the modern world.
Located on 30 acres of land, just 5 minutes from the center of Baños on a private 30-meter road, Champanapampa is a beautifully handcrafted lodge catering to a small, but discerning group of international travelers from around the world, searching for the marvels that Banos has to offer. Champanapampa has consistently received a 9.4 booking rating from Booking.com.
Baños, known as Baños de Agua Santa, is one of the top tourist destinations in Ecuador attracting nearly 900,000 visitors annually according to the tourism agency of the Municipality of Baños, making this a great investment for anyone wanting to cash in on the ever-growing appeal of Baños and Ecuador as a vacation destination.
The lodge, nestled in the woods surrounded by mountains, lakes, rivers, rare birds, and flowers, has glorious views at every turn – and each area of the eco-lodge has views of the property’s 200 sq. meter majestic Chamana waterfall. Eco trails carved through the property offer endless opportunities to see the Ulba and El Silencio waterfalls, as well as panoramic views of the Tungurahua volcano, the Amazon, and the Sangay and Llanganates National parks.
The 1000 sq. meter construction area consists of three fully furnished bungalows, a family suite with two rooms, two one-room apartments, and a private rooftop residence found in an eye-catching and delightfully quirky tower (that can be turned into a meeting or yoga area and additional accommodations). On the premises, there are two additional rooms that could be turned into offices or made into additional sleeping areas, a workshop, a lovely restaurant, a large bar, and a fully equipped restaurant kitchen. The furniture, kitchen appliances, and tools, barware, silverware, plates, and linens are all included in the purchase price.
In this popular hosteria, art reflects nature and nature shines back through the symmetry, sacred geometry, and artistic windows (each with a different shape and size). Skylights bring in the sunlight and invite magical views of the starry mountain nights. All of the porches, terraces, and seating areas face the incredible waterfall.
Hand-built in 1994 by a German family (and current owners) the construction took nearly ten years to complete, with their vision of combining art and engineering so that the property became one with nature. Twelve different kinds of wood were incorporated throughout the lodge and unique materials, textures, and designs amuse and delight.
There is also an amazing sweat lodge where ceremonies and spiritual gatherings can take place. Additionally, there is a laundry, a caretaker’s house, 3 garages and parking for 10 cars, an outdoor bathroom, a workshop, and other outbuildings for storage.
Champanapampa is a hidden treasure and the perfect high-end luxury get-away, but the property could easily be turned into an international spiritual retreat, an executive conference center, a healing or yoga center, an exclusive spa, a sophisticated extreme sports training facility, and so much more The eco-lodge can accommodate up to 18 guests, but there is plenty of land for building additional sleeping quarters and casitas. The retreat also appeals as a luxury vacation residence for an extended familiy or a family of friends.
Perhaps one of the most alluring benefits of Champanapampa is its location in Baños.
The town offers nature lovers and scientists some of the best and most rare flora and fauna in the world.

And, after a long day enjoying the natural surroundings, there is nothing like a soak in one of the many hydrothermal baths dotted throughout the town.

Specialized spa treatments are also available throughout the city making it appealing to visitors looking to improve their health and well-being.
