Luxury Holidays At Mashpi Lodge

Mashpi Lodge is a contemporary eco lodge that sits on a plateau nine-hundred metres above sea level in the Mashpi Rainforest Biodiversity Reserve, which comprises montane rainforest and cloud forest. This unique position offers the nature-lover a phenomenal opportunity to discover the plethora of plants, birds and mammals that have made the rainforest their home, whilst enjoying the natural splendour of forested hills, punctuated by cascading waterfalls. There are plenty of activities to help you to discover more of your unique surroundings, from walks along nature trails to riding the lodge's Sky Bike above the forest canopy. Literally a hideaway in the clouds, guests can relax amidst the calming minimalist interiors, which serve to enhance the dramatic views of the forest from the floor-to-ceiling glass windows. As you may imagine, Mashpi Lodge is as environmentally-friendly as possible and has been built using sustainable techniques and materials, while water comes from the local rivers and is biologically filtered and treated before it returns to the forest. Bathroom soaps and shampoos, provided for guests by the Lodge, are all biodegradable, so that this process is not affected.

Wildlife Encounters

Mashpi Lodge is situated in an environment filled with a plethora of plant species, including ferns, bromeliads and orchids - many of which have been discovered fairly recently. Encounter 400 species of birds, along with frogs and trees that are not found anywhere else in the world. This amazing forest still plays host to undiscovered and newly found species found on Mashpi Reserve. Perhaps, you could be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the reserves stealthy and majestic Cloud Cats, which are in danger of extinction, or examine the forests for the many species of frogs and snakes through the many experiences available with Mashpi Lodge.

Hotel Experiences

One of the easiest ways to survey Mashpi Rainforest Biodiversity Reserve's beauty is by climbing the Observation Tower, which stands at twenty-six metres high and offers a bird's-eye view over the treetops. Visit at dawn or dusk and you may spot anything from a toucan to a raptor. Take a trip on the Dragonfly, a highlight of any trip to Mashpi Lodge, as you board an aerial tram that carries you under, through and over the forest canopy, with incredible views offering a unique insight into this extraordinary ecosystem and where the forest sounds create a symphony. Board the Sky Bike for an exciting way to explore the forest canopy up close, as you pedal at your own pace, crossing a striking gorge and a glistening river flowing beneath you.

Spa Breaks

Surrounded by natural beauty, Mashpi Lodge's spa is a sanctuary of tranquillity in the heart of the Cloud Forest. Reconnect your body and mind through a journey of rejuvenation, where tailor-made treatments can be organised to suit your personal needs and desires. Mashpi Lodge's grounds present ideal areas for meditation and yoga as you listen to the soothing sounds of the rainforest.
