On a 100-acre estate in an Andean cloud forest overlooking the city of Quito — is known for its electrifying mix of Ecuadorian tradition and sophisticated international tastes, qualities embodied in everything from its menu to its eclectic interiors, the personalities of the owners and the warmth of the local staff.
The hacienda has several cozy sitting rooms that are perfect for relaxing after a long day of touring the historic center or for just enjoying an after-dinner drink while gazing out over the lights of the city to the Amazon jungle beyond.

Rumiloma has seven spectacular suites, each featuring a unique mix of antiques, arts and crafts from the farthest corners of Ecuador. The bathrooms are stunning in that they possess antique bathtubs, bronze sinks and hand-painted lavatories.
The rooms in Rumiloma are built from adobe materials made on the property and combined with stone from the hacienda’s quarry.
All suites have large bedrooms, sitting rooms, indoor gardens and/or terraces and of course the best views anywhere in Quito.
