Arasha Resort and Spa - Ultimate Relaxation in Tranquil Surroundings
The Arashá Resort and Spa is located in the western rainforest of Ecuador, which is known as the most bio-diverse area in the whole world. The rainforest has over 35,000 species of plant alone, of which fifty percent of these are widespread in this area. There are also over 664 species of amphibians and over 500 species of birds contained in an area that is slowly decreasing in size due to the encroachment of humans.
The name of the resort originates from an exotic fruit found only in this region. From Quito it will take you about two hours to get to the ecologically sensitive thatch-roofed bungalows that have been designed beautifully and decorated using local flavor. Each of the twenty-seven luxurious bungalows come with two rooms and a spacious bathroom incorporating both a bath and a shower.
The Arashá Resort and Spa will keep you fully entertained with a wide selection of activities to choose from. Take a refreshing dip in the swimming pool and dive under the delicious cascading water featured there. If you are thirsty don't worry - you don't have long to walk as there is a bar attached to the pool with waiters just waiting to take your orders.
If you want something a little more private then spend some time in the Jacuzzi, which you will find inside a cave adding to the atmosphere. If entertainment is what you are looking for then enjoy the theatre or the two restaurants providing exquisite cuisine. Something else you should look out for is a little chocolate factory, where you can see how chocolate is made from cacao seeds and buy a few treats to take home. These are just some of the facilities provided for the guests staying here.
If you are looking for something a little more active, then take a hike into these amazing rainforests where you will be blown away by the beauty and the unique birds and animals you will see. When you come back a little more relaxed, you can take it a step further and indulge yourself at the Arashá Spa with one of their treatments. You can choose an aromatic full body massage to release all the tensions you have acquired at home, or you can select reflexology, a choice of beauty treatments and shiatsu as a means of relaxing.
The year 2006 was a wonderful time for those at Arashá Resort and Spa after they were internationally recognized for the personalized service, beautiful accommodation and the delicious food that they continue to provide.
