The Best Spa and Boutique Hotels in Baños, Ecuador

Picture of Harry Stewart
Updated: 20 November 2017
Despite primarily being the playground of adventure-loving backpackers, Baños does have a number of chic boutique and spa hotels which cater for an older and more sophisticated clientele. Most come to bathe in the famous medicinal mineral water of the region’s many hot springs, some of which have been incorporated into upmarket spa hotels. Here are Culture Trip’s picks for the fanciest spa and boutique digs in the area.

Sangay Spa Hotel

Those after a little pampering within walking distance of the center should check into the Sangay Spa Hotel, a four-star haunt right on the edge of town. With modern décor inside an elegant colonial-style building, Sangay is mostly popular for its luxurious massage services. Located right across the road from the Cascadas del Virgin, ask for a waterfall view room to fall asleep to the soothing sounds of cascading water.

With just 10 rooms, La Villa del Peñón Inn & Spa is one of the region’s smaller boutiques.
