Property Description

Situated on a hillside in Hacienda San Joaquin about 15 minutes from Vilcabamba is this beautiful hotel on 12 hectares (30 acres) of land that is just waiting for you to take it to the next level! As an unfinished project, it offers a wonderful opportunity to bring your own creative touch and design to it. It has the potential to become an extraordinary world-class hotel, resort & spa, and/or country home location.


The hotel is approximately 3,000 m2 (32,000 ft²) and is comprised of 17 private & spacious rooms and 5 large suites. Throughout the building are large open areas and high ceilings. The property has an estimated infrastructure cost to date of about 1.5 million dollars.


With 12 hectares of land, there’s much more to this investment than simply the hotel. There are several attractive building sites that surround the hotel, perfect for villas or country homes, a wellness center, a steam room and sauna, or an infinity pool that overlooks incredible views. There’s plenty of land to consider subdividing part of it into lots to sell or to use for other development opportunities. For example, you can build villas and houses as rental income or to sell individually. 


The views from this hotel and property are gorgeous and are some of the best in the area! To the east are the forested mountains of Podocarpus National Park, to the south is the famous mountain, Mandango, also known as the “sleeping Inca” of Vilcabamba, and to the west are more mountains that the sun sets over creating marvelous sunsets! Strategically placed all around the hotel are many large windows where you and guests can take in the views all day long! 


Vilcabamba is an ideal location for this to become an extraordinary hotel, wellness center, and country retreat. Vilcabamba sits at around 1500 meters (5200 feet) above sea level in the Andes mountains of southern Ecuador. It is renowned internationally as “The Valley of Longevity” and is one of the most sought-after areas in Ecuador for both nationals and expats to visit and retire in. It has one of the best climates in the world, pure air, clean water, and a relaxed lifestyle. 


Hacienda San Joaquin, the gated community in which this property is in, has an international community of residents and boasts a beautiful trail system on the over 121-hectare (300-acre) nature preserve with a riverfront park. Guests and residents can not only enjoy hiking around the hotel, but also can venture beyond Hacienda San Joaquin to other hikes in and around Vilcabamba. The community has 24/7 security as well.
