Las Tanusas Hotel and its surrounding villas are located in the Manabí Province of coastal Ecuador. This eco-friendly, beachfront retreat is close to nature reserves, fauna-filled forests, and Isla de la Plata.
Many of the hotel’s staff were raised in the surrounding villages. Their deep connection to the land is evidenced in a ‘green’ school project, designed to raise awareness about rainforest conservation and ethical harvests. The hotel’s owners have also started community programs focused on responsible food production, nutrition, and protecting the environment.
Amenities & Services
Las Tanusas features direct beach access, a spa with hammam and sauna, gym, and free WiFi throughout the hotel.
Outside the main house, near the bar, there’s an ocean-facing heated pool with a bamboo-shaded deck, a periwinkle hammock, and a sun-lounger.
The bar’s signature cocktail is the ‘Sol de Manabi’ (rum, passion-fruit juice, and cinnamon). You can also enjoy their homegrown iced Limonada de Coco (coconut lemonade).
BocaValdivia, the hotel’s restaurant, is inspired by the ancestral customs of the pre-hispanic cultures that have inhabited the area for approximately 12,000 years. BocaValdivia is the creation of renowned chef Rodrigo Pacheco. His new-Ecuadorian cuisine features forest-scavenged fruits, cacao, fish, and crustaceans that showcase the Manabí Province in full flower.
