Sacred Mountain
Nestled on a quiet mountainside in the Andes of Ecuador, a short distance from the historic UNESCO city of Cuenca, the renovated 160-year-old hacienda welcomes guests into the serene comfortable homelike environment of this private facility. The grounds offer a restorative Zen garden, walking paths, as well as beautiful organic gardens and an orchard. The hacienda is surrounded by an expansive balcony and a man-made waterfall as well as the pool. The sun beams down on the Owl’s Nest Oasis providing plenty of sunshine and gentle fresh breezes bringing fresh air around the hacienda every day. Our guests, when relaxing outside or enjoying the spacious interior of the hacienda, enjoy a totally toxin free environment in which to heal. Even the pool, an Ecosmarte one, uses only oxygen and copper to maintain its pristine state. The hacienda’s many common rooms offer beautiful vistas and cheerful gathering areas, yet allow for as much privacy and quiet time as may be desired.
With comfortable rooms, spacious modern bathrooms, beautiful patio settings, gourmet meals and personalized attention, it will feel as if you are on vacation at a five-star resort. To learn more about about the Owl's Nest Oasis, please contact us today.

Ecuador is a beautiful and diverse country – from its differing array of Pacific beaches to the breathtaking Andes Mountains, from the ecological wonders of the Galapagos Islands and the Andean jungle, this country offers both great biological and geographic diversity and a similar diversity of indigenous cultures. Over 140 species of hummingbirds, 3500 orchid species, 4500 butterfly species and much more await your discovery. Within the borders of this country, barely the size of Nevada, live more than 14 different indigenous peoples. Every corner offers an opportunity to discover fascinating handicrafts and intriguing cultural heritage.

​The Owl’s Nest Oasis is located in the Andes Mountains near the UNESCO World Heritage city of Cuenca. From the cobblestone streets and the more than 52 old world cathedrals to the three rivers flowing through the city, Cuenca abounds with history and culture. Within city limits one can visit historic Incan and pre-Incan sites, amazing cultural museums and enjoy foods from around the world. Medical care is world class with most doctors having studied and practiced medicine in their specialties in North America or Europe.
