For millennia, people have intuited and felt the magnetic pull of Quito, where one is closer to the life-giving power of the Sun than any other city in the world. Here in the high Andes, shadows are banished on the equinoxes and solstices at midday, and there’s just pure light. It’s an exceptional place, where ancestral knowledge is still very much part of the living culture, where we still feel a bond with the earth.
Located off the hotel’s quiet flower-filled garden, Casa Gangotena’s new spa celebrates this energy. The sanctuary’s menu honors the vast and varied biodiversity of the land, the wisdom of millenarian cultures, and the passed-down knowledge from the cultural mix that shapes Ecuador.
