We live on the beach north of Bahia and wanted to spend a birthday weekend some place romantic and Saiananda was. Thanks Alfredo for creating a beautiful setting along the Chone River just south of the city of Bahia de Caraquez. Our suite over the river was so tranquil, private and it seemed that the whole river was ours... Our...

My 2 children, mother and I stayed overnight at Saiananda. The recommendation turned out to be more than we expected! The owner greeted us himself within his jawdroppingly gorgeous foyer. We loved the eclectic décor and the hushed peacefulness of the atmosphere. We had a comfortable room with a porch overlooking the water. We spent time exploring the property which...

We did not stay in the hotel, we only went there for dinner. It was very good! Only vegetarian food, the owner himself will cook for you. It's a very beautiful house with loads of dogs and even a cute grumpy old sloth. Great food, great value for your money and the owner is super nice. TOTALLY RECOMMEND IT!

Saianando is a magical paradise! We almost didn't stay here as we were trying to find places with a pool or beach for our kids, but we are so happy we didn't miss out on how amazing this place is and wish we had stayed longer. It was a highlight of our trip to Ecuador. Our kids loved all the...

They have so many water plants which I loved. They have turkeys and other farm animals. The restaurant has and unbelievable and relaxing view. With...

We were wonderfully surprised. The aura of the property is filled with beauty, peacefulness, and comfort. Our room was beautiful, sitting over the water. Food was prepared by hand in a beautiful kitchen viewed from the dining area. I can't say enough about Saiananda. I took over 100 pic in one evening.

Truth be told, we had to book on short notice and it was one of the few places left with room for us within the area. Don't get me wrong, it was pretty good for an ecological place... in touch with nature, peaceful and it had a couple of pets. But we really missed air conditioning or at least a...

What a nice surprise to discover this amazing spot just south of Bahia de Caraquez! Quiet and relaxing, very good food and service. Alfredo, Pilar, and the entire staff were attentive and pleasant, and the location right on the Chone River is spectacular. I look forward to our next visit!

“Select the room that overlooks the water. When the tide comes in the water is all all around and beneath you. You can watch the tide come in from your balcony or within your room through the section of glass bottom floor. There are peacocks on the property and can be noisy but their sounds are truly part of the experience.”
