Inti Kamari / Holistic Retreat Center & Eco-Farm

Villa -
13 Bedrooms , 27 Bathrooms , Sleeps 40
Santa Isabel, Azuay Province
Inti Kamari is a holistic retreat center which fosters a harmonious way of living outside the demanding vortex of city life and in unity with nature. Since transpersonal growth, gardening, education, and art have been such indispensable parts of our own journeys, we’ve worked to co-create a space in which a deep attuning to our inner callings is possible. Our ideals found a fertile breeding ground of 30,000 square meters in the ancient valley of Yunguilla, one hour from Cuenca.

As a self-sustained ecological farm, Inti Kamari (meaning gift of the sun in Kichwa) unfolds around three complementary projects:

1. A holistic retreat center for personal growth

The center is open to local and foreign organizers of any forms of self-development retreats that aim to promote creativity, reconnection, and the human potential. We are more than eag...

Interaction with guests
We are much less of a resort and more of a home with open doors. Inti Kamari is a family project that functions in many forms, so you’ll encounter us working on tasks around the property. We are fully available to answer any questions, arrange any necessities or just have a chat! We give our guests independence, but the staff is available if needed. We are pet friendly! Keep in mind, we do have several animals living on the property, such as dogs, cats, chickens, and even a small family of geese that hang out by the lake!

About the neighbourhood
Our space is located amidst the subtropical climate and mountainous vistas of Yunguilla Valley, just one hour away from the charming, river-side city of Cuenca (a UNESCO site!).

We arrange eco-tourism and hiking routes. We are located 8 minutes away from the astonishing 'Sulupali Desert'; 30 minutes from the second highest waterfall in South America, 'el Chorro de Giron'; 90 minutes from the national park of 'El Cajas', and an hour walk to a peaceful river.
How to get there
The nearest big city is Cuenca, located in the South of Ecuador.

Buses travel between Cuenca and Yunguilla Valley every hour and cost roughly 2 dollars. You can catch the bus from 'Terminal Terrestre' in Cuenca in the direction of Santa Isabel and ask the driver to stop at the entry to Quillosisa (a neighborhood situated 1,5km after the entry to 'La Union', on the righthand side of the main road).

From here, you only have to walk 5 minutes along the dirt road to reach our retreat center. You will see a wooden sign engraved with our name 'Inti Kamari', so its hard to miss!
