Hacienda La Danesa is a traditional Ecuadorian working estancia that has ventured into the world of tourism with huge success. Niels Olsen, the son of the owner, has done a first class job in creating an experiential hotel in the balmy climate of southern Ecuador.
The Details- Hacienda La Danesa
The 500 hectare farm harvests teak, mango, banana, sugar, cacao and produces 1200 litres of milk per day, ensuring the 80 members of staff and 40 horses are kept busy throughout the year.
The Olsen Family originated from Copenhagen, Europe. The family spend their time split between the estancia and their home in the city of Guayaquil. Niels, the hotel manager is ever present ensuring everyone feels at home.
The ranch is located just over an hour from Guayaquil airport in South West Ecuador- making this hotel a perfect stop for all those looking for a traditional rural experience before, or after, a Galapagos Holiday. It also works perfectly for a more comprehensive Ecuador mainland itinerary.
The food at the hacienda is utterly scrumptious as you enjoy seasonal, local and organic food contemporarily cooked. Included are three meals a day that are served in the renovated stables where they have seating areas and tables for meals.

There are 6 stunning and very well thought our rooms located close to the renovated stables and the main family house.
