About Hacienda Zuleta

The Hacienda Zuleta is a unique hotel based in the midst of a huge colonial working farm which produces quinoa, wheat, milk, cheeses as well as many more fresh organic crops and wild stock. The property has been owned by the previous president of Ecuador (Galo Plaza) and his family for over 100 years; many of the original fixtures are still in place and the recipes used in their restaurant have been passed down through the family ensuring delicious dishes are served at each mealtime.

Accommodation & Facilities

Hacienda Zuleta offers fourteen individually decorated rooms each with breath-taking panoramas of the Andean mountain range and incredible gardens. Each has an en-suite bathroom and decorated with incredible antiques including a warming fireplace; each room tells a different story of the local area.


Many of the recipes used at the hacienda have been passed down by members of the family which live and run the Hacienda Zuleta. Although there are certain twist from other countries the menu is highly influenced by traditional Ecuadorian cuisine; many of the ingredients are organic- straight from the surrounding grounds from the homemade bread to the freshly squeezed juices as well as the succulent fish which are caught just moments before being served to the hacienda’s guests.
