The design and style enable total immersion through its floor-to-ceiling panoramic glass windows. Like a cathedral to the natural world, Mashpi is a perfect blend of luxurious comfort and engagement with one of the world’s most stunning environs.

Placed at a former lumber mill, Mashpi Lodge was built using the latest techniques in sustainable construction in order to blend in perfectly with its natural environment, respecting the natural space it occupies. Stunningly contemporary, Mashpi Lodge makes for a true cocoon of luxury in the middle of the forest.
