My SachaJi , is the ideal place for nature-lovers, wellness-seekers, mountain-enthusiasts, or for those just looking to relax and re-connect.

The 11 room boutique hotel designed by Green Architect Ecuador’s Native Maria Teresa Ponce,  is located 97.6 km. north of Quito, and minutes away from Otavalo, known for its famous indigenous textile and craft markets, musicians and colorful festivals.

SachaJi is a pioneer of sustainable architecture in Ecuador…

Screen Shot 2016-06-19 at 3.06.24 PM

One of SachaJi’s main objectives is to show their guests the different ways to live in spaces that are environmentally sensitive as well as aesthetic, comfortable and contemporary. Throughout the design and construction process, architect and owner Maria Teresa Ponce focused on creating the least environmental impact possible. Bricks were made from the earth excavated at the site, used tires below floor slabs were used as thermal and seismic insulation, green roofs were used to reduce CO2 emissions and trap heat inside, a rain re-collection system was created that doubles the amount of water it can collect, and for each wooden door, a tree of that same species was planted on site. These are but a few details that make SachaJi a true homage to nature.

All our visitors receive a short tour and explanation of how Sacha Ji was built, so as to promote our concepts and solutions on building with an environmentally friendly approach.

From Land to Plate…

Screen Shot 2016-06-19 at 3.08.02 PM

SachaJi was reforested with native Andean trees, creating two forests that embrace the Main House and the two blocks of guest rooms. Species include Pumamaki, Polilepis, Aliso, Nogal, Capuli, Guaba, Chin Chin, and Cococumbi (an Andean palm on the verge of extinction).

Their gardens connect the Main House with the guest rooms, offering a unique experience of colors and local flowers. These also attract local birds and bees.

Their organic fruit and vegetable garden runs along the whole length of the property. As an extension of the architecture, this garden also follows curved forms and spirals that circulate energy and create a unique experience for its visitors.

Their vegetable and fruit garden also includes a section of medicinal plants and spices that can be directly accessed from the dining area and kitchen. Learn about what our plants can do for your health.

The gastronomic experience at SachaJi is very much part of the whole…

Screen Shot 2016-06-19 at 3.04.23 PM

SachaJi’s Cuisine is part of the experience of Sacha Ji. It is mainly organic, made from local ingredients and oriented towards a vegetarian diet, though meat-based menus are also available. Many of our ingredients come from our organic fruit and vegetable orchard, which you can access directly from the dining area. Menus have been designed by our collaborator and prestigious Ecuadorian Chef, Henry Richardson. Chef Richardson has over twenty-five year experience re-creating and re-discovering the great variety of traditional dishes originated in the highlands, coasts and jungles of Ecuador. For him, cooking “is an art that involves the five senses” and it is also “a fundamental balance between taste, texture and color”.

We also offer natural herbal teas from our orchard that can benefit your digestive system, help you sleep better or boost your energy.

Why Ecuador?

Screen Shot 2016-06-19 at 3.14.14 PM

Ecuador is a small country divided five distinct natural geographic regions, each with its own rich biodiversity: the Galapagos Islands, the Pacific Coast, the Amazon Rain Forest (Jungle), the Cloud Forest and the Andean Sierra (Highlands). Within a few hours you can go from the highlands to the coast and visit the cloud forest on the way!

It is named after its geographic location on the equator, an imaginary line that divides the northern and southern hemisphere.

SachaJi,  is conveniently located 90km north of Quito airport, making it a perfect stop before or after a Galapagos or Jungle Tour.

Extended Biographies for each Crew Member

Mayra McCullough

Mayra McCullough is the Founder and President of Coach2Edify Foundation (C2E), an Oasis of Transformational Fitness, also a Master Trainer and Body Integration Specialist. She has defined Body Integration as a holistic approach to fitness that intends to integrate all components within ourselves, in order to become whole and intrinsic to the world around us. 

6 years ago, after a highly successful tenure in the acclaimed world class gym Equinox, she was inspired to dedicate her personal training practice to empowering individuals to take full responsibility of their well-being in order to attain wholeness on a daily basis.

The systems that have emerged through C2E are designed to establish a culture of authentic, meaningful and deep self-care DAILY, at HOME, FOREVER. This culture of eliminating the constant stop and go patterns of truly loving ourselves in consistent action leads to Body Integration, which enhances our ability to be intimately connected to the vast information and capacities for the body’s regenerative qualities to emerge.

Her classes are filled with intention and deep attention to the body as it talks to us and shows us all kinds of interesting things about ourselves. She facilitates inner dialogues with all of our bodies: the physical body, the mind body, the emotional body, and the spiritual body, among others. From bodyweight calisthenics to rhythmic movement, her sessions flow with pure intuition, and the joy she experiences as she shares her gifts is always contagious. Not only does she help you work things OUT, and become OPEN and CONNECTED to your body, but her intention is to daily find our equator, our center, and our truth through her guided meditations.

Becoming whole is the first step to what she calls reaching baseline. We live in a time where this is no longer a lofty goal but a tangible reality that only requires immense LOVE IN ACTION towards ourselves. The next step, as she sees it, once we have reached that baseline, which she measures by simply looking at our ability to be in the frequency of love, joy & gratitude MOST of the time, is EXPANSION, increasing our capacities, in order to match the challenges of the times. When we increase our capacities, we evolve. Evolution is part of our natural process as a species, conscious evolution is when we can infuse love to our powers and the world around us with the intention of creating the world we want to live in. It has become evident to her throughout her 10 year practice in the health & fitness industry that in order to expand, we must co-create, we must follow our yearning for community in in order to create the world we want collectively. It became evident for Mayra that solo-entrepreneurship was not the way.

Since C2E’s inception she have been drawn and inspired by the concepts of co-creation, which she learned about from world renowned visionary Barbara Marx Hubbard as well as the 30 year old non-profit Global Family and their book The Co-Creators Handbook, which has been a guide to practice with likeminded sisters, such as Dr. Kalec and Nancy Hawkins, processes that foster our ability to join others in resonance and shared genius to fulfill our heartfelt purpose.

What you are about to see is the culmination of 13 years of research and development that was initiated with her deceased husband’s passing as she searched for practical ways to keep her peace in the midst of crisis. We are all constantly in crisis this day and age, we are all on the same boat of uncertainty about our financial future, about attainability of sound governance in our country, about the lies that we have believed, and the truth to uncover. We are all walking with huge questions that need to be addressed, reflected on and taken action upon. We are living at a time where becoming whole and having a deep sense of belonging to the world around us needs to be embraced as if our life depended on it, because it does.
