We arrived at the Luna Runtun late last night and really couldn’t see much because it was dark, but we knew we were in special place when we walked down the meandering stone paths and opened the door to our rooms. Both of our rooms have big picture windows with the most spectacular views of the mountains. It is such a calm peaceful experience staying at the Runtun, so please just enjoy the pictures.

Every morning we walked up to the Luna Runtun restaurant to partake of all the fresh fruit, eggs, fresh baked bread and the best bacon we had ever tasted. The thing we looked forward to the most was the fresh squeezed blackberry juice. We could never afford to make that in the States.
The Active Volcano That Was Only Four Miles Away
The volcano actually shook the windows in the restaurant one night.

The Luna Runtun is nestled on 300 acres within the Sangay National Park a declared World Natural Heritage Site, located in the Andes, at the entrance of the Amazon Rainforest, with a spectacular view of the Tungurahua Volcano, the valley of the city of Banos, the Pastaza Corridor “A gift to the earth” and the Llanganates National Park, the inaccesible mountains that hide the lost gold of the Inca Emporer Atahualpa.

For Valentines day the guys treated us to pedicures, facials and rose petal baths. We finished off the following day with a full body one hour massage before dinner. Now this is the life!
