Property Description

Teeming with crowds of party-goers, bedouin-dressed backpackers, and full time surfers, Montañita’s nightlife and ceaseless surf is a winning combo. Selina is at the heart of this charismatic Ecuadorian town, sandwiched between electronic music venue ‘Lost Beach’, rows of thatch-roofed restaurants, late-night crepe stands, and colourful smoothie bars.

After morning yoga on the deck, refuel with a veggie-packed breakfast before heading to the beach with your surfboard. Plus, we offer activities like hiking, whale watching, and trips to natural attractions all just a 10 minute walk away. Explore La Punta, a rocky bluff with a stunning ocean view or Olón village, a local community shadowed by the cloud forest of the Chongón-Colonche mountains. Want to get productive? We’re home to the only cowork in town! Book a private desk or a meeting room and stay up to speed with your tasks while travelling.

Selina Montanita is a two-building property. When you book with us, you may be in our second property – just two minutes walking distance from the main building. Not to worry: you’ll still have access to all the common areas, including the pool!

I loved this hotel right on the beach. it was kind of empty when I went there but so was the rest of montanita. alot of people seem to have a problem with Selina and say it's too corporate? I don't really know what that means. I thought it was great, inexpensive, the staff was super nice, went surfing almost every day. there's a huge kitchen if you wanna cook. would definitely stay there again.
