Following our company´s principles of social responsibility, Palmazul Hotel and Spa has benefited the local community by employing 13 residents and training them to offer a service of international quality, always maintaining the human warmth that characterizes Ecuadorians.

The difficult task of selecting and training staff without prior hotel experience, both launching an excellent service and capturing the essence and sympathy of the locals, was the work of Jéssica Meza, the owner of the hotel. Jéssica´s vision is to ensure that Palmazul is a very special place for you to enjoy to the fullest.

The warmth of Palmazul Hotel & Spa mirrors the effort and affection of a whole family; Ines, Jéssica’s mother, is in charge of the operations and administration of Palmazul and will make your stay an experience to remember and repeat; Julio, her father was in charge of delivering a solid and durable construction.

Cintia and Kike, siblings of Jessica, support her in online sales and the presence of Palmazul in social media.

When arriving at our facilities, you will be able to verify that you will be treated as one of our family.

Palmazul Hotel and Spa was co-founded by the Norwegian businessman Kjetil Haugan who has an extensive experience in the tourism industry of Ecuador since 1994 and Jessica Meza, a tourism engineer who started her career at the age of 16 and opened her first travel agency by 19. Together they are pioneers in the luxury tourism industry and founders of important companies in Ecuador.
