Hotel Oro Verde Manta
More than thirty years ago, Kaspar and Ljuba Manz, a Swiss hotelier and his wife along with some friends, were exploring Peru and Ecuador. On his way to Guayaquil and while crossing the immense banana plantations of the province of El Oro in southern Ecuador, Kaspar described the obvious richness of the region as Oro Verde, or Green Gold.
Once in Guayaquil, he and his friends were forced to stay in a small and very humble hotel, near the central market, since the only hotel that suited their requirements was completely booked. After a very poor night’s sleep, he decided with his partners to build the first luxury hotel in Ecuador, today’s Oro Verde Guayaquil.
More than a decade after this great undertaking and with the idea of broadening the the ambition of their hotel project further, in 1998, the group inaugurated the Oro Verde Manta. It remains the first and only 5-star hotel in the city. With 20 years’ experience under its belt, it is the benchmark of tourism and gastronomy in the province of Manabí.
The project will soon become the first 5-star hotel and resort in the province, which boasts huge tourism potential. We proudly celebrate our staff’s dedicated service ethos, our beautiful facilities and green spaces, and our leadership in Ecuadorian and international cuisine, with a special emphasis on the delicious dishes of Manabí.
