The history of “Hosteria Durán” started around 80 years ago, when a great entrepreneur and Cuencano visionary, Don Ricardo Duran Brito, decided to take advantage of the hot springs on his property in Baños, Cuenca. His project began after the construction of a small private thermal bath, which at first was for his family, but after was also visited by neighbors and friends. Mr. Duran started to raise awareness in citizens about the care of thermal water and its healing properties, so he decided to expand the facilities and make them available to the general public. Initially, the project was like a small resort that had two pools, a ballroom and a restaurant. After the death of Don Ricardo Duran Brito and his wife Doña Matilde Aleman, in 1964, his heirs formed a company and almost twenty years later, in 1983, the Hosteria Duran was inaugurated.
Today “Hosteria Durán” the inn of hot springs … as shown on its slogan, has 36 renovated rooms, swimming pools and hot Turkish baths, restaurant, cafes, sports facilities and ballrooms for every kind of event, which can accommodate from 15 to 350 people.
All this complemented with green areas and beautiful gardens, which despite the years, offers you a natural environment and the best manage of the hot springs water in Ecuador.
