Experience a taste of the Peruvian Amazon at this rustic jungle lodge which offers excellent service and cuisine.
Exotic yet reachable, this charming lodge sits on the banks of Madre de Dios River and offers an unforgettable introduction to this amazingly biodiverse realm. As you step from your boat onto the riverbank you’ll feel as though you have been transported to another world. Winding wooden walkways lead through the forest, framed by towering trees, tangled vines and flowering plants. Electric blue butterflies flit past and the chorus of birdsong is broken by the distinctive call of the howler monkey. The thatched lodge blends in with its surroundings and the two-storey Amazon Pavilion is the lodge's social hub.
Creative cuisine is served in the dining area which is stunningly built around the trunk of a strangler fig, and the bar is a popular spot for cocktails. There is also a comfy lounge and balconies for bird-watching and stargazing. The lodge offers a superb programme of activities and excursions so that you can explore this amazingly biodiverse region in the company of expert naturalists. Choose from boat rides, nature walks, wildlife spotting and canopy walkway adventures. The duration and difficulty levels vary so you can choose from easy, moderate or difficult; and quarter, half or full days.
After a day of jungle adventures, retreat to your charming and native Amazon-style thatched-roof hut (or cabaña), built on a raised platform and inspired by the Ese'Eja of Peru and Bolivia. There’s no need to sacrifice creature comforts here — contemporary amenities include hot showers, organic toiletries, a ceiling fan and a screened terrace with a hammock. Wake up to the sound of birdsong and fall asleep to the sounds of the jungle.
