Reserva Amazonica – Peru

The Amazon Rainforest is a moist broadleaf forest that covers most of the Amazon Basin of South America. The rain forest has been in existence for at least 55 million years and offers unparalleled biodiversity.

Located on the banks of the Madre de Dios River, Reserva Amazonica is nestled in the heart of a private ecological reserve, deep in the lush Amazon Rainforest. Here, a wealth of wildlife and utter tranquillity await guests.

Inspired by native Amazon design, the lodge offers 35 jungle camp’s thatched cabañas. Rustic yet elegant, the spacious cabañas combine natural materials such as wood, fishtail palm and cotton with contemporary amenities. The four beautiful Tambopata Suites feature private plunge pool and terrace, plus a hidden outdoor shower where the mystique of the jungle can be embraced in elegant seclusion.

For the ultimate rainforest retreat, Inkaterra’s Canopy Tree House offers utter isolation amidst the majesty of the Peruvian Amazon. Built on a private platform, almost 30 meters off the forest floor, the Canopy Tree House is accessible via a series of hanging bridges. Service is second to none and it comes with its own Canopy butler, contactable by walkie-talkie. Later on guests can soak up the atmosphere over an intimate dinner watching the stars above before taking a canopy night walk around this remote and fascinating tree top world.

With oversized windows that frame vistas of green, the two-story Amazon Pavilion is the heart of the property. The spacious dining room serves breakfast and dinner, with menus designed around inventive use of local, fresh ingredients. Guests can gather for cocktails at the first-floor bar or relax on the comfortable sofas in the upstairs lounge. From the remarkable vantage point high in the canopy, guests can observe a range of wild animal species that are not usually visible from the ground, and listen to the amazing jungle sounds.

Seven hanging bridges, six treetop observation platforms, and two tall towers offer visitors glimpses of rare and unusual flora and fauna. Imagine walking high above the rainforest, seeing the jungle ecosystem in the same way that the birds that fly above see it.
