Stay at the Anavilhanas Jungle Lodge
An authentic adventure into the heart of the Amazon awaits you, from this bijou and highly exclusive estate. The boutique lodge unwraps like a camouflaged den of pleasures, with rustic stays that pay tribute to the planet’s most vibrant wilderness.Leave at dawn to catch a sunrise from the islands, as birds fly against a pastel-shaded sky. The rest of the morning is leisurely with dips in the pool, overlooking the beauty of the Anavilhanas Archipelago. Soon, it’s time to re-enter the watery channels, for pink dolphin sightings and piranha hunts from wooden canoes. Swap jungle thrills for fresh caipirinhas at the floating bar later, before sitting down to tantalising pirarucu ceviche with your beloved.
The journey begins with a 4-hour flight from Rio to Manaus, after which it is still a 2.5-hour drive. Alternatively, you can take a seaplane straight from Manaus. This scenic transfer experience takes just 35 minutes, and grants epic views over the Amazon jungle.
Within the lodge, you’ll find 16 standard Cottages, alongside four superior Bungalows and two Panoramics. All rooms are cosy and spacious with hot water, private balconies and alluring hammocks, but it’s the Panoramic stays that are most coveted.
Who is it for
This is a natural paradise for couples and honeymooners, offering a truly treasured trip amid Brazilian nature. Families too can be accommodated. If you are travelling with young children, then the Panoramic room is best with its two extra beds.
