By far and away the most elegant and comfortable lodge in the Amazon. Simple.
Anavilhanas Jungle Lodge is a small and exclusive hotel in the heart of the Amazon taking its name from the Anavilhanas, the world's largest fresh water archipelago. The Lodge is by the black waters of the aptly named Rio Negro and blessed with the sounds, smells and mysteries of the Amazon Jungle, providing the perfect balance between nature and comfort, adventure and peace. Each suites in this charming lodge is styled in a rustic manner incorporating nature and comfort. All modern amenities are provided; en-suite bathrooms, mini bars, air-conditioning and personal hammocks. The hotel's restaurant sits beside the Rio Negro, serving a menu of classic traditional dishes with international cuisine in a laid back but diligent manner. But the best thing about this lodge is the wealth of activities available, chaperoned hiking and diving, swimming with pink river dolphin, birdwatching, jungle walks, exploring the canals, lakes and islands of the archipelago in a dug-out canoe, visiting the local communities, alligator spotting and piranha fishing.
Why we love it
Despite its location in a vast stretch of untouched rainforest, Anavilhanas Jungle Lodge is mosquito free.
