This exclusive jungle escape sits in the heart of the Brazilian Amazon amid the more than 400 emerald green islands that make up the Anavilhanas National Park. During your stay, your home will be one of the cabins and bungalows dotted through the dense vegetation. Built from wood and glass with thatched local palm roofs, these jungle hideaways are in perfect harmony with their surroundings. All come with air conditioning to keep the tropical heat at bay, big soft beds and hot showers where you can freshen up after a day exploring the wilderness. You can choose from one of 16 cosy cottages, nestled in the trees with private balconies hung with hammocks, or opt for more space in a larger bungalow. The biggest 20 m2 Panoramic Bungalows have huge glass walls delivering round-the-clock views of the jungle and its inhabitants, as well as expansive luxury bathrooms with deep, freestanding tubs.
While you may be tempted to spend your days relaxing in your room, a trip to Anavilhanas has much more to offer. The lodge's experienced staff will create an itinerary of experiences and excursions that will reveal the secrets of this extraordinary part of the world. You could travel upriver for a walk through the otherworldly rock formations of the Madada Caves, tour the twisting waterways of the Anavilhanas archipelago in search of rare pink river dolphins or fish for snapping piranha. At dusk, take a twilight trip into the forest to spot some of its nocturnal inhabitants, while visiting a local Cabaclo community provides the chance to explore Amazonian culture. Once the day's adventures are done, recharge with a drink by the tree-shaded pool and watch the sun go down over the jungle.
