Fodor's Expert Review Anavilhanas Jungle Lodge

Around 180 km (112 miles) northwest of Manaus, Rodovia Am 352, Km 1, Igarapé do Monteiro, Novo Airão, Manaus, Amazonas, 69730-000, Brazil Fodor's Choice

Tucked away among the islands of the Ananvilhanas Archipelago on the Rio Negro, this luxury resort is unparalleled in its sophistication, combining beautiful cabins with superior guiding and expectional food. Guests are greeted upon arrival with a fresh fruit juice in the elegant, thatched-roofed living area. The cocktail bar, comfortable sofas, and pool table make this area a hub for mingling. All rooms are elegantly furnished with comfortable beds, air-conditioning, mini-refrigerators stocked with drinks, and porches strung with hammocks. The fantastic buffet offers regional delicacies as well as fresh fish and tasty salads. Guests are given personalized itineraries upon arrival, all of which are undertaken in speedboats that jet off from the hotel's charming pier and are led by expert bilingual guides. Classic experiences include visiting pink dolphins and hiking through the forest to visiting local villages. Exploring the surrounding igarapés ( tributary rivers) is a highlight. Feel like playing hooky? Sit back by the lovely infinity pool, surrounded by trees and with views over the Rio Negro. There is a minimum stay of two nights. Prices for a two-night/three-day all-inclusive stay (excluding alcohol) start at R$2,100 per person.
