  • rooms

    A treetop retreat, the 14 private Villas built on stilts for minimal environmental impact are spread throughout the jungle, each positioned for utmost privacy but within easy distance of the Main Lodge. The stylish interiors are inspired by local Guarani crafts, including baskets and traditional textiles.

    The 13 air-conditioned Standard Villas can be made up with 1 king or 2 twin beds and feature an en-suite bathroom with bath and separate shower, relaxing terrace and plunge pool. An extra bed can be provided for children sharing with their parents. 

    The vast Master Villa offers 2  bedrooms; one configured with a king-size bed and complemented by an en-suite bathroom with bath and shower, the other also en-suite (shower only) made up with 1 king or 2 twin beds. The separate sitting area, terrace and plunge pool all ensure plenty of space for everyone.


  • facilities & activities

    Awasi Iguazú is the perfect spot to enjoy the world famous National Park and its surroundings, while also enjoying especially crafted excursions that go beyond the falls.

    A stay here gives you that much appreciated 'head start' in accessing the Falls themselves; whilst there's no early entry - yet (something the lodge are working towards!), guests are able to enter much closer to the action and hence enjoy around 30 minutes of quiet time before the day visitors arrive. From Awasi's entry point you can access both the lower and the upper circuits and guests can head to the Garganta del Diablo from there if they are feeling energetic and up for a 3km walk/jog, although there's also the option of waiting for the little train should that not appeal.

    The Falls aside, the lodge also enjoys a sublime location in the Atlantic Rainforest; unconnected to any other rainforest, it is home to thousands of endemic plants and animals. Awasi have worked with renowned biologists to create a series of excursions that go beyond the falls; from landscape to history, flora and fauna, the Misiones Province is a melting pot of contrasts and diversity. With a little luck you should see tapirs, capuchin monkeys and, if you are especially lucky, there is also puma . There are a plethora of jungle trails, crystal clear pools, only reachable by boat and archaeological Jesuit ruins. The local Guarani tribes practice ancient artisan crafts and know more about the rainforest than anyone else

    After days spent exploring the impressive natural scenery in and around the Iguazú Falls, return to Awasi for a swim in your own private plunge pool, a drink at the bar in the main lodge and long evening meals in the welcoming restaurant.

    Awasi follows the safari model when it comes to meals, drinks, and outdoor activities: everything is included; guests stay on an all-inclusive with private transfers to and from Puerto Iguazu Airport, all meals, beverages (including premium wine and spirits), private guided excursions and personal 4WD vehicle. Although there is no pool or spa, each villa has a plunge pool and in-room massages can be arranged. There is also complimentary Wi-Fi.

  • dining

    Jungle and gourmet combine successfully at Awasi - expect fresh, seasonal food, sourced locally where possible and served up with real flair. You're in for a real treat! DId we mention the fabulous pre-dinner cocktails?

  • family

    Children over the age of 10 are welcome; the private guide and 4WD vehicle provided make Awasi a great option for families as you can go at your own pace. Children aged 10 - 18 years of age, pay 50% of the regular rate.

  • location

    Awasi Iguazu is a 20 minute drive from the International Airport of Puerto Iguazu (IGR – also known as Cataratas de Iguazu). It's also easy to travel to Awasi from the Brazilian side: it takes less than an hour (or if customs passage at the border runs smoothly as little as 35 minutes) to travel by vehicle from Foz do Iguacu International Airport (IGU). All transfers are carried out by your private guide and are included in the all-inclusive rates.
