Among the lush rainforests in Southern Peru, we experienced a fantastic mix of hospitality and a natural feel. Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica is a rainforest resort offering a unique travel experience. It is no wonder it got its place among the 25 best eco-lodges rated by National Geographic Traveler magazine, as they have established the best eco practices. The secluded resort blends with the tropical environment while providing a deluxe hospitality experience for passionate travelers that love trying new things.
Located in the heart of the Tambopata National Reserve, this rainforest resort overlooks the grand Amazon river. The remote area is an ideal destination for ones willing to enjoy the mix of nature’s colors and sounds, with modern amenities handy. We can describe the resort as luxurious, eco-friendly, and welcoming.
With 35 wooden cabanas scattered around the Reserva Amazonica, this place is an intimate retreat for nature lovers. It is a delightful getaway in the middle of the rainforest, featuring tropical aesthetics and cozy vibes. The area is home to 540 bird species, which inhabit the lush greenery around the complex.
Wandering through the rainforest resort is an experience on its own. The cozy hammocks welcome you without hesitation whenever you wish to stop by and admire the luxuriant greenery. Or, you can stop by the wooden pavilion house, which is the main building. Grab a cup of locally grown tea and enjoy nature’s soothing sounds. The wooden cabanas are very charming, with a thatched palm roof to seamlessly blend into the surroundings. They provide an intimate accommodation experience while offering access to modern conveniences.
The guest rooms are specially designed to bring nature closer, allowing tourists to enjoy the fantastic sight. Hence, they are open to the great outdoors at the front. The interiors feature simplicity, comfort, an abundance of natural textures to get the tropical feel. The mosquito net over the beds brings a romantic touch, despite serving its purpose. The cotton sheets and linen add a cozy feel while being cohesive with the naturalistic vibe of the space. The rooms offer delightful eco-friendly toiletries to keep the environmental impact at a minimum.
The rainforest resort allows guests to experience locally grown food. They serve gourmet delicacies made from local ingredients to get the real experience a step closer to you.
The dining room holds the concept with a fantastic nature-inspired design that adds a sense of warmth. While the space sticks to the same colors, it doesn’t look monotonous at all. The reason for this is the combination of natural textures that predominates through the space. The wooden chairs bring rustic vibes with the unfinished look. The leafy pendants give romantic illumination while getting an organic feel. In addition to the nicely styled dining room, you can find the bar. The cozy seating area in rusty orange provides a comfortable spot for enjoying a drink and chatting with other travelers.
Join the rainforest
In addition to the rainforest resort, you can find a soothing spa center. It is designed to provide the utmost wellness experience for travelers wishing to unwind after a long day of wandering. The spa offers excellent views, so it is the place where you want to be during sunset. It keeps the eco-friendly concept, using products made of natural ingredients.
Since the resort lies in the Tambopata National Reserve, there are many things to do. We couldn’t miss the Inkaterra Canopy Walkway, a unique opportunity to walk high above the jungle. Stroll around the bridge 30 meters above the ground, witnessing the beauty of the Amazon. This is an excellent way to observe the jungle ecosystem and understand the rainforest’s extent.
This Peruvian rainforest resort brought us a step closer to the jungle, allowing us to enjoy the sounds of nature. At the same time, we admired the thoughtfully designed interiors meant to blend with the environment.
