Awasi Iguazu in Misiónes, Argentina, is located just 15 minutes from the world's largest waterfall, the spectacular Iguazú Falls. This luxurious 12-villa jungle lodge is perched on the banks of the Iguazu River under the canopy of the surrounding jungle.
Each private villa in Awasi Iguazu is built on stilts to reduce the impact on the environment. These luxurious retreats have their own plunge pool, outdoor shower, and spacious living area where you can relax and listen to the peaceful bird song floating through the lush vegetation. There is also one master villa with a larger plunge pool and living room, allowing more space for two couples or families. The villas utilize local woods and materials and are sprinkled through the jungle to maximize privacy and relaxation.
A drink at the bar in the main lodge and evening meals in the restaurant provide ample opportunity to mingle with the other guests.
Millions visit the tumbling Iguazu Falls a year, but once the park is closed, Awasi Iguazu provides exclusive access to the Argentinean side of the falls. Each villa is assigned a private guide to show you to the surrounding archaeological sites and learn about the cultures of the area. Awasi Iguazú biologists take you on private treks and vehicle rides to see the beautiful flora and fauna of the jungle. Bird watching is a popular pastime in this area where hundreds of birds like toucans and parrots inhabit the canopy of trees. Boat rides along the river with a sunset picnic offer a closer look of the natural wonders of the area around this luxury boutique hotel.
The legend of the falls is that a deity’s love for a beautiful maiden was not reciprocated so the god decided to chop up the River Iguazu, creating multiple waterfalls and condemning the lovers to an eternal fall. Today you can appreciate the falls roaring power and then retreat back to the tranquility of the Awasi Iguazú.Request Information
