Why we like it
- The Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica Lodge is located in a private ecological reserve and research centre of 10,000 hectares
- The ENA Spa combines classic treatments with exotic ingredients
- Other facilities include casual conversation areas, a bar, a gift shop, an upstairs loft and balconies for bird watching and stargazing
- Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica is a family-oriented lodge, and offers a wide range of facilities and activities for children
- We recommend the Tambopata Suites for their private terraces, plunge pools, outdoor rain showers and personal airport escorts.
The Canopy Walk opens up an avenue of sight you'll be hard pressed to find anywhere else, up among the trees and engulfed in the canopy you can begin to understand the habitats of animals you could only glimpse on the jungle's floor like the Amazonian Parrot.
Everyone we met was most kind and capable, this made for a great holiday which consistently exceeded our expectations. We thank you and your team in Peru very much for such a wonderful holiday!

Inspired by native Amazon design, Reserva Amazonica offers 30 thatched roof cabañas - all combining natural materials with contemporary amenities and built in the native Machiguenga and Ese-Eja style.
Four cabaña options are available - each individually decorated in an elegant, rustic style to create the most luxurious lodges in the Amazon. The Reserva is the place to go for an authentic, safe and comfortable stay in the biodiversity capital of Peru, where a single giant tree is home to more insect species than in the whole of the UK
