Why we like it
About Reserva Amazonica
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
