Awasi Iguazú is a first class superior lodge offering exclusive, personalised guided adventures from luxury accommodation.
Close to the world’s most impressive waterfalls, Iguazú Falls, this new, luxurious Relais & Chateaux-listed lodge is operated by Awasi, a well-respected company with properties in wilderness locations in Atacama and Patagonia. Set on the densely forested banks of the river Iguazú, each of the 14 huge, beautifully crafted villas is assigned with a private guide and 4WD vehicle, allowing you to explore at your own pace, visiting the highlights of your choice, when you want to go, and staying for as long as you like.
Built on stilts to minimise environmental impact, the large wood-constructed villas are scattered over the property, each embraced by jungle foliage offering privacy but just an easy stroll from the main lodge.
Each villa has a private plunge pool, outdoor shower and spacious living area. The master villa has an enormous living room which allows plenty of space for two couples or families.
While the lodge ensures exclusivity and privacy, you have the opportunity to socialise with other guests at the bar and restaurant in the main lodge.
What our clients say
Hotel Club Tapiz and visiting the wineries in Mendoza was a real highlight. The Iguazu falls were also incredible.CAA, London
The trip was divided into a series of mini holidays and each was memorable in its own way. Obviously the Iguazu Falls were spectacular but we derived much pleasure from every experience we had.MK, Southampton
Not easy to pick out a highlight. It was a very varied trip as we had requested. The natural scenery around Salta, Iguazu, the Lakes and all over Patagonia was amazing, helped by some very favourable weather. The top hotels - Patagonia Camp, Patios de Cafayate, Arakur were great; some of the lesser hotels surpassed their descriptions - Molinos, la Yegua Loca, Anslemo;...The Andean Crossing was fabulous: fantastic scenery which we saw in perfect conditions, with very easy transfers and helpful guides.CB, Winchester
Overall, a fantastic trip. Will recommend Argentina and Journey Latin America to any friends looking to travel to this area. Thank you very much for helping us to create such a smooth running and enjoyable trip for us!KB, Chelmsford
Most memorable experience: "First - the Andean crossing from Puerta Varas to Bariloche. Perfect weather, scenery and organisation. Second - Patagonia Camp and the mini-treks we did around the Park. Beautiful Third - Salta and the Cachi/Cafayate trip. Interesting, historic and magnificent."RW, Cobham
Perito Merino and Iguazú Falls were undoubtedly the high points - unforgettable experiences.TW, Prenton
