Villa Amazonia is a contemporary mid-range hotel with colonial features and a good range of facilities in the centre of Manaus in the Brazilian Amazon.
Just a stone's throw from Manaus' downtown Opera House is Villa Amazonia, a converted colonial home and something of a haven in the city. Its grandiose entrance, complete with an ornate, lemon-tinted façade leads into a reception area combining exposed original stone walls and a wood-panelled ceiling. This, along with the friendly service and collection of decorative antiques, cultivates a warm, homely atmosphere throughout. Other standout features include an outdoor swimming pool and private garden, over which most rooms have a view.
Guest rooms continue the blend of modern and traditional, with marbled bathrooms and 'rain-showers' complementing the classic style of the furnishings. The in-house restaurant offers a tropical take on many familiar classics.

Our expert's view
Hannah Waterhouse - Travel Expert
Hannah had an early introduction to Latin America when her family moved to Ecuador and she returned to study in Buenos Aires for a year before backpacking across the continent.
Located in the centre of the city, the hotel succeeds in blending an historical façade with contemporary furnishings. It’s a great base for exploring Manaus and the hotel pool offers a welcome retreat from the heat of the city – you can relax here and order a caipirinha before enjoying the local cuisine in the hotel restaurant.
