Well-run and stylishly decorated wildlife lodge, offering a particularly varied range of excursions and an award-winning family programme.
This atmospheric lodge, of simple rustic design but offering contemporary comforts, is a popular choice for visits to the Peruvian Amazon. Two small clay licks near the lodge attract colourful parakeets, making for a memorable visit at dawn. There are loads of exciting rainforest experiences you can take part in and the guides are knowledgeable and skilled.
A highlight is the impressive 30m high observation tower, penetrating the treetop canopy, which offers a bird’s eye view of the surrounding tropical jungle. Drones are released from the top, to take photos as part of aerobotanical scientific research – you can help programme the drone and watch this happen.
You’ll stay in one of 30 modern, en suite guest rooms featuring polished wood, above is a loft space open to the steeply-pitched thatch roofs. The rooms are connected by raised boardwalks; there are no windows, but one wall is open to the forest: you will be able to listen to all the sounds of the jungle's nocturnal life but will be safe and sound under your mosquito net.
A cocktail bar, hand-made hammocks, an artisan boutique and a spa offering Amazonian massages add yet more value to the experience. This agreeable lodge has won an award for its innovative family programme – children will have a wonderful t time here, both adventurous and educational.
What our clients say
“The Posadas Amazonas (Puerto Maldonado) was a good example of an eco-hotel.”AG, Putney
"Absolutely amazing once again! I got upgraded on arrival which was a lovely bonus. I was extremely well-looked by the guides and staff. Food was also delicious."BS,Birmingham
Be prepared for an experience that is not first world but unique and unforgetable. Coping with the creepy crawlies, extremely high humidity and heat was bound to be a challenge but all part of the experience and more than compensated for by the exellent service given by the staff and guides as well as wonderful Rainforest and it's wildlife.JT, Glossop

Amazing for the middle of a jungle! Large rooms with better than expected bathrooms. Great food served in restaurant. Good bar service. Guides well informed and well organised. The concern shown after I suffered a minor injury was amazing and I can't praise the staff enough for their care and attention.JB, Alcester
