Amazon - Anavilhanas Jungle Lodge
Anavilhanas Jungle Lodge is a small charm hotel that brings together nature and comfort in a subtle and harmonious fashion. In the Lodge, you will not find grandiose buildings, vast fields, fiberglass replicas of animals or plastic flowers on the tables. The allure starts here, for we are in the Amazon and we celebrate the natural beauty of this region, tastefully matching nature and local culture.
The team is ready to receive guests with the utmost care, safety and attention. Besides the welcome cocktail, when you arrive you will be greeted with a seedling of a native tree, which can be planted around the hotel area. They offer drinks and refreshments made out of regional fruit, and there is always a good wine at your disposal. Whenever that out-of-time hunger strikes, you can find excellent sandwiches at our bar. All of this in the heart of the world’s largest forest, right across from the world’s largest river archipelago, and surrounded by unforgettable activities in and around the Amazon Forest rivers.
Location: Anavilhanas Jungle Lodge is located 110 km northwest of Manaus, in the county of Novo Airão, on the right margin of Rio Negro (Black River). We are right across from the world’s largest river archipelago, bathed by the Rio Negro waters and cut by Pato and Monteiro riverbanks. In the region considered as the fountainhead of the Amazon basin, Anavilhanas Jungle Lodge is the perfect place to rest and relax.
The hotel can be reached by land or by water, and all transport is based on the city of Novo Airão. From Manaus, after crossing the majestic Rio Negro in one of the regular ferry boats, you will take a comfortable van across a road that stretches 180km into the woods and leads to the small town of Novo Airão. The hotel is about 15 minutes from the town sailing down the Rio Negro, and the access is not affected by the yearly droughts in the region. Transport takes an average of 3:15hs and is coordinated by the hotel.
Accommodations: There are 16 suites in our Lodge, all of them equipped with split air conditioning, box beds, hot and cold water, fridge and an inviting porch. The architecture is in line with the regional tradition: lots of hay and suspended wooden structures, holding cozy rooms where our guests will find peace and quiet for an invigorating night’s sleep. Throughout the hotel, the homespun atmosphere comes from modern forms and contours which enhance the grace of natural materials and their functions in the structure. It is wonderful to notice how nature is generous when treated with care and skill.
Restaurants and Bars: The restaurant is hidden amidst the trees, but through them it is possible to behold the dark water river, so dark that it has been called Rio Negro (Black River). In the menu, you will find a blend of classic traditional dishes with international cuisine, prepared and served with diligence for an impeccable presentation.
Leisure and Services: The deck and pool overlook the river and are nested among the trees that provide shade, peacefulness and a perfect spot for contemplation. In the Reception and Bar you will find a rich library, comfortable chairs and gaming tables which invite the guests to relax and take their time in good company. There is also a small floating deck which allows our guests to take a river dive, or to simply contemplate the quietness of the dark waters.
