Jungle lodge

The Calanoa Jungle Lodge, awarded as one of the 20 best hotels in the world by Condé Nast Traveller, offers a unique space for the traveler who is in search of a vital experience, who is in a journey of discovery. Our activities and workshops propose an experience of the rainforest through the senses and a creative dialogue with its inhabitants.

The Calanoa Natural Reserve, 50-hectares of jungle, is at the very heart of the Amazon forest, yet easy to access, and its surroundings are an endless source of marvel. It is a low-impact, small-scale settlement.

The architecture has been conceived for the visitor to deeply experience the jungle and the river. Elements such as ethereal walls and light spaces allow  travelers to connect with the jungle through all their senses.

The social area offers an ample space for encounters, meditation and Yoga. It has hammock-swings and seats for guests to relax. A wooden deck connects it with the kitchen, a large space open for guests to visit and participate in the preparation of food.

Calanoa's famous cuisine is a fusion of local Amazonian traditions with Brazilian, Colombian and Peruvian cuisine fussed together by the owners’ creativity. Organic and fresh local produce, firewood cooking, and our famous freshly baked bread contribute to a delightful experience.

The buildings have been designed by artist Diego Samper combining traditional techniques with a contemporary approach and a sustainable architecture that uses local materials and resources. The woven palm roofs are beautiful and fresh, walls are minimal to improve air circulation, and the structures are built on stilts to elevate them from the ground, allowing for better views and increasing air circulation.

Our comfortable visitors’ cabins, with views of the river and the forest, are fully covered with mosquito screen and each bed has its own mosquito net for extra protection. A board path connects the cabins with the dining and social pavilions. Calanoa has observation platforms throughout ideal for watching birds and monkeys.
