Awasi Iguazú is the perfect spot to explore the magnificent Iguazú waterfalls as well as the miles of rainforests that surround them. Few people take the time to venture further than the waterfalls and the forests are almost empty of visitors. Visit these pristine forests before everyone else discovers them!
Awasi Iguazu is Argentina’s latest addition to the Awasi group and part of the Relais & Chateaux collection. Tucked into the rain-forests of a private reserve that surround the Iguazú Falls on the Argentine side, the hotel is perfectly placed to explore, not only the spectacular waterfalls, but also the scenery beyond.
This is one of the few hotels that provides a private vehicle and guide per room as standard. This gives every guest the chance to truly personalise their own experience and explore in a way that suits their own interests. The forests are peppered with ancient Jesuit missions and a stunning variety of wildlife that can be accessed in your private 4×4 vehicle or from the water as you sail silently down the River Iguazú.
The 14 stand-alone suites are perched on stilts in the forest on the banks of the River Iguazú and just 15 minutes from the falls. Each comes with a private veranda and plunge pool from which to take in the sounds of the jungle, which is particularly impressive at dusk. Listen hard and you might catch the distant thunder of the waterfalls. The rooms at Awasi Iguazu are stylishly designed with soft wood furnishings and creamy colours.
The food, as you would expect from a Relais & Chateaux property is delicious and served in a softly lit dining room with leafy views of the jungle all around.
