Awasi Iguazú, Argentina

This article appears in Volume 23: The Adventure

wondered what it’s like to sleep in the jungle – perhaps in
a tree house on stilts – before hiking among some of the rarest
flora and fauna on the planet? With the latest outpost from luxe
hotel group Awasi, you need wonder no
longer. Having built a reputation for exploration with lodges in
Chilean Patagonia and Atacama, its newest launch is situated in the
depths of the Atlantic rainforest and on the Argentine side of the
arresting Iguazú Falls.

Awasi’s markers stand firm in the resort’s chic villas,
knowledgeable and charming guides and incomparable location just
500m from the Brazilian border, meaning that guests can visit both
sides of the famous falls in a single day. Upon arrival each villa
is allocated a guide to help map out excursions, including private
boat trips to 18th-century Jesuit ruins, visits to local Guaraní
tribes, treks amid thousands of endemic plants and animals, and of
course, the falls themselves. All are built into the nightly cost
of the room alongside food and drink, so you can dial the activity
level up – or down – as you please.


All 14 villas are connected via winding pathways and include
cloud-like beds, outdoor showers and a deck with a plunge pool – so
if the adventure becomes a little too much you have more than
enough reasons to put your feet up.
