Mirante do Gaviao Lodge is a beautiful property situated in the heart of the Amazon rainforest, one of the most magical habitats in the world.
A short 2.5 hour journey from Manaus will take guests to the lodge, which is located along the banks of the Rio Negro. As the newest lodge in the Brazilian Amazon, it has been built with the surrounding habitat in mind and with strict sustainability regulations, and offers beautiful views of the Anavilhanas Archipelago.
There are 7 suites and bungalows which are separated into 3 categories, all featuring air conditioning, a large terrace, mini bar and king size bed. For those wishing to upgrade, the top suites also have a hot tub on the balcony.
Patricia O’Reilly, a Spanish architect who has a distinctly contemporary style, designed the building which has arches of coloured wood. This design blends with the surrounding forest and creates a truly boutique option for staying in the Amazon rainforest.
Mirante do Gaviao Lodge has a fantastic on site restaurant and menu specially prepared by chef Deborah Shornik. It boasts a selection of dishes featuring local ingredient, plus international favourites. Aside from excellent cuisine, the lodge also has a selection of full-board packages which allow guests the chance to get to know this stunning region. Activities include canoeing, jungle trekking, piranha fishing, pink river dolphin spotting, boat based safaris and bird watching. Professional guides who speak English, German and French will enhance the experience with their knowledge of the wildlife that lives nearby.
