Welcome to Awasi Iguazú, a haven of tranquillity situated on the banks of the River Iguazú, just 20 minutes away from the world’s largest waterfalls. Surrounded by the magnificent Atlantic Rainforest, our new 14-room lodge offers a unique experience where each villa is assigned with a private guide and 4WD, granting guests the freedom to explore the stunning landscapes at their own pace and on their own terms.
After days of immersing yourself in the natural wonders of the Iguazú Falls and its surroundings, return to Awasi for a refreshing swim in your private plunge pool, savour drinks at the bar in the main lodge, and indulge in long evening meals at our restaurant.
Built on stilts for minimal environmental impact, the 14 private villas are strategically spread throughout the lush jungle, ensuring utmost privacy while remaining easily accessible from the main lodge. Awasi Iguazú offers the perfect balance of seclusion in your villa and the opportunity to socialise at the bar and restaurant, allowing you to enjoy the best of the Misiones Province.
The rich history of the region unfolds as you explore the falls, with Spanish conquistador Álvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca being the first known European to witness their magnificence in 1541. The name of Argentina’s Misiones Province itself pays homage to the Jesuit Missionaries who protected the Guarani people and their villages in the 1600s, as depicted in the film “The Mission” starring Robert De Niro.
At Awasi, your holiday is tailored to your preferences, with personalised support from your private guide and vehicle. We are proud to be Carbon Neutral and actively protect 340 hectares of native woodland in Iguazú and Patagonia, offsetting more CO2 than our lodge and guest travel emissions combined.
Each villa, adorned with traditional textiles and baskets woven by the indigenous Guarani people, features a private terrace, plunge pool, and spacious living areas. The Master Villa boasts two bedrooms, a larger plunge pool, and a living room, accommodating families or couples seeking ample space.
Spanning 100 square meters, each villa offers a refuge in the jungle, perched above the forest floor. Immerse yourself in the beauty of the Atlantic Rainforest, home to over 400 species of birds, endemic orchids and ferns, tapirs, Capuchin monkeys, and pumas. Embark on guided excursions that delve into the diverse flora, fauna, and history of the Misiones Province, including jungle trails, crystal-clear pools reachable by boat, archaeological Jesuit ruins, and encounters with the local Guarani tribes.
Escape the hustle and bustle of daily life and embrace a world where you can relax and enjoy life at your own pace. Awasi Iguazú invites you to witness the theatre of Mother Nature’s grandeur, providing a front-row seat to the wonders of the Atlantic Rainforest and the awe-inspiring Iguazú Falls.
Awasi Iguazú offers all-inclusive stays to fully immerse yourself in this experience of a lifetime.
