Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica in Puerto Maldonado, Peru
Imagine the pristine rainforest, vibrantly verdant and enchantingly majestic, practically untouched and unchanged from its natural state, and you will picture the splendor of Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica. Along the Madre de Dios River, in southern Peru's Tambopata Nature Reserve, this fabulous tropical escape welcomes you to cast off from the world and truly experience the rainforest and its secrets. 35 thatched roof cabanas are open and inviting, crafted from rich natural woods, as cool breeze flows freely throughout. Relax in complete serenity as you stretch out on your screened porch, resting in the delightful comforts of your own tropical hammock. In the evening enjoy deeply comfortable beds as lantern light magically plays throughout your room. At Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica, truly immerse yourself in the enchanting simplicity of rainforest life, discover the beauty of Peru, and find inner peace.
As the sun warms the jungle canopy, make your way to the main building for a delicious breakfast in the dining room. Venture out ready to explore, and hike through the rainforest wetlands along the Anaconda Walk. Continue on to the botanical gardens of Hacienda Concepcion, delight in a jungle canopy tour as you walk 103 feet above the forest floor, then stroll through the enchanting and magical Inkaterra Butterfly House. In the afternoon relax as you canoe across the placid waters of Lake Sandoval, then enjoy some fishing on Lake Valencia before returning to the resort for a deeply refreshing massage at ENA Spa, right on the shores of the river. As the sun begins to set over the Amazon take part in an evening boat excursion down the Madre de Dios River, and watch as the rainforest magically transforms from day to night. After an amazing day exploring all that the nature reserve has to offer, sit down in the dining room for an amazingly fresh, local dinner paired with the perfect cocktail. Retire to your cabana that night, lanterns shining through the forest, and fall asleep to the gentle sounds of Tambopata, Peru and Inktaterra Reserva Amazonica.

Reviews for Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica
Coming to Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica I had, to be honest, an image of some SPA resort, but what I have received in the reality has been much-much more greater experience. First of all staff is awesome, they help you with each request, very friendly, speak fluent English. Excursions were well planned and we enjoyed diving into the jungles and observing it sort of from the side. Amazing feeling to be honest! Also I enjoyed a lot night "hunting" from the boat (its when you on the boat with the guides look for night animals). In this way we could see a lot of alligators, some monkeys and birds. Second, I would like to mention food as far as they grow most of the things by their own on the farm that you can also visit during one of the tours. Must to try their chocolate pie! It is amazingly wonderful! I have never tried anything like that before! Also, worthy to mention that you leave in bungalo. It is opened, so you keep being into the jungles and observe animals running around, like aguti. It is important to keep in mind that you do not have any connection! At all! No mobile phones, no internet, nothing! And I mean it! But for me it became an opportunity to read some books that I could not start for a while, to clean my brain from thoughts and to get inspired with new ideas. So I would say I have got sort of like "spiritual retreat" . It is a place where you have to remember that its not jungles invade your space, but its you invaded jungles and you have to respect that. If you are too spoiled person who got used to high luxury resorts, where you come with your Gucci bag and expect to be a star then my advise, just do not go there! It is not the right place for you! For all the rest I would suggest it as a must in your list.

We were 6 family members (3 couples) visiting Peru. We planned to visit as many of the interesting places. Our idea was to start from the lower elevation and to slowly reach the highest elevation to keep altitude sickness under check. So flew to Puerto Maldonado via Cusco. We were picked up at the airport and taken to the Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica by boat. We booked the cottages facing the river. Every day there were activities that were included in the package. There were extra activities offered like the visit to the clay lick to watch the birds. If one is hoping to see Anaconda, Jaguar, or any other Amazonian animals you will be disappointed. We saw many birds, camens and Monkeys. We did not spot one bird while we were on the canopy walk. But the whole experience of walking in the jungle and staying the cabanas was well worth it. The food offered was excellent the waiters were fantastic. Our guide Charles was very knowledgeable and passionate about preserving the flora and fauna of the region. He went out of the way to show us as much as he could. When we spoke to those who went with another guide made us realize that we saw more. The boat ride at night and the canoe rides were moments of zen. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The owners are striving for the preservation of the rain forest. From here we went to the Sacred Velley, Then Machu Picchu, Cusco and last to Lake Titikaka.
Wow! We started our 12-day visit to Peru at this resort. It proved to be the best possible way to unplug and decompress! I totally forgot about work and all other worries as the experience was so amazing. The accommodations were great for my family! The experiences in the dining room were great - food and service. Yomi was our tour guide for our excursions. He is simply the best. Informative, patient, friendly, great sense of humor. We cannot say enough great things about him. We saw incredible wildlife - from ants to Tarantulas to monkeys to macaws to black caimans. We were there over the holidays. On Christmas morn, Resort management had a gift for EVERY guest staying in the resort. We stayed at three Inkaterra properties during the course of a week and were spoiled by their accommodations, service and Food & Beverage. Thanks for such fond memories!

We loved our stay at Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica! Right from the start when we were picked up from the airport, driven to the boat ramp on the banks of the mighty Rio Madre De Dios, helped on board one of the Lodge's river boats and driven to the base of the wide welcoming steps up to the Lodge itself. Wow! The setting is so beautiful. The Lodge itself is spacious,cool and comfortable, the staff delightfully friendly and professional too. Our guide, Karlos was superb. We did at least two activities each day and sometimes a third in the evening. We were happy to get an excellent sleep each night in our comfortable, airy cabana. Our big bed with its pristine white linen was fully enclosed at night with mosquito nets to keep the jungle bugs at bay. We enjoyed the hammock and easy chair in our leisure time. The shower was superb. Meals were delicious, wine and beer all top notch. The shop provided items we needed such as an extra white cotton long sleeved shirt - a necessity to ward off bugs in the day time. Rain washes off insect repellent. This was a wonderful, once in a lifetime experience, well worth every dollar spent. We shall treasure the memories, all of them good.

The setting is beautiful! The cabins are very nicely screened in and surprisingly bug-free. Our's was right by the river with a beautiful view and seclusion. We had scheduled a private guide for all our excursions, and she was quite nice and pleasant. Beyond that, our stay was very unimpressive and lacking. Service was mediocre and we experienced some quite bizarre moments. For example, during dinner one evening, I mentioned that I had received the wrong dessert. The waiter informed us that they were out of what I had ordered. But things got weird when he noticed that I might not necessarily like the replacement, and asked what else was available. He took away the replacement dessert. We assumed he was going to bring the menu back, but turns out I had lost my chance at dessert. No dessert for you! Another example: transportation to the airport was included in our stay. And we had paid an extra night's stay so that we wouldn't have to vacate our room at check-out time since we had an early evening flight. They attempted to bundle us with other guest leaving many hours earlier than our flight. We mentioned that we had paid an extra night so we wouldn't hang out the one-room airport for hours. The lodge threw a hissy-fit at having to honor the transportation in a reasonable time. Finally, they forced us to board an excursion boat, wasting our time as they loaded up 30 people and made a midway stop unloading these folks. When we got to town, we had to wait 20-30 minutes in the rain for our transportation to the airport as the hotel gal stood there rolling her eyes at us CONSTANTLY. We are surprised she didn't hurt her eyeballs. You definitely will NOT get what you pay for.
