Tambopata Reserve, Madre de Dios
Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica is an eco-luxury lodge in the adjacent area to the Tambopata National Reserve. The Madre de Dios river meanders right in front of this charming lodge. Reserva Amazonica has an excellent location, just a 45-minute boat ride down the river from Puerto Maldonado.
Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica offers 35 wooden cabins equipped with screened porch and hammocks, ceiling fans, hot baths, eco-friendly organic bath merchandise, and cloth robes. Those cozy cabins are inspired by The Ese’Eja culture, one of Peru’s few extant foraging communities, which have been protectors of the lands in the Amazon basin for several generations.
There are different cabin categories: the Tambopata Suite, Amazonica Suite, Superior Rio, and Superior. The first one is the largest room at Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica. It includes a private covered terrace with a plunge pool, sunbathing chairs, and outdoor showers across four integrated areas!
The lodge has a main dining room, where they offer a welcome refreshing drink while you check in. This space is an open, round, and cozy space with two levels where guests enjoy meals and socialize, play games, read, relax or have a drink at the bar. You can also enjoy some time putting your feet up and relaxing in the hammock in the protected napping area.
Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica’s Spa, Ena is the perfect place for relaxing with the sound of the Madre de Dios river. They offer an excellent treatment with exotic Amazonian ingredients and 100% natural products.
The lodge’s restaurant is inspired by the tropical flavors and fresh ingredients of the Amazon region. They offer an international buffet breakfast, but lunch and dinner are served a la carte. You can also enjoy a full bar service, including a complimentary Pisco Sour at cocktail hour.
