We heard about this lodge from a friend who is involved with the Regua project. We were not disappointed! For visitors who are keen on birds it is a perfect place to stay, there are a lot of walks which you can do from the lodge, or transport can be arranged to travel further afield. There are guides who can... More

We spent 3 nights here, in order to look for birds in the Atlantic rain forest, a very threatened ecosystem. We were fortunate to be given the best room in the lodge, which has a large balcony, enjoying great views. When we arrived the weather was very hot but a thunderstorm that nights heralded cooler weather, so the birds became... More

My family's second visit to this Garden of Eden paradise! We loved it, and saw many amazing birds, caimans, caipibara, bats, frogs and had a face-to-face encounter with a smiling sloth!!! The food is great, guides are knowledgable and friendly. We will be returning.....

We stayed for 4 nights in July 2013 in a balcony room. The lodge is very comfortable with hot water in the bathroom from solar power. The view from the balcony is delightful. A buffet is served at lunch and dinner prepared by local ladies and is very tasty. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We saw many... More

I had heard about the great diversity of the rain forests of Brazil and I finally got to see them in all their resplendent glory. A transforming experience. The hospitality was a perfect match..Highly recommended....

We spent 4 nights here at the beginning of June. It is a truly wonderful place to stay and what Nicholas and Raquel are doing is remarkable. We hired a car in Rio and drove here, which was easy. We had a guided walk in the forest and also a birding walk. We are not expert birders but saw many... More

A most comfortable lodge in a splendid location. The view from the lodge looks over the stunning mountains clothed in forests many planted by the conservation project that operates here. The large pretentious canopy hide does distract from the view but does provide excellent views over the reclaimed wetland. Staff are friendly and the food excellent, all local and fresh.... More

The Guapi Assu Bird Lodge is a great place to stay. Run by Nicholas and Raquel, this couple has done so much to help conserve this stunning area of Atlantic Rainforest. The lodge itself is not too large and is comfortable and welcoming. The views from the lodge across to the forest covered hills are lovely. The food was excellent... More

This is an excellent example of eco-tourism with revenue from guests at the lodge contributing to the running of a fantastic rain forest project. Under the leadership of manager, Nicholas, 160,000 trees have been planted here over the past 10 years restoring former farmland to valuable rain forest and wetland. The wetland is very close to the lodge and there... More

This is a fantastic place and very easy to access from Rio. We stayed for 5 nights in June and could have stayed much longer. Whilst I think many people go in Sep/Oct, June was great for us as it was really quiet- we were the only people there for two nights and it really felt like we had the... More
