“Perfect Honeymoon Spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

I came here as part of my honeymoon and it really is luxury in the rain forest. We didn't see too many animals but the lodge, the food and the people were all amazing. I would highly recommend.

I would particularly recommend the on site spa and the lodge with the private plunge pool!

Room Tip: Choose the lodge with the plunge pool, its worth every penny!

My hushand & I stay there for 4 days 3 nights. Mr. Andres and Ms. Sophia very nice and helpfull. They do care about their members. As per another review, food are very good, and very decent. Drink is chargeable, but price is very reasonable. All their activities arrangement are very good, no complain. Their lodge are keeping very well, and no worry about the hygienic. Highly recommended to people who first time to visit Amazon. If you have the experience there, you can choose their another Inkaterra Hacienda Concepcion coz the place is more wild....if you want to get more challenge, should go there....for first time, better stay at Reserva Amazonica.

Room Tip: take the plunge pool room, its worth it.

Excellent staff and service throughout our stay eg luggage delayed by Air France but staff, especially Tony , really helpful in tracking it and getting it to the lodge from Lima. Food was good quality, drinks a little pricey but typical of other hotels we stayed at in Peru.
We saw caimans, tarantulas, a distant sloth, plenty of birds but sadly not the elusive otters. Sonia was our knowledgable guide and really attentive. Excursions are exactly as described, not strenuous, most challenging was getting in and out of the boats due to lower water level! Definitely do the Lake Sandoval trip. Canopy walk a bit bouncier than expected! Be prepared to to go on the night boat ride before dinner on the day you arrive, we met at 6pm to discuss excursions and hadn't expected to be going straight out from the talk.
"Cabins" were quite luxurious but would benefit from a few drawers. We had 31 and 32. and although furthest from the river we thought they were fine.

Most of the review describe the setting and experience accurately. This place/tour was a two night post trip offering as part of our VBT Sacred Valley/Machu Picchu hiking adventure. (See my other reviews of the sites.) I don't know, but after seeing Machu Picchu everything is a bit anti-climatic. Living on the coast, I believe jungle is a euphemism for swamp with different flora, birds, and animals...As other travelers noted, you take a bus to the landing and then a 45 minute boat ride to the lodge which is quite exotic and in your mind it gives you the jungle feel. The lodge itself is a combination of echo-tourism and a top rated spa resort. The accommodations were clean and well designed equipped with comfortable hammocks/chairs to enjoy the sounds of nature. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms spacious. The power is on periodically, from about 5:30 AM to 2 PM. Then again from 6:00 to 11:00 PM. I found that even when the power was off there was still ample hot water to shower and other travelers in our group agreed as well. As others have noted, though the setting is secluded, you don't have a sense of privacy as the rooms themselves open to the outside and you can hear your neighbors or people walking by easily. It reminded me of "clamping." Nonetheless, the rooms are great!

The food was good and given the power constraints, I was impressed with the skill the kitchen could produce great tasting meals. The service was attentive and friendly.

The tours that are offered are disappointing as there is not a lot of wildlife and the jungle is just not that exotic. The treetop walk was okay, though there was not much to see. The Lake Sandoval trip again was okay. I could pretty much see the same stuff that I see in VA with the exception of the occasional toucan or macaw. If I had to do it over again, I think I would have liked to have tried the all day fishing trip.

Though disappointed with the overall jungle experience, this is a very nice property with good food and service. If you want to try something a little different, this could be perfect for you, especially if you have a young family.

Dear guest,

Thank you for writing about your stay at our property. We appreciate your kind comments.

It is important to keep in mind when visiting the rainforest, that it is an open system where many species co-exist. The Amazon has abundant wildlife, but many of the animals like to hide in the dense vegetation. Part of the experience is to go with the explorer spirit awake.

Thank you for staying at Inkaterra Reserva Amazónica!

After arriving at the airport, we joined about 20 other people for a bus ride through town to the dock. At the dock on the river, our luggage was moved to a Thai-esque shallow bottom boat for a 45 minute ride down the river to the resort. After leaving the boat, we were taken to a small lodging and checked in. We ordered a suite and were not disappointed- see pictures below.
Staff and service were excellent. Meals are included in the price, and the food was good. After check-in, we organized in groups and chose our excursions.
The first excursion was a night tour on the river, where the main thing seen were the caimans, of which quite a few were seen- the guides did a nice job locating them. Photos below.
The next day we spent the day at Lake Sandoval. You take a short boat trip, then hike a trail through the jungle about 30 min, then grab a small boat on the lake and skirt the periphery. Make sure and bring DEET and sunscreen for this excursion- you can wear either short or long sleeves if you take this precaution. Also bring a wide-brimmed hat as the sun beats down severely here. We saw squirrel monkeys, leafcutter ants, tropical flowers, and birds on the hike. At the lake, the main things that we saw were the many birds, including macaws, caimans, and turtles- it was interesting to see the many butterflies taking salt from the turtles' eyes.
After returning that afternoon, we did the Canopy Tour. It was pretty cool walking through the jungle at that height- the main things we saw there were the toucans and a sloth.
That night after dinner, we took a hike on the resort property to see the insects and frogs. The highlights were the large tarantulas and a giant tree spider.
Of interest, there are several large rodents that live on the property and they hang out by a nutcracking station for feeding. There is also a piranha fishing excursion available if you have time- it is an all day affair, and unfortunately we did not stay long enough to book it.

We highly recommend this resort for its accommodations, service, and food. It has a nice mix of luxury and eco-responsibility. Don't expect the Peninsula- it doesn't exist in the Amazon Basin- but this is a very nice experience in the Amazon!

Room Tip: Ask for a suite if you want a private hot tub

My husband and I stayed at the lodge around the third week of May 2013. We had no idea what to expect but were most pleasantly surprised at every turn. We found the cabanas very comfortable and our had a lovely treed view of the river. The staff took care of all the little details one might expect of a 5 star resort - not what one might expect in the jungle. The food was truly wonderful with gracious and engaging staff. Our excursions held fantastic surprises - a sloth which we are still amazed that our guides could spot more than 100 feet up in the air hanging about in a tree. We saw wonderful wildlife of all kinds and even got to see a piranha a local fisherman had caught. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable and we left feeling we had had not only an amazing vacation but an exceptional learning experience.
We would highly recommend Inkaterra - not sure it can get better than the accomodations, the food, the excursions and one can never forget - the food. To top it all off, we met really great people from other countries - Wales, USA, England and on. You start out on your own but in the end you become part of something much larger and better.
Thank you Inkaterra!

Room Tip: The cabanas by the river are wonderful but I don't think you can go wrong with any of their faci...

My son wanted to go to the amazon and prior to trip I wasn't that excited. But I must say I loved it. If you are interested in nature , birding, it is fantastic. The guides were very knowledgeable and helpful. Rooms were comfortable and clean and food was fantastic. i don't know how they do it. I've also stayed at inkaterra in Aguas Calientes and it was also fantastic.Now I will say if that someone is looking for a 5 star hotel then they probably should not be in the amazon. Again, we loved it and feel that Inkaterra did a fantastic job.
