Experience the rustic elegance at one of the most remote lodges designed for travelers in the world.

  • The founding vision of Kapawi Ecolodge and Reserve is to create – in one of the most remote environments in the world – a haven of ease, good taste, and understated luxury.

  • To this end, skilled Achuar craftsmen came together to build a series of comfortable cabins in the vernacular style of the rainforest, using local materials but upgraded in design and furnishings to appeal to the tastes and requirements of today’s traveler.

  • A raised boardwalk connects all of the guest’s cabins and the several large communal buildings at Kapawi, all of which rest on stilts around the edge of an ephemeral lagoon crowded with plant and bird life.

  • Each of the thatched roof guest cabins is an expression of authentic, traditional Achuar design concepts, meaning that they are attractive, spacious, sustainable, well-ventilated, and creature-proof.

  • Each cabin has a spacious screened-in sleeping area and private bath with solar heated water  available on most afternoons (depending on weather). Cabins are fully screened – windows, floors, roofs – and each bed has its own mosquito net.

  • Every room is equipped with a security box. On your room you can relax in a hammock or deck chair and observe the daily visitors: ducks, hummingbirds, egrets, and kingfishers. You can listen to the night music of the multitude of frogs and other nocturnal creatures.
