Refugio Amazonas | Trip Accommodations

Refugio Amazonas is built using a combination of traditional native materials (wood, palm fronds, wild cane and clay) and architecture and modern day eco-lodge technology. The lodge consists of four wings of 8 rooms connected by raised boardwalks to a central, two story, 20 foot tall common area. This area has distinct ambiences serving as lobby, dining room, bar, shop and lounge. This structure is the heart of Refugio’s atmosphere: it provides great canopy views of the surrounding forest – from a hammock … and a whistle away from a drink!

The entire roof of the lodge is constructed using high quality crisneja palm fronds, whereas the floors are of tropical mahogany.

Refugio Amazonas has 5 Superior, 23 Comfort, and 4 Amazon Suites:

Quaint, comfortable rooms in the middle of the tropical rainforest allow guests to experience this global biodiversity hotspot even during their down time. Monkeys, many species of birds, frogs, and other rainforest wildlife are often visible from our signature windowless verandahs. Those same verandahs also add comfort with excellent ventilation. Our Superior rooms are built with local materials such as tropical hardwoods, palms, bamboo, and adobe.
Our Superior Rooms are available as doubles or triples and come equipped with mosquito nets for the beds and have spacious private bathrooms with hot water.
