Maudie Tomlinson (Staff)

During a two-night stay at Awasi, I conclude that at the heart of this hotel is warm, authentic, completely personalized service. Having a private guide with years of experience working in the national park made all the difference, and she was also just lovely company and we didn't have to think about a thing. Outside of visiting the falls, Awasi have developed some off-the-beaten track excursions, we took the speed boat on the Alto Parana, a tranquil river trip with a secluded lunch spot with only the birds and butterflies for company which was a lovely way to spend a sunny morning. However, the main draw is definitely the falls and the Awasi guides make sure you see them at the least crowded times where possible. With two nights, focus on the falls and the beautiful hotel facilities, and with three nights, you can explore beyond the falls and indulge a little more in Awasi's signature hospitality. Having got a Relais and Chateaux stamp of approval just months after opening, this is a jungle hide-away for foodies. A very sophisticated menu makes each meal feel like a special occasion, with delicious wine pairing on offer (or cocktails for those in the party spirit). I also loved their evening lecture on Jaguars, and spending time with the local Guarani people learning crafts in the evening. Awasi exceeds at going the extra mile, sharing that Scott Dunn ethos of 'nothing is too much trouble', which makes for a truly memorable stay.
