AWASI IGUAZU LOCATION
Just 20 minutes from the Puerto Iguazu Airport and the Argentinian entrance to the Iguazu National Park, Awasi Iguazu occupies a large private plot of rainforest. The main attraction of the park is undoubtedly the Iguazu Falls, the largest falls in the world in terms of volume.
Depending on the season and water flow, Iguazu has as many as 275 distinct cascades within its two-mile wide, horseshoe-shaped curve.
But perhaps the most spectacular section of the falls is known as La Garganta del Diablo, or “The Devil’s Throat.” There, the Iguazu River crashes 240 feet to its lower course.
The Iguazu National Park is also home to over 2,000 species of plants and indigenous wildlife of the region including howler monkeys, jaguars, and giant anteaters.
AWASI IGUAZU ACCOMADATIONS
Awasi Iguazu’s 13 standard villas and 1 master villa are planted within a thick rainforest with nothing but open sky and buzzing branches waiting outside the doors.
Each cozy villa is built on stilts for minimal environmental impact and the interiors are accented with traditional baskets woven by the indigenous Guarani people, who still inhabit the region.
Each villa is fitted with a mini-bar, bathtub, robes, slippers, ambient-temperature plunge pool, sundeck, and Wi-Fi. In-room massages can also be arranged for an additional fee.
Measuring 1,076 square feet, each of the 13 standard villas has a coffee corner and large living room, as well as a large deck, lounge chairs and a plunge pool. These villas are primarily designed for couples or two friends.
Measuring 1,614 square feet, this exclusive master villa has a spacious living area and a larger plunge pool allowing plenty of space for two couples or families.
