What an experience! 5 star in the amazon with all luxury comforts & dining. We loved our 2 night stay. The staff were fantastic & very helpful. Highly reccomended for a quiet experience with all the amazon has to offer.

Great place in the middle of the jungle, very nice places around like Lake Sandoval and very neat trails to walk into the jungle; grabbing a cacao (where chocolate come from) and eat it right in the middle of the jungle is just superb. There is quite a lot of different exotic animals to watch
We, a group of 10 travelers, have just returned from a trip to Peru with Kuoda Travel Agency. Our first stop on our trip was to the Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica. We stayed there for 3 nights and wished we had booked 4 nights. We were extremely fortunate to have Glhemm Ceari as our guide for the entire length of our stay. He was and exceptional guide. Because of his enthusiasm and great knowledge of his environment, we were able to see a great variety of wildlife. He went out of his way to row us across Lake Sandoval when he spotted the Giant River Otters. We witnessed them hunting and eating their fish. There were many other wildlife that we saw, mainly due to his knowledge and keen senses. His knowledge of the flora and fauna was also incredible. We will never forget the experiences that he left us with.Most importantly, he was compassionate and caring, helping us city people, trek through the mud, etc. We left the Amazonica with life long memories and with a new friend.
Our four days at the Reserva Amazonica were fantastic, a really enjoyable experience in the jungle, and very luxurious! The organisation was excellent, and the transfer was seamless - stopping off in the butterfly house to drop off one of our bags and check in. Even the boat ride to the hotel was exciting and we were lucky enough to even see some wildlife on the way.
The lodges were well set up, and the rooms very comfortable for the middle of the jungle. We particularly enjoyed the hammocks which were good for a mid afternoon nap after some early starts. We had booked a river view room, but when we arrived we realised that our room actually looked directly at the spa, with little or no river view. We complained, and were moved the next day to a proper river view room and given a complimentary massage (which was very nice) to compensate us for the inconvenience. We also really enjoyed the food and there was a great selection - the dining room is great and we loved having a post dinner drink in the lounge areas.
The excursions are the highlight of a trip to this property and we enjoyed all the ones we did. We were luckily enough to see four types of monkeys, a sloth, the river otters, lots of birdlife and creepy crawlies. We also did an interesting trip to a local farm where we tasted lots of exotic fruits. A number of people when we were there didn't go on all the trips for different reasons which I think is a real shame, they are the best thing about staying here and a great way to see all the local wildlife. Overall, this was a real experience and one not to be missed.
From the moment you step off the plane you start the experience of the jungle and all it has to offer. This is something which should not be missed.
We had 3 days of no phones or Internet access and this makes you start to rethink your priorities.
The staff are all very friendly and go the extra mile to help you out. The rooms are individual luxurious cabins set in the grounds of the lodge. The experience is helped by the kerosene lamps needed at night once the generator is switched off. You do need to make use of the insect nets used around the bed at night.
Meals are taken in the central area. With no glass for the windows and only fly screens it can get slightly cold in the evenings. Soft lighting and candles on the tables help create the right ambience. Food is reasonably good quality from a limited menu. Taking into account how far the food has to come and the environment the staff work in, the do extremely well.
The excursions help you start to fully appreciate the amazon jungle and rain forest. Jesus was our guide for 3 days and he made the trip for us. His knowledge, passion, and commitment to sharing and guiding us over that time really made the trip for us. Whilst I am sure our safety was his top priority we felt that he went out of his way to make the experience even more enjoyable.
Thank you to all the staff.
My wife was worried about heading to the Amazon and the creepy crawlies associated but those feelings of worry and fear were quickly wiped away by the amazing setting of Inkaterra. The cabanas are well presented, neat and the screen netting makes you feel like you're actually part of the jungle. Staff are very helpful and are always at hand to deal with any request. Restaurant offers great food and service. Only fault is that the noisy construction of new cabanas were not conducive to midday/afternoon naps which were quite necessary given the humidity and activeness of some of the excursions. There are plenty of excursions to keep you busy and the guides are very knowledgeable and are always keen to show you the wonders of the jungle come rain, hail or shine. Very impressed and can only dream of one day returning.
