What We Love
- An eco-friendly stay high in the Amazon rainforest canopy, with breakfast, lunch and dinnerSleeping in the tops of the same trees that house monkeys and tropical birds
- Savoring the hearty, nourishing Peruvian fare served up at the main lodge
- Opting to take an excursion to see Amazonian plant life and wildlife, like macaws or pink dolphins
What To Know
- Treehouse One (Dos Ramas) is closest to the main lodge while Treehouse Eight (The Cradle) is the most secluded
- Five different monkey species have been seen around the retreat; you'll likely catch sight of squirrel or howler monkeys on your treehouse bridge
- Treehouses are enclosed in mosquito mesh and indoors you'll find a safe, first-aid kit, fire extinguisher and walkie talkie should you need to contact the main lodge
On the black waters of the Yarapa River in the heart of the Peruvian Amazon sits Treehouse Lodge, a 345-acre rainforest preserve. This TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence-winning jungle habitat boasts unparalleled access to the wonders of nature, with its unique lodgings set high in the canopy. Between the primary-growth rainforest and the hotel’s eco-friendly measures, such as using solar power to self-generate electricity, this stretch of tropical land is essentially untouched.
During your stay, you’ll benefit from unforgettable excursions to appreciate the local plant life and wildlife, although there’s more than enough nature to go around on the property itself. On the premises, you’re likely to see five species of monkeys, colorful macaws and parakeets and, if you venture to where the Yarapa meets the Ucayali River, even a pink dolphin. If it sounds extraordinary, it is – here in this beautiful stretch of the rainforest, extraordinary is perfectly normal.
Good to know
The hotel is committed to making its setting comfortable for all its guests. Staff will transport your luggage to and from your Treehouse, and paths are lit at night to ensure a safe walk to and from the lodge. Mosquito netting protects every bed.
Consistent with the property’s eco-friendliness, showers feature only cool water.
Treehouses are breathtaking structures, set high in the trees in the middle of the jungle. You’ll find them equipped with fresh, white linens, a sink, a toilet and a shower, plus comfortable and tropical-inspired furniture, including one king or two twin beds. The showers only supply cool water, but after a day of adventure you’re sure to enjoy the refreshment. A fine layer of mosquito mesh around the Treehouse and every bed allows you to appreciate nature without distraction.
Enjoy three Peruvian meals a day at the Main Lodge, which provides shelter from the insects and the elements. Inventive dishes of protein and vegetables will nourish and satisfy you during your stay.
Set on the Yarapa River, a tributary to the Amazon River, Treehouse Lodge is an Amazonian sanctuary. It has 345 acres of preserved Amazon rainforest to its name, plus protected land surrounding it, so you’ll feel completely immersed in an untouched portion of primary rainforest. Treehouse Lodge is also located near Iquitos, Peru, considered the capital of the Peruvian Amazon. Here, you’ll find the largest traditional market in the region, plus incredible biodiversity at every turn.
How to Get There
Stayed 5 nights & loved every minute of it. Private guide & boat driver. We took about 3 activities/day to explore Amazon. Activities are usually 8:30am-11:30am & 4:30pm-7:30pm. We took most of activities in the 6 days. My favorites are "sunrise w/ pink dolphin","night cruise:caiman","Jungle walk:monkey" & "amazon community" where I got to hold a sloths. "bird watching" & "piranha fishing" are also nice. Staffs are all very friendly. Excellent food (dinner 3 courses, lunch 2 courses). Lodge currently has 12 tree houses & still expanding. Each tree house is unique & has its pros and cons. We stayed at #5. It's older but lovely. Pros: short walk to the main house, short climb (2 floors), private balcony (lower level), private hanging bridge (no passing traffic) and WIFI (weak but enough to check email and do messaging, 1&2 may also have wifi signal since they are closer to the main house). Cons: too close to #4 that I can hear every conservation from #4. We also had a chance to tour other tree houses, my favorites are #10 & #12 (newest w/ balcony like #10, located pass #7 by climbing 100+ steps then through 3 hanging bridges). 2 departure time(10am & 1pm). We left at 1 so were able to do one more activity in the morning. Went in August & have limited access to certain areas due to low water level. However, a lot of sunshine & beautiful sunsets. Only 5 minutes rain out of the 6 days. Overall, we had a great time & Treehouse is the best choice to stay in Amazon.
Amazon is a beautiful jungle and has amazing sunset view . In order to see the mysterious jungle, we decided to book this treehouse
This treehouse is around USD1400 per night for us(2 adults, I kid) . We stayed at treehouse number 10. I found it's perfect. I booked direct with the hotel and they said this one is one of the best one, newer, higher,and not too far from the restaurant and close to river so less mosquitoes.
The treehouse do not have any window but double mosquitoes nets to cover. And each bed have a mosquitoes net too. Electricity is not sufficient in the tree house. So, we won't have a hair dryer in room. And the worst is, there is no hot water for bathing. I went there in winter. Water is cold but not freezingly cold. So we have no choice but to bath in the morning instead of night time. I recommamd you bring a torch as at night, but I the room is too dim and it's hard to find your clothes or pack your lugguage. And a strong one heard torch is highly recommamd as one of the activities is to find the caiman ????. It is more fun if you have a strong heard torch.
Hat with Mosquito net for covering fave is recommended. When I removed it, my face got bite. I also wore anti mosquitoes clothes and pants. Only few Mosquitoes at the day time but more at night. They provide boots for jungle walk, so you don't need to bring one.
Food is ok, I recommend u not to eat beef and only eat deep fried fish, pizza, sausage, pork, chicken.
Beef taste terrible here. Other way of cooking for fish is very fishy too. Deep fried fish is good.
Spending two nights is very enough here.
We arrived to Iquitoes airport at 9-10am, and we arrived to the treehouse around 12:30pm.
Tip is highly recommended.
Unlike Africa, Amazon is still a developing area, do not expect the same level of guide service, accommodation here. If this one is in Africa, I will give it a three stars. But as this is the best in Amazon (from Peru), so I give it 5 stars.
We had wonderful time. I practically like watching dolpin at sunset, but I my daughter likes visiting village as she can hug the sloth.
We both had wonderful time here
One of a kind experience. Gotta be prepared to rough it (no hot water, the occasional bug on your sheet, the heat ...) but the roughing it is precisely what makes this the most memorable experience. We stayed in treehouse 11, five of us in a tri-level treehouse. The lodge’s staff are exceptional and will go to great lengths to ensure your stay is comfortable (even spending an hour looking for and spraying your room when you come across a particularly disturbing centipede). And safety IS their #1 priority and you can sense it from the moment you meet them (in our case, at the airport). Our fabulous guide Oscar the Great was a walking Amazon encyclopedia. He spotted and named every creature you can possibly find in that part of the Amazon, from sloths, to birds, monkeys, tarantulas, alligators and more I cannot retain, sharing details and specifics for each species. WOW!
The itinerary is prepared upon arrival at the treehouse and follows a “your wish is my command” module. Each guide has an assistant who acts as the boat driver, animal finder, Arts and crafts assistant, etc.
it was a most enriching experience and I can say for certain, that once you’re going there, DO THE TREEHOUSE. There’s nothing more unique.
