“This highly unusual hotel consists of 12 luxury tents, actually floating on the river and surrounded by nature
The tents are very spacious. Many of their “”walls”” can be rolled up to provide panoramic top-to-floor “”windows”” consisting of mosquito-proof netting if you prefer a view to privacy. Each tent has a private veranda with loungers and direct access to the river. There is a nice sitting area, several fans that can be adjusted to your own comfort, a DVD player (and a choice of DVDs from the reception) and rain coats (which unfortunately we needed). The bathroom has a barrel shower, which we thought was fun.
Breakfast is served à la carte and staff was extremely flexible to adapt to special wishes and changes. For dinner, there was a choice of set meals, but equally a large à la carte menu.
The lodge offers a variety of excursions against payment (boat trip to the waterfall, canoeing in the mangroves and visiting a local school, hikes in the rainforest, sunset cruise) as well as a short free boat trip to see the fireflies after dusk. We were unlucky with the weather, as it was raining all afternoons and thus we were not able to do the canoeing or the sunset cruise.
We experienced great hospitality and particularly appreciated that management was permanently around, actively engaging with the guests and supporting all staff.
There is no wifi apart from an emergency access via the phone of the manager.
We stayed for 4 nights.”
