Awasi brings you the Iguazú Falls
as you have never before
experienced them.

Located just 20 minutes from the world’s largest waterfalls, Awasi’s new 14-room lodge is situated on the banks of the River Iguazú, surrounded by the Atlantic Rainforest. Each villa is assigned with a private guide and 4WD, allowing guests to explore at their own pace, visiting where they want, in their own time.

A refuge in the Jungle

The Atlantic Rainforest

Awasi Iguazú is the perfect spot to enjoy the world famous National Park and its surroundings, while also enjoying especially crafted excursions that go beyond the falls.

After days spent exploring the impressive natural scenery in and around the Iguazú Falls, return to Awasi for a swim in your own private plunge pool, a drink at the bar in the main lodge and long evening meals in our restaurant.

“… the Paraná flows through the bottom of an immense canyon whose walls,
a hundred metres high, entomb the river. From the river banks, bordered
with black towers of basalt, rises the equally black forest.
Ahead, on either side, behind, the endless mournful rock walls, at the
bottom of which the rushing river flows in incessant bubbles of muddy water.
The landscape is fierce, and a deathly silence reigns over it.
At dusk, however, its calm and gloomy beauty exudes a singular majesty.”

Adrift by Horacio Quiroga (1878-1937)

The first known European to visit the Iguazú Falls was the
Spanish conquistador, Álvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca, in 1541.

Argentina's Misiones Province took its name from the Jesuit Missionaries
who came to this region in the 1600s. Over the following centuries,
they worked to protect the Guarani people and their villages.
Their tale is told in the film, The Mission with Robert De Niro.

Inheritance

The early 20th century saw considerable levels of European immigration to Misiones, many worked on the land harvesting crops such as yerba mate or working on orange or grapefruit plantations.
