Mirante do Gavião


Rainforest retreat

As deep into the Amazon Rainforest as you can reach by land, Mirante do Gavião is a contemporary ecolodge set on the Rio Negro inspired by the boatbuilding techniques of the region.

There are 12 suites in total including curved bungalows, family treehouses and larger options with hot tubs and balconies.

Meaning ‘the hawk’s lookout, the lodge has been built to make the most of the views of the river and Anavilhanas archipelago with vistas from the swimming pool, restaurant and a collection of elevated lookouts for spotting birds and sloths.
