Accommodation rating: Luxury
Inspired by the bewitching backwater lagoons of the Peruvian Amazon, the Aqua Nera transports passengers through the flooded forests of the Amazon Basin in style and comfort. The 20 spacious and luxuriously-appointed suites are all river-facing and have floor-to-ceiling windows to showcase the tropical forest scenery. Stylish social areas feature a sleek decor, combining contemporary dark woods and earth tones with a design that echoes cultural influences from Portugal, Spain and Peru. Guests can relax in the elegant lounge or on either of the observation decks, complete with sunbeds and plunge pool, or indulge in a spa treatment. Amazonian, locally sourced, gourmet cuisine is curated by celebrated Peruvian chef Pedro Miguel Schiaffino.
Daily excursions are led by expert naturalist guides into the jungle and along backwater channels by kayak, canoe and on foot, in search of jungle flora and fauna including sloths, toucans and river dolphins.
3-, 4- and 7-night itineraries operate from Nauta and Iquitos.
