Elite Traveler November-December 2017



Rather than a personalized butler, howler monkeys and an array of rare birds provide the wake-up calls at Cristalino, a designer eco lodge tucked away in the remote Amazonian rainforest. This standalone bungalow is the largest and most secluded, encircled by a private lawn where capybaras congregate in the afternoon sun. The spacious bedroom fans out onto a private jungle terrace, anteroom with additional two beds and alfresco jungle bathroom, where you can wallow in a giant tub encased in palm trees. The bungalow is accessible only by boat and is powered exclusively by solar power. The surrounding forest is home to more than seven species of monkey, including the endemic white-whiskered spider monkey, and a rich array of birdlife, butterflies and orchids. From the lodge’s 164ft observation towers (the highest in Brazil) you can watch the jungle wake up from above the forest canopy. Private guiding with bird specialists is available upon request. Special amenities Private boat transfers for guests on the Cristalino River, daily guided excursions, private guide and naturalist experts available Size 850 sq ft Number of bedrooms One (with an anteroom for two children to sleep) Nightly rate from $372 Contact Priscilla Eilert, office@cristalinolodge.com.br, +55 663 521 1396, cristalinolodge.com.br
