Misiónes, Argentina


Same concept, new location,
Awasi brings you the Iguazú
Falls as you have never before
experienced them.

Located just 15 minutes from the world’s largest waterfalls, Awasi’s new 14-room lodge will open towards the end of 2017. Situated on the banks of the River Iguazú, each villa will be assigned with a private guide and 4WD, allowing guests to explore at their own pace, visiting where they want, when they want, and for however long they want.

  • A refuge in the jungle

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

Iguazú, the falls and beyond

Said to be one of the seven natural wonders of the world, the Iguazú Falls are spectacular to behold. Stretching for almost three kilometres spanning Argentina and Brazil, this immense mass of water is the world’s largest waterfall system.

Of course, most people come to this corner of the world to see the falls, but there are many more sights to behold when you find yourself in this neck of the woods.

The Gods of Iguazú

The legend goes that a deity set his sights on marrying a beautiful local maiden called Naipí. Sadly for the god, his love was not reciprocated, and the young woman fled in a canoe with her mortal lover, Tarobá. Angry beyond all measure, the god decided to chop up the River Iguazú, creating multiple waterfalls and condemning the lovers to an eternal fall.

From gods to men who thought
they were immortal…

The first known European to record the falls, was the Spanish conquistador, Álvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca, in 1541.
