Rooms & Suites: 210
A 15-minute helicopter ride up the Rio Negro river from Brazil's Amazon-gateway town of Manaus, this fantastical 210-suite hotel perches on stilts, at treetop level. Favored by such bigwigs as Jacques Cousteau, Bill Gates and Helmut Kohl.
The Ariau Amazon Towers Hotel is located 35 miles from Manaus, Brazil at the confluence of the Rio Negro and Ariau Creek. Built entirely at the level of Rainforest Canopy, Ariau's towers are linked together by 4 miles of sturdy wooden catwalks. Exotic excursions as piranha fishing, Caiman spotting by moonlight, Jungle Treks and pink dolphin sightings. Sitting still in your hardwood tree house, you'll start to spot the wildlife: an alligator-like caiman, an Amazonian hawk, an ocelot, a freshwater manatee.
