This tranquil community-run ecolodge is located close to the confluence of the Rupununi and Rewa Rivers, an area renowned for its diversity and abundance of wildlife. Guests can enjoy fine views of the Rewa River from a clearing on the riverbank.
Accommodation consists of five cabins, each with twin beds with mosquito nets, a large en suite bathroom with a sink, cold water shower and flushing toilet, and a large verandah with hammocks for relaxing. Another two traditionally constructed benabs each contain two bedrooms with twin beds, which share the adjacent communal bathrooms with sink, cold water shower and flushing toilet.
Delicious traditional meals are served in a large benab that contains the dining area, kitchen and a small bar. The main living area has a small library of wildlife guides, and you can purchase the traditional craftwork that is on display. Breakfast is served at tables that overlook the river, and from your seat you might be able to see blue-and-yellow macaws, toucans and brown-backed bearded saki. The lodge is just a 10-minute walk from the local village, where you can visit the small primary school. Rewa offers a choice of activities, including boat trips along the river, a hike up Awarmie Mountain and excursions by dugout canoe.
A combination of solar panels plus generator is used to generate power at the lodge, although electricity is not available 24 hours a day. All cabins and benabs have electricity with US-style two-prong, flat-pin sockets; and Wi-Fi – albeit at slow speeds.
