Rewa Eco-lodge

Rewa Eco-lodge

One of the country's most remote destinations is Rewa Eco-lodge, a community-tourism project of the small Makushi village of Rewa situated at the confluence of the Rupununi and Rewa Rivers. Years of dedicated hard work allowed the villagers to build their own ecolodge which offers simple but clean, comfortable accommodation with individual cabins nestled at the forest edge, just paces from the river. An impressive benab houses the dining area and bar with breakfast being served on a deck overlooking the river. Their expert guides offer a warm friendly service as they showcase their pristine and biodiverse corner of Guyana.

It is one of the best places for observing the Arapaima, the worlds largest scaled freshwater fish, which are abundant in the many oxbow lakes and river around the lodge. These waterways also offer exceptional sport fishing which is one of the main attractions for some visitors. Rewa Eco-lodge offers a range of exciting experiences such as hiking up Awarmie Mountain where you will have an uninterrupted view across the rainforest. Enjoy comfortable boat trips in search of neotropical wildlife and the unique opportunity to hike through the rainforest to encounter the goliath bird-eating spider. You can also visit the village where you will learn about the local way of life or enjoy a bar-be-que on a sandbank in one of Guyana’s most remote, biologically diverse environments.

Rewa Eco-lodge is located where the Rewa River flows into the Rupununi River, deep in the rainforest of Guyana. This isolated location has no road access and can only be reached by river creating one of the country’s most remote lodges, offering guests the experience of exploring some of the countries most pristine ecology.

Amazing and wonderful staff The staff was extraordinary, mainly at the reception and bar. The hotel is beautiful! The room was very charming and cute. The negative part: it was a bit too noisy due to the bar. Definitely worth going back.

VERY POOR We friends visited the outdoor restaurant (at Cara Lodge) for dinner.While the atmosphere was quite pleasant the service was absolutely lousy and the prices were quite expensive.I ordered a serving of grilled chicken and got bland boiled chicken instead with no seasoning of any sort.

comfortable rooms, good food but SLOW room was very comfortable. a/c worked! dead mouse on glue strip under bathroom did not help much. Wifi! food good to very good but took over an hour to get anything. Staff very helpful although i wouldn't have minded someone helping with my bags (I'm 70) -- i guess i could have asked, though.
the rooms on the ends have windows that are covered with louvers so NO VIEW!
