Enjoy all the comfort from our charming cottages over the “El Paraíso” river or the heights of the big trees of the jungle. Each cottage is an intimate world built with recycled woods and broad with warm spaces that are an invitation to rest and are also open to the river views and the Yabotí Biosphere Reserve. The decks with lounge chairs and hammocks and the private quay allow you to relax in the calmness of an unique and exclusive setting.
At Don Enrique we have four broad and luminous cottages, decorated with an exquisite charm that is harmonically merged with the lush beauty of surrounding nature. Each of them is made of a broad main room with double bed, a desk and a salamander, and a second room with twin beds communicating with the deck, in which up to five people can fit. We also have a smaller cottage, which is perfect for two or three people.
In its construction we were guided by the eco design principles and the sustainable architecture. The rooms have a passive refrigeration system that makes air conditioner unnecessary: the cottages are situated above elevated platforms, which have a crossed ventilation system and the vegetation wraps them in order to absorb heat and provide with fresh air.
As part of our compromise with the renewable energies, we generate part of the necessary energy in order to heat water in our showers through hydro salamanders.
The recreational spaces are an invitation to share in pure nature games, drink mate, and have relaxing moments: barbecue area with grill, drinks bar, library, playground, quay and decks that enable you to dive into the river well, stove and mangrullo.
The Wi-Fi service is only available in the common spaces of the house, as to connect always with nature.
