Delfin Amazon Cruises has been officially named the only cruise operator in the world to be admitted into the luxury hospitality collection, Relais & Chateaux.
Known for its strict admission standards, members of the exclusive group must offer luxurious facilities and haute cuisine as well as unique accommodation such as castles or manor houses.
Delfin has been connecting guests with the immense biodiversity of the rainforest, since its first cruise into Peru’s Pacaya Samiria National Reserve in 2006.
On board Delfin, guests see the flora and fauna of the forest through floor-to-ceiling windows, enjoy oversized suites (some with their own plunge pools) and dine on exotic Peruvian cuisine inspired by the produce of the region.
Beyond the comforts on board, guests also experience this remote wilderness through jungle trekking, kayaking and visits to small riverbank communities.
“It is a true privilege to join Relais & Chateaux, a collection built on the strict admission standards, impeccable hospitality and refined luxury,” said Aldo Macchiavello, Delfin managing director.
“We are also proud to be recognized for our commitment to upholding the delicate balance at play in our pristine Amazon wilderness through our partnerships with native communities and efforts in environmental sustainability.”
Mr Macchiavello said guests of Delfin experience the ultimate juxtaposition where raw natural beauty meets seamless service, sophistication and style.
“In between skirting along the river banks in search of wildlife, trail walking through the lush rainforest or admiring Pink River Dolphins, guests will be endlessly delighted by the elegant comforts back on board,” Mr Macchiavello said.
