Relais and Chateaux: Delfin Amazon Cruises
| Peru Amazon Cruises
The Delfin Amazon Cruises recently joined the Relais and Chateaux luxury chain. As a global association, the Relais and Chateaux fellowship represents gourmet restaurants and luxury hotels around the world. Its prestigious reputation reshapes the concept of luxury hotels, inviting its customers on an exceptional journey. Due to the group's strict admission standards, members must have specific features distinguishing them from chain hotels. Relais & Chateaux properties are often historic landmarks such as castles, manor houses, or townhouses in idyllic settings that offer exquisite cuisine.
In this case, the Relais & Chateaux Delfin Amazon Cruises are located in one of the most thrilling places on Earth, the Peruvian Amazon jungle. Exotic birds adorn the branches of every tree and the water teems with marine animals. There is no place like it and these luxury river cruises have been specifically designed to help you get the most of your time here.
The three Delfin cruises: Delfin I, Delfin II and Delfin III all cruise to the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve and carve seamlessly through the water around that area. The riverboats are masterpieces of architectural design and encompasses all the comfort and style needed to make your experience unforgettable.
Each room aboard the Delfin cruise ships boasts panoramic windows, which allow guests to take in some utterly stunning views of the water as they wake up in the morning. The color scheme of the rooms is neutral, with creams and beige featuring heavily alongside wooden furnishings for a rustic yet luxurious feel. Modern en-suites are attached to the rooms and are equipped with a range of lavish toiletries.
Days aboard the boat can be filled in a variety of different manners. There is a plunge pool on the deck of the Delfin III, where guests can cool off and an upper deck, which is the perfect place for sipping a cocktail in the sun. If you haven’t tried a pisco sour yet, this is the place to do it. In the evenings, there is nothing better than watching the sun set over the water, casting purple and orange rays across the sky, from the comfort of your room or one of the indoor communal areas.
The restaurant aboard the Delfin is one of the gems in the gleaming crown of this boat. The menu consists of a number of Peruvian classics, thrown together with some international options to satisfy all tastes. Dishes are exquisitely presented as well as hearty and healthy. You certainly won’t mind dining here every evening as you cruise along the Amazon River.
If you are in need of a bit of rest and relaxation and dozing in a sun lounger on the upper deck just won’t cut it then it’s time to head to the spa. The Delfin spa aboard boat II and III, is ideal for those looking to be rejuvenated. Choose from a range of massages and treatments and leave feeling like a new you.
Of course, the boat is just part of what makes a cruise on the Delfin so incredible. There are a number of activity options available off the boat for guests that will fill your day with excitement. River trips are a particular favorite as they offer you the chance to do some fishing and to look for famous Amazon River residents, such as the pink river dolphin.
But, the water adventures don’t stop there. The Delfin can also organise canoe trips, fishing, swimming and paddleboarding excursions so you can really get up close and personal with the water. If you would rather keep your feet on dry land then there are a number of land-based activities to choose from. Hiking along some of the enchanting nature trails that wind through the Amazon is a great way to get some exercise and explore the natural beauty of the rainforest.
Alternative activities include photo excursions, bird watching and cooking demonstrations, all of which will increase your understanding and appreciation of the Amazon and the Peruvian way of life.
If you are looking for a completely immersive experience during your time in the Amazon then you should consider a cruise aboard the Delfin Amazon Cruises, now under the distinguishing Relais & Chateaux name. With staff there to cater to your every need, you will be able to explore the Amazon from the unique vantage point of the water. This is an Amazon experience you will never forget.
