The lodging at Sacha was carefully designed to offer comfort to the traveler yet preserve the environment and rainforest ambience. All the cabins, with high thatched roofs and private shaded terraces, are constructed with traditional materials and hidden among the lush surroundings. Each of the 26 rooms provide a private bathroom with flushing toilet and hot shower. All cabins are screened against insects, and contain ceiling fans above two comfortable double beds. During free time, visitors may overlook the jungle from hammocks and often report seeing wild fauna such as toucans, agoutis and monkeys right from their own cabin! Added features at Sacha are a 900' long canopy walk suspended 120' above the forest floor and a butterfly house where guests can wander through 'the flying room".
