Last week I brought you the Kirkenes Snowhotel -- a marvellous hotel built of snow and ice in Norwegian Lapland. This week, we're heading off to Brazil, to dream over the Ariau Amazon Towers, a uniquely fabulous resort located 35 miles from Manuas, Brazil . The Ariau is a hotel where you can truly have a room with a view, and then some! Built among the Amazon treetops, each of the Ariau's towers are joined together by four miles of wooden catwalks. Monkeys, parrots, macaws, and butterflies are everywhere, and I imagine the noise is tremendous! There is a large, circular dining room of polished tropical woods, serving amazing tropical fruits, warm Brazilian pastries, breads, cheeses, and strong Brazilian coffee for breakfast, and equally delicious fare for lunch and dinner. And, the rooms, where you wake up every morning, high among the trees, with beautiful panoramic views, and lovely tropical sounds -- well, they are to die for! Here are some pictures of the Ariau to put you in a sunny, happy mood. I hope you all have fabulous weekends, and I'll see you next Friday with another installment of Unique Hotels! Until Monday!
