Hotel Description

Nestled on the banks of Laguna Azul about 15 miles southeast from the town of Tarapoto, the El Sauce Resort is a peaceful oasis with comfortable lodgings, a wide variety of on-site and off-site activities, entertainment and relaxation options including a full-service spa.

Stone foundations, bamboo accents, handmade wooden furniture, and colorful works of art decorate the resort's 10 guest rooms and 12 detached bungalows. Each spacious unit is equipped with a ceiling fan, satellite-connected television set, private bathroom, and furnished veranda.

There is a playground for children, a game room with foosball and a billiards table, two outdoor swimming pools, and a hot tub. The property is covered with green manicured lawns and tropical gardens, which can be admired from a hammock or a lounger on the pool deck.

The on-site spa features wet and dry saunas, massage treatments and beauty therapies. Water sports activities on offer include jet skiing, tubing, water skiing, canoeing and sailing. The lake and its surroundings is also excellent for hiking, fishing and swimming. Guests can inquire after daily activities or arrange for excursions at the front desk.


The resort is situated at a green area on the banks of a jungle lake in the Sauce district at about 15 miles from Tarapoto. Many exciting activities can be enjoyed right on the property. Aside from the spa and swimming pools, there is a stable on site from which guests can embark a horseback riding tour. Jet-skis, kayaks, canoes and sail and motor boats are available and can be used on the lake.

Guided tours and activities that can be booked at the hotel or through local tour agencies include boat rides, hikes to the waterfalls, canoe fishing, visits to a nature reserve rich in bird and animal life, night walks into the jungle, and day trips to an orchid farm. The small town of Sauce can be easily reached on foot or by taxi, and has some picturesque spots as well as traditional-style eateries.

Food & Beverage

A buffet breakfast of seasonal fruits, citrus juices, sweet breads, coffee, and much more is included in the room rate. The resort's restaurant uses fresh local ingredients and Peruvian seasonings to create unique interpretations of well-known international dishes for lunch and dinner. Classic cocktails, regional drinks, fine wine, and imported liquor can be purchased at the bars. Guests are welcomed to use the outdoor BBQ facilities during their stay.
