Amazon - Juma Lodge
The lodge is located in the heart of the Amazon Forest, just 100 km from Manaus, and 2hours and 30 minutes by car and boat.
The Juma lodge was designed to be totally integrated to the jungle. The construction and operation of the lodge comply with and respect the limitations of the environment. The lodge was built on solid ground and is supported on stilts. This type of construction is necessary during the flood season, when the river water level rises up to 20m (66 feet).
All the materials used in the construction are plentiful in the region and judiciously extracted from the forest. Timber from trees such as the angelim, itaúba, aquariquara, tintarana and jacareúba were used on walls, passage ways and stilts, while the leaves of the babaçu tree are used as roof covering, just like the native houses.
Accommodations: Despite this environmental concern, the lodge offers excellent facilities for your stay: 11 comfortable rooms with verandah, hammock, fan, minibar, and private bath. Some bungalows are facing the forest and others face the Juma Rives. All accommodations offer total privacy and were projected to be fully integrated into the surrounding forest.
The restaurant, specialized in both regional and international cuisine, has a dazzling view to the lake. The communion of the lodge with the nature is crowned by the constant presence of monkeys, macaws and toucans.
