Amazon Juma Jungle Lodge
Check out the packages for the Juma Amazon Lodge.
The Amazon Juma Jungle Lodge was planned to be a fully integrated jungle hotel. Its construction and operation obey and respect the limitations of the environment which is ultimately its reason for existing. All the materials used in the construction of the hotel, abundant in the region, were carefully drawn from the forest itself. Timber such as angelim, itaúba, aquariquara, tintarana and jacareúba are used on walls, walkways and stilts, while babassu leaves cover in the same process used by forest populations in their homes. This careful extraction avoids the introduction of extraneous elements into the jungle.
The hotel was built on dry land on stilts. This procedure is necessary to meet the flood times of rivers where the water level can rise up to 15 meters. The Juma Amazon Lodge has only 20 cabins, with its construction totally integrated to the Amazon Rainforest.
Despite environmental concerns, the Juma Amazon Lodge offers great features for a jungle hotel with eight cabanas overlooking the forest and twelve to the lake. All with balcony, hammock, fan and private bathroom.
The restaurant, specializing in both local and international cuisine, has a breathtaking view of the lake. The communion of the hotel with nature is crowned by the constant presence of monkeys, macaws and toucans.
At the reception, located in front of a deck overlooking the lake, the Juma has a small bar, some games (cards, backgammon, chess, etc.), Amazon books, painting materials and a professional observation telescope for watch the moon and the stars.
The beachfront restaurant (space with several hammocks) is an excellent option for rest after meals and nature tours.
For the familiarization with the environment and wildlife observation, walks are made through the igarapés (in the dry season of the river) or through the igapós (in the season of the flood). There are several activities developed around the Lodge, all closely linked to nature.
Among the main nature activities are: river bath, canoe trips with and without motor, walks through the forest, fluvial focus of alligators, visit to a caboclo's house, piranhas fishing, stroll through the water, visit to the Flutante Pirarucu, nocturnal walk in the forest, handicraft class, climbing in trees, overnight in the forest sports fishing of the tucunaré, etc.
