If you are going into the deep Amazon be sure to get a good lodge. With its prime location, in one of the most pristine and untouched areas of the Amazon Rainforest, Juma Amazon Lodge is an intimate and inviting property haromoniously nestled into the forest environment which defines it.
Juma Lodge is entirely eco-friendly in design and construction and features 21 intimate bungalows. In order to accommodate the water levels of the wet season (often rising up to 15 meters, or 49 feet), the property was built on stilts upon solid ground resting at treetop level.
All materials used in the construction of Juma are native and found abundantly in the region, carefully extracted from the surrounding area. Both the construction and the architectural style of the lodge reflect the techniques employed by Amazon River natives when building their own homes.
Eight bungalows offer views of the surrounding forest, 12 are riverfront and one is panoramic. All bungalows have private bathrooms with hot water solar systems, porches with hammocks and ceiling fans ideal for the Amazonian night, which tends to be far cooler than Manaus.
In addition to the standard amenities, the lodge also provides a 8 x 5 meters wide pool with sun loungers, sun umbrelones and a bar.
When talking about activities, Juma Amazon Lodge offers various options and excursions emphasizing our natural habitat, beginning with the awe-inspiring Meeting of the Waters, a site visited during guests’ transfer to the lodge via Manaus. All activities are arranged in a small groups, allowing for a more personalized experience with highly knowledgeable guides and a more meaningful interaction with the jungle.
