THE CONSTRUCTION OF JUMA AMAZON LODGE

Juma Amazon Lodge features 21 intimate bungalows seamlessly nestled into the lush surroundings of the Amazon Rainforest. 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.

Juma Lodge is entirely eco-friendly in design and construction. 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.

LODGE ACCOMMODATIONS

Reflecting its environment, Juma Amazon Lodge is rustic yet beautiful, offering guests an optimized blend of authenticity and comfort. The lodge’s footprint is minimalist, yet elegant in concept. Eight of our 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.

FOREST VIEW BUNGALOWS

Bungalows overlooking the forest are located between the lobby patio and the restaurant. Their location allows for easy access for the elderly or anyone with any locomotive difficulty. Because the forest bungalows are closer to one another, they make for an excellent choice for families with small children.

RIVER VIEW BUNGALOWS

Located in a more secluded and exclusive area of the lodge, our river view bungalows are nestled into the canopy of the trees, reaching 15 meters (49 ft) above the ground during dry season. Ensuring the utmost level of privacy, the river view bungalows were designed to be fully integrated into the forest.

PANORAMIC BUNGALOW

The panoramic bungalow is our biggest bungalow! Located in the treetops, with 32 square meters (344 square feet) in size, it is equipped with a king-size bed and features a round panoramic balcony with two hammocks and a complete and stunning view of the Juma River.

RESTAURANT

The restaurant, specializing in both local and international cuisine, offers its guests an exceptional view of the Juma River. Served buffet style, the menu is constantly changing and offers a great variety of flavors.

LOBBY

Juma’s lobby is home to the lodge’s bar, where guests can entertain themselves with board and table games, books pertaining to the Amazon, painting materials and a professional telescope designed for moon and star observation.

HAMMOCK HOUSE

The hammock house is widely used by guests to rest and reflect after meals or after a day of jungle exploration.

DECKS

Juma features two decks: a floating one, ideal for swimming in the river and sunbathing, and another one built on stilts located directly in front of the lobby and showcasing excellent views of the river.

RIVER POOL

Juma's river pool was thought to be as authentic as possible, allowing full interaction with the river. Around it, it is possible to sunbathe and enjoy a small bar.

MUSEUM

We opened a museum to offer our guests more content and information about the Amazon Rainforest: its fauna, flora, customs, legends, among others.

TAPIRI

"Tapiri" is an indigenous name for a hut. Although inside our property, it is located 10 minutes away from the hotel itself, serving as a base for tours, lunches and even overnight stays in the forest.
