Juma Lodge is unique because it 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, which is the very reason for the hotel to exist. The lodge was built on solid ground and is supported on stilts, 15m over the river level during the dry season. Despite this environmental concern, Juma offers excellent facilities for a lodge located in the jungle and has 20 comfortable rooms with veranda, hammock, fan, and private bath.
The restaurant, specialized both in local ad international cuisine, has a dazzling view to the lake. The communion of the lodge with nature is crowned by the constant presence of monkeys, macaws and toucans.
This type of construction is necessary due to the flood season, when the river water level rises up to 15m. All materials used in the construction are plentiful in the region and were judiciously extracted from the forest. Timber from trees such as the angelim, itaúba, aquariquara, tintarana an jacareúba were used on walls, passage ways and stilts while the leaves of the babaçu tree are uses as roof covering, just like the native houses. This judicious extraction prevents the introduction of elements foreign to the jungle. Developed to minimize the environmental impact, the structure was designed with the same natural material as the local communities. Seeds, leaves, fibers, lianas, sticks, etc… Besides the rich raw material, the project optimizes natural researchers as light, ventilation and acoustic isolation.
