The Juma lodge was the designed to be totally integrand 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. this type of construction is necessary due to the flooded season ,when the river water level rives up to 20m(66 feet)
All the materials used in the construction are plentiful in the region, and were judiciously extracted from the forest. timber from trees such as the angelin, and another trees of the region, which is were used on the walls, passage way ,and stilts, while the laves of the babaço trees are used as roof covering, just like the natives houses .
This judicious extraction prevent the introduction of the elements foreign to the jungle.
Despite this environmental concern, the Juma lodge offers excellent facilities for a lodge, located in the jungle and has eight comfortable rooms with veranda, hammocks, fan and prevated bathroom. The restaurant, specialized both in local as in international cosine, has a dazzling view to the lakes.
The communion of the lodge with nature is crowned by the constant presence of monkeys, macaws and toucans.
