Stay in a jungle lodge in the Amazon rainforest!
An adventurous stay in the heart of the Amazon
Whether on the shores of Amazonian lakes, on the banks of the Amazon river and its tributaries or more set back on the mainland, integrating into the landscape is of upmost importance for these hotels at the end of the world.
The exclusivity and isolated location of the typical Amazon lodge will delight those concerned with serenity, comfort and space. The excursion timetable is flexible, and is planned depending on the weather conditions and the season.
The architecture and location of these lodges are varied to adapt to all types of travelers. Some will appreciate the tree cabins that give you the feeling of living in harmony with the surrounding nature. Others will prefer the charming bungalows, fully equipped with modern comforts. For those who don’t want to be too far from Manaus or those who have young children there are also good options.
We have selected only lodges built with the preservation of their surroundings in mind. The architecture and decoration are directly inspired from the local natural habitat, causing minimal invasion if any.
All the lodges we have selected offer an interesting option for those looking for good conditions in which to appreciate the beauty and diversity of this natural sanctuary known as the Amazon forest.
Activities and entertainment to enhance your jungle experience
If you wish, you can adapt your stay to include activities where you actively participate, wonder at the natural surroundings and learn lots of new things.
If you choose to take part, you will love the days where guides accompany you on wonderful excursions that combine adventure and learning throughout your stay. Also, if you come all the way into the middle of the Amazon, it would be a shame not to visit the regional capital of Manaus to see its incredible heritage. There are some beautiful buildings in the historical centre, dating back to the rich rubber era of the 19th century. These include the famous Amazonas theatre and the CIGS, the zoo where you can get close up to some of the rarer animals such as the shy tapir or the jaguar.
Juma Lodge : a hotel perched high up in the canopy
If you are an explorer at heart, this is simply your dream destination. A plain but very comfortable and pleasant group of bungalows perched on stilts and linked by wooden bridges up in the trees.
You will spend an unforgettable few days in this Amazon lodge, surrounded by jungle, totally immersed in the largest tropical forest in the world ! Built out of local materials and equipped with solar panels and ecological facilities, the Juma Lodge offers a perfect compromise between traditional charm and modern comforts. It majestically sits on the banks of the river and has its feet in the water most of the year. Juma is in the middle of the forest 3 hours from Manaus. It is so isolated that the transfer is an adventure in itself, first by boat then by vehicle. During the final boat ride you can see the famous ‘encounter of the waters’ where the dark waters of the Rio Negro form an enchanting spectacle when meeting the muddy waters of Rio Solimoes. Together they form the Amazon !
Your luxury stay in the Amazon : Anavilhanas Jungle Lodge
In the heart of the Anavilhanas islands, 3 hours from Manaus, there is the Anavilhanas jungle lodge, probably the best lodge in the rainforest. It is a luxury site and offers the most comfortable facilities you can find for a stay in the Amazon.
Each bungalow has top quality installations satisfying the most exigent of customers, as well as a large bay window opening onto a veranda facing the extraordinary rainforest. It is a choice destination for a luxury stay in the Amazon or for a honey moon.
For 4 days and 3 nights or more, adventure into the most wild and conserved parts of the Brazilian Amazon along the rivers and other “igarapés” to get closer to nature and its wonders.
The Amazon Eco Park lodge
An ideal place for travelers looking for a more classic location. A great place to bring children and to learn about your surroundings staying in an eco-conscious environment. It’s a good choice for younger or more active people with lots of different forest exploration excursions. Ideal for those with little time as the transfer is only 1hr from Manaus.
