In the heart of the Amazon jungle, the Hamadryade Lodge offers luxurious seclusion. Its five bungalows have views out over the Amazon river, seating areas with panoramic views, ecologically made wooden furniture, Italian linens, and ceiling fans. French owners Sebastien and Melanie have made every effort to create a comfortable and elegant space for guests, and so offer beautiful gardens, a common area, guest parking, and outdoor pool with terrace.
Activities at the lodge include fishing, whitewater rafting, kayaking, taking walks in the jungle (at night or by day), visits to the butterfly garden, visits to indigenous communities of different ethnic groups, walks to lagoons and waterfalls, and canoe trips. Specialized tours can also be arranged upon request, as can massage services. Transportation to the lodge can be organized by the staff.
