lodges are slightly bigger than
the rooms, each having its own
private bathroom. The lodges/rooms
are generally equiped with one double-bed plus 4 single beds. Each two
rooms may be conected through
an interiour door. In addition to this, we may accomodate up to 30 hammocks
or 18 mattresses in the indigous "Maloka",
which includes its own, multiple shower and bathroom facility, or up to
24 hammokcs or 16 mattresses in our "Enramada", which does not
hold its own sanitary installation. Eventhough the presence of mosquitoes
is reduced, they prefer the borders of the closed neo-tropical rainforest
and mostly appear between 16:00° and 19:00° hours, all lodges,
rooms and other constructions
are fully sealed and we offer "Baking-made" mosquito-nets for
each and every bed and hammock.
Each lodge/room carries dark curtains for visitors which prefer to sleep
into the day as well as petrol lamps which shed light to the lodges/rooms
and bathrooms. The bathrooms are equiped with a shower, a toilet and a
handbasin, all rendering fresh, clean water 24 hours a day, and we urge
our guests/visitors to only use the bio-degradable soap and shampoo handed
out by the staff of the Reserva Natural Palmari at no cost.
Each visitor will receive a clean, dry towell and each bed will be fully
equiped with a semi-orthopedic matress, one protective sheet for the matress,
one pillow per guest plus the full set of sheets and linnen for each bed
or hammock. Each lodge offers a small front terrace with a view to the
"Javarí" river and the possibility to place a hammock,
a table and 2 beach chairs provided by the staff and to be returned, hopefully,
clean and dry.
All constructions, rooms, lodges,
restaurant and terraces are connected by means of wooden walk-ways covered
by palm ceilings, elevated above the ground in order to avoid our guests
walking on muddy, slippery and un-even terrain or getting wet.
