Amazon Resort Island was designed by an Italian architect based on the ideas from the current owner. A local architect from Manaus was also involved with consulting. Ground breaking began in 2004 and the whole project was overseen carefully and meticulously by the current owner.

Amazon Resort Island is considered an important historical site. From 1940 to 1975, the island produced perfumes essences from rosewood to be exported to France and was known as Ilha da Usina (Factory Island). Due to its importance, France President Giscard d’Estaing paid a visit in 1975. Some aged scraps, engines and part of the machinery, as well as a 1944 Ford pickup are still visible all around the island.

From 1975 to 1984 the island entered a long rest and the vegetation quickly destroyed the factory. In 1985 the current owner started a travel agency in Rio de Janeiro and began to send clients to Manaus. The ancient house of the previous owner became a traditional base.

Mamori Lake is also noteworthy for sport fishing activities and peacock is the most important.

The weather conditions and wildlife make this island quite unique. The Amazon is divided into two specific periods: the dry season starting from the beginning of June up to the beginning of December and the rainy season for the rest of the year. Rainy season does not mean it rains everyday but definitely more extensively. During this period, water levels rise whereas they are lower during the dry season.

Mosquitoes literally disappear during the rainy season and appear when waters start climbing. Low waters and mosquitoes benefit large sport fishing activities. Fishermen arrive from all over Brazil and the United States, regardless of the mosquitoes.

Unique to the Island

Next to the island with an extension of a few ten thousands of hectares, an Indian Reserve recently opened. The reserve is on a big area with a very limited population of about 30 families that earn their living from fishing (they sell also to the current island owners), some cattle and the vegetables which they plant in limited areas. This community is very peaceful and consists of super friendly people who, since the very beginning, have shown their pleasure to offer their support for anything one might need.

Structures on the Island

The main structure consists of 2 sections divided by a comfortable veranda with continuous breeze flowing through it during the day. The first section consists of a large sitting room, the owner's bedroom with private bathroom, the maid's bedroom with private bath, and a small and practical coin laundry area in the center. The second section is a brick house with 4 suite bedrooms all with their own private bath.

There is also a wooden house consisting of 2 suite bedrooms with a private bath. The advantage of this house is its wooden structure that the current owners have kept intact due to the high quality of the material which is practically indestructible.

An independent structure contains a kitchen – restaurant – 1 bath for guests and a coin laundry facility with annexed bathroom for the employees. The owner is in the process of starting construction to build a larger laundry facility next to the kitchen.

The back of the island is dedicated to simpler wood and straw structures which can be reached by a pathway leading to them, which is where the generator is found. A project is under way to build a pathway all around the island for ecological viewing.

At the front of the island, a wooden deck is located to receive boats and guests. Just recently the owner decided to cover this area with a straw domed structure. Covering and protecting the area means there will be a multiple purpose space, such as a meeting point for sunsets, breakfast, bar, etc.

There is also a swimming pool on the premises with the dimensions of 12x4 meters.

There are 30 meters of antenna providing both internet and telephone signals.

Along the pathway there is a house lodging the 52 HP MWM generator providing 35 KW, which is more than enough for air conditioning, lights, refrigerators, freezer and kitchen. There is an independent emergency circuit which eliminates the use of the generator although it is limited to lights.

An 80-meter deep well is connected to a 5000 liter tank with an electric pump. There are 4 sewage systems, a certified electric system, two warehouses and two 7 meter aluminum boats fitted with 2 x 15HP and 1 x 30 HP outboard motors.

Area

Approximately 11 hectares is officially registered under INCRA, 3 of which are IBAMA and IPAAM protected forest. This is the total registered area though it may reduce to 4 hectares during the lowest water levels which last a few weeks only. The same period shows some attachment to the firm land from the back of the island.

Finally, the current owner is passionate about the island and is willing to educate the future owner from his experience with respect to all aspects of the island including such things as important contacts, maintenance, boats, natives, employees and suggested purchases.
