There is no electricity distribution network where we are located. It means that we do not have power 24 hours per day.
The AJL has two power generators groups (55 kVA each) that operate alternately and a smaller emergency generator (12 kVA).
We provide power daily from 8 a.m. until noon and from 5.30 p.m. until 11.30pm, from May to mid-December.
During the hottest months of the year, mid-December to April, the generators left on from 6 p.m. until 10 a.m. the following day, so that air conditioners in the rooms, may be used throughout the night.
Spite of the constant attention we pay to generators maintenance, unexpected problems may occur in our power system. In the case of a great technical difficulty that cannot be solved by the AJL staff, specialized technicians will be called immediately. Due to our remote location, these technicians have up to 36 hours to arrive at the Lodge to do the repairs. Since we opened in 2011, we never had any situation of this kind.
We offer free Wi-Fi in the common areas of the Lodge, from 8 a.m. until midnight. There is no Wi-Fi available in the rooms or after midnight.
Our Internet connection is 3G. Speed ranges from 0.8 Mbps to 3Mbps depending the time of the day or the weather conditions, what is satisfactory for a normal use.
We kindly ask you do not make big downloads or use services like Netflix, because it will affect the network speed, and all other guests.
Meals and Drinks
We offer exclusive bar and “à la carte” restaurant services for our guests.
At the moment, the only option to eat in the vicinity of the lodge is a floating restaurant called "Marola" in Pouso beach. Marola is open from Tuesday to Sunday, from noon to 5pm.
Transport from and to Vila do Abraão, the main town in the island
During daylight, there is many options and prices to reach Vila do Abraão and we are pleased to explain that, when you get here.
We receive many enquires of guests asking about transport to have dinner in Vila do Abraão, or just to hang out there at night. Although it is possible, please note that this transport service at night, costs up to R$ 400 (round trip) and can be canceled due to weather conditions. We had once a couple of guests who need to sleep in Vila do Abraão and come back next day morning due to a strong and unexpected summer storm.
We are pleased to arrange water taxis, check the weather forecast for you, give options to make this more affordable, but we understand that stay in Atlantica is a complete different experience than stay in Abraão, and the night here in the jungle, is one of the main part of this experience.
Therefore, if you are the kind of person that the calmness of nature by night may annoy you, you might consider stay in Vila do Abraão.
Shared boat tours depart only from Vila do Abraão. We are pleased to explain and book tours for you.
Because of the schedule of the trips, you will have the extra cost of need private taxi boat service, to arrive and come back from Abraão.
We also can book private boat tours that can pick you up and drop you off in the lodge.
Money and Payments
We accept as form of payments credit cards (Visa, Mastercard and Dinners) and cash.
Many places in Abraão accept credit cards as form of payment but remember that there is no ATM machines in the island. Bring cash to avoid problems or extra fees in some services like boat tours.
What to bring?
Water proof jacket (for windy boat transfers and rainning days)
