Suriname Lodges – Danpaati

Danpaati River Lodge, Suriname

Danpaati River Lodge

Tranquility and natural beauty abound on this remote island in the jungle

Danpaati carefully manages its natural resources and works in close partnership with the Maroon communities of Dang to preserve the local way of life

The Danpaati River Lodge is an exceptionally remote and tranquil oasis in the heart of nature, welcoming adventurous visitors in search of an escape from modern stresses and distractions. The lodge features a welcoming and breezy lounge facing the river, a large pool surrounded by a hardwood yoga deck, and easy access to one of the few portions of the Surinam River where it is actually safe to swim. Accommodations are in spacious A-frame style cabins with carefully appointed amenites including fresh coffee service in the mornings, mosquito nets, and unbeatable views into the thick, surrounding nature.

Getting Here

Danpaati River lodge is situated on an island in the Upper-Suriname River 200 km south of the capital city, Paramaribo. The Island can be reached by road & boat, requiring three hours by vehicle and at least another three hours on the water. More convenient are flights that depart the Zorg en Hoop Aerodrome in Paramaribo for the one hour journey to the airstrip at Botopasi where visitors are met for a 10-20 minute boat ride to the island. Chartered helicopters can land directly on the island.

It takes a while to get here but oh, it’s so worth it! Beautifull location on a island in the Surinam River. No wifi, loved it! And no warm water but who cares. The cold water is still warm enough. Electricity is on in the evening. Dinner is served in buffet style and although there is not really a choice, it’s al good. Breakfast is also good, fresh bread rolls, cheese and salami and nutella and peanut butter. The cabans are quite basic but with a veranda and an amazing view. In the morning they bring you warm water to make tea or coffee. You will sit on your veranda with a nice cup of coffee and look over the river. You can hear the nature waking up. The staff is very very friendly and since a month they are even raising an orphaned pig named Kira. She likes to be scratched on her belly 🙂

I have been to Suriname before, but wanted to stay in a property tthat had access to some of the remote communities along the Suriname RIver. The Dan Paati resort not only offers this, but is also linked closely to community development projects in the small Maroon community of Dan on the far side of the river. The property is just fine; a three/half star resort, offering comfortable, en-suite cabins, a convivial meeting centre and dining room, a pool, river access for swimming, jungle activities and above all, the opportunity to find real peace. It is not (thank heavens) a resort that tries to cater to the whims of everyone; it is a resort that offers itself, and the atmosphere and philosophy that it works to to every visitor.
