We've had a wonderful stay at Danpaati with the romantic package arrangement. There are no words to describe how beautiful the location is, how friendly and warm the staff is and how valuable our time has been here. Thank you, Danpaati! Highly recommend for a wonderful romantic getaway

After looking back at my photos from november '16 and reminiscing about the beautiful experience I had at Danpaati river lodge I decided to write this review. As you've been able to read in the other reviews it takes quite a while to arrive at the lodge, but what a wonderful journey it is. This remote location provides with pristine...

I traveled to Danpaati River Lodge with my husband and friend on January 1, 2017. We spent New Year's Eve in Paramaribo. Being New Yorkers, we were delighted with the vast cultural melting pot that exists in Paramaribo. It was a hopeful sight to behold a Mosque sitting peacefully right next door to a Synagogue. With all the terrible things...

The welcoming environment at Danpaati had me saying, "This is just like summer camp for adults...", in all the right and nostalgic ways. First of all, Danpaati is positioned beautifully-past many of the popular river resorts on the upper Suriname river. It's a cozy little island, but by no means are you limited to this stretch of land. Excursions are...

We stayed here for three night and liked it very very much. It starts with the beautiful 2,5 hours boat trip to the lodge and the cheering reception. We had one of the lodges overlooking the river and from this lodges you can see the daily traffic on the river (several boats with school children who are going to school...

Accomodation: very basic huts hastily made (we had the deluxe version, which is not the one pictured on the website which fools you to think it is). Resort: well planned, but as on very little island there is nowhere to go (feels a bit restricted as such). Not so quite either as river can be very busy with propelled boats...

The trip of 6 hours from Paramaribo to Danpaati River Lodge is worth it. Not just for the splendid nature and view on the river from your river lodge, but most of all because of the marvelous staff and management! Top service and excellent cooking! And not to forget the morning tea and coffee service at your doorstep. Thanks for...

Everything is so nice, a lovely 3 hour boattrip, the warm welcome, lovely people, and our new big lodge with hammocks and a stunning view over the river. Time to relax, swim, eat and if you want a visit to the village or a junglewalk.

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,...

During our 4 days visit to this river lodge we were pleasantly surprised by the warm welcome of the staff. We stayed in a large family guest house near the central "lobby". The meals were well-prepared. The shared tables supported making contact with other guests. (although sitting appart with your family is also possible). Trips to the sulla (rapids in...
