Danpaati River Lodge is a delightful property with wooden cabins set on the shores of a remote island on the Amazonian Suriname river.

Danpaati River Lodge is set in an exceptionally remote and tranquil spot on an island in the Suriname river, fringed by Amazonian rainforest. Located close to the Maroon village of Dan, famed for its unique culture where African traditions and rituals have been preserved, the lodge is deeply integrated into the local community, and coordinates projects with 12 villages in the vicinity, including a media centre for children. The lodge welcomes visitors offering accommodation for couples, families and groups in a variety of spacious A-frame wooden cabins on the waterfront, with amenities including mosquito nets, fresh coffee served in the mornings and unbeatable views from hammocks set on the verandah. There’s a breezy lounge facing the river and a large outdoor pool surrounded by a hardwood yoga deck, with access to one of the few areas of the Suriname river where it is safe to swim.
