Knini Paati River Resort

Lodge in Upper Suriname River

Unique in being the only top-end jungle lodge run by Maroon management, Knini Paati underwent a total renovation in 2017 and is now looking very fine indeed. Each of the six lovely light-bathed cabins here can sleep up to five people, and come with traditional wooden furnishings. There's a terrific restaurant and bar with great river views too.

A 3-day/2-night package to the resort includes lodging, meals, excursions and transportation.

The resort also runs a jungle camp, a sweaty but enjoyable 2-hour hike through the rainforest, where guests stay in far more rustic surroundings, sleep in hammocks, wash in the river and cook their own food.
