General info

    Knini Paati River Resort is a resort located in the district of Sipaliwini and is 200 km away from Paramaribo. That is a three-hour drive and an hour boat ride from the capital. It is an island that consists of two parts and it is located in the middle of the Ferulasi Sula. The manager and host of the resort is Nelson Tiapoe. He is a direct descendant of the enslaved who fled from the plantation and founded the village of Knini at this location. At the beginning of 2017, the entire resort was renovated and transformed into the luxury relaxation resort that it is today. It is currently the only resort in the more luxurious segment that is entirely in the hands of locals. In this beautiful resort with its comfortable lodges you can enjoy flora and fauna, experience the local culture or relax in the cooling rapids. The resort also has a jungle camp on the mainland and about two and a half hour walk, where guests can spend the night in a traditional way.
    Sleep in a hammock, bathe in the river, cook on a homemade wood fire after enjoying the air-conditioned lodge and the swimming pool. Knini Paati River Resort is a place of relaxation where the beauty of contrasts comes together!Respect for nature and culture are important aspects within the operation of the resort.
    That is why solar panels are used to minimize the impact on the environment. All employees come from nearby villages to stimulate knowledge transfer and retention of this knowledge.
    Knini Paati River Resort works together with the Children of New Aurora foundation. Of every payment per guest, SRD 5 is donated to this foundation.

Selectie van getoonde tours

Misschien heeft u een trip gezien op internet die u interessant vindt maar niet in bovenstaande lijst staat. De bovenvermelde lijst met tours, trips en resorts is samengesteld naar aanleiding van ervaringen van onze resort-gasten en onze ervaringen met touroperators. U kunt bij ons wel informeren of wij deze tour voor u kunnen boeken.
- Met bepaalde touroperators doen wij geen zaken vanwege slechte uitvoeringen van tours, slechte (soms zelfs onbeschofte) gidsen of het niet netjes afhandelen van klachten over een misgelopen tour.
- Bepaalde tours gaan (bijna) nooit door omdat het minimum aantal deelnemers niet wordt gehaald; deze tours zult u ook niet hierboven aantreffen want niets is frustrerende dan weken op een lijst te staan om uiteindelijk te horen dat een tour niet doorgaat.
- Ook tours met een scheve prijs/prestatieverhouding (oftewel een te dure tour voor het aangebodene volgens onze resort-gasten) hebben wij niet opgenomen.


Misschien bent u een touroperator met een leuke trip, tour of binnenlands resort in uw assortment, maar u ziet uw aanbod niet in bovenlijst vermeld staan. Stuur ons een mail naar met daarin uw gegevens en wij zullen uw trip, tour of binnenlands resort in ons programma opnemen.
