“Relaxed, warm, comfortable, quiet, clean: paradise”
Reviewed 3 March 2014

My partner from Guyana and me from The Netherlands always meet here. This was the sixth time in two years. We have never considered to go elsewhere because of the qualities as mentioned in the title but also since John and Lloyd have created a very cosy paradise just outside of Paramaribo's centre. We always bike through the forest, even pick fruits or vegetables there.
The resort is a paradise, because of the quality of the apartments, both in equipment and design. One can always ask for extra kitchen utensils, for books, board games, dvd's, for a rental, but it is also possible to get all meals, snacks and drinks served or to get a taxi service to/from the airport. The rates are very reasonable.
And don't forget this is Suriname: in this resort everything always works, because the owners and their staff maintain the place in perfect shape. The place is swept every day, the pool and jacuzzi are kept really clean.
Why do you think we always come back here?! Next Eastern we will go again!

Room Tip: All rooms are good because they all have the same design and equipment. Just consider how many beds...

We've really enjoyed our stay there. Warm colors and warm welcome. Friendly people. Clean and comfortable rooms and beds. Nice pool and spa in a beautiful garden.
If you are looking for a small haven of tranquillity not too far from the centrum pf Paramaribo, go there, you won' t regret it !

John and Lloyd gave me a warm welcome, and helped with tour and transport arrangements.

The accommodation is excellent - spacious, clean and high quality. The garden and pool are a haven of tranquillity - perfect for enjoying an early morning coffee or a beer in the evening.

The location is ideal - away from the noise of the city centre, in a quiet and safe residential neighbourhood. It is only a 20 minute walk in, and it is interesting to walk through a 'real' area of the city rather than just the centre. You could, of course, take a taxi.

Supermarkets are located nearby to buy food to cook in the well equipped kitchen. Breakfast and other meals can be arranged.

You can see squirrel monkeys, parrots and many other birds in the paths outside the resort - perfect for anyone with an interest in wildlife watching.

I can't recommend this place highly enough, and hope to return for another visit.

Relaxed small resort with friendly people, good apartments and of course the swimming pool. If you don't want to stay in the busy hart of Paramaribo, but not too far from it, go to Kekemba Resort. Value for money.

It is to be said that the Kekemba offers the best beds we had since months. Even better then the one we have at home. The couple running the place is easy going and take good care off you. With the swimming pool, an big common patio we also enjoyed days at home when we didnt go out to discover Suriname.
Thanks Lloyd and John, we had a good time!
