Afobaka Resort lies in the heart of the district of Brokopondo, a stone’s throw from the Van Blommensteinmeer, a huge man-made lake. Designed as a reservoir and a source of hydroelectricity, the lake’s transformation into a beauty spot is characteristic of Suriname, where nature rules and development must accommodate it. The resort is on the left bank of the Suriname river.
In this verdant area of hills and trees sit seven special lodges/holiday homes benefiting from every imaginable luxury, without losing that “forest feel”. The enjoyment of nature is paramount at Afobaka Resort, whether you’re relaxing in the peaceful environment or enjoying the activities that are possible here. And all this in the utmost comfort and with the best service.
