The resort is located about 45 minutes from the Capital of Paramaribo (trip by taxi and by small boat). The resorts is located on the grounds of a former plantation and offers modern cabana's with air-conditioning, a private shower and lavatory, hot and cold water, a mini fridge and wifi. Breakfast is included in the rate. The staff is friendly and the restaurant offers a nice range of snacks, lunch and dinner items. The food was very good and reasonably priced. The menu items vary from local favorites to international dishes (like pasta and salads). The pool area is beautiful and very spacious. Pool towels were quickly offered and so were drinks and snacks by the pool. The cocktail list was nice and the bar was happy to make custom cocktails as well. The colonial atmosphere and the rich history make the resort unique and worth the visit. Many tours are available from turtle watching, dolphin spotting to bike tours to nearby villages/ plantations. Sunsets are beautiful to enjoy on the private pier/ deck on the Commewijne river.
AL dough I grew up in Surinam and know it's history, it was good hear the history of Frederiksdorp. The plantation is beautifully renovated. We had a tour with a guide. He showed us the beautiful renovated plantation houses witch you can rent if you want to stay there. They also have nice cabana's for 2-4 persons. The pool is beautiful and has a bar on the side. The restaurant serves local dishes. The staff was very friendly, they make you feel very welcome.
Beautifully renovated plantation (almost finished) with lodging and all inclusive staying. Separate houses with comfort. We stayed at the pool with friends and enjoyed the friendly staff. Quick service, also for the dinner we ordered.
I heard that as of soon there will be BBQ in the weekend too.
We, adults and kids, loved it all.
Like others, I just visited this site for lunch as part of a tour. The lunch was served "family-style" and was varied and tasty. There is a lot of work going on to add a swimming pool and more basic but nice cabins, which are modern additions to the rooms in the historic buildings. You really get the feel of being on a plantation that was created from swampland by digging canals to manage the water -- but the smell of the stagnant water isn't the most pleasant. The vibe is nice -- a place you could spend plenty of time in your hammock between boat and bicycle rides. It's a truly unique place, and I hope the business succeeds!
