Discover the brand new Akira Overwater Resort in Bigi Pan, Suriname's most recent pearl. This unique resort with 16 detached lodges, a cozy restaurant and an attractive lobby is built entirely on the water. The lodges and main building are connected by wooden walkways, making the resort look like a 'tilapia', a common fish in Bigi Pan, from the air. This area, with an area of 68,000 hectares of land and water, includes swamps, mangrove forests and lagoons. For bird watchers, Bigi Pan is a true paradise, with no fewer than 72 permanent bird species, including the majestic Scarlet Ibis. Every year, about 50 bird species from North America migrate to this area, such as the osprey and several species of terns.
