Typically we do not like to go back to previous destinations as places tend to change and not always for the better. A prejudice so untrue for Auriga Ecolodge !! After we were one of the first guests in 2010 to this place, we returned in February only to be delighted again. This is the place to stay if you... More

My wife and I stayed at the Auriga Ecolodge over the 2014/2015 New Year to celebrate our honeymoon. We were able to view the fireworks launched from along the coast from atop the Ecolodge's third-story stargazing post. Truly an incredible view at night with the stars and a 360-deg view around the island! The owner, Hans, is very welcoming and... More

We stayed 8 nights in May in this spacious, comfortable place, away from the sea but close to iguanas and birds. Friendly Hans and his animal family (3 pigs, 4 dogs) were very good companions. Our mornings started with coffee and climbing onto the roof platform to count iguanas and watch the birds. The outdoor shower was fantastic after a... More

Ecolodge is a wonderful place for people who are looking for a different experience and who love nature. The lodge is a spacious, romantic dwelling with lots of lovely corners (incl. a hammock) to relax. Two dining areas (inside on the ground floor, and open air on the top floor), two showers (one in the bathroom, one outdoors), two bedrooms... More

My husband and I truly enjoyed Auriga Ecolodge. Fabulous privacy and quiet about 15 minutes from town in the 'bush'. We had the place to ourselves, with Hans on call with the ringing of a bell if needed. We awoke to the rich sounds of birds each morning and enjoyed the sunsets on the viewing platform. The housing is simple... More

In the private grounds of the lodge we had a 2-story former stables to ourselves. At breakfast, we could watch the hummingbirds, afterwards we would feed the pigs and have a stroll through the grounds watching birds, butterflies and iguanas in the cactuses. As the lodge is located close to Kralendijk, all the diving/snorkling spots and the National park are... More

When you're looking for a place to stay at Bonaire, look no further and book Auriga Ecolodge. The owner Hans (re)build the lodge (which was formerly a horse stable) with his own hands and he's deservedly proud of the result. Expect a big wooden house with a nice and fully equipped kitchen, two showers (one outdoor shower!), two bedrooms, plenty... More

Auriga Ecolodge is the perfect destination when you're looking for a place in the middle of nature. The area around the lodge is planted with typical Bonairean trees and bushes. A real green zone! There's chickens, a greenhouse and a BBQ place. And there are loads of other cool plans in the making! The lodge itself is spacious, colourful and... More

Only a small drive away from the bustle of the town and water front, driving through the cacti bushes, we found ourselves in a little oasis, where at the same time as feeling connected to nature in an open space, we had all the privacy as well. Highlights for us were the warm and friendly design that made us feel... More

The Auriga Ecolodge is an ideal place to experience Bonaire’s back country known as the kunuku. The 15-minute drive on dirt roads is well worth the effort for it delivers you to a Mecca of island nature. Owners Hans and Jenny have created an oasis for native plants and animals. I especially enjoyed my time on the stargazer platform that... More
