The beds in the rooms are excellent; the food is fantastic; staff always very friendly and of course, the beach is just down the hill so we can pump our kites and jump in the water. Highly recommended for those who want the simple but nice things when going to Rodrigues.

Simply stunning. We stayed in the villa at the Bakwa Lodge in April for 5 nights. It's the best location, the best beach, the best environement you can dream of. The place is simple but elegant and stylish. Food is great (set menu). The team is extremely nice and friendly whilst keeping the typical cool-easy going attitude of Rodrigues. We... More

We spent 9 days at this beautiful place. This is luxury how we like it; simple and refined. There are 8 rooms including the villa. The rooms are large and include a bedroom with a double bed, with a separate living area with 2 single beds in the living area which could double as beds for kids. As we have... More

I've stayed at Bakwa for 4 nights for the New Year in the family suite and what I can say about this hotel is that it looks like paradise! It is rustic and eco-friendly with a breathtaking scenery! The dinner menu was of very high quality! Even if there is no pool, the large beach in front of the hotel... More

I spend 10 days in this beautiful place as part of a kitesurfing Trip after being in Mauritius for 5 days. I was supposed to go back to Mauritius after 5 days but decided to extend my stay and forget about Mauritius. Rodrigues' Lagoon is one of the best place I have been kitesurfing so far, huge lagoon and only... More

I have visited a few islands but I must say that Rodrigues Island is now my winner :-) If you're looking calm, no commerce, very few tourists, the beautiful sea, beautiful nature and friendly people, you found the right place. Bakwa Lodge is a wonderful, very precise and well designed hotel with 8 rooms. Rooms are very nice, practical (outdoor... More

This luxury lodge has managed to design a place that co-exists with its authentic natural surroundings. Rather than tear down nature, it built around it and leveraged its natural beauty - starting from its namesake - the Bakwa Tree, which you can find throughout the property. And I've never seen such pride in how the staff cooks, presents and maintains... More

My husband and I and our 18 month old daughter spent a week at Bakwa Lodge in September and absolutely loved it. The rooms, food, location and staff were all fantastic. The lodge has been designed beautifully and has a very homely and friendly atmosphere. Geraldine (the manager) did a brilliant job of looking after everyone and couldn't have been... More
