We stayed in lagoon suite 6, which has sea views from the verandah and from the bed, and views out to the hills from the window next to the bed. What luxury! The villa also has great views, but from what we could see the family suites do not have direct sea views. We loved our room - huge, airy,... More

Ideally located with fantastic see view on the lagoon, this minimalist eco lodge is the place to be if you look for tranquility and total relaxation. Do not expect a wifi and a TV in the room, which for us was a real plus. Wifi available at the bar only. Nicely sophisticated and still looking like a very simple place... More

Too expensive for what you get in our opinion. Very nice reduced interior indeed but don´t expect a sea view as shown on the pictures online from the `family suite´ (ours was No.4), it´s mostly hidden by another hut. Details of woven leaves and framed photos give a local touch to it. Very cosy inside even if it´s rainy and... More

My husband and I are from South Africa and we opted for a unique honeymoon destination - Rodrigues was perfect for us - not crazy busy and even a bit of an adventure moon while still very relaxing with delicious cocktails. Bakwa lodge was our second accommodation venue on the island. The rooms had everything and were very comfortable. We... More

We used to spend some time in Mauritius, within large luxury hotels. Rodrigues is certainly not the place to look for palaces, as the Island has remained authentic. So high level accommodation are essentially quality lodges as this one, which we very much liked. We stayed half board in a large villa, 7 of us, with fantastic view on the... More

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
