DISCOVERY

Bakwa Lodge is set along a shore of opaline waters. It lies secluded in a magnificent seascape, home to a rural backdrop, sloping gently to unspoilt beaches, undisturbed but for occasional footprints.

This charming lodge blends comfortably into a vegetation flanked by local vacoas trees emerging from savannah like plains. This beachfront has direct beach access; one casually meanders down to the beach finding shelter from sun and rain under the filao trees bordering the lagoon whilst occasionally witnessing rural life go by as goats and cows are herded along the beach. Perfectly blended in its surroundings, the lodge has been developed with the environment at heart and has its own water collecting and recycling plant.

Bakwa Lodge comprises of 6 suites & a large beachfront villa. The villa offers accommodation for two couples with 4 additional beds nested in the mezzanine enabling accommodation for family fun. Spacious, light filled interiors feature concrete floors, louver shutters and marine decks that create an island ambience. All spacious suites feature large beds with superior cotton linens, mini bar, en–suite bathrooms and outdoor showers along with daily housekeeping, laundry service is also available. Although all rooms are equipped with air conditioners, one will probably choose to sleep with the caress of the ocean breeze through the shutters.

Rooms are tastefully decorated with Rodrigan artefacts and remnants of broken discarded fishing boats, creating a unique atmosphere of understated and comfortable luxury. The light and airy, beach-house styled restaurant and bar has a friendly and relaxed atmosphere, it's the perfect place for a romantic candle lit dinner or to chat with lodge staff and other guests. A combination of Rodriguan delicacies and European fares will captivate your senses, indulge in fresh local fares of fish, octopus, free range chicken, delicious pork & crayfish barbeques all delicately flavoured with local herbs and spices, the chef is happy to accommodate any specific dietary requirements.

This location is world renowned for kite and wind surfing, here kite surfers & windsurfers from around the globe have private beach access to launch in front of the lodge and race along off-shore reefs, the best months for this activity are from June to October. For those with an adventurous spirit, Rodrigues is an island that can be discovered on foot, coastal or inland, awakening you to rural ways of life where time stands still.
