Eco accommodation in Rodrigues
Rodrigues is ideal for the sustainable traveller, with a range of tourist accommodation that are in harmony with the natural surroundings, leaning towards the rustic rather than opulence. The most luxurious hotel you will find in Rodrigues is 4 star rated, but regardless of ratings, you will find most accommodation provides good quality services and amenities while still respecting the environment.
The landscape of Rodrigues is such that you can find accommodation in the heart of nature almost anywhere on the island. Nearly all accommodation on the island would qualify as sustainable, either through energy-saving practices or use of sustainable materials in furnishings or building materials, and you will find locally sourced fresh produce served almost everywhere.
Rodrigues offers the option of coastal accommodation which are secluded and nestled in tropical gardens, as well as inland accommodation sheltered in mountainous regions that still afford views of the ocean. Hotels by the beach offer the opportunity to enjoy the restful and rejuvenating air of being by the sea. Smaller hotels based in coastal villages offer an authentic Rodriguan welcome with the hilly landscape as a backdrop and ocean views, as well as traditional exotic cuisine made from locally sourced ingredients. There are also a number of lodges on the island, including eco-lodges situated in the heart of the lush natural environment that provide high quality facilities and a great base from which to enjoy an eco-adventure.

If you choose a high-end hotel in Rodrigues you can be sure that all your needs will be tended to. However to avoid the likelihood of staying within the resort and not experiencing the island’s genuine warmth and hospitality why not choose an alternative accommodation type? A small rustic hotel by the beach, or a lodge or eco-tent in the heart of nature will help you make a real connection with the Rodriguan environment and culture.
Staying in non-hotel accommodation also allows you the opportunity to structure your holiday according to your own timetable. You can select sustainable activities that interest you, like going trekking along the spectacular rugged coastline at a time that suits you or spend a whole day at an attraction like the François Leguat Giant Tortoise and Cave Reserve instead of being restricted to a schedule.
If you stay in self-catered accommodation you can venture out to sample local cuisine in a restaurant and try dishes like octopus curry or honey glazed pork, and by the beach you may also come across people selling freshly caught fish that is fried in right in front of you. You can also visit the local markets and buy local produce to cook, try your hand at making stewed pumpkin or calabash or a nice stir fry with the plentiful leafy greens. Staying in non-hotel accommodation can certainly create special memories you may otherwise miss out on!
