              beach, size of room and decor of room

              Sited at a beautiful area, Bakwa has a wonderful, private and remote feel. The rooms are well-designed and well-decorated. The food is good but not great. The reason I would not give this property four stars is that it lacks attention to detail. For example, there are no chairs or lounges on the beach. (It seemed that most guests visited a neighboring hotel to use its lounges.) There are no paddleboards or kayaks available for guests to use. The rooms should be equipped with clotheslines for drying wet bathing suits and the soap should be refreshed regularly. Rooms 4 and 5 are suitable for families but have a view of the house in front - despite being billed as partial sea view rooms. It is a lovely place but somewhat "bare bones".

              tranquility; big smiles; great cuisine

              Rodrigues island and Bakwa Lodge are very special places, which you will find hardly anywhere else on earth. Sensitively placed and managed in harmony with it's surroundings, Bakwa Lodge is perfectly placed for relaxing, walking, snorkelling or even taking the bus to all areas of Rodrigues (you cannot get lost - there is always a generous Rodriguan nearby to help you). If you like big hotels with all the bling then this is not for you; if you love exclusive boutique hotels where you are discreetly but attentively catered for on an ecological gem of an island, then make the effort and spend some downtime on Rodrigues and Bakwa Lodge.

              il respiro dell'oceano”

              la location, le camere spaziose, l'atmosfera

              Tutto sommato è andato abbastanza bene, salvo qualche giornata con la pioggia, ma il clima è cosa a parte. L'hotel è nuovo, ben messo, arredamento minimal ma con tutti i confort, l'unica pecca in questo caso è rappresentata dal materasso del letto, se era un po più morbido era meglio. Per gli iperconnessi, scordatevi internet, il wi-fi funziona solo nella lounge dell'hotel e va anche piano, nelle camere è completamente out. Non so se questo è voluto oppure no. Comunque godetevi l'atmosfera del posto, relax, mare, passeggiate, diving. L'hotel in generale da una sensazione di radical chic, ma ciò dipende dai punti di vista. La vera pecca dell'hotel a nostro avviso è la cucina, malgrado offra una buona carta dei vini e altre bevande, per quanto riguarda le pietanze è carente. La colazione ad esempio è sempre uguale ed un po' scarsa. Per il pranzo e la cena si guarda troppo alla presentazione e poco alla sostanza, il tutto poi si traduce in un senso di ripetitività. Per il resto tutto bene.
