Recommended Places to Stay in Rodrigues Island

Places to stay in Rodrigues Island

Not until the 15th-century ambitious Moorish navigators first discovered this tiny paradise called Rodrigues Island-one of the three Mascarene Islands located in the south-western part of the Indian Ocean. Rodrigues is the oldest and smallest (108 km2) among the Mascarene islands. 

Even though Rodrigues shares the same Creole language and the same flag as with its sister island Mauritius, yet it has its own particular trait. It has a distinct geological landscape, a down-to-earth population, and a rich cultural heritage.

By visiting this island, you will instantly see the beauty in its wilderness. Unlike any ‘typical island destinations’, where you would expect some long chain of hotels, Rodrigues is rather secluded, and untouched by commercialism. 

Here you will witness the sheer beauty of the pale blue sea horizon, the rugged hilly landscapes, the golden bats, and the gorgeous seabirds soaring in the sky. 

This section provides you with a list of handpicked accommodation available across the island. The list is based on factors like customer reviews, location, service quality, and popularity.

Accommodation is categorized into three sections, notably: the eco-lodges & guesthouses, hotels, and villa & bungalow. The eco-lodges and guesthouses vary from rustic, contemporary chic to luxurious style. Whilst the hotels offer a comprehensive accommodation with a list of activities to do. The villa and bungalow section suggests a luxurious stay in a totally intimate environment.

Note: It does get pricey during the high seasons (November-January; March; July-August).
