The island of Rodrigues leaves an indelible impression on visitors. It has another worldly feel to it and has managed to retain a life-style of earlier, less hectic times.
Tekoma is an invitation to be carried away by the scenery around the hotel, its fine sandy beach, the elegance of its Creole architecture, the little paths near the hotel which lead to Trou d’Argent, the island’s unspoilt beauty and the kindness of its inhabitants.
Tekoma Boutik Hotel is located on the stunning beach of Anse Ally with the Indian Ocean as a horizon. Far from other dwellings, its 32 individual seaview rooms overlook the scenery of Saint-François Bay. This is perhaps where time has followed the French poet Lamartine’s injunction, “Oh Time, suspend your flight ! ”
In the middle of an endemic garden and facing a pristine beach, the 32 rooms with sea view, built in individual units, give the visitor the impression of owning his own little Creole-style villa. The rooms are organised in 3 categories, Standard, Superior & Beachfront.
The individual rooms provide more tranquility and privacy with the added bonus of a breathtaking view of the surrounding elements. The open-air bathtub will delight those who want to take advantage, during a bath, of the calm evenings of Rodrigues while looking at the stars of the south hemisphere sky.
“I open my eyes and I see the ocean. It is the ocean as I have never seen it before. Free, wild, dizzyingly blue.”
Above is a quote from “Le Chercheur d’Or”, a novel written by French-Mauritian Nobel laureate writer J. M. G. Le Clézio. It illustrates perfectly the breathtaking views that can be admired from Tekoma’s main restaurant & bar. A spectacular panorama of the Indian Ocean and of the Saint-François canal which meanders the immense blue lagoon.
The excellent table of the Rodriguan chef Duvergé Agathe, gifted in the art of combining traditional cuisine with fresh local products, will excite the taste buds. We invite you to discover its already iconic dishes such as the green papaya salad with watercress and salted fish, or the noodles with crab and kaffir lime.
And make sure to discover our Gin Bar with carefully selected spirits & mixers from the Indian Ocean area.
Tekoma’s guest experience can be defined as “Barefoot Luxury”. It is an invitation to simplicity, relaxation and cocooning in an exceptional setting. This boutique hotel offers a level of comfort and high quality service while keeping this connection to the life and rhythm of the island.
The Spa at Tekoma is open everyday and offers a wide range of treatments using mainly natural & local products. Massages, manicures & pedicures, body scrubs, to be enjoyed alone or with your loved one in our double cabin.
Don’t forget that our direct bookers benefit from discounted rates on selected spa treatments.
Tekoma has reopened with a more eco-responsible operation. Among many other things, no more single-use plastic, almost exclusively local products used in the kitchen, the water produced by desalination is recycled for watering, and great novelty: the launch of “One Booking, One Tree Planted” in partnership with the François Leguat reserve.
The hotel therefore contributes to the plantation of an endemic species with each reservation, and as a bonus, customers benefit from a 25% reduction on their entry to the reserve.
“Marooned 600km north-east of Mauritius, and close to no other landform, Rodrigues is a world unto itself. It is also one of the world’s most remote inhabited islands.”
