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.”
The above quote from “Le Chercheur d’Or,” penned by French-Mauritian Nobel laureate J. M. G. Le Clézio, encapsulates the awe-inspiring views to be enjoyed from Tekoma’s main restaurant & bar. Feast your eyes on a magnificent panorama of the Indian Ocean and the winding Saint-François canal as it courses through the expansive blue lagoon.
Discover the rich tapestry of flavors that Tekoma’s kitchen brings to your table. Named “1528” to commemorate the year the island was discovered by Diogo Rodrigues, the restaurant aims to offer a gastronomic experience that pays tribute to both the island’s natural beauty and its storied past. Skilled in the craft of fusing traditional recipes with fresh, locally-sourced ingredients, our culinary team offers you the best of Rodriguan gastronomy. Signature dishes to explore include the green papaya salad adorned with watercress and salted fish, as well as noodles paired with crab and a hint of kaffir lime.
Enhance your dining experience further by visiting our Gin Bar, where you can indulge in an exquisite selection of spirits and mixers from the Indian Ocean region.
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.”
