Our villa is east facing, offers independent and intimate accommodation. It features large beds with superior cotton linens and anti-mosquito devices, bathrooms with amenities, and tea/coffee making facilities.

Combining the charm of easy veranda-living with simple island style adapted to Rodrigues, the villa offers the choice of privacy and tranquility – a unique atmosphere for you to get away, rest and rediscover everyday essentials.

The space
Built in a garden of endemic trees and shrubs that take many years to grow, Koraya Lodge shows its back to ancient quarries of calcarenite, while gazing at a panoramic view of the lagoon and its numerous islets.

The lagoon is a stone cast away. Even though you can swim in it, there is no sandy beach in front of the Lodge. This is because the lodge is located on a calcarenite plateau marked by astonishing sandstones formed by the consolidation of limestone sand.

Where you’ll be

Petite Butte, Rodrigues, Mauritius

Rodrigues is a relatively tiny island. Often referred to as "Mauritius 50 years ago", the island has little resemblance to its neighbour apart from the scenic strips of peach-colored sand.

The scenery on Rodrigues is a dramatic combination of mountains, valleys, lagoons and cave systems. Koraya Lodge´s neighbourhood reveals playful rock formations and cave systems. You can go hiking along the dramatic limestone coast and plateau, enjoying majestic panoramic view of the lagoon with its many islands. We hope you enjoy fishing, windsurfing, kiting or diving among intricate coral reefs. Rodrigues is a great spot for these activities.

The lodge is located a few meters from the lagoon, built at the end of a an unusual limestone plateau. The later implies that there is no typical sandy beach in from the lodge though you will be able to access the turquoise lagoon with sandy seabed, and swim to the tides.

Our garden is planted with several of the island's rarest endemic trees and shrubs. At the lodge, we believe it is our duty to protect local endemic trees. Depending on the season you stay at the lodge, you may have the opportunity to plant one endemic shrub on the property. On request and if available, you may purchase and pick local fruits like orange, lime, papaya and vegetables from Koraya's garden.

During your stay

I am in Rodrigues a few months a year and do socialise with my guests. When I am not there, there is always a co-host living at the property, who will welcome you and ensure that you have a pleasant stay with us.
