Nestled along the rustic southeastern coastline, Koraya Lodge promises a change of scenery for travelers to this Indian Ocean island. The charming B&B – located at Petite Butte on the island of Rodrigues – is set on a vast coral plateau, surrounded by the azure lagoon and an array of endemic and tropical plants. Secluded from tourists and everyday life, the lodge is a 15-minute drive from Plaine Corail Airport.
Two self-catering bungalows are designed in hardwood and concrete, evoking traditional Creole style houses with their shutters and roofs painted an intense blue that echoes the hues of the nearby lagoon. The wooden veranda, and rattan and wicker furnishings are ubiquitous of the decoration, creating a symbiosis with the biodiversity of the region.
You will have the pleasure of witnessing the slow-paced island lifestyle from your room’s front terrace: early morning scenes of octopus fishermen – and women; the comings and goings of charming pirogues dancing on the tides, interspersed with windsurfers and kiters – a favourite sport of locals and itinerant visitors alike; and children scattering about on the shore searching for treasures of the sea. More than just a place to stay, Koraya Lodge offers an authentic and unforgettable experience for true island adventures.
At Koraya Lodge the colours of the lodgings have been chosen with care. Greens, browns, and blues dominate the decor on a background of white, recalling the vegetation and seascape of the surroundings.
Each of the 2 Bungalows of 59 m2 have two bedrooms: one on the ground floor with double bed, shower and toilet; as well as a comfortable double bed installed on the mezzanine above, accessible by climbing the wooden staircase. There is a common room on the lower level, featuring kitchen, dining area and lounge space, and opening onto the veranda with views overlooking the lagoon.
Capacity: 4 persons
Koraya Lodge is self-catering and groceries may be purchase in the village of La Ferme, a 10-minutes drive from the Lodge, or in the capital city, Port Mathurin.
