Le Tekoma is a boutique hotel on the island of Rodrigues.  I had the pleasure of spending my birthday there. The staff speaks French, Creole as well as limited English, German, and Italian.  On Trip Advisor it has a 5-star rating and is ranked as the #1 hotel on the island. On Booking.com it maintains a 9.3/10 user rating.

Tekoma Boutik Hotel Rodrigues—the art of barefoot luxury. The resort is located one of the most beautiful beaches of the island, Tekoma provides a unique opportunity to explore the picturesque and authentic heart of Rodrigues. The complex is located on a beautiful hillside with breath-taking sea views. It offers unequaled standards of comfort and is an intimate and exclusive haven of peace. There is a restaurant (where local flavors are highlighted), a lounge space, a beach bar adjacent to the swimming pool, and a Seven Colour Wellness Centre.

Each of the 13 stand-alone cabanas measures 65 square meters.  The rooms are all equipped with a king size bed, facing a large window overlooking the bay. All the furniture is in solid teak. The natural shade of teak wood is enhanced by a slight lime washed look which is in line with the local rustic atmosphere. In contrast, the fabrics provide a subtle combination of turquoise and brown which warms up the whole atmosphere. All the rooms are also equipped with a couch, a mini bar, a safe and a 32′ flat screen. The bathrooms feature a walk-in closet, two natural stone sinks, a hair dryer, an Italian shower and a toilet. An outdoor bathtub is situated opposite the shower and the construction provides strict intimacy.

From the hotel, access to numerous neighborhood outdoor activities is quick and convenient: nautical sports, walk to the splendid Trou d’Argent beach.

Tekoma Hotel is located 30 minutes from the airport, and 15 minutes from Port Mathurin, the main town.
