So what does it mean to be fully off the grid?
Not only are we located in a natural setting but we have also taken the environment into account for important operational decision.
At this point we operate 100% on solar power only to meet bare necessities such as low watt lights in all rooms, fans, communal charging stations and basic kitchen equipment.
Thanks to the sun we also have the luxury of a natural water warming systems for all showers as it can get chilly at night. Each unit has its own balcony with ocean view and bathrooms with biodegradable toilets to add to the cycle of life. Our staff are all from local villages nearby and we all seem to benefit from the exchange of skills and knowledge about gardening, natural building, waste management, cooking and more.
The joyous nourishment of eating our fresh seasonal food, much of which comes straight from our organic gardens, is one thing to excite your taste buds. We strive to serve our customers fresh meals that are filled with love, and tastes and will do out best to meet any special dietary needs. Relaxing by our infinity pool after a soothing and strengthening yoga class in our forest yoga shala or an epic surf session make a wonderful combination for real island getaway, away from the business of modern life and all the tourism traps.
Our aim is to create a warm and comforting space built with natural materials sourced from nearby and from recycled old boats to bring you close to Rote’s raw beauty so that you can fully relax, rejuvenate and take home a deeper sense of peace.
We hope you enjoy everything Utopia Lodge has to offer from real silence, family hospitality, yoga classes, candle lit dinners, magical sunsets, nourishing food, shooting stars, bonfires and a whole lot more…
