Utopia offers the traveller more than just accommodation in the hilltops of Rote island. Located off the grid in the midst of nature 8 km away from the beach, the lodge invites its guest to come out of his/her comfort zone to unplug and return back to the roots, because the best way to recharge the batteries is to unplug them. The lodge has chosen to have minimal Electricity, no AC, Fans or hot water to return back to the essential way of life.
The goal is to run as a sustainable and self-sufficient lodge with as low impact to the environment as possible to retain the pristine beauty of this island. In Utopia being green is more than just a way of buying or consuming “Eco” – its an unshakable commitment to a sustainable lifestyle.
The lodge consists of indigenous natural buildings with compost toilets, it has its own vegetable gardens and fruit trees and is using well water and solar power.
