Utopia Rote Lodge
Utopia Rote is an off the grid lodge set in the midst of rotes forests offering natural self sustainable accommodation, healthy food and daily yoga classes.
Our inspiration for the Suites originates from Indigenous architecture each unit offering forest and ocean view, big private balconies and outdoor bathroom, fans and mosquito nets.
The lodge is fully self sustainable running fully on solar power for electricity and water heating systems for the showers while our home grown vegetable and fruit tree garden provides fresh organic produce for the restaurant. Utopia invites you to retreat back to nature, recharge your own batteries while enjoying a clean and healthy living space with good food, yoga, surf and many other activity options that we are happy to assist you with.
We are located a 10 minute drive away from Nembrala beach and Besialu Reef (T to land surf break) in the hills close to Ambore Lake.
Rote island has an identity of its own with endless exploration and discoveries to be done. Located in the southern most point of Asia this exotic island has much to offer from amazing surf breaks to hectares of coral reef which are home to a rich diversity of marine life. Not only will it satisfy any ocean lover – Rote also stands our for its beautiful ancient rock and land formations , magnificent views and a unique indigenous Christian culture.
From rolling hills to stunning cliffs, caves and coves, powdery white sand beaches, untouched forests, lagoons and one of the oldest and biggest mangroves tree forests in Indonesia to there is plenty of beauty and wilderness to take in .
Throughout the year the land transforms from lush green vegetation to golden rocky landscapes – its “dry” season beginning in April to November and “wet” season stretching through the remaining months of November to March.
The surfers season starts as the trade winds turn offshore from April to November.
