The Island of Rodrigues is known for its slow pace and authentic lifestyle. Boasting an exceptionally exclusive layout, Constance Tekoma Rodrigues invites you to ditch the fast life and unwind amongst unspoilt nature, the sound of gentle waves and golden sands.

An autonomous outer Island marooned 600 km north-east of Mauritius, and holding just 45,000 residents, Rodrigues Island is a captivating tropical haven that unveils breathtaking landscapes, verdant surroundings, and abundant marine life throughout the year.

What is slow travel?

Slow travel is an attitude towards travelling that emphasises a more immersive, meaningful and unhurried experience. 

As opposed to traditional travel, where the focus may be to visit multiple destinations in a short period, and pack as much into your time as possible – slow travel encourages guests to spend more time in a single location. This allows for a deeper exploration of the local culture, a richer connection with traditions, and a more authentic lifestyle.
