Imagine a secluded resort perched above the hills, overlookingÂ white sandy beaches, basking in the surrounding beauty of Pulau Roteâ€¦ Imagine a tree house, built with the warmest wood, and a room with no walls, open to the sunshine, the breeze and the stars.Â This is the captivating setting of Boa Vida resort in Rote island which I had the chance to call home for a few nightsâ€¦ Exploring Rote island with my partner Phil â€“ Read the story here â€“ we set off for a romantic time to the secluded hills of Boâ€™a Vida, a luxury eco resort located on the West part of Rote island. Built entirely with local natural materials and running on solar panel energy, Boâ€™a Vida has the irresistible charm of complementingÂ the beautiful nature surrounding it.
Arriving at Boâ€™a was like stepping into a whole new part of our holiday. The very special light, the views, the nature surrounding us and the incredible beauty andÂ serenity of this place are hard to describe. With its red soil and natural and warm tones, the resort reminded me of Africa
Our nest for the next 3 nights was to be a gorgeous treehouse, overlooking the ocean. Although the resort is secluded, the level of comfort and the attention to details at Boâ€™a is truly remarkable. This is a real luxury retreat: from the freshly scented towels in the bathroom to the delicious and healthy mealsÂ prepared daily by the Chef, the exquisiteÂ tropical decoration and the in-house masseuse.
Boâ€™a Vidaâ€™s world class surf break
Stepping outside of Boâ€™a, a stunning white sandy beach runs for miles, while Boaâ€™s world class wave breaks right in front of the resort. We were stunned to discover that pro surfers Marlon Gerber and Asher pace were casually riding it during our stay and Phil happily joined in!
A natural dream
While Phil was making waves, I went for a long walk along the stunning sandy beach. I also enjoyed a swim to the secret beach right below the resort, secret as itâ€™s only revealed at low tide! Mother Natureâ€™s beauty was all around, completely unspoiltâ€¦ Picking up seashells on my way back, I felt grateful for the simple joy of being here, surrounded by the incredible nature.
As the sun was setting in Boâ€™a Vida, we were just overwhelmed by the exceptional beauty and serenity of this place, feeling incredibly grateful to witness it.
What makes Boâ€™a Vida trulyÂ specialÂ however isÂ itsÂ timelessness: time here seemedÂ asÂ if suspended, while we felt a mix of peace, happiness and wonderÂ for having the chance to stay in such a magic place
I hope you enjoyed this story. I certainly lovedÂ sharing it, as memories of this incredible placeÂ and our time there aroseâ€¦Boâ€™a Vida isÂ simplyÂ unique andÂ unforgettable! xoxo â€“ The Tropical Nomad â€“
