Our commitment to Rote and planet earth

At Boa Vida Rote, our commitment to sustainability is deeply ingrained in every facet of our operations. We understand the profound impact that hospitality can have on the environment, and we strive to set a new standard by integrating eco-conscious practices into the very core of our existence.

By utilizing traditional construction techniques our buildings stay cool on the hottest of days without the need for AC, hugely reducing the need for electricity. Boa Vida Rote harnesses the power of solar panels to generate clean energy, reducing our dependence on conventional sources.

Our rainwater harvesting waters our garden providing some of the fruits and vegetables that make up our menu. Anything that we can’t grow at home is sourced from our local farmers and markets, vastly cutting food miles. 

But it doesn’t stop here. Visit our sustainability page to learn more about our commitment to building a future of sustainable hospitality and tourism in Rote. 



Perched on the cliff’s edge, the Boa Vida Rote restaurant offers an unparalleled dining experience that marries breathtaking ocean views with a locally inspired menu crafted from the freshest ingredients. Our chefs source the freshest, sustainably caught fish and other local ingredients to create a menu that reflects the essence of Rote Island’s rich culinary heritage. Every dish is a fusion of traditional recipes and modern culinary techniques, ensuring an authentic and delightful dining experience.

You will also find our healthy cafe Indika in the heart of Nembrala. Perfect for a snack between sessions when surfing spots a little further from home.
