In the private grounds of the lodge we had a 2-story former stables to ourselves. At breakfast, we could watch the hummingbirds, afterwards we would feed the pigs and have a stroll through the grounds watching birds, butterflies and iguanas in the cactuses. As the lodge is located close to Kralendijk, all the diving/snorkling spots and the National park are...

When you're looking for a place to stay at Bonaire, look no further and book Auriga Ecolodge. The owner Hans (re)build the lodge (which was formerly a horse stable) with his own hands and he's deservedly proud of the result. Expect a big wooden house with a nice and fully equipped kitchen, two showers (one outdoor shower!), two bedrooms, plenty...

Auriga Ecolodge is the perfect destination when you're looking for a place in the middle of nature. The area around the lodge is planted with typical Bonairean trees and bushes. A real green zone! There's chickens, a greenhouse and a BBQ place. And there are loads of other cool plans in the making! The lodge itself is spacious, colourful and...

Only a small drive away from the bustle of the town and water front, driving through the cacti bushes, we found ourselves in a little oasis, where at the same time as feeling connected to nature in an open space, we had all the privacy as well. Highlights for us were the warm and friendly design that made us feel...

The Auriga Ecolodge is an ideal place to experience Bonaire’s back country known as the kunuku. The 15-minute drive on dirt roads is well worth the effort for it delivers you to a Mecca of island nature. Owners Hans and Jenny have created an oasis for native plants and animals. I especially enjoyed my time on the stargazer platform that...

For those who are real environmentalists and want to explore the island, this is the perfect place. Hans, the owner, is dedicated to the environment and uses solar and wind power to help preserve the natural beauty of the island. Hans also happens to be an excellent tour guide for caving (we got to go snorkeling in a cave as...

In the middle of nature, close to the eats coast you find the Auriga Ecolodge. A very specious lodge which gives you a feeling of total relaxation the moment you step out of your car and still be close to Kralendijk and all beaches and dive-sites. The lodge is very tasteful decorated with a kitchen with all you need to...

We have never had a guest who has stayed this long at the lodge without really leaving the property. I suppose it must have given you the home feeling we want people to have while staying with us. Let nature do his wonderful healing work. Hope to see you again here !

We had a great time in the only eco lodge on Bonaire. It is a place where you can relax and enjoy nature in your own privacy. The place is great with an outside shower, hammock, two bed rooms, large kitchen, etc. And most of it runs on solar power. The look out point is grat during sunset. Furthermore, you...

We are happy that our customers liked staying with us. And we surely hope to see them back one day as they obviously liked the nature and the quietness around the lodge. We only have had great experiences with Bonaire Rent a Car and this was a very unfortunate incidence. We have contacted the car rental.

“There is a ground floor room and a room on the first floor. No airco but the possibility to make draught.”

“You'll have your pick of a bedroom on the first floor next to the kitchen or a bedroom on the second floor above the kitchen. We chose the upper bedroom, which had wonderful airflow through the windows at night, and we especially enjoyed the sounds of the bush and the heavy downpours at night. There is also a deck with a hammock and table on this level.”
