STAY IN SMALL-SCALE FAMILY-RUN HOTELS, GUESTHOUSES, ECO LODGES AND HOMESTAYS AND LEARN ABOUT THE LOCAL WAY OF LIFE
The hotels are well-situated, in the vicinity of many attractions, and are often surrounded by nature.
Below is a description of some of the hotels we use in Madagascar.
Antsirabe – Résidence Madalief
Résidence Madalief came to life as a place to create jobs and work experience. It is a sustainable hotel. For example, solar water heaters are used to heat water from the mountains and rooms are built with local materials and in the local style. The guesthouse is part of a Dutch foundation that helps orphans and single mothers in Madagascar.
Bekopaka – Orchidée du Bemaraha
The Orchidée du Bemaraha consists of several bungalows. A great asset of this property is its location near the Tsingy of Bemaraha. After a tour through the park is there will be time to relax in peace on the edge of the pool or on the veranda of your bungalow.
Ranomafana – Centrest
The Centrest hotel is near the Ranomafana National Park. The hotel offers a mix of guest rooms and bungalows, the latter situated slightly higher on the mountain. From your room you have a view of the village or the rain forest, and in the tropical garden you can often encounter a number of geckos.
Andasibe – Feon’ny Ala
Feon’ny Ala is a lodge with bungalows located on the edge of the Périnet National Park. Feon’ny Ala means ‘Voice from the forest’, and chances are that in the morning you will be woken up by the sounds of the jungle coming from the Indri Indri among others.
Tamatave – Palmarium
The Palmarium hotel lies at the Palmarium reserve. All the comfortable bungalows and even the restaurant have a view over the Pangalanes canal. The hotel is only accessible by boat because it is located on an island, and is therefore an oasis of calm. You will probably only hear the sounds of the bush; the lemurs playing around the bungalows keeps everyone entertained.
Sainte-Marie – Libertalia
The Libertalia hotel is the perfect place to end your holiday. Just relax on the beach and process all the impressions of Madagascar. The rooms are comfortable and the staff is very friendly. And the whale watching tour is true recommendation.
