This is an amazing place to stay, to us a paradise! Totally remote (you take a small Piper plane from Antanarivo to land at the hotel`s airstrip (!) located in the forest reserve!) and then a 30 minute transfer in the back of a pickup truck - you are immediatley immersed in a beautiful natural forest reserve and lemurs jumping through the trees. Arrival at the hotel and the view is breathtaking - wonderful green lawns with lovebirds then the blue pool moving onto the white sands and deep blue sea.Each villa is made of rosewood, spacious, with lovely verandahs and hammock. All overlook the sea and some are also close to the forest - we had lemurs jumping on our verandah during the day! Service is exceptional from everyone (especially Anna who is a marvellous guest relations manager). Food excellent, varied, fresh and nothing was any trouble if you wanted to vary the daily menu offered. This is a wonderful place to easily see lemurs (many species) and amazing birdlife, and fauna. There are many walks from the hotel through the forest, which you can do your self - but recommend a night walk with the guide - so interesting. Paradise deserted beaches/coves can easily be reached on the walks or if feeling active the hotel has a small marina nearby with catamaran/kayaks and waterskiing. We loved kayaking up through the mangroves and the boat trip to Marumba bay fascinating for seeing Sea Eagles and Flying Foxes! We loved the opportunity to make visits to the school/village/market and experience some local culture - fascinating. It was hot in October, clear blue skies and just a wonderful relaxing place to stay. Ideal if you are combining this with visiting other places in Madagascar and want to unwind. We are well travelled, having stayed in many "well known" hotels worldwide, and our whole trip to Madagascar (also stayed in Perinet and Antanarivo) surpassed our expectations by far and we will certainly return.
