“Malagasy genuinity, French charm, Italian hospitality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 September 2011

Excellent hotel on the sandy beach of Mozambique Channell, very big and green territory. Lot of different trees, bushes, flowers. Staff is very friendly and good educated. Guides and drivers are professional ones. Big original furnished rooms.Everything is very clean. Soft all inclusive. Good food, especialy dinners. Different fresh natural juices. Cool local rum - with ginger, cinnamon, vanilla. .. All drinks are served only in glass. Exciting excursions: Navetsy village tour (take a "walking shoes"!), Nosy Be Island Tour, excursion to Nosy Iranja, Nosy Fanihy and so on. Good place both for couples, family and solo. Go and try it! You will be happy.

Room Tip: I guess that you will find the best for you - ask the staff.

A great resort, and total luxury - just what you promised yourself if you ever won the lottery. Ideal way to end a tour with super staff, great comortable rooms and plenty of good food. Well worth the effort to get there and help the local economy at the same time. Dave t

Only stayed 2 nights, but this hotels is absolute paradise, room by the beach/seaside. Very good dinner one evening. We did a boat trip to the Sakatia island for 1 day, absolute must.

Location is perfect ( although it is a bit far from the city center ) and the beach in front of the cottage was really nice. However the restaurant was poor . We were quite surprised that tuna meat ( which is surely given from canned tuna ) has been supplied as appetizer named " Tuna with caviar " ( caviar was also not real caviar )
Other french like dishes at the restaurant was also not so exciting and then rather I recommend you to have pizza.About the room, I strong fee that mosquit net is necessary.

I really admired the thought that had gone into making the most of this location using local sustainable materials and employing Malagasy people. The whole setting was an excellent balance of utilizing the natural beauty of the coastline while ensuring that the business of tourism did not intrude or dominate the locale. A very clever, comfortable and sensitively executed concept. We received a really warm welcome there. There was plenty to do and learn about the location. Fantastic!

Well, where to start!! If there is a better place than this on planet earth then i'd love to see it. Everything about this place is stunning.....the setting, the staff, the food, the rooms. You are treated like royalty from the moment you arrive via speedboat. Everything is thought of and nothing is too much trouble. This place is also special because it supports a local economy and protects the very delicate local eco-systems. I really don't know what to say to do this marvelous place justice. You've just gottta go and see for yourself. Thanks Daniel to you and all your staff>

We were the only customers there at the time so were positively spoilt; eating on the beach, having a luxury suite, having hand tailored excursions etc. The staff are just lovely - Julien was the nicest guide and told funny (albeit a bit difficult to understand) stories, Marcello (the manager) made good conversation and Daniel looked after us very well.
The beach is amazing, unspoilt and with minimal deckchairs. Just walking around the site you can easy find chameleons which was nice for me. Excursions to Tanikely and Fanihi make fantastic views and snorkelling - recommended.
I was asked to post that the political situation in Madagascar should NOT put potential tourists off. Apparently the US government is trying to disuade everyone, which is a real shame because to be honest, if you're not staying in Tana for more than a few days there is really no risk. It is very sad to see all the hotels empty and suffering from a lack of clients, so my advice to would-be visitors humming-and-haarring about going is a defiant GO!
You won't regret it!
