This is the best option from which to visit the Tsingy de Bemaraha National Park and has a pleasant location looking towards an escarpment which makes for impressive sunsets. The individual bungalows are comfortable, although they dont have air-conditioning which can make them a little warm during the heat of the day, but thankfully the lovely infinity pool provides the perfect opportunity to cool off. The food is varied and mixes Malagasy traditions with Western dishes to provide a menu which changes daily.
