Les Dunes dIfaty
  • The wind rushes through your hair as you glide over the waves in a pirogue while vibrant fish dart beneath you on the world's third largest coral reef.

  • Recline and forget the everyday while the sky blazes orange as the sun sets over the Indian Ocean.
  • Gaze in awe at the ancient giants in the nearby spiny forest, the baobabs of the southwest are mesmerizing.

  • Search for the minuscule after the sun sets in the trees around the lodge, where mouse lemurs leap in the dark.  

Les Dunes d’Ifaty is located 27 kilometres north of the city of Toliara next to a Mangily fishing village, directly overlooking the Mozambique Channel and its coral reef barrier. Set amongst six hectares of gardens containing a wide variety of indigenous plants from this dry region, Les Dunes d'Ifaty is built in a traditional Malagasy style using local materials, and comprises of nineteen villas and twenty-two luxury rooms that are simple but stylish with brightly coloured walls and locally made furnishings.
