Hotel Colbert - Antananarivo
Hotel Colbert combines the style of traditional French hotels with legendary Malagasy hospitality. Located on the heights of Antananarivo with a panoramic view of the Queen’s Palace, its privileged central location will allow you to discover the liveliness of the city’s shopping and restaurants. The hotel’s La Fougere Restaurant and La Taverne Restaurant offer a mix of French, Malagasy and international cuisine. Plus, the hotel features a full spa.
Vakona Forest Lodge – Perinet Reserve
Located near a traditional village and on the doorstep of the Andasibe National Park, Vakona Forest Lodge is a nature lover's paradise. Each of the 24 charming bungalows is surrounded by luxuriant gardens and features a terrace/balcony to take in the peaceful setting. The restaurant boasts a varied menu of vegetarian, French, Malagasy and Chinese cuisine. You may also choose to play a game of squash, table tennis or billiards and have an invigorating swim in the fabulous pool.
Berenty Lodge – Berenty Reserve
The simple accommodations at Berenty Lodge, the reserve’s only hotel, are designed to blend with nature and provide a comfortable base for exploring Madagascar’s oldest and most famous reserve, Berenty. Berenty Lodge is arguably the best place on our Madagascar safari to observe lemurs up-close.
Please note that Berenty Lodge is also known as Gite d’Berenty and Gite d’Etape. They are the same property known by different names.
La Croix du Sud – Fort Dauphin
La Croix du Sud is a colonial style structure designed over two levels around a courtyard garden. Madagascar's historic links to France are clear in the steep sloping metal roofs and ornate wooden carvings along the roof line. All of the 30 rooms face inwards to the courtyard. Inside rooms are clean and fresh looking, with brightly painted walls and large windows looking out into the garden. Each room has satellite television, air-conditioning and an en-suite bathroom.
