Located two hours north east of Fort Dauphin near the village of Manafiafy in Madagascar, Manafiafy Rainforest Lodge is tucked along protected, rainforest-fringed shores which are perfect for snorkelling and swimming.
The four luxury bungalows and one family villa are nestled along the edge of the forest, just inches from the sea, all with private wooden terraces and views across the bay. Each one melds local wood, ravinala thatch and stone with modern comforts to create the ultimate stylish and relaxed atmosphere. A private terrace with hammock, a super king-sized and an en suite bathroom with hot water and a walk-in shower add to the comforts.
Meals at Manafiafy Rainforest Lodge are enjoyed in the open thatched dining area of Ravinala. You can also watch the sunset by the outdoor campfire or enjoy an aperitif in the lounge by the fireplace. Continental breakfasts are served in the public dining area or on your terrace.
