Manafiafy Beach & Rainforest Lodge
With sparkling blue seas, verdant rainforests, abundant wildlife and distant mountains this small and intimate lodge offers you the choice of serenity
At Manafiafy Beach nature is your playground and you can take full advantage of the location. Straddling land and sea you can enjoy a rich variety of ocean, shore and rainforest-based activities - all of which are included in your stay. Choose from day, or night, walks in the rainforest spotting lemurs, chameleons and insects, enjoy snorkeling, kayaking and motorboat forays into the mangroves, engage with the local fishermen as they haul their morning catch onto shore, or simply relax and enjoy a massage in the open air spa pavillion. Keen sports fishermen can hire a boat and equipment and try their luck in the Indian Ocean, whilst whale watching cruises are also available at additional cost.
Whether you want to be active from dawn until dusk, or indulge in the abundant seafood and laze on the beach, your enormous open plan luxury cottage is a sanctuary in itself. All rooms are discreetly tucked away on a remote and wild stretch of mangrove beach, with the main lodge open, but designed in such a way as to create a cosy and convivial atmosphere. The large, oak dining table sets the stage for the lodges exceptional culinary offerings such as fresh lobster caught right on the doorstep, washed down with chilled wine or a cold beer. End your days with a nightcap as you sink into the cushions around the fire and relax to the sound of the rolling surf.
