I spent five nights at Relais in October and wish (a) it could have been longer and (b) I could go back. Set in beautiful and extensive grounds there is a central office/reception/dining area with over a dozen individual bungalows with all mod cons. Added to this the staff were superb and couldn't do enough for me from the managerial... More

Charming & comfortable accommodations in the local style + mod cons, all in a beautiful setting. Warm welcome, great food & service. Best of the 4 nature lodges I stayed in during my 2 weeks of travel around Madagascar.

I spent there 2 weeks (for a volunteering project with the local National Park committee) and I really enjoyed my staying there. the owners are extremely kind and the local personnel helped me all the time (also in the middle of the night when I needed them to intervene to...

My wife and I stayed at Relais either side of a trip to Masaola in August. This was our third visit to Madagascar, and having now covered most of the country we can say with certainty that Relais is one of the stand-out hotels. This is due in part to the dual force that is the owner (Monique) and her... More

Feature A nice lodge about 15 mins out of Maroantsetra - not in Masoala. Good for 1 night. Pos - Nice large huts, set in well-maintained grounds Pos - Well managed, pleasant, competent staff. Neutral - grounds are sandy, so thin vegetation. It is beach flats rather than rainforest. Neg - The name and PR are misleading - this is... More

My wife and I, along with our 2 friends, stayed at Relais du Masoala either side of a visit to the Masoala Peninsula. We wish we could have stayed longer. We were met at the airport and driven to this beautiful hotel, where on arrival we were met by Monique, the most charming hostess and owner. After a welcome drink... More

When you travel in Madagascar you start to understand why you need to spend time in different places before moving on. I had hoped to go straight to Nosy Mangabe from Maroantsetra and not "waste time" in between the spots I wanted to see. Well it was a good thing I stopped over at R du M. I got to... More

Monique's place (and Monique) is charming and was a magical spot from which to start the real "en brousse" part of my Madagascar trip far from Tana. Monique and Denise warmly welcomed our small group with comfortable accommodations, good meals, suggestions on when to go out and see the local people fishing in the mornings, and interesting insights about the...

Due to flight problems we arrived in Maroantsetra late afternoon with no local currency and minus my suitcase. Monique, the hotel owner, was amazing! She took me shopping to buy some clothes and essentials - with only 30 minutes shopping time she insisted that the stores would not overcharge me, because we were tourists. Monique changed some Euros into Ariary... More

Relais du Masoala is a stunning lodge with well-appointed cabins and great food. The zebu skewers at dinner were outstanding. Monique, the owner, accompanied us on excursions, planned surprise picnics for us, chose the best guides, and entertained us as if we were her personal guests. I had a memorable 2-night stay there and give it 5 stars for accommodations,... More
