Generally, this is quite a nice place. There are a few MAJOR PROBLEMS, though: *) The beach is nice and vast, but in 5 days there we did not swim once on that beach because the current and waves are very strong. In fact, we never saw anyone swim there. We walked about 50-55 mins to the next beach where... More

We (my boyfriend and I) spent unfortunately only 4 nights at the Riake Resort. We were visiting family in Madagascar and decided to go some days to the beach. Travelling to Sainte-Marie takes some time (by car and boat) or some money (airplane). We choose to go by car and boat, which worked fine (9 hours by car and 2... More

If you're looking for heaven on earth then stop searching it's here! We've been amazed by the work done by the owners to build this beautiful and peaceful place in the middle of nowhere. We've been almost alone enjoying the white sand beach of the hotel, there are plenty of amazing plants (cinnamon, pepper, coffee, vanila...) and animals. The crew... More

We spent 10 days in this beautiful resort and we did all the amazing excursions proposed. They are incredible and everyone is different, in fact every day we discovered a new part of Sainte Marie with these interesting excursions. The guide was wonderful and very prepared. A truly luxurious and unforgettable experience in a privileged part of this beautiful island!... More

It is not just a holiday, staying at Riake Resort & Villa but a true experience. The hospitality from all the staff from the moment you arrive is exceptional and creates a wonderful atmosphere.I could not get over how quiet it was. All you can hear is the ocean. The attention to detail is what sets it apart from other... More

This resort is not a bed and breakfast in the traditional sense! 8 bungalows and one larger "villa" located on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. You have a choice of meal plans, with each of the units having kitchen facilities - but you will need to plan your food purchases before you arrive at the resort... More

I came across Riake Resort and Villa when looking up hotels in Ile Sainte Marie, and was immediately drawn by its beautiful photos and location. My expectations were exceeded by far- it is a beautiful, natural, and peaceful place, run by lovely people who take care of your every need. Each bungalow looks out on a peaceful white sand beach,...

I made a half day trip to Riake Resort for Horse riding. The owner picked me up from hotel Libertalia near center (the place is quite far away from the center, maybe an half hour ride). The place is really beautiful and I was so impressed that the owner had built and designed everything by himself. The beach is huge... More
