The infinity pool is absolutely spectacular just like the view over the bay from the terrace of your bungalow (but not the family bungalow; they look out over a different less beautiful bay). Staff is friendly and helpful and the owners can accomodate you with all kinds of pricey excursions. The exchange rate of 1 €= 3000 AR is a... More

Hello, You are right, the infinity pool is absolutely spectacular, allowing a view that embraces the entire bay. Also, our exchange rate without bank commission is particularly attractive to Nosy Be. Regarding the dinners, we offer 2 starters, 2 mains and 2 desserts, you choose yourself and changing every day, through our chef and his entire brigade. The price is... More

One of the better places we stayed on Nosy Be. Comfortable bungalows with large beds and patio with hammock to relax, drink and read at the end of the day enjoying the ocean view. Beautiful infinity pool with views on Nosy Fanihy and with almost every day a stunning sunset, best to be enjoyed with one of the homemade cocktails.... More

I stayed at the grand bleau for 4 nights befor returning to Tana yesterday (18th october). Set on top of a hill, the first thing that grabs you is the views, which are totally out of this world. I saw the views and the infinity pool and felt like i'd died and gone to heaven! The second thing to grab... More

My and my friend stayed in Grand Bleu last year in October. I have to say we had a great time (despite the fact we had a rat in our bungalow almost every night- but I guess that is out of control as many creatures come in and out of there at night). Beds were VERY uncomfortable, but that is... More

If you find yourself in Nosey be and want to escape Hellville (aptly named) you could make your way down to the very lovely Le Grand Bleu in Andilana, a little over 20km away. You're in for a treat. Situated on a hill overlooking two bays this little spot of paradise sports a bar, classy restaurant, easy access to snorkeling,... More

We booked the hotel directly as the reviews were very good and after a few e-mails between my wife and the owners we decided to go for it. What a brilliant decision, we are both in our forties and have traveled around quite a bit, this was by far the best Hotel and holiday experience we have ever experienced. Celine... More

We've travelled to Madagascar for our honeymoon trip and we spent 6 days on this beautiful resort, ran by a really cute French couple. The hotel has very nice bungalows, with view to the ocean. The garden, the buildings, and the whole resort is lovely. It is in a silent and tranquil corner on Nosy Be island. The rooms are... More
