Huge room with mezzanine floor, bed was also huge I lay there looking up at a deep pink canopy which supported the mosquito netting around the bed, it was like a four poster Malagasy style. Bathroom also large and with the best shower we had in Madagascar. Didn't like the loo in a seperate room across from the bathroom, no sink which meant had to open door to go across to the sink, not very hygenic. The fact that there was no electricity at night meant the aircon went off just when it is need, it was airless in the room. I kept waking up lathered in sweat.
Food was O.K. felt that as this was an expensive place anyway to charge extra for eggs was not really on, even the simple places we stayed in offered eggs as part of the breakfast. We also had two early morning starts i.e. 6am to visit the National Parks, we were given a tray in the evening with bread and jams and a piece of fruit and a flask of coffee or hot water as our breakfast. The bread was inedible by morning even though it had been wrapped in tin foil.
Went for an excellent massage at their sister hotel which was excellent.
Reason for title? I like luxury but it just didn't feel right in a country that is so poor to build such a luxurious place. I felt it stuck out like a sore thumb.
