Bakuba is the ultimate little design hotel, a guest house with an almost mainland African atmosphere. Located 14km from the city of Tulear and 7km from the airport, the hotel is the perfect destination for anyone travelling from Antananarivo by car or plane.Whether you are stopping over before moving further South or staying for longer, there are several activities which you can enjoy during your stay. In places that are still quite remote and not so well known you can discover what this land is like by car, bike or guided walks. Offshore, a trip swimming, a leisurely pic-nic are all great ways to enjoy the day.Evening time and the chance for a beautiful trip to watch the sunset over the Mozambique channel on the catamaran in the charming bay of Ankilibe for "sun downers!" Is a must.

Excellent facilities and superb kitchen. Sunsets, birds, tortoises. Great ambient music. Perfect place to recover for a few days after long drives and checking out the national parks along the RN7. Quiet. Relaxing pool. 10 min from airport.

We only stayed here for one night which was a shame. The hotel is quite small but our room was amazing as was the whole experience. We arrived fairly late in the afternoon and left early the next day but had a really positive vibe about the place. The Manager welcomed us and all

this is a wonderful place. The view during breakfast (Mozambique channel) and lunch (prairie) are both unforgettable. The design of the place is extremely odd but not in a bad way. The rooms have the basics but again have such a nice design that I'm not going to complain about

This was our second hotel in our Madagascar trip and we were blown away by the quality of the accommodation, considering it is fairly remote. It is certainly 'quirky' in its design but there has also clearly been a great deal f thought out into the decor and the items in each
