#1 of 14 B&Bs / Inns in Toliara
Bakuba, petit hôtel au design unique, étonnant de créativité. Un must! Une maison d'hôtes à l'atmosphère africaine, aux touches ethniques, héritage de nombreux voyages. Un endroit où vous pourrez vivre la nature. Vous y trouverez convivialité ou moments d'isolement et d'intimité selon vos envies. Situé à Ankilibe, village de pêcheurs, à 14 km de la ville de Tuléar et à 7 km de l'aéroport. Dans la région de St Augustin où l'authenticité de la nature et de la population est bien présente. L'hôtel est la destination idéale pour tous ceux qui voyagent depuis Antananarivo en voiture ou en avion. Que ce soit pour une halte avant de se diriger plus au sud, plus au Nord ou pour y passer quelques jours. Pour les actifs, nous proposons une balade en pirogue, à pied dans les environs. Pour des moments relax, nous proposons une séance de massage ou simplement se plonger dans l'atmosphère Bakuba pour un repos au bord de la très belle piscine avec vue sur le jardin et le lagon. Pour les appréciateurs de bonne cuisine, des plats simples et pourtant raffinés.

Who would have expected this lodge in Madagascar? The hotel was custom built by its owner and every room is unique, as is the pool, dining area, and decor! You can walk to the beach or relax at the pool after touring the island during the day. Great food and wonderful service!

We arrived after a long and tiresome drive from Isalo, entered a bumpy gravel road, and arrived at the most amazing lodge we have ever stayed at. Very friendly and professional couple running it. Top notch food, spectacular view of the ocean, surrounded by a unique architecture. The kids loved exploring around, they thought we were in Lord of the Rings Hobbit village.

we stayed at this hotel for a couple of nights. The design and layout of the hotel is very quirky. The infinity swimming pool was great. the rooms were comfortable although some do not have a door between the toilet and the bed and/or electricity sockets which is not ideal. The breakfast and dinner were excellent, as was the service from the owner and staff. The walk is a 2 minutes walk from the beach, although you cannot swim in the sea here.

It was an unforgettable experience of immersion in the mysterious atmosphere of the True Art. As in life, art is multifaceted. Art manifests itself in the interior, hospitality, food and communication. Even the famous owners' dog is a separate masterpiece due to its intelligence. I strongly recommend everyone to visit the Hotel Bakuba. And definitely i'm going to come back.

This is a truly beautiful and unique place! Great design, couleur locale, spacious well decorated rooms, huge open areas with fresh airflows and stunning views over ocean and countryside, beautiful design small infinity swimming pool, great service of friendly staff, great cuisine with small superb menu, all freshly prepared and tasteful. No nearby restaurants or activities but 20 minutes walk over the beach to nearest fishermen villa GE and 5 km from arboretum d’antsokay with spiney forest inside... great 1 hour tour.
