Such an incredible hotel, it's a shame we only stayed one night. Even though there was no electricity from 22:30h until 17h, the place is amazing. I would say it is one of the things that makes the hotel unique and original. In addition, the views from the room were stunning: from the bed the whole bay can be seen....

A beautiful lodge set on Mainland Madagascar. The rooms are comfortable with balconies with exquisite views. Great loungers set with views over the ocean. The food was very good and service from the restaurant and bar people was great. The management was quite distant and not very responsive to pre trip emails. Overall I would definitely recommend this lodge.

We have been there only for one night as part of a tour in Madagascar. The lodge boasts a stunning view on the ocean in front of Nosy Komba. Our bungalow had direct access to the sea with a stair, few metres away there is the lovely little beach of the resort, with coconut palms leaning on it. The style...

We can't comment on the food at this hotel as we only stayed one night and were so tired we skipped dinner. The accommodation is extremely basic and we did feel like we were roughing it. However, we did sleep well. Electricity is only available for a few hours up until about 10 pm. The location is lovely, right on...

Beautiful and relaxing place to stay! Food was top notch. Can't say enough about this place-in my top two places to stay in Madagascar. Rooms are large and comfortable. Take a boat from right off their dock to one of the small islands for a picnic and snorkeling

Wish we'd stayed longer than just one night before going to Nosy Be! We felt very much at home in this place. I loved the way they've furnished and decorated the beautiful building. Also, the lodge is perfectly situated. It was great to leave for Nosy Be by boat directly from here. At Nosy Be I discovered that I'd left...

Stunning views and lovely beach. Best hotel of 7 we stayed at in Madagascar. Basic but stunning. Felt like paradise. We were greeted with fresh coconut and straws! Very relaxing and peaceful. I did get quite sick from this point on and actually got worms, so would advise caution in the restaurant. When I ordered fruit juice it was clearly...

This place was a rum start. I hoped it would be a nice stepping stone on our way to nosy be, but we were pleasently surprised:it was so much more. Angela made us feel welcome in a blink, the rooms where cozy and the food was great. We did some snorkeling, which was nice, but don't expect perfectly clear water...

During our tour in northern Madagascar, we were able to stay at Ankify Lodge. This place is very nice and the view on to the bay is a dream. Dolphins were swimming near the shore. Management is very helpful and price/quality is best.
