Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 3, 2011

This hotel is the very best money can buy and worth every penny. The stunning views are perfectly complemented by the natural materials used to make the bungalows blending with the gorgeous surroundings. Each one is extremely spacious with bed and also shower overlooking the sea and surrounded by a fantastic garden bursting with all kinds of Madagascan wildlife. Very private. Initial concern about value for money was lost as soon as we arrived and the staff are exceptional - very quietly working around you. In 6 days we only saw a small fraction of the 20 odd staff members signifying their attention to detail.
The food (French chef - Nicholas - with 2* M experience) is to die for. Most food is either caught off the beach or grown in the large garden but the chef's results are truly impressive. His experience with the best clearly shows and you would be pushed to find anywhere with such a mix of hotel and food quality.
Private boat trips and hiking trips are on offer, all to an excellent standard. With local villages very close by you do not feel cut off at all, like so many other hotels.
All in all, an extremely home from home yet exclusive hotel perfect for any honeymoon or romantic getaway with an unbeatable service.

Room Tip: Bungalows away from the beach offer more privacy.

After having spent the previous weeks tramping through rainforests searching for lemurs and fossas and staying in extremely rustic accommodations we decided to treat ourselves with a few nights at the Komba. it was such a pleasure to stay in beautiful surroundings and with fantastic staff (Sofi in particular) at hand. The chef's creations were some of the best cooking I have had anywhere in the world and he was very kind to make some special things for me when I got sick from previous exposures. If there is one place that says luxury, restful, and attentive service this is it.

We will be back and next time for a longer stay.

Very nice hotel. Just 8 bungalows, there is a lot of privacy and each bungalow has it's own huge terrace! Food is good, breakfast every day the same. For sun bathers, the sun is gone at 4 pm at the beach.

My family and I agree that we've actually ruined any other hotel stay by having come to Tsara Komba.
I was worried about whether it would really be value for money before we arrived. Maybe it would just be an expensive hotel with average facilities.
But from the moment we pulled up on the boat, we felt like we were in a James Bond film. Even living in Madagascar and travelling a lot, I had never seen anything so beautiful. The waiters ran down to get our bags, and from the get go everyone was so charming and friendly, without being obtrusive. Cecile and the other hotel manager get the balance exactly right.
The bungalows are simple and tasteful, but beautiful at the same time. Really nice touches to the decoration - like the shower head coming out of bleached beach wood, flowers put on your fresh towels every morning etc.
The food is incredible. Some of the best I've ever tasted.
And the restaurant area, at the top of the hotel and looking out over the beach and sea over to the mainland, is absolutely breathtaking, and so beautifully decorated.
I'm booking to go back this year. I've tried other (similarly expensive) hotels since but nothing has been able to compete, and I don't think they ever would be able to.

In few words: before I checked in, I was completely lost and stressed out. (big time!)
The moment my feet felt the warm sand of the private beach , the Magic was ON !!! : Tsar Komba had such Magnificient and peaceful landscape, the hotel itself is a "Majestic beauty", not mentioning the kindness of the staff , etc... Although still few tears (I did not want to leave this haven of peace), everything became so crystal clear to me: ...I left , feeling lighter than A FEATHER.

My husband and I went to Tsara Komba for our 5 year wedding anniversary. We had been planning the trip for months and Tsara Komba lived up to every expectation. It is situated in the most delightful cove and every room has such amazing ocean views. We loved how the rooms are completely open with views even from the shower. Since we were there on a romantic holiday we appreciated how many places there were to relax and enjoy the views together. The food was wonderful with lots of fresh juice and local seafood, the service was always superior and the lodge and all of the areas are so tastefully done. Our one complaint is that there were not always enough chaise lounge chairs on the beach, but there are always so many activities to do if you want to be active that sometimes it seemed a shame to spend so much time on the beach! We loved the snorkelling, both around Nosy Tanikely and just up the beach from the lodge, and we also enjoyed our walk up the mountain. Wildlife viewing was also great just from our room. We even saw our first lemur from our private balcony! But our favorite aspect of the lodge was the low-key feeling---everything was very relaxed, yet we felt we could do/get anything we wanted/needed cause the staff were always willing to help out, from pirogue rides to the best coral areas, tea/coffee on our balcony, even a basket of beach toys to use in and out of the water. Everything was so easy, beautiful, romantic and fun.

The staff at Tsara Komba are helpful and friendly and spoke really good English. The bungalow we stayed in was amazing with beautiful 360 views and two sitting rooms! Though the path next to the bungalow was like the M5! The food was beautifully prepared but limited in choice especially if you didn't like fish. The activities were good we went snokelling. Make sure you take bug spray as we both got eaten alive at night. Overall a truely wonderful experience with friendly staff.
