“Simply Outstanding”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

This is quite simply the finest place I've had the pleasure of staying in. Everything was spot on for a wonderfully relaxing stay. The staff worked really hard to make sure you were looked after, all with a genuine smile. The food was as good a quality as you'd find in a top European restaurant. I loved the Rum cocktails on offer. The garden and views were beautiful and the beach an absolute joy to spend time on. Raymond the head guide was a mine of information and could organise all kinds of activities (don't miss snokelling on Nosy Tanykelly or the tough but rewarding walk across the island).
The rooms were wonderful...I could go on and on!
I also have to say that it was indeed good value in the sense that you do get what you pay for and if that's not enough it's ethically and environmentally sound aswell.
ABSOLUTELY THOROUGHLY RECOMENDED!!

We went to Tsara Komba Lodge after a one week trip in Madagascar for five wonderful nights.
First of all the location is paradisiacal, the natural reserve, the botanical garden, the beaches…
Our lodge on the beach was really spacious, comfortable, and well designed. The private terrace is the perfect place to admire the beautiful view of the bay.
The restaurant has also this beautiful view, where we had our best culinary experiences, the French chef is fabulous. His attachment to slow food cuisine has really affected us. The dishes are tasty, fresh, creative… You discover some mixes that you have never thought of!
One night, they organized a special romantic dinner just for us on the beach lighted by oil lamps; this moment of intimacy was unique and will remain in our memories forever!
The getaways carefully organized by Maryze and Cecile were always magical, hiking in the forest, scuba diving, fishing, and the plus, the cocktail at sunset in the middle of the bay, what a fantastic panorama!
The guides are really friendly; they drove us by private boat in unspoiled islands to enjoy the beauty of the surroundings.
The services delivered there, are high standards, their care for details, for little touches of every day that make us feel at home!
Many thanks to all the team for their warm welcome, kindness and involvement to make our holidays a fairy tale.
It’s the perfect combination between luxury and authentic hospitality. Our only regret: too short stay…
If you are looking for exclusive and authentic experiences you must definitely go there!
We strongly recommend this hotel! We already miss this atmosphere and lifestyle!

At first, I have been proposed to spend some time in Madagascar since years and always refused untill this year: too much jungle and green, too far, too unknown.
When I arrived at Tsara Komba, I experienced in a glance the most amazing meeting between luxe and authenticity, sophistication and simplicity, without to speak about the extraordinary kindness of Tsara Komba Lodge 's team. Then, the discovery of all the tremendous work that the team is doing to restore its village, the unbelievable care of the environment by Tsara Komba has finally totally seduced me.No words about the unbelievable cook that knows to do with the natural production of the Island as delicious as greatest NY restaurant !

When we leaved in boat for some others island, I never enjoyed such a dream or tany emotion I knew before in Maldives, Bahamas, New Caledonia. Nothing has this strong beauty and character all together with peace and harmony. Great Nature!

I will be back as soon as I can. The faster will be the better!

I would go back again. The beachs are nice and have a good swim We stayed at Tsara Komba as part of a longer trip to Madagascar, the first part of our journey being shuttle around the small islands in the North Western side of Madagascar on a yacht charter. The lodge is stunning and have beautiful views from everywhere, even the rooms or chalets. We were quite tired and wanted to relax after the exhilarating adrenaline experience we had on the yacht and found the resort to fulfil this need very well. It is a small resort with lots of attention to detail and the manager (Maryse) was an excellent host, she realy went the extra mile to make our stay special. The high points for us was the stunning room and furniture and the views. The downside was that it was very hot (December) and thought that if the rooms had aircons, it would have been the perfect place. We also got bored with the French cuisine every lunch and dinner and found the breakfast to be awkward being used to south african bacon and eggs, though the fruit was wonderful. At the end we craved "normal" food such as a simple greek salad and grilled fish and chips. There is a nice beach, but if you are looking for that island style beaches that goes on as far as the eye can see, this one will disappoint. The location was also not ideal as it is on the mainland side of the island and does not get the nice sea breeze that would have helped to cool things down. We can highly recommend the walking tour up the mountain with their excellent and informed guide that will show you very interesting plants and their uses for the local people.

In 2009, after twelve days touring Madagascar we arrived at Tsara for a final 4 days at this Paradise. We were the only two guests staying for the first three days, the service was outstanding and the food cooked especially for us was a real treat.

On the third day I had a small accident on the reefs and needed some special assistant, Sofie went out of her way to take care of everything.

Unfortunately Madagascar is very far way to go back often, but I’m sure I will return one day.

Madagascar is a magnificent destination, don't hesitate to visit but do your homework well before you make a choice on the lodge and remember that the airline is unreliable (flights delayed more than 12 hours),don't even think about going for less than 10 days since the travelling takes up about half of that time.
