Time appears to stand still at this lodge surrounded by astounding natural beauty...

Sat on a 1.5km stretch of pristine beach, put the stresses and strifes of real life on the back burner as you enjoy this gorgeous authentic Madagascan property.

From the moment you step off the boat, to be greeted with a drink, you descend into an ambiance of effortless, laid-back refinement where attention to detail is of the highest calibre. Here you will lose yourself in the joy of the light surf, a serene half-moon bay and the gorgeous sun setting over the Mozambique Channel.



Members of PADI or other dive organizations can book their dives at Anakao Ocean Lodge & Spa. In high season periods, it is recommended to book well in advance. For those who have never experienced the peace and solitude of a dive, this is the ideal opportunity to try it out.

Boat & BBQ

Journey to one of the nearby islands, explore the beaches of Maromena and mangroves, before ending your day with a barbecue of fish caught that afternoon and cooked on a wood fire on one of the most picturesque beaches in the region. Perhaps the most romantic experience in the entirety of Madagascar.

Private Island Sunset

A must for any honeymooners, you’ll leave by boat in the late afternoon to reach the island of Nosy Satrana. Here you’ll sit sipping sparkling wine silently enjoying the sunset.



Whale watching
