With sparkling blue seas, verdant rainforests, abundant wildlife and distant mountains, this intimate lodge offers you your choice of serenity or adventure.
Soak in the tranquil beauty of the natural surroundings from one of Manafiafy’s luxury thatched bungalows. Nestled into a forest fringed cove, each bungalow offers a private terrace just inches from the sea.
Leave your stress and strain behind and relax in a unique atmosphere. Immerse yourself in the original, slow life of the local fishing village and experience the breathtaking wilderness of this secluded paradise.
Each of the rooms lead directly to a pristine white sandy beach with azure waters of the Indian Ocean.
The four luxury bungalows and one family villa are discreetly tucked along the edge of the forest, all with private wooden terraces and stunning views across the bay. These rooms meld local wood, ravinala thatch and stone with modern comforts to create the perfect feel-good atmosphere.
At Manafiafy Beach and Rainforest Lodge nature is your playground with distant mountains, lush rainforests, white sand beaches and lapping waters of the Indian Ocean all at our doorstep.
Manafiafy take full advantage of their location straddling land and sea to offer you a rich variety of sea, shore and rainforest-based activities.
Your choice of activities includes: whale watching from the Manafiafy lookout tower, open air massage pavilion, coastal trip with picnic lunch, fisherman’s village of Manafiafy, visits to local markets and schools, daytime and nighttime walks in the rainforest spotting lemurs, chameleons and insects, and much more!
When you are not exploring or relaxing, a mouthwatering feast of lobsters, oysters, mussels, and fresh fish flows from our open kitchen.
The delicious meals are taken in the open, thatched dining area of Ravinala. Depending on your preference, you can enjoy the perfect sunset by our outdoor campfire or enjoy an aperitif in the lounge area by the fireplace.
