Great massages and treatment available. The hotel is well situated, the food ok. Watch out for the oursins! Can really recommend the spa. The pool is cool. One of the better places to stay on the island. The staff are really helpful and friendly.

Thank you to come to the Jungle Spa. It is important to know that the Jungle Spa is also open for non resident of the Lodge. We are happy to see that you enjoy our natural treatment.

Awesome place, pure tranquility! Spa was amazing, food was good and a great wine cellar. Beautiful infinity pool and beachside hut had its own private hammock. ONLY downside is slightly over priced for Madagascar, but worth it if not budgeting!
