Andasibe Hotel

Andasibe-Mantadia National Park, Madagascar

 

Andasibe Hotel is the one of the 2 newest properties in the 'Perinet' area and is owner- run. It is closest to the national park entrance of the four lodges we use which services this world renowned rainforest wildlife hotspot.

Accommodation:

With 20 en-suite rooms located in the 12 original bungalows, the hotel offers what is currently the most comfortable accommodation in Andasibe-Mantadia. (Large, comfortable rooms and modern bathrooms). 

Amenities include satellite TV, telephone, safe and is equipped with heaters for the winter nights. In the neatly landscaped garden there is a sparkling swimming pool. Guests can also kayak in the small lake adjacent to the hotel.

The airy restaurant serves meals with a Malagasy influence. Lunch can be taken on the terrace, or a packed lunch can be prepared if you are planning on taking longer walks in the rainforest.

Recently (mid 2016), some new rooms were added to the property, in a separate block at the end of the ground. (We do not book the new block).

Activities:

Aside from serving as a base from where you can explore Andasibe National Park ('Perinet'); Analamazaotra rainforest consession and Mantadia National Park, guests can also visit Lemur Island for that 'lemurs-on-the-shoulder' experience. 

Access:

This lodge is about 140km east of the capital, about 3hrs,30min  by tarmac road.  A bonus is the proximity to the park entrance  - just 300 meters. Guests can also visit Lemur Island while based here. 

Accommodation Reviews

'Hi Helen,

Thank you very much for your email, and even more for setting us up for such an amazing honeymoon.

We loved staying at Andasibe Hotel (and we really liked Maison Gallieni too).

The local guide in Madagascar, Dennis, was excellent, and so was the driver. We would thoroughly recommend them to anyone going there. Dennis is extremely knowledgeable, and provided us guidance on what we could have done in the park while leaving us time and space for us to make up our own mind on what would work best for us.

Unfortunately having only two full days to spend in the area meant that we could not visit the Mantadia park, also because the quickest road leading there has been badly damaged by the cyclone and access was very difficult. Going back in time we would probably like to spend another day there, but this is our fault... We loved the excursions in the Andasibe park both during the day and at night, and we got to see two Indri families and several Sifaka from a close distance.

Thank you for flagging up the tree planting activities organised by Mitsinjo: we felt it was a really worthwhile cause, and we think this should really be promoted among tourists going to Andasibe.

On the way back to Tana before taking the flight to Mauritius, Dennis also made sure that we could spend some time in a souvenir shop, so that we could get something for friends and relatives.

As for Mauritius, Trou aux Biches is fabulous, and thank you for recommending it to us! The beach is stunning, and so are the scenery and the food. The beach would be even better if they managed to move the motor boats away, as one local beach vendor told us they are already planning to do, as they are quite noisy and tend to run pretty close to the swimming area.

Overall, we are extremely happy with Rainbow Tours: it was the first time ever we were travelling with a travel agency, and we could not have hoped for a better experience. We have already recommended it to some friends, and we will keep doing so whenever the opportunity arises. Needless to say, we will get in touch when we plan our next long-distance trip.

Thank you again for your guidance and assistance.

Best wishes,

Roberto & Daniela'

'Everything worked like a dream. There were no hiccups. Jessica was very informative and eager to go the extra mile to ensure that we were able to do everything we wanted to. Michael was also an excellent guide, showing great concern for our well-being. He told us lots about the politics and cultural life of Madagascar. 

The Litchi Tree: beautigul gardens, Herve was charming.

Iharana Bush Camp: arriving after dark, the accommodation was so poorly lit it was difficult to unpack. Shaving in the bathroom with loits of baby frogs was unnerving initially but in the daylight we got to enjoy their company. 

Sakatia Lodge: it was a tropical island paradise. The family were very friendly and tried hard to ensure we had a good time.

Andasibe Hotel: the lighting was poor. 

Considering our brief of lemurs, baobabs and some beach time we feel you did us proud. It all worked out very well and we had a really fantastic holiday which we will have fond memories of for a long time.  The guides made it for us. Jessica even told us a traditional Malagasy story about the drongo and the fruit bat. '

'Herilala was a SUPERB guide - he even went to Berenty with us!. Excellent holiday. Met all our expectations and exceeded on wildlife spotting. Very satisfied with Relais des Plateaux. Food was surprisingly good at Andasibe Hotel. Berenty is stunning for wildlife. La Croix du Sud had the best decorated bedroom and bathroom outside of Anjajavy: the photo in the itinerary does not do it justice.

Mantadia was excellent and order was reversed, which was the right thing to do because of the poor state of the road to the park and the long drive back to Tana.

The road to Berenty was very picturesque but 'deteriorating road' does not describe it......the driver was excellent and managed the jouney in 3 hours thanks to some superb rally driving!'

'Well organised tour and couldn't fault the care we were given by our guides and representatives in a very poor country in its infancy of tourism.

Combava Hotel: Good. Fine for overnight stops and very nice to have use of a room before late evening transfer to airport.

Andasibe Hotel: Good. Unprepared for how cold Andasibe-Mantadia National Park was in the evenings. Otherwise absolutely fine.  

Princesse Bora Lodge: excellent. Couldn't fault the hotel - wonderful'.
