Andasibe Hotel is the one of the 2 newest properties in the area and Malagasy run. It is closest to the national park entrance of the three lodges we use at this wildlife hotspot.
With 20 en suite rooms located in 12 bungalows, the hotel offers comfortable accommodation. Recently, new rooms were added to the property, in a block at the end of the hotel. A bonus is the hotel’s location which is just 800 metres from Andasibe village and 300m from the park entrance. Facilities include satellite TV, telephone, safe and is equipped with heaters for the cold winter nights. In the neatly landscaped garden there is a 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.
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.
This lodge is about 140km east of the capital, about 3hrs,30min by tarmac road. It is 300 meters from the Andasibe park entrance and about 37km from Mantadia National Park, so has the best location of the lodges servicing Andasibe-Mantadia National Park.
