Andasibe Hotel is the newest property 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 very spacious, en suite rooms located in 12 bungalows, the hotel offers the most comfortable accommodation at this national park for a two or three night stay. 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, mini-bar, safe and is equipped with heaters for the cold winter nights. In the neat gardens there is a good sized, sparkling swimming pool. Guests can also kayak in the small lake adjacent to the hotel.
The airy restaurant serves hearty meals with a Malagasy influence. Lunch can be enjoyed 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.
