Eden Lodge

Nosy Be, the Mitsio and Radama islands, Madagascar

Eden Lodge offers the best of Madagascar in one location: exotic wildlife, excellent snorkelling and a deserted sandy beach with magnificent baobabs. Standing under traditional Malagasy thatched roofs, eight stylish safari-style tents are spread out along a beach on Madagascar’s north coast, close to Nosy Be, but removed from its hubbub. 

Accommodation
The rooms are well finished with four-poster beds and en suite bathrooms with flushing toilets and hot-water showers. Each room has both a beach-front verandah, from which you can observe dolphins and the seasonal whale migration, and a terrace overlooking the gardens, to provide privacy for a massage or beauty treatment. The lodge has six double and  two twin rooms.

Food
The quality of the cuisine is superb, especially considering the hotels remote location. Breakfasts are taken from the buffet, whilst lunch and dinner are a la carte. You usually have a choice from 2 starters, main courses and deserts and the menu rotates every 2 weeks, so you’ll rarely have the same dish twice. The emphasis is often on sea food but there is also an abundance of meats and the hotel caters very well for vegetarians.

Activities & Facilities
Electricity is provided by solar panels and available round the clock. A mini-bar, safe and private massage table are among the facilities. There is one small generator to power the kitchen and laundry, but otherwise the lodge prides itself on being the first solar-powered luxury hotel in Madagascar.

There is a small activity centre on the beach with kayaks and a hobie-cat – non-motorised activities in keeping with the green ethos of Eden Lodge. Swimming is easy as the beach shelves very gradually and the sand is soft underfoot – no sea urchins in sight. However snorkelling along this coastline is rewarding and healthy coral can be found less than 100 metres offshore. Turtles are still seen most mornings in the sea grass outside the lodge.  Divers have easy access to the dive centres on Nosy Be and arrangements can be made through reception. The lodge also offers excursions to nearby Nosy Komba to see the black lemurs and to visit the other islands and beaches of the Nosy Be archipelago.

A number of lemur species inhabit the forest behind the lodge and guided walks (both day and night) into the forest are a main attraction of staying at Eden Lodge. The lemurs can often be seen in the trees around the restaurant and rooms, especially in the afternoon.

Access
Access to the lodge is by boat from Nosy Be or Ankify (about 45 minutes dependent on weather conditions).

Accommodation Reviews

'Fiona put together an incredible trip with short notice and we will remember this once in a lifetime experience forever. 

Relais des Plateaux: good for an overnight stay.

Vakona Forest Lodge: food outstanding. We had bungalow at end which was quite damp. Didn't hinder our experience at Vakona.

Eden Lodge: a little piece of paradise. 

Our experience with Rainbow Tours has been exemplary having both travelled extensively together and apart. We were anxious about booking a 'package'; we needn't be. Fiona listened to our requirements and organised the perfect combination of active and relaxation in a country that was more than we could ever dreamed of. We would both like to thank Fiona and Rainbow Tours for the honeymoon we thought we weren't going to get'

The quality of all our guides was first rate and really made the holiday as they told us about traditions and beliefs, had a good sense of humour - got us singing and dancing! They also had expert knowledge about the wildlife, history and religion. They could not do enough to help taking photos, helping us climbing up rocks, fending off beggars, translating in shops....

Overall satisfaction: excellent.

Petite Relais Masoala: excellent service and location. Probably didn't need the extra guide with us as the park guide was excellent.

Iharana Bush Camp: stunning location.

Eden Lodge: excellent staff across the board. A great place to relax but four nights was too many...we just got a little bored.

' Dear Derek

We wanted to thank you very much for all your help with our honeymoon (in July 2015) to Madagascar. We had the most amazing time in a country we'd wanted to visit for many years and it didn't disappoint! The itinerary you arranged for us was fantastic, and we loved the lemurs at Andasibe/Mantadia and the whales in Ile Sainte Marie and the sea turtles at Eden Lodge. Our highlight was the magical tsingy at Ankarana. This completely alien but incredible landscape will live in our memories for years to come. However, the asspect we most appreciated was the extra mile you went to to keep rearranging and re-planning and reassuring each time Air Madagascar changed our plans. We really appreciated all your effort and phone calls - it ended up seamless (from our end!) and some of the 'extras', particularly Anjozorobe, were highlights of the whole trip. We can't wait to go back to Madagascar! '

Our guides - Clement and driver Sian for the tour and Marisol at Eden Lodge were all fantastic and so incredibly knowledgeable - just adding to the rich experience we had. 

I'm really pleased too that we did not stay on the Island of Nosy Be - Eden Lodge is something very special and the island is noisy and busy by comparison so it is definitely worth the extra money to stay is such private and tranquil surroundings. In fact you absolutely nailed all the lodges to perfection for our holiday and suited us down to the ground. As is was also low season - we were at a couple places on our own for a night or two too.
