Anakao Ocean Lodge

The South


Anakao Ocean Lodge overview

On a quiet and unspoilt beach fringed by a long coral reef, Anakao Ocean Lodge provides the chance to rest and relax, an ideal antidote to touring and sightseeing. It sits on a 1.5km beach of fine sand, opposite the island of Nosy Satrana, within a national park. Umbrellas, sunlongers and towels are provided so you have all your need for a lazy day at the beach. If you feel more active there's plenty to keep you occupied: explore by kayak, take a boat trip to a nearby islands for a beach barbecue, go surfing or waterskiing, and at the end of the day treat yourself to a sunset cruise.

Your home is an inviting bungalow, with a large bedroom, en-suite shower room and ocean views. Air conditioning keeps it lovely and cool, and you can help yourself to a drink from the minibar. There are some larger 2-bedroom family chalets, and 1 suite, all with similar facilities including private terraces.

The central area includes several seating areas, the lounge, bar and restaurant. At Anakao Ocean Lodge the freshest seafood is used to create dishes that are a delicious fusion of traditional Malagasy, French and Italian influences. The spa offers beauty and health treatments to leave you feeling refreshed and revitalised.
