Karibotel overview

This small hotel opened in May 2014. It has 8 bungalows and 2 family rooms which can accommodate up to 4 people. They are simply but adequately furnished and all have private bathrooms with hot and cold water and which feature local stonework on the floors and walls. Sliding glass doors at the front of each room lead out to a private veranda. 
Facilities include an outdoor pool, upper floor restaurant, lounge and bar all making the most of the wonderful, panoramic views of the village, lush countryside and Namorona river. The hotel is a short walk from the centre of the village, where you can observe daily life, meet local people and bathe in the hot springs. There's also a park here, the only place where you can see the golden bamboo lemur in the wild.

Amanda Marks

"I visited this hotel just before it opened in mid-May 2014, so didn't see it working. It's just outside of the village but not too far to walk if you want to.  The rooms are simply but quite tastefully done. If you want the best view in town, this is it."
