Formerly a health resort, Thermal Hotel was recently reconstructed to restore balance to the local environment and the community of Ranomafana. Designed to exist in harmony with the lush mountainous terrain, Thermal Hotel evokes a cozy cabin ethos with rich wooden interiors and 21 guest rooms lined with pine panels and punctuated by vibrant fabrics. Spacious and airy, each room includes an en suite bathroom, air-conditioning, a TV, a safe and a mini bar.
Thermal Hotel is committed to sustainable tourism development in cooperation with the local community. The property rests on a fertile riverside plot on the western edge of Ranomafana village. Ranomafana means 'hot water,' named for the region's thermal spring—a popular attraction that guests can visit from the hotel's footbridge. The hotel grounds blend seamlessly with the surrounding landscape and are thoughtfully maintained by the people of Ranomafana, who tend to the garden and vegetable patch. Guests can lounge on outdoor seating, search for resident chameleons, or take a leisurely stroll to the river to bird-watch. The property also boasts a wellness center with massage treatments, private pools and a gym.
Our travelers delight in Thermal Hotel's robust menu, curated daily by the on-site chef. Venture to the light-filled restaurant for ornate dishes imbued with Malagasy flare and fresh, seasonal ingredients from the garden outside. Then, grab a drink at the hotel bar and connect to the Wi-Fi to share photos and stories from the day's adventures. Golden bamboo lemurs, Milne-Edwards's sifaka and the elusive aye-aye await!
