A stay at Le Paradisier is a highlight of our Madagascar adventure. This luxury ecolodge overlooking the beach has been carefully designed to harmonize with the landscape. The lodge environs feature stone pathways lined with fascinating spiny forest plants, while the main restaurant has floor-to-ceiling windows to take in the views and the infinity pool appears to drop off into the ocean. Accommodations are in 20 two-story beach cabanas with thatched roofs, facing the water. A sitting room, bathroom and open shower are located downstairs. Upstairs is a double bed and small writing desk, with expansive windows lining three sides of the walls. Cool breezes from the Mozambique Channel drift through these lofty bedrooms, and the views of the beach and the ocean are unobstructed.
