About Les Dunes de Ifaty

Les Dunes de Ifaty is built on a 6 acre area of tropical flora, 27 kilometres from Tulear and directly overlooks one of the longest coral barriers in the world in the Mozambique Channel. Spread throughout the tropical garden, there are 19 spacious villas and 22 rooms each made from local materials, with ecology in mind.

A romantic hotel, it’s the small details here that really make a difference and enhance the creative atmosphere and unique experience of each of its guests. 

Lodge Details


A romantic and comfortable hotel with a range of accommodation types.


Next to the ‘Mangily’ fishing village, 27 kilometres from Tulear, the hotel is amongst tropical gardens, with views to the coral barrier of the Mozambique Channel, and access to the famous Baobab Forest.

Accommodation & Facilities

The 19 stone villas are spacious, with a frame made out of Katrafay woods and dry stones from the region adorning the walls. The floors and window frames are made from Anakaraka wood, giving the whole area a feeling of authenticity. Villas are built for two guests, but can accommodate up to four with additional beds, and have a wonderful terrace from which you can absorb your surroundings, as well as an en-suite bathroom with a rain shower. There are also 11 standard rooms and 11 superior rooms peppered throughout the tropical gardens, all with pool and beach access. The rooms are also made for two guests.

There is a large swimming pool with views over the Mozambique Channel, a communal lounge, restaurant and beach bar right on the sands.


The restaurant serves delicious international cuisine and serves up to 80 guests at a time.


A dip in the pool is a great way to relax, especially with the outstanding views it offers. Of course, you can go and relax on the beach, but there are lots of other activities available. During the day you can go diving, snorkelling, enjoy boat trips and other water activities, or stay dry with horse riding excursions, quad biking, mountain biking, badminton, cultural trips and guided walks, or even indulge in a bit of beach volleyball. Traditional massages are also on offer.
