About Manafiafy Beach & Rainforest Lodge

Manafiafy Rainforest Lodge is majestically located, tucked along protected, rainforest-fringed shores perfect for snorkelling and swimming. There are just six bungalows at the lodge, each complete with their own table and chairs so you have the option of private dining.

The rainforest surrounding the lodge is filled with fauna including a number of different types of lemurs. 

Lodge Details


A relaxed and intimate lodge romantically placed on the shores of a protected beach.


Situated on the South East Coast of Madagascar, 2 hours and 30 minutes from Fort Dauphin by car or 20 minutes by light aircraft.

Accommodation & Facilities

Each of these stunning thatched-roof bungalows are furnished with your comfort in mind from huge beds to large armchairs, perfect to collapse into after your exciting day. They each have their own private veranda complete with a hammock where you can enjoy a sundowner and look out over the crystal clear waters. 
Manafiafy is completely powered using solar panels and has no sound pollution.


Meal times are a delectable affair, beginning with a continental style breakfast in the morning, which you can have ordered to your bungalow. Lunch can be organised as a picnic if you opt for a day trip or back at the lodge there are often barbeques on the beach. Dinner is a little more formal, usually created using freshly caught fish during the day.


It is completely up to you how much (or little) you want to do during your stay at Manafiafy as there are plenty of options. Whether you wish to lie on the soft white sands reading your favourite novel or explore your beautiful surroundings. Boat and canoe trips can be organised to neighbouring islands and local villages or go for a swim in the protected bay which is just steps from your bungalow.

Child Policy

Children are welcome at Manafiafy and one of the bungalows specifically caters for families.
