Manga Soa Lodge Nosy Be Madagascar

Treat yourself to a stay in Nosy Be Madagascar in a luxury accommodation at Manga Soa Lodge. You can also enjoy traditional Malagasy dishes.

Humans often combine their talent with nature, the creation of Manga Soa Lodge is the visible proof of this, nestled on the East coast of Nosy-Be. The quietness of the place participates in the lodge philosophy which is the respect of nature while evolving freely and cheerfully in the heart of this rich fauna and flora; and preserving its treasure is an attitude that every domain’s visitor or guest must observe.

The Manga Soa Lodge also reflects the successful blending of its operational teams, rich in the Red Island’s ethnic diversity. The lodge’s teams are a true ode to diversity. Six ethnic groups (Antandroy, Sakalava, Merina, Antesaka, Tsimihety and Vezo) work daily in perfect harmony on the Befefika site and all of them know how to honor their ancestral.

In the vegetable garden completed with a herbarium, he selects the season’s vegetables that have reached maturity and chooses the fresh herbs that he will enhance his creations. Pineapples, jacques and évi, these few fruits plentiful in Nosy Be and picked in the domain will embellish the tempting desserts with their flavors.

Each evening, you will compose your breakfast for the next day guided by Manga Soa Lodge’s team according to the seasonal products. A ritual specific to the hotel and of which you will appreciate the gastronomic discoveries by putting you virtually in the ovens. In order to make the local population benefit from the development of the Manga Soa Lodge, the fresh products come from the neighboring villages. A strict and regular quality control of these products is carried out to ensure their compliance with culinary requirements.

If you go on an excursion, the Chef will compose a basket filled with food that you will have chosen yourself. What wouldn’t he do to delight the gourmet in you even if it is miles away from the domain!

Banquets: the spacious terrace of the Arthur restaurant is ideal for celebrating family events and weddings in complete privacy. The Chef, a specialist in high-end catering events, will deploy all his talents so that your party will be remembered by your guests.

The space reserved for the bar and cocktails are adjacent to the reception. Ideally located between the reception and the restaurant, the Achille bar is a privileged place to meet and relax.
