The Nautilus is a nice hotel where Nathalie and Denis, the owners, favour simplicity. No airs around here, just the necessary comforts in a friendly atmosphere.

    The Nautilus is located in Ifaty, 1 hour by car from Tulear.

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    The rooms are painted white, decorated with sea themes. Very clean, they are nice, they have a view of the sea or the park, and have adjustable air-conditioning. A safe-box is available in the manager's office. All the rooms have a bay-window and a sundeck. The bathrooms have showers.

    Overview 6.95 /10

    The Nautilus was built in 1998. The rooms are housed in 4 solid white buildings. You do notice however, a lack of Malagasy character. The entrance to the hotel is through the bar-restaurant. Lots of activities are organised: scuba diving, big-game fishing, whale discovery, trips to Nosy Be and Anakao, discovering the Reniala woods, the tortoise park, and the baobab woods in a zebu cart.

    Food and drink 7.20 /10

    The restaurant is simple with plastic chairs and tables. The cuisine is French and Madagascan: seafood, fish soup, zebu... The wines offered are Malagasy, French and South-African. No snacks between meals are offered here.

    Beach 6.95 /10

    The beach is not protected against the wind. It is pleasant, the water and the sand are good quality.

    To know

    The hotel welcomes lots of French, Italian and English guests. It accepts blue Visa credit cards, euros and checks. The hotel offers an emergency landing runaway.
