The Jardin Vanille is a small jewel hidden among the trees... You will find "Robinson Crusoe" bungalows, a very tasty cuisine, an especially warm and nice welcome... All this in a splendid setting.

    Location 7.0 /10

    The Jardin Vanille is situated in Nosy Komba, 1 hour by boat from the port of Nosy Be, in Anjiabe village.

    Accommodation 7.95 /10

    9 bungalows, 8 of which are standard and a bridal suite. The bungalows are equipped with a large bed and some of them with a small bed. All have a terrace with beach chairs and small table. Half of them overlook the sea and they are not equipped with TV, telephone, air conditioning, fan, minibar. Consequently, here the concept is 200% nature, far from civilisation. A safe is available at the reception (at the bar). The bathrooms have shower and toilets. The bungalows are limited, but all in wood and very typical. The owner wanted to keep completely the natural side. Moreover, there are not real windows nor real shutters, but a sort of windows with wooden slats.

    Overview 7.45 /10

    You arrive to the Jardine Vanille from the beach, on which you can see some houses of Anjiabe village. Then, some mangrove staircases bring us under a small ravenala top, arranged in a bar restaurant with a lounge area. Guardrails offers a panoramic view on the ocean. Here, the owner welcomes you heartly, with music. The setting is very pleasant. Then, other staircases bring us to the paths connecting the bungalows. At night the paths are lighted with torches and candles. This place is ideal to relax in the nature amongst the plants, mango trees, ravenala trees and lemurs... Yes, the Jardin Vanille is a real natural reserve!

    Food and drink 9.20 /10

    The cuisine is excellent. In our opinion it is the best ever tried in Madagascar, well presented, refined and delicious with fresh products from the sea, shellfish, fishes and also meat accompanied with well prepared legumes and starchy food... delicious desserts. The menu is fixed but can be changed if it does not suit the client. The wines offered are Madagascan and South African.

    Beach 7.20 /10

    The beach is protected and situated 655 feet from the coral reef. We saw it when it was very windy and rainy, so could not judge the quality of the water; it has though the reputation of being beautiful and the sand is nice. No beach chairs; it is not in the concept. Nevertheless, sunbathing and snorkelling are of course included!

    To know

    The Jardin Vanille accepts traveller's cheques and euros. The Jardin Vanille opened in 2001. It organizes various excursions to Nosy Komba and Nosy Tanikely, especially with diving and game fishing in partnership with 2 clubs of Nosy Be, as well as bottom fishing with villagers on pirogues. At the Jardin Vanille it is also possible to see lemurs.

      This pretty little hotel, with its chic-ethnic atmosphere located by the waterside, houses 6 rooms and serves delicious cuisine. You will enjoy the feeling of privacy, the decoration, which is modern but not too over the top, the chic but relaxed atmosphere and the lush garden (although you could give the animals a miss). A small piece of paradise for couples!

      Located at the heart of Hell-Ville, this city hotel is the perfect place for a break between excursions. If you are thinking of spending a little longer here, the facilities are limited, and apart from tasting the spiced rum made by the owner, there is not much going on! Except you must try a dish made with zebu, for which it is famed throughout the town!
