Les Dunes d'Ifaty

Discover Les Dunes d'Ifaty

Les Dunes d'Ifaty is situated 27km north of Tulear and overlooks the Mozambique Channel next to the fishing village of Mangily. This French-owned beach lodge is the perfect place to enjoy the lagoon, its large coral reef and explore the famous Baobab forest.

Constructed using traditional materials, there are 19 spacious stone villas which can accommodate up to 4 people, and 22 double rooms which are set amongst the tropical flora and indigenous plants. All the rooms have a Creole inspired design.

Guests can dine at the main restaurant which offers a range of Malagsy and International cuisine. The main building has a library, games room, a well-stocked bar, and there is a large swimming pool where guests can order a drink at the pool bar with views of the ocean.
