Isalo Rock Lodge

Accommodation

Below is some of the wonderful accommodation to include on your journey.

Relais De La Reine £££££

  • Madagascar
  • Safari and Wildlife Lodge

The spectacular Relais De La Reine is one of a handful of beautifully designed lodges in the Isalo area, seeming to grow out of the spectacular rocky landscapes. Sitting amongst the canyons in lush gardens and dramatically lit paths feel like the grounds of a medieval castle. Spacious and cleverly designed stone bungalows take full advantage of the spectacular and ever-changing rocky skyline and the main bar and dining area have a genuine buzz, with the owners’ brilliant hospitality adding to the atmosphere. Take a dip in the pool after a day trekking in the area, or enjoy a sunset horseback safari from the lodges very own stables.

Jardin du Roy £££££

  • Madagascar
  • Safari and Wildlife Lodge

A favourite haunt of the sapphire traders in the area, who add glamour to what is already a very stylish place to watch the ever-changing colour of the dramatic landscapes of Isalo. Seeming to grow out of the surrounding sandstone, this family-run lodge offers stylish bungalows within four “houses” dotted around the garden, filled with locally designed rosewood furniture and expansive verandas from which to soak up the view. When not out exploring the park, the large, rock side pool offers the perfect place to cool down as the rocky landscape soaks up the sun. The exposed brickwork of the lively bar and restaurant are centred around a huge fireplace, the walls lined with antique photographs under an imposing chandelier, where you can enjoy a drink looking out across one of the country’s most dramatic skylines.
