Relais du Kirindy, Kirindy Forest Reserve
Relais du Kirindy
Our rating: Superior | Property style: Lodge
The stylish Relais du Kirindy opened its doors in April 2017 and has provided a welcome higher-end accommodation option to an area previously lacking in upmarket places to stay. Just 30 minutes’ drive from the Kirindy Forest and an hour from Avenue of the Baobabs, this is an excellent option for a stay in the area. There are 26 spacious Bungalows at the lodge, all of which are raised up on decks and set a short walk from the main area of the lodge. Inside they are spacious and comfortable with mosquito net draped beds, two fans and plenty of storage space. The doors and windows have fly screens on them as well as shutters so the rooms are as “bug-proof” as they can be. En suite bathrooms are found at the rear of each room with basic amenities provided. Each room has a shaded deck at the front with easy chairs for relaxing in. The main part of the lodge is very stylish and reminiscent of an upmarket safari lodge, with a large pool and decking area as well as an open-plan lounge, dining room and bar area with the food being amongst some of the best enjoyed on mainland Madagascar. Relais du Kirindy fast established an excellent reputation amongst visitors to Madagascar as one of the best options on the mainland and is great for a stay in this stunning and under-visited part of the country.
