Peace in the forest

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 30, 2013

Vakona is the top rated place in the area of Andasibe National Park, though it is located closer to the less visited Mantadia Park so it does take a little longer to get to and from the hotel that the alternatives closer to the RN2. The road in is quite rough as well.

It is a beautiful place to stay. We found it very comfortable. The room heater protected us from the cold (it was winter, though I'd expected warmer weather at the lower altitude). The bed was comfortable though the mosquito net was occasionally annoying.

We found the food at the restaurant very good, though there are mixed reports. The bread at breakfast is indeed of variable freshness, but possibly due to the remote location

We did have some money stolen from the safe in our room. The thief was careful enough to select only a couple of notes in the hope that the theft was not detected. The hotel was disturbed by our report, but not overly so. Do bear this in mind - room safes are only as secure as the master key.

Unique Quality: A main attraction of the Lodge is its proximity to the Lemur Island, where you can get up close and personal with your relatives. Since these are apparently rescued pet lemurs, they are pretty accustomed to human visitors, and tend to climb and crawl all over people.
