Excellent place! Nice people, great service, quite, comfortable, clean. Many possibilities from the Eco-lodge: diving, snorkeling, whale-watching, trekking… but definitively the best was the people in charge of the diving centre (Nathalie and Allan) and the the ones in charge of the lodge. The best option in Nose Be!

We did four dives in two days with Sakalava and we couldn't be happier with them. Nathalie and Alain, the owners, are very nice and helpful people, as well as their support staff. The diving center is right on the beach, next to Vanilla Hotel, which is convenient if you are staying there. It should be noted that they have... More

Nathalie & Alain are some of the world's best dive guides in the world. Not only are they great at finding the small stuff such as nudibranchs and sea horses but they are also so passionate about diving that it is a sheer delight to go diving with them. I did 10 dives over 5 days and each morning I... More
