Greg has set up a lovely place on Baie de Sakalava. Must be one of the best places in the world to learn to kite-board. Consistent wind and warm water. And waves at the reef when you get a bit of experience. Greg is a great host and speaks good English. Nice vibe in the evenings with everyone eating together....

Everything is good about this place. Bungalows are just terrific. At the beach, with doors and windows facing towards the lagoon. Food was good - fresh and tasty. Vibe is excellent - you do not have to worry about anything. Staff is helpful - does not speak much in English, but that is not an issue. Owner is very easy...

We had an awesome 10 days at Sakalava Lodge. The owner Greg is really friendly and helpful, but also totally laid back. The kiting instructors are also great, really helpful and knowledgeable - learning here would be really safe. The spot itself is ridiculous, flat at low tide but with some great waves at the entrance to the bay if...

The wind conditions are very good at this spot for this season, the ocean is warm and you also have a very nice wave spot at the outer reef there! The accommodation was very nice, especially the seaside bungalow and with Greg...

First of all, the owner over the Sakalava lodge, Greg, is the most friendly and easy going person I've met in years. Besides Greg the staff is so kind and friendly all the time. Last June, my girlfriend and I stayed over in the Sakalava Lodge after 2 weeks of travelling trough Madagascar. Because we both work for a Dutch...

I've spend 3 weeks in Sakalava Lodge and everything was perfect. I learn how to kite in the amazing spot (calm water, small tide, always some wind) with a great teacher Rémi (Madagascar kite champion for the second time in 2014). I stayed in the sweet lodge on the beach, spacious, including a bathroom inside and a terrific view on...

We are just back from 10 days at Sakalava Lodge, and it was a great and restful (for the mind) vacation. Our routine was: Sleep, Eat, Kite. All 3 were great. This resort is in the outback, cute bungalows (see pic), either just of the beach or in second line. All the crew is super nice, food is simple but...
