Lodging and package hotel-diving

Free transfer by boat or car toand from all of the following hotels. Those recommended are located on either on Ambondrona Beach, where the diving centre is located, or else on  Ambatoloaka – Madirokely beaches, just the other side of the hill separating the bay, which is where all the “NosyBe activities” are to be found. If you want to be at the heart of the action, that is the place to be. If you prefer a quieter place, albeit close (5-10 minutes by local taxi , day :0.5 € night 1€ ) to the restaurants and bars, then opt for Ambondrona .

On Ambondrona beach (nearest to the diving centre)  :

Nosy Lodge: Our favourite ! A charming small hotel on the beach-front, which also boasts a good restaurant. And it’s literally 10 feet away from the diving club! but don’t worry, you won’t hear the compressors!

Tropical Paradise : room 30 €, good value for money on, giving directly onto the beach, you are almost in the water!

Le Palm Beach :  4-star hotel on the same beach as the Centre. An attractive though large-scale structure; an Italian-owned resort with all the activities associated with a club.


Manga Be Residencial Village : also just next to the diving centre, several attractive houses and appartments directly on or just behind the beach, with cleaning and cooking services included.

Just a little bit further away :

The “Hauts Manguiers” Residencial Village the same style of accomodation as the previous address, a 5 minutes walk away from the Diving Centre and the beach. A magnificent villa, with a swimming pool; 3 or 4 rooms, excellent value for a groupe of 6 to 8 people.

Chez JJ et Euphrasie :   Mélinda’s (wooden) chalets  : also good value.


Several villas are available for rent on Ambondrona Beach, often with several rooms. This can be a very competitive solution for small groups of divers (6 / 8 / 10 people).


On Ambatoloaka – Madirokely beach. (The boat will pick you up and drop you on this beach).

The Senga: our favourite ! Very small hotel, with just five rooms, for small budgets. Good value for money and a nice atmosphere.

L’Heure Bleue : an attractive hotel, comprising standard and luxury bungalows, which also has a very good restaurant.

Zahir Lodge :  an attractive hotel 20 metres away from the beach.

Valiha hotel : an attractive hotel giving directly onto the beach.

The Belouga :  another small hotel for small budgets, directly on the beach.

The Sarie Manok : the most elegant hotel in the area, located in the heart of the village, with a restaurant and bar. The beach-side restaurant is also highly recommended.

The Royal Beach Hotel : this very large structure is an Italian and Polish resort.

Chez Benjamin : just outside the village, for those with a small budget who do not want to be far from Ambatoloaka. Good value for money.

The Etoile Blanche : a modern hotel on the sea-front. No restaurant.

Gérard et Francine : one of the first hotels to open in Nosy Be; correct (on the sea front).
