About Nosy Be
The origin of this Nosy Be island’s name is uncertain. According to legend, the first name was Nosy Mamiloma.
Nosy means ‘island’ in the Malagasy language, and mamiloma ‘to help one’.
The first people to arrive on the island were starving boats men. After they had set foot on shore, they found plenty of food and this helped them to survive, and so named the island Nosy Mamiloma – the island that helps
Your Island Paradise awaits:
The house reef of the Resort we stay at on the Island is 400 meters from the Lodge and over a kilometre long. It is not only excellent for scuba diving, but also for snorkelling. Some snorkel spots and beaches are best visited with a pirogue (a traditional dug out boat). Or take a kayak out in search for the sea turtles that are right in front of the Lodge during high tide. You can also discover the island on foot with a guide. For those who would like to relax, try a massage at the Zebu Zen center.
The Lodge has 11 bungalows in total. Four, large bungalows and four, smaller bungalows. One family bungalow with direct access to the beach. Lastly there are two (non self-catering) villas situated right on the beach.
All bungalows have a private bathroom with shower & toilet, hot water, fans, and mosquito nets.
The total capacity of the Lodge is 33 guests
The Lodge has its very own ‘House Reef’ which is over a kilometer long, and around 400 meters from the lodge.
On the reef there is a large population of green sea turtles accompanied by lots of species of tropical fish. The reef is also home to a large diversity of coral, which makes the snorkeling experience even more special. Free mask, snorkel and fins available at the dive cente
