Le Paradisier consists of comfortable, rustic bungalows built of stone and reed thatch, and is an ideal place to relax or go diving after your wildlife holiday.
The bungalows’ balconies and verandahs are cooled by natural sea breezes and fans (there is no air-conditioning and electricity is generated by solar energy). There is an infinity pool with deck chairs and umbrellas, or you can languish on Ifaty's golden beach, lined with palm trees, watching local fishermen in their traditional pirogues go about their business.
The area offers a variety of habitats such as forests of baobab trees and mangroves where you can walk botanical trails and go birding to see the likes of couas and vangas. Activities include everything from kayaking and scuba diving to horse riding and fishing aboard a well-equipped boat. Whales are seen occasionally.
Hotel le Paradisier is located 29 kilometres north of Toliara airport, along a sandy track.

The spiny forests near Ifaty are of great interest to birdwatchers and botanists alike. The area includes two of the island’s most threatened birds; the long-tailed ground roller and sub desert mesite. You will also find bizarre flora such as spined octopus trees, a sharp contrast to the ancient baobab trees.
Madagascar’s wildlife is its main attraction, however the island also boasts a beautiful coastline and idyllic offshore islands. Relax in seclusion and style and enjoy the friendly relaxed Madagascan way of life, while continuing to enjoy the island’s biological richness.
