Petit Relais Lodge sits in an idyllic location, on a pristine white sand beach on the north shore of the Bay of Antongil. The eight spacious bungalows and restaurant overlook the beautiful bay, with the rainforest covered slopes of Masoala National Park riding behind.

The detached bungalows are built from local materials that blend harmoniously with the surrounding. Seven bungalows each have two queen-sized canopied double beds, with one bungalow having one king-sized double bed. All have large ‘open-plan’ bathroom / showers and open verandas looking out to sea.

The lodge is situated right next to the main trail leading into one of the best areas of Masoala National Park and both red ruffed and white-fronted brown lemurs are often seen and heard from the lodge. The beautiful beach and warm crystal sea offer superb relaxation and swimming after trekking in the rainforest.
