Tsara Komba’s eight thatched bungalows are tucked into the lodge’s tropical gardens, where bougainvillea, papaya, and flame trees blanket the steep hillside, and frangipani, jasmine, and lemongrass perfume the air. Traditional building materials such as teak, rosewood and local sohihy wood help Tsara Komba’s airy lodges and suites blend into their surroundings, and high roofs made from the leaves of ravinala trees (also known as the “traveler’s tree”) provide natural ventilation that helps keep rooms cool. The surrounding tree canopy gives shade as well as privacy.
Private terraces and outdoor living rooms look out over the ocean, providing sensational views from sunrise to sunset. Inside, Madagascan antiques, furniture, and objets d’art by Malagasy artists and craftmen add authenticity and character. Bath products incorporate Madagascan essential oils, and fine linens were crafted in country as well. The absence of televisions, Wi-fi, and in-room telephones protect the sense of tranquility. All accommodations also include mosquito nets and coils, fans, a safe, and fresh flowers.
Immerse yourself in Malagasy culture during a 12-night getaway. Discover sacred islands and rare wildlife, and picnic on the catch of the day on a secluded beach. Stroll fragrant plantations; soar over limestone spires on a private helicopter tour; and snorkel a dazzling marine reserve. On a trek through the forest, spot lemurs and butterflies; then unwind with an al fresco massage using essential Madagascan oils. Try line fishing on a pirogue canoe; and enjoy a private candlelit dinner set to live dance and music. Package not available in February.
