- Soanambo Hotel
At the East of Madagascar, an island bathes quietly in the turquoise water of a restful lagoon. Long ago, rich pirates had lived here in total freedom. This lush tropical garden shelters in its bottom some forests where live several varieties of lemurs as well as a majestic orchid. During the season of the love, this paradise becomes the nest of the megaptera whales, wonderful acrobats of the seas. Always, it has white beaches.
Soanambo is a luxury seaside hotel on the Sainte Marie Island. In the middle of a tropical garden of orchids and hundred-year-old trees, bungalows are dotted along the beach facing the lagoon. For the past twenty years, the Soanambo hotel has been a hotel of reference on the Sainte Marie Island, noted for its quality. The establishment has an excellent staff with well known catering facilities.
Accommodation is in a choice of Suites and Luxury rooms, which are air-conditioned or Bungalows, which have overhead fans. All rooms have sea views and either a private garden or a private terrace. The rooms are equipped with Satellite TV and a telephone for room service. Relax by the pool and enjoy the pool bar. Paddle boats or a pontoon take guests onto the lagoon or play a game of tennis. In the evening there is traditional entertainment and movies.
Saite-Marie Island has access to boats from which one can get close to the humpback whales, go deep sea fishing, snorkeling or SCUBA diving. But be advised, the island has retained its relaxed lifestyle and has been slow to commercialise. Explore the rich and beautiful history of the island by mountain bike: a past of kingdoms, pirates and trade. See Madagascar's oldest church or relax on the small outer islands and sand banks. On your walks you will discover fields of vanilla, cloves, cinnamon, coconuts and Travellers Palms, while snorkelers will find ancient wrecks, turtles, dolphins and coral reefs
