Le Jardin du Roy

Isalo National Park, Madagascar

Mango Opinion

An incredibly beautiful location to visit for the stunning landscape and great hiking. Perfect location for photography. The food is outstanding.

Le Jardin du Roy is a fascinating hotel that has been constructed into the dramatic sandstone rock formations of Islao National Park. Designed to blend into this stunning landscape and immerse guests in the beauty of the area, the hotel is a peaceful and pleasing place to stay. The architecture of the complex is very open, with high ceilings, spacious rooms and a focus on honoring the Isalo landscape of rocky canyons and sweeping grasslands.

Guest accommodation is spread out to afford more privacy and tranquility. There are 15 lofty rooms that feature modern en-suite bathrooms with a shower, toilet and bath, air conditioning, safes, writing desks and comfortable beds with mosquito netting. A turn down service at night will leave delicious chocolates on your pillow as a caring gesture from the staff to yourself. Enjoy a dip in the refreshing swimming pool or indulge in a spa treatment to relax and rejuvenate. Decor details in the main lodge have been created to highlight the Malagasy culture and fascinating wildlife that reside on Madagascar.

The hotel is situated at the entrance to the Canyon of Ra, which is an interesting place to explore. Isalo National Park is a spectacular area to hike amid the towering sandstone canyons and the expanses of swaying grasslands. Dotted across the landscape are palm-lined oases where many birds, reptiles, frogs and mammals reside - most notably there are ring-tailed and red-fronted lemurs, and sifakas.
