Palissandre Cote Ouest

Morondava, Madagascar

Bronze price level

Mango Opinion

This location is great as just a one night stop as besides the Avenue of the Baobabs there is not much to do from this hotel. However, spending one night to view the sunset in the Avenue in the Baobabs is a huge highlight.

Ideally located on Nosy Kely beach, Palisandre Cote Ouest Hotel and Spa welcomes you to the region of Menabe. Morondava, Menabes capitol city, will surprise you with its friendly people, beautiful landscape and glowing sunsets over the sea. The most famous site to see is the Avenue of Baobabs where the iconic trees tower along each side of a wide pathway - an especially spectacular site to see silhouetted at sunset.  The sunset hour offers a unique view through pink and blue reflections that rise on the horizon.

There are 30 bungalows that combine comfort and local materials from Madagascar - granite, rosewood, local artisan crafts and traditional Mokotry roofing. They are spacious, en-suite and all have a private terrace with sea views in each room. You will find air conditioning, mosquito nets, a mini bar, and a hair dryer and satellite TV. Palisandre Cote Ouest's restaurant Lakana Taste takes you on a journey to discover the delicious local Malagasy cuisine - you can savor a world of flavor in a moment of pure culinary pleasure. The hotel also offers a pool next to the bar and restaurant, a nice place to cool off and relax.

Highlights of this region include; Avenue of Baobabs, Dry Forest of Kirindy, Bemaraha Tsingy, or a day spent with the people of Morondava. Other activities include kayaking, beach volleyball, tennis, boat tours of Belo Sur Mer, and fishing, some at additional cost.
