Had the most amazing kite surf stay at Greg's Sakalava Lodge during the last two weeks (begin of April). Although it was not yet the wind season, I had 10 out of 12 dqys with excellent conditions for kiting. The Lodge's bungalows are designed in African style, simple, effective, with intelligent solutions in detail, and very comfortable. All you need for a brilliant stay in a windy place after a hard day at the seas is there - wind sheltered location of the lodge, huge trees protect from the sun, could even leave my kites pumped outside. Greg's service team doesn't leave you with an open need, everybody is really friendly - nearly like family and the kitchen does an excellent job french malagasy style. Would immediately go again if I could find the time ! Will go there again for sure.....
Greg has set up a lovely place on Baie de Sakalava. Must be one of the best places in the world to learn to kite-board. Consistent wind and warm water. And waves at the reef when you get a bit of experience. Greg is a great host and speaks good English. Nice vibe in the evenings with everyone eating together. Food is very good and quite varied especially for the remote location. Rooms fairly basic although ones near the beach look a lot nicer and probably worth the extra cost
First when we arrived we immediately noticed the calm this place radiates, very beautiful landscape and perfect conditions to do kitesurfing. Me and my friends stayed at this place for 9 days and every day was full of wind, world-class catering and great atmosphere at this lodge. The service was superb and the staff very friendly and very happy to make you feel good during your whole period of stay. In general, this is rather isolated place, but if you like, the close-by city Diego Suarez is 40 min ride away and offers great entertainment in the night.
