Located in Baobab Beach, a dream beach of white pure and crystalline sand and turquoise waters, it brings a really unique experience in Madagascar, where we can admire, on the same site, the main symbolic natural marvels of the country.
Spectacular and very old baobabs « put down » on the beach, sea turtles coming evering morning to swim with you, several species of wild lemurs which come down daily by tens of the surrounding forest, and magnificent and rare birds, such as the eagle fisherman or the black parrot…
Certain seasons you can share the magic of nesting or hatching of sea turtles just in front of your lodge, or being regaled by the sight of dolphins, and even migrating whales, swimming just a stone's throw from the shore.
A protected exceptional biodiversity, where forest and ocean join.
The arrival by boat in Baobab Beach (30 mn from Nosy Be island) is always breathtaking, and every day in Eden Lodge is a delight where real luxury is the discovery of this still virgin nature, and protected thanks to a minimum impact on the environment. Without forgetting the magic meetings with the people Sakavala, in the villages of surrounding fishermen.
Eden Lodges grounds extend over more than 8 hectares, with only 8 lodges, all located on the beach, to welcome you in an exclusive way.
The decoration is completly inspired by the materials and the know-how of the Malagasy crafts : it combines and diverts tradition and design. The spirit and the atmosphere of the camps of tents is present, while assuring you the comfort and the protection of a permanent lodge.
First 100% solar powered hotel in the world, Eden Lodge is waiting for your to make you share the real luxury of ecology : protect an exceptional site to offer you the best discovering, in its original state.
The eight new luxury lodges are, undoubtedly, the most beautiful and stunning rooms of Nosy Be island.

They have a large terrace, facing the sea with a stunning wiew over the bay, and were decorated by French fashion designer Frederique Glainereau who has already designed those of Eden Lodge,with the success that we know.
