Leaping Lemurs, this place is Awesome!
Near the city of Diego Suarez, in the northern part of the main island is where you’ll find the Mantasaly. The resort is a luxury hotel in a land of natural beautiful and pristine and untouched natural surroundings.
Down a long and winding sand road drive the view opens up to a large resort. Although there are only 32 suite, the property is spread out over acres and acres of land. The décor of the property is stunning. A mix of local design, European detail and an exceptional eye for color, décor and style. Local artwork is mixed in with beautiful wall art and paintings and bursts of color in geometric shapes.
The style and comfort continues in the guests rooms which are comfortable in size with bespoke furnishings and bright and fresh colors.
The dining experience is excellent with a friendly chef who is happy to have his guests order off the menu or he can create a meal based on the guest’s preferences. Fresh fish and seafood is skillfully prepared in local style but with gourmet preparation and technique.
This is an active resort with so much to do and see in the area from taking excursions to a nearby island or jungle exploring in the nearby national parks to see lemur and all kinds of exotic wildlife.
First and foremost, the resort is about water sports and in particular kite surfing. This is where lovers of kite surfing who are also at a stage in life seek our luxury accommodations and not a surf tent can enjoy the best of both worlds. I understand that during the season the winds are constant between 20 and 30 knots and are ideal for people who have kite surfed around the world. The resort has all the equipment and facilities for the novice to expert kite surfer.
The resort sits on a massive bay and a barrier reef, so the water and waves are generally smooth. There is not another resort or and development for miles and miles away. Its like they have their own private ocean and there are miles and miles of coastline and mangroves to explore.
Roxana is the general manager and could not be warmer, friendly or welcoming. Her along with her constant companion SiSi as precocious crown lemur are always about the property checking in on guests to make sure there day and trip is going well.
