Famata Lodge Experience nature - in an euphorbia forest directly at the beach

At the Famata Lodge, you will meet unusual people who made their love for nature, family and pleasure their first priority. Here, you arrive and feel at home - directly at the beach, in the midst of a diverse vegetation. Julia and Peter Schachenmann-Razafimanga look forward to welcoming you at their Malagasy-Swiss eco lodge.

Bungalow & Rooms at the Famata Lodge


You sleep above the treetops, relax with free view of the sea, or enjoy the peace in the midst of the vegetation: Each one of the 13 bungalows has its own character - and offers, of course, a shower with warm water, solar electricity and mosquito nets.

Restaurants at the Famata Lodge


The kitchen, gathered around hostess Julia, only serves freshly prepared meals. The flavours of mouthwatering marinades and sauces are well-known beyond the region. You can expect home-made specialities from Switzerland and Madagascar.

Sailing, diving, hiking: nature experiences on the water and in the countryside.


Whether on water or land: the team is looking forward to showing you the most beautiful places in the Southwest of Madagascar. A trip at sea with the hotel-owned sailing boat is highly recommended. With some luck, you will fish your own dinner!
