Situated on the south-west side of Nosy Komba by the village of Anjiabe, Jardin Vanille is a small, owner-run lodge set on a lush green hillside, overlooking the sea with a very pretty view out over the bay.
The lodge has 8 simple wooden bungalows built using methods used in many traditional Malagasy houses. The lodge is keen to blend in with the environment and this is reflected in its simplicity. Each room is well ventilated and has a terrace from which to enjoy the gardens and sea view. Lemurs are often seen playing around the lodge. The rooms have en-suite facilities and hot water. There is also one large suite room ideal for honeymooners.
The restaurant has a splendid location and offers fresh fish and local produce. Swordfish, lobster, crabs and shrimps are all recommended! Diving, snorkelling straight from the beach, and a variety of activities across the island can be organised including to the nearby marine island reserve of Nosy Tanikely. You will also find a trip into the local village of Anjiabe very interesting and will certainly receive a warm welcome.
