Riake Resort & Villa

Riake Resort & Villa is what can only be described as a combination of excellent hospitality and food, great service, and a spectacular location. Maurizio, the owner, is one of the most charismatic people we have met in Madagascar and his authentic Italian cooking in a wood-fire pizza oven just warms the soul.

The bungalows are very well camouflaged by vegetation, and the villa accommodation is superb, spacious, well appointed and clean. You can watch the sun rise from the luxury of your veranda (or large bed!) The resort is just beautiful and perfect for families too.

There are plenty of activities! Take one of the quad-bikes down to the beach and explore the coves near the north end of the beach. All the staff make you feel right at home. Pampered might be more accurate. There's always someone to help you with a smile!
