Home La Residence is set in 10 hectares of tropical gardens off the beautiful Bay of Befotaka, on the north coast of the island Nosy Bé, the largest island in an archipelago located off Madagascar’s west coast.
Home La Residence lies roughly 30 kilometres directly north of Nosy Bé’s old colonial capital Hell-Ville and is surrounded by rich vegetation and 800 metres of golden sandy beach. The resort is made up of nine villas with thatched roofs and modern interiors. A restaurant, cocktail bar, infinity pool and stage for live performances are all also located on the beachfront. WiFi is available throughout.
Food & service
Staff at the resort are consistently spoken of as kind, friendly, and accommodating by guests. The menu is based on traditional Malagasy cuisine, though the chef’s team are happy and able to cater for specific dietary requirements and tastes. Most products are organic and purchased from the local fishery and market.
The resort’s nine villas are spaced throughout its leafy 10 hectares of land. Five apartments climb the estate’s hillsides and offer stunning ocean views, while the remaining four are situated on the beach. All bedrooms have private en suites. Each villa has WiFi, satellite TV, infinity pool, and incredible views as standard. The villas combine natural materials, such as thatched roofs, wooden floors and features, with a crisp and modern decor inside.
Colourful coral reefs and species such as sea turtle can be found within Nosy Be’s waters that are best explored through snorkelling or scuba diving expeditions. Kayaking and stand-up paddleboards are also on offer. Boat trips are available for whale-watching, big game fishing, and exploring the 15 smaller islands which lie off Nosy Bé’s coasts. On the island itself, guests can enjoy quad-biking, horse-riding, a cultural tour of Hell-Ville, or a visit to Lokobe Reserve.
Home La Residence allocates 10% of its profits to the Home Madagascar Association, whose initiatives range from community development, education, and local conservation efforts.
