Located on the mainland opposite the island of NOSY BE on a stretch referred to as Baobab Beach and accessed only by boat, the lodge offers a secluded and exclusive location.
The lodge offers wonderful accommodation in luxury safari style tented rooms, each positioned under a traditional thatched roof. Each spacious tent opens up into a large solid built bathroom section, which includes a hot water shower area, flushing toilet and washstand with basin. The bathrooms open to a private terrace with a massage table. To the front, each has its own balcony with seating area, where one can relax and enjoy the view. Each tent is fully equipped with a king bed, mosquito nets, mini-bar and safe.
There is a large open sided thatched restaurant and bar, which also has a relaxing lounge area overlooking the beach. The menu is set with 3 choices for starter, main, desert and accompaniments. The food is freshly cooked with produce from the organic garden.
There is a small water-sports centre, which can provide snorkelling equipment as well as sea kayaks, hobbiecats, pedalos and windsurfing boards free of charge.
The waters in front of the lodge are clear and offer good opportunities for snorkelling. Green and hawksbill turtles are regularly seen in the mornings often just a few steps from the beach. The forest to the rear of the lodge is home to a number of lemur species including black lemurs and these can often be seen in the trees behind the rooms and restaurant in the late afternoons and early evenings. Guided walks can be taken into the forest behind the lodge and also to the small Malagasy village nearby.
Restaurant, air conditioning, Wi-Fi, mini bar, safety deposit box, private massage room, mosquito nets and a water sports activity centre onsite.
Black lemurs are particularly common in the lodge grounds during the day. At night Pariente's fork-marked lemur, northern giant mouse lemurs and occasionally even aye ayes enter the lodge grounds along with hedgehog tenrecs. A wide range of reptiles including colourful day geckos, panther chameleons and snakes also inhabit the forest around the lodge and green and hawksbill turtles feed on the seagrass just off the beach in the mornings. Birdlife includes Madagascar starlings, white-headed and hook-billed vangas and Madagascar hoopoes and excursions to the nearby Nosy Tanikely Marine Reserve offer a wealth of tropical reef fish, more turtles and Madagascar flying foxes.
Excursions to Nosy Tankely Marine Reserve and Nosy Be, snorkelling and scuba diving, village visits, kayaking, windsurfing.
Rise early to snorkel with the turtles when the sea is at its calmest.

Amazing setting, lovely to approach it by boat! Really friendly team of staff and attentive host. Tented accommodation was romantic and immaculately kept. We are glad we saw [Eden Lodge]!
