Relais du Masoala

Maroantsetra, Madagascar

The beachside oasis of the Relais du Masoala, set under the shade of coconut palms on the Masoala Peninsula, has a delightful “end of the world” feel to it. Crafted by local artisans, the charming thatched-roof garden bungalows with wrap-around verandas feature en suite baths and blend in perfectly with the environment. There’s a small pool that’s great for a cooling dip.
