Off the northeast coast of Madagascar, on Nosy Boraha (aka St. Mary's Island), the Princesse Bora Lodge & Spa has 20 rooms in bungalows of stone and wood, all overlooking a lagoon and its nearby white sandy beach. You can relax in the chic spa here, famous for its aromatic massages, and then appreciate the local cuisine and the wine cellar, all of which contribute to the charm of this property.
The lodge is unostentatious, with a family atmosphere, in an unspoiled tropical environment away from mass tourism. There is an outdoor pool, and you can go diving, fishing, water skiing, canoeing, or kayaking. Bicycles are on hand for island visits, while scooter rentals let you go a bit faster or further-the main town of the island is, after all, some 12 kilometres away. You can also explore the water by opting for a boat trip to watch the whales.
