Everything about Doany shouts perfection on a plate. From being picked up in a private speed boat, to arrival in your own exclusive beach, shared only with the local kids, chickens and dug out canoes! You could not ask for a better place to relax and soak up the ambiance of Madagascar. Every detail is thought of and more by...

Continuous attention to detail made a memorable week! Accommodation was in an atap roofed bungalow with a solid block built bathroom and hot water. Comfortable bed with mosquito net and view of the sea. Wonderful food beautifully presented - three course lunch and dinner or a delicious BBQ on a different island. Cocktails were tourist prices but BYO alcohol was...

I don't often write reviews but after our stay at Doany beach felt I should ( although maybe I should keep this little paradise to myself??!?) Stayed with husband and 4 friends and could not have asked for a better place to unwind after a week of cycling from Tana to Foulpointe. As detailed in the website you really do...

There are so many good things to say about Doany Beach. It is located on a beautiful beach sheltered from the tourist hustle and bustle of Nosy Be by the Lokobe Lemur Reserve. In fact, if you stay at Doany, you will be the only tourists there, as the guesthouse consists of just one bungalow (which is why the place...

We spent a 12 days intensive holiday at Doany Beach in beginning of October. We experienced some well arranged excursions to a variety of places and smaller islands around Nosy Be. The timing was perfect in the sense that we almost always came to the location before the other tourists and hence felt that we were the only visitors. The...

We spent two full weeks on this beautiful beach. Bungalow, service and food beyond expectations. We loved the feeling of isolation, but also that a motor boat was at our total disposal! Great scuba diving with Nosy Komba diving centre, interesting walks with locals, and explorations by boat (the best beaches ever, Madagascar would deserve a much better reputation and...

We stayed a week with Alix during our honeymoon on Nosy Be, and can't recommend Doany Beach enough. Alix only takes one set of guests at a time, in the bungalow next door to his own, so everything is catered to your specific requirements and desires. The setting is absolutely unbeatable - effectively a private beach looking directly out over...

We stayed with Alix a few years ago and I must say I have nothing but praise for his operation. One guest at a time made us feel very special and catered to. The food was excellent and the location private- very private, just like an island getaway should be! Thanks Alix for a very memorable time. We'll be back!...

We had a really lovely (and unique) stay with Alix and Marna at the end of a pretty exhausting trip. It was exactly what the 4 of us needed - R&R with superb hospitality and super food. Alix makes some pretty mean cocktails too - we leant very early on to forget the menu and let him do his thing!...
