Overview of Le Relais de la Reine

Beside the village of Ranohira, Le Relais De La Reine seamlessly blends into this Colorado-esque landscape. Towering sandstone canyons and lush vegetation create an ideal atmosphere for travellers seeking a retreat from the outside world. Inhale the freshness of nature while spotting endemic avian species and colourful critters exploring the surroundings.

The lodge is a stone’s throw away from the most visited reserve in Madagascar, Isalo National Park, with its expansive plateaus, dry deciduous forests, and palm-lined oases. A visit here is a journey back in time, evoking the essence of a prehistoric era. The hotel boasts granite architecture camouflaged into the bliss of sandstone hills and grassy plains. Providing exclusive tropical sundowner experiences against the backdrop of the Canyon amidst the sunset.

Adventures at Le Relais De La Reine are as breathtaking as the environment itself. Whether you’re a couple seeking a romantic Malagasy experience or a family looking for a fun getaway, there is something for everyone. Enhance your stay with a majestic exploration of the grassy plains on horseback or venture into the canyons on a guided mountain biking tour. For those seeking more thrills, summit the canyons on a Via Ferrata.
