We like staying at non-tourist type hotels/bnb/resorts. We like the less common places, because we enjoy the tranquillity and beauty of the surroundings. We really enjoyed our stay at Anantanaka. This place had a rustic island cottage charm to it. We were the only guests at the time, so it was perfect for our family of 5 (with 3 teens). Our kids enjoyed the beautiful pool and our island type cottage was very clean and comfortable. Going into town was easy by booking Grab Taxi. The staffs very helpful and had welcoming smiles. They made us fresh breakfast every morning we were there. We would come back, again!
