We had a wonderful time at the Riake resort,the staff were so welcoming and friendly and we were always greeted with warm smiles. A lovely, peaceful, island resort, with friendly and attentive staff. Beautiful setting, the bungalows well camouflaged by vegetation, and the villa accommodation was superb, spacious, well appointed and clean. You could watch the sun rise from the...

There is a real paradise I've been there and saw it with my own eyes!

Riake Resort and Villa was my home for one week while I made history by finding five pieces of Malaysia Airlines flight 370 debris on Riake beach. The accommodations, view, service, and meals, are excellent and the hospitality is the greatest in the world. Stay here !!!

We stayed in Riake Resort & Villa for 3 nights in June 2016 as part of our honeymoon. We had an amazing time and it was our favourite hotel by far out of all of those we stayed in whilst in Madagascar. It's secluded location meant we could relax and enjoy peace & quiet and take long walks along the...

The Riake Resort & Villa was lovely, service was great and beach was beautiful, but what really stood out was the fantastic food in the restaurant prepared by the chef Donè, a truly great chef. We traveled the island extensively and came to the conclusion the Riake is the best hotel experience on the island. Strongly recommend! Emily

Situated on the east coast of Sainte Marie this is a truly special place. The bungalows sit atop sand dunes facing out to the Indian Ocean just a few steps from a beautiful white sandy beach, whilst crashing waves lull you to sleep. The property is about 1 hour by road from the airport through pretty villages and great scenery....
