The Zahir is divided in two sites, one at Nosy Be, one at Nosy Iranja. Both are not huge hotel complexes, but cosy places where you feel great and relaxed. All the staff members are very friendly and helpful. We had the chance to spend 12 days on Nosy Iranja Island, and we were not bored for a second! Swimming,...

The hotel is beautiful, right by the beach with a selvage ambiance. Integrated in nature and quiet. The terraces and rooms are very nice. It is a bit far from the center, but right at the nicest beach. Only when it rains the road might be a bit tricky. The food is good, but the service is slow. There was...

I am describing our experience at Le Zahir on Nosy Iranja. The lodge is made of six bungalows located on the east end of Nosy Iranja’s beach, where the mangroves begin. It is very close, almost inside the local village of fishermen. Iranja is made up of two small coral islands connected at low tide by a strip of sand,...

Very friendly staff, although English is very difficultly understood. Rooms are exceptionally hot although there are ceiling fans. Luckily the swimming pool proved to be a saving grace. The beach is lovely with small bars and restaurants all along the shore.

We stayed for one week over Christmas with our two adult sons, so had two rooms. The rooms are well equipped, clean, and full of local art and craft items.
