These far-flung islands between Mozambique and Madagascar offer simple stays that let nature do the talking.

Dramatic black-lava rock breaking through the white sands and limpid waters around the magical islands of Comoros, off the southeast coast of Africa, is typical of the contrasts they conjure up. Whether you like secluded beaches or deep forests, swimming with humpback whales or waking early to watch turtles lay their eggs, you’ll find it at this Indian Ocean archipelago between Mozambique and Madagascar. To help plan your stay, here’s our pick of the islands’ best hotels.

Océanis Hotel

From $65 Per night per room

Ideal for a quiet family stay, this little blue-and-white seaside hotel is set a little outside the centre of Mutsamudu, the capital of Anjouan island. Like many of the hotels on Comoros, the rooms are simple, but you can’t beat the great location for relaxing on the beach, wandering narrow streets lined with shops, restaurants and eager raft sellers, and exploring the deep-water port and ancient citadel built by Abdallah Ben Mohamed El Masseli in the 1780s.

For an authentic island experience, look no further than one of these 14 simple thatch-and-eucalyptus-wood bungalows fringed by palms and the nearby small restaurant big on local fare. You’re a short walk from Plage Itsandra, one of the prettiest beaches on Grande Comore, plus the charms of the island’s capital, Moroni, with its early French and Islamic buildings and friendly traders, are just a short drive away.

From $184 Per night per room

The Moheli Laka Lodge is one for the adventurous; reaching the 10 rustic bungalows will take a boat or plane ride, followed by a two-hour drive through the jungle. However, the journey is worth it, as friendly staff set everything up for you and welcome you with great warmth to their isolated slice of paradise bordering a marine nature reserve. Snorkel with turtles and manta rays off a colourful reef, and feast on local fish and ice cream made fresh each day. Also, fellow hotel guests include Mohelian lemurs so tame that they’ll eat from your hand.

    These five rustic bungalows lie deep in the forest below the extinct volcano of Mount Combani, which makes for a great hike. However, you can spend happy days just hanging out in a hammock among the trees, interacting with the woolly brown lemurs the locals call maki and joining the French-born owner in a yoga class. Her home-baked bread and papaya jam are sensational.

    Les Baobabs

They will lay on activities, such as a day with a fisherman, who will take you to secluded small isles and beaches. When you get back, they’ll whip up a planter’s punch on the terrace.

    Retaj Moroni

    Hotel
    3.5/5 (36 Reviews)

    The Retaj Moroni makes for an ideal stay in Comoros’ capital. Its 55 comfortable rooms and suites have everything from high-speed internet to satellite TV (not always guaranteed on these far-flung islands off Mozambique). The pool, overlooking the sea beside tangled mangroves, is even more of a surprise. The hotel also has a lobby lounge serving coffee, tea and juices and the Moroni Restaurant, specialising in local and international fare.
