Le Renala is a quaint, comfortable lodging with cute little beachside bungalows that look like they are out of tropical romance novel. It is well located on a beautiful white sandy beach, facing west, so perfect for postcard sunsets as the colourful dhows sail past.
The very satisfactory food was served at their own restaurant/bar which, while rudimentary, was full of charm, and the "Three Horses" beer was always cold and served by the glamourous Suzanne.
Le Renala is also a useful location for booking local tours and activities. The area is renown for the huge Baobab trees after which the hotel is named. Le Renala has a two star rating, but don't let that put you off.
