Following the analysis and visit of an explorer from Village Monde in 2016, the Hôtel Solidaire Mangily has obtained the Label Village Monde in the category Comfort. The Hôtel Solidaire Mangily is now part of a solidarity and exemplary tourism destinations and initiatives network.
Village Monde is a charitable international organization whose mission is the promotion and implementation of projects in support of the development of a network of village tourism and solidarity tourism, in the world’s most remote and isolated villages, by adopting a strategy of participative intervention on the ground.
The Hôtel Solidaire Mangily has been evaluated on its sustainable contributions to the community, socially, economically and environmentally. By investing all the benefits in educational projects of the NGO Bel Avenir, the hotel benefits directly the local population. This evaluation focused on the quality of accommodation and hospitality, proposed activities, respect for the environment, authenticity and pride. This process has resulted in the labeling Village Monde which is a true guarantee of quality for the traveler and a distinctive mark.
The Hôtel Solidaire Mangily has been already awarded by TripAdvisor with the Travelers’choice award in 2014 and 2015, and then the Certificate of Excellence in 2016. The hotel has also been awarded “Quality” and “Sustainable” by the Federation of Hoteliers and Restorers of Madagascar (FHORM), and has just recently won once again the Travelers’choice price of TripAdvisor for 2017. With the “Comfort” Village Monde’s label, the Hôtel Solidaire Mangily confirms its commitment to the development of Madagascar, especially in the south-west of the island, in this year declared as the International year of sustainable tourism for development by the United Nations.
