La Croix du Sud is a colonial-style building designed over two levels around a courtyard garden. One of the most modern hotels and offers some of the best accommodation in Fort Dauphin. Fort Dauphin is set in a gorgeous location, with excellent hiking opportunities and some stunning panoramic views of the adjacent countryside.
The rooms at the La Croix du Sud are built in a semi-circle surrounding a green, well-manicured garden. In total there are just 20 rooms, 10 of which have showers and terraces, while 3 have no terraces, 6 have a full bathroom and balcony and the last has an additional living room. All of the rooms are equipped with air-conditioning, satellite TV, a mini fridge and a telephone. Each bedroom also has a small alcove with a couch and chairs for periods of relaxation. The restaurant is nearby at the neighbouring hotel and there will be a car available to take guests to the Libanona beach.
Fort Dauphin has an undeniable charm and it is, therefore, no wonder that it has developed into the centre of a prosperous tourist industry. The city is dominated by splendid mountain chain, the chain of Anosy and the Peak St. Louis, on the north side of the city, which offers a unique and unspoiled view of the area. On the north, east, and south the bright azure colours of the Indian Ocean take over the magnificent view. The town offers the visitor a variety of pastimes like strolling through the markets, lazing on the fine sandy beaches, enjoying the marvellous cuisine or exploring the sensational dry-forests of the surroundings.
