The hotel is built in traditional style with local materials. Dry stones from the region adorn the building walls and the frame is made up of Katrafay round wood and other essences from the southern part of Madagascar. The entire roofing is composed of a double layer of vondry (a traditional Malagasy fibre) with metal sheeting inserted in the middle to ensure waterproofing.
