The Nosy Ankao archipelago is found on the north eastern coast of Madagascar. The islands are generously served with the fresh and warm Indian Ocean currents and protected by the reefs which surround them.

The largest of the four islands, Nosy Ankao, is 3.5kms from the mainland with gorgeous views of the ocean as well as the picturesque foothills and mountains of the north eastern Madagascan mainland.

Miavana lies on the island of Nosy Ankao (Nosy means Island in Malagasy), the largest of the five islands making up a reef-protected archipelago to the north east of teh mainland. Architects Silvio Rech & Lesley Carstens (designers of Miavana’s sister camp, Normal Carr Safaris’award-winning Chinzombo, in Zambia) have created Miavana, meaning to reconcile, which blends barefoots beach luxury and historic European renaissance style.

Anjajavy Le Lodge : Unique art de vivre, unique environment

Anjajavy le lodge is the only Relais & Châteaux  property in Madagascar and ranks as a four stars plus establishment. It is ideal for the most demanding eco-tourist.

Anjajavy Relais et Chateaux

Anjajavy is the best place to sample all that Madagascar has to offer: you’ll be able to experience many of the highlights and attractions of this beautiful country in one place.

Cédric de Foucault, Maître de Maison, presents the property:

” Home to lemurs, chameleons, tortoises, humming birds, cocoa, vanilla, ylang-ylang, papyrus and carnivorous plants; Madagascar is one of the last remaining unspoilt oases on the planet. There are virgin forests, savannas and tiny islands to explore. The nature is so rich that the famous Parisian landscape architect Camille Muller was inspired to gather the rarest species in the hotel’s landscaped garden. Located in a nature reserve, Anjajavy l’Hôtel consists of a beautiful ensemble of rosewood villas scattered over a long sandy beach on the Mozambique Channel. Explore deserted creeks, little fishing villages and the Tsingy, coral remains sculpted by erosion and overlapping baobab roots. “

 The 550-hectare reserve surrounding Anjajavy Le Lodge offers you 4 different environments:

  • A dry deciduous forest made of palissandre trees, ebony trees, baobabs and other plants endemic to Madagascar
  • A mangrove forest which is a protective coat for the reserve.
  • The tsingy: unique limestone rock formations
  • Beautiful beaches

Barefoot luxury on private island

Export-1-2

Discover the luxurious castaway experience of the newly refurbished Constance Tsarabanjina. Enjoy the laid back, barefoot elegance of this intimate eco-friendly resort set on its own secluded island off the coast of Madagascar.

Situated in the north-western part of Madagascar, at about 40 miles from the island of Nosy Be, Tsarabanjina is one of the islets of the Mitsio Archipelago. Fringed by white sandy beaches with extraordinary birds, lush vegetation and encircled around by coral reefs, the region is bathed in sunshine all year round. Tsarabanjina is a sacred islet.

Tsarabanjina Villa Madagascar

Every villa is unique and look out on to the sea. They are built with a thatched roof and have a private terrace. Twelve villas have their bed area air-conditioned and thirteen villas are completely air-conditioned.

Constance Tsarabanjina Luxury Hotel Madagascar Room

 “Tsarabanjina” is the kind of private island to be discovered in complete tranquillity, enhanced by the soft pace of the sea and its natural surroundings. An amazingly calm sea filled with a variety of fish and crayfish. A place renowned for its diving and ideal for navigation. You can stroll around, climb up the hills and lose your way in its luxuriant vegetation. At the end of a path, you will for sure discover many birds, including the famous flycatcher of Madagascar (the emblem of Tsarabanjina) as well as a couple of fish eagles. A biologist has even come across the tiniest chameleon in the world; it barely exceeds one centimetre in length when fully grown.

The amazing staff at Constance Tsarabanjina will take care of you.
