Where to stay:
An exhilarating helicopter ride over mountains, baobabs and shipwrecks dotting the wild coastline ends in a gentle landing on a remote private island off the coast of Madagascar. Miavana is located on the largest of five islands in a remote archipelago off the northeastern coast of Madagascar. Flawlessly designed to offer both unity and privacy, the Miavana Piazza offers several dining areas, a glittering infinity pool overlooking the ocean, a well-stocked wine cellar and bar, a curated Boutique and our Cabinet de Curiosities, where you can marvel at the treasures of Madagascar. Be sure to stop in and see the butterfly collection, an extinct elephant bird egg, pygmy hippo skeleton, antique manuscripts, ancient armour and amulets – among other rare finds. You can enjoy thrilling adventures, exploring the region with scuba diving, snorkelling, fishing, kiteboarding, ocean safaris, a variety of water sports, lemur trekking, quad biking and helicopter excursions. Combines brilliantly with the wilds of South Luangwa and Lower Zambezi Park in Zambia for a superb safari.
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. The grasslands, vine-strewn woodlands and karst ridges of the estate are surrounded by mangroves and tsingy, which naturally lend it the character of a protected reserve. Recognized by the most eminent scientists as an inestimable, unique treasure of biodiversity and by ecology organisations as a shining example of sustainable conservation, this private reserve protects plants and animals which are as yet unknown to man.
So, escape your winter climate and visit one of the spectacular Islands for a Summer Break now!
