Madagascar Luxury has a character unique to itself. There are some very beautiful camps and lodges in existence these days and it is now possible to explore this amazing island, the world’s fourth largest – in extreme comfort!
In terms of luxury and also in terms of experience, our favourites must lie north of the island, around Nosy Be – where there are a couple of really beautiful lodges. The first is a Relais et chateaux, called Anjajavy – where one can can be as active or as inactive as one wishes and with five private beaches, one is spoilt for choice!There is canoeing here as well as seeing sifakas and tsingys – so much of what Madagascar is famous for, lies right within your reach without having to do too much travelling!
Then there is Nosy Komba which occupies a lovely island – this is a much more of a local style lodge with inimitable style and taste and amazing food. There are also black lemurs here and great snorkelling and diving. This is more of a boutique hotel rather than a resort, such as Anjajavy above.
Manafiafy is our other great choice - one of the best lodges we have ever been to and somewhere you can escape to for peace and quiet. Manafiafy has so many positives! It’s remote; it’s unspoilt; the setting is idyllic, the food is superb! You have a private beach; there’s wildlife – lemurs, chameleons etc; and adventure- whale watching, walking, swimming, fishing and surfing – and this is for families and honeymooners alike. Manafiafy is set in a bay on the coast.
