After Anjajavy it’s off to , reached by private helicopter from Diego Suarez. Miavana is located on the private exclusive use island of Nosy Ankao. Madagascar’s first 5-star eco-luxury accommodation was designed by award-winning architects and built with complete focus on sustainability by a local team, using local and reclaimed eco-friendly materials. The beautiful stonework found throughout the resort was created completely by hand. Miavana means “to bring together” in the Malagasy language and the property achieves this goal by harmoniously combining the stunning beauty of the island with the exquisite villas and the island’s heritage. Days can be filled lazing in a hammock, swimming either in a private pool (one for each villa) or the clear ocean water. Kayaking, kite-surfing, and fly-fishing are also possibilities. At night spectacular sunsets paint the sky with streaks of pink, purple and orange. Staff will even set up a private sleep out under the stars if guests are so inclined.
In both Anjajavy and Miavana guests can visit the local village to learn more about their unique culture and by visiting these destinations they make a valuable contribution to their livelihood. Guests will leave Madagascar feeling completely replenished and revitalized after their stay in an exquisitely beautiful eco-paradise, exposed to fascinating new fauna and flora as well as cultural experiences. It truly is the trip of a lifetime!
