Situated on the untouched Anjajavy peninsula in north western Madagascar, this luxury lodge boasts a beautiful collection of wooden villas all facing the sparkling Mozambique Channel.

Only accessible by private plane, this remote natural paradise offers visitors a true escape. Each of the 24 elegant rosewood villas has a spacious terrace and living room, not to mention unbeatable ocean views. At the heart of the property lies the aptly named ‘Oasis’, a humidity-controlled landscaped garden where you can unwind in the midst of lush, vibrant vegetation. Spot colourful birds and lemurs who play in the canopies of the surrounding trees. 

Days at Anjajavy can be spent trying a variety of outdoor activities, from snorkeling and water skiing to fishing, sailing and mountain biking. Explore the surrounding nature reserve for a chance to encounter birds-of-paradise, chameleons, lemurs, iguanas and thousands of floral species. You can also stroll along carefully maintained forest paths to discover pretty creeks and quaint fishing villages. Between activities you can take a dip in the stunning 200 square meter pool, and dine on gourmet international cuisine – featuring traditional Malagasy dishes – at the restaurant.
