Part of the prestigious Relais & Châteaux network, Anjajavy is the quintessential desert-island idyll. The guest villas are luxurious, with polished wood, fine linen and their own private terrace. There are myriad activities – snorkelling, swimming, guided walks through the forest and to local villages – many of them free. Massages, fishing and boat excursions are also available.
The hotel leases 450 hectares of native dry deciduous forest and protects it as a nature reserve. A three-day minimum stay is required; transfer is by private plane from Antananarivo.
