Anjajavy Hotel

Tucked away from human civilisation, cloaked in forest and stone and fringed by deserted beaches, the Anjajavy Peninsula is home to a magical hotel that goes by the same name. Comprised of 24 villas crafted out of timber and thatch, accommodation at the Anjajavy Hotel is decidedly simple yet luxurious. All guest villas face the sea and have large canopied beds and generous soaking tubs in the bathroom.

As befitting of a Relais & Chateaux property, the Anjajavy Hotel’s onsite restaurant offers delectable cuisine that can be served under cover or out on the sand if so desired. Meals can also be enjoyed in “The Oasis”, a veritable Garden of Eden filled with luxuriant tropical foliage harbouring all manner of exotic endemic bird and wildlife.

Guests have privileged access to seven pristine creeks on the Anjajavy Hotel’s 750-hectare private nature reserve as well as to glorious white sandy beaches steps from their villas. There is also a 200m saltwater infinity pool. Guided walks through forest and tsingy (limestone pinnacles) are possible as are explorations of caves and local villages. The ocean is another playground, offering snorkelling, canoeing and water skiing.

There are no roads leading to the Anjajavy Hotel so the only mode of arrival is by air. A private plane can be chartered from Antananarivo’s airport; flying time is approximately 1 hours and 40 minutes to the Anjajavy Peninsula.
