Set along the Mozambique Channel in an extremely diverse environment where flora and fauna offer a perfect reflection of Malagasy nature, the hotel comprises an outstanding complex of 25 rosewood villas facing the sea.
Anjajavy's oasis is a completely unique location and the hotel's pride. It is the result of a search for harmony through all the essences to be found in this immense country which was designed by Camille Muller, a well known Parisian landscape designer who also has a deep love for Madagascar.
The oasis is a genuine Garden of Eden, a place where you will find a vast variety of aquatic plants, papyrus reeds, tree ferns, climbing plants, palm trees that are home to humming birds, lemurs, malachite kingfishers, Malagasy foudis and even the rrongo. A grid of vaporisers maintains a constant humidity level and offers a genuinely satisfying feeling of freshness during the hot hours.
The 450-ha nature reserve alongside the hotel is home to over 1,800 floral species, most of which are endemic to the country along with many medicinal plants. Tsingy, the celebrated millennial coral remains, can be found throughout the forest and overlooking the bay.
The forest is also home to many animal species such as the famous Sifaka lemur (Coquerel’s Sifaka), the bird of paradise, chameleon and Cuvier’s oplure (a type of iguana). The Madagascar fish eagle takes to the sea and the coral reef, a magical combination of shapes and colors in a world of silence that remains untouched.
Each of the 25 villas features a large terrace overlooking the sea, a living room area and breakfast area and a bedroom. A small staircase provides access to the first floor which features a relaxation room that can be used as an office or children’s/guest room. The bathroom boasts a vast bath with separate lavatories. The rooms are air-conditioned.
Although there are no specific child care facilities, children are most welcome at Anjajavy l'hotel. Food and meal times can be adjusted to suit younger guests and babysitting can be arranged for those that require it; it often provides a nice break for parents.
Facilities include a fantastic swimming pool facing the ocean, a restaurant and a bar. The excellent chef will not fail to impress with an international menu of fresh produce with just of touch of Malagasy specialties. There is a boutique which offers a wide range of Malagasy handcrafted and beach articles.
Activities include 4-wheel drive or boat trips as well as many guided walks to explore the reserve. There is plenty to do on or in the water including water-skiing, windsurfing, snorkeling, canoeing and beach volley ball. Deep sea fishing trips can also be arranged.
