If you’re rich and ambitious, the five-star resort of Miavana sits on your own private island of Nosy Anko, high in the North East corner of Madagascar, our world’s Red Island. The kitesurfing around this entire area is unique and epic with 95% reliability, regular and consistent trade winds year round, and absolutely no crowds!
Keep your wanderlust alive, as you can reach this slice of wild heaven by an awe-inspiring 20-30 minute private helicopter ride from the northern airport of Diego Suarez, soaring up over one of the biggest natural bays our world has ever witnessed, then over Nosy Longo, a sacred island in the shape of Sugarloaf. It doesn’t get more exclusive than this. The blues, greens and turquoise colours underneath you mark the crystal clear Emerald Sea and Indian Ocean that you will ride for days on end – you have arrived at your destination of Nosy Anko.
In the deep blue around Nosy Anko and Miavana, you will find a flush of coral reef protecting the sandy base and a deep continental shelf perfect for other water sports, all included in your stay!
Dotted along the pristine beach, Time + Tide Miavana’s 14 villas are a masterpiece in luxury. Throughout the villas, every detail is thoughtfully designed to create the ultimate luxury experience. The one, two and three-bedroom guest sanctuaries offer ample space (minimum 450 square metres), a private pool overlooking the sea, a comfortable lounge, butler service and a well-stocked kitchenette. Each villa has an extra bathroom and a study, which can be converted into a children’s bedroom.
Miavana is an ecological hub, set on a biodiverse volcanic island just off one of the most unique destinations on our planet. Madagascar. Exploring land and sea are a must during your stay at this lavish hotel, spotting lemurs and chameleons in the thick jungle bush, heli tour over the island or take a day to scuba in its protected marine jungle. If you want to spend time on the mainland, then all we can say is DO IT! Baobabs, caves, jungles, wildlife – this is an unforgettable destination of adventure and diversity surrounded by breathtaking mountains, deep caves, networks of mangroves and ultimate wilderness.
From mainland Madagascar to its unique and isolated islands, your transfer is provided by the Miavana eco lodge themselves and available to guests. (Well, we said exclusive, and we meant it!)
