Miavana is an ultra-luxury lodge on the private island of Nosy Ankao off the northeast coast of Madagascar.
There are very few places in the world yet untouched by the tourism industry, but the Miavana resort offers an untouched and unparalleled adventure marked by its wildlife offerings, pristine Indian Ocean setting, and collaborative conservation practices.This is Madagascar’s first 5 star eco luxury accommodation.
Surrounded by vibrant coral reefs and the Indian Ocean’s spectacular maritime wonders, Miavana consist of only 14 one-, two-, and three-bedroom villas strung along the island’s western pure white beaches. Reaching nearly 5,000 square feet in size, these palatial villas have been perfectly designed by Silvio Rech and Lesley Carstens of Seychelle’s North Island and Zambia’s Chinzombo fame and will allow guests to step directly onto the powder-soft sand from their private decks to enjoy spectacular panoramic Indian Ocean sunsets extending to the far contours of mainland Madagascar.
The main “plazza” or village has many attractions from the glittering infinity pool and rooftop bar, to your choice of private dining in the beach pizzeria, lounge or Italian-inspired grotto and cellar.
With one of the most sublime views in the world, it will be hard to leave the multitude of relaxing spaces and head out on one of the day’s recommended activites. The island itself is surrounded by a pristine reef offering superb snorkeling and diving opportunities, as well as whale and dolphin watching, deep-sea fishing beyond the reef, jet skiing, kite surfing, helicopter flights, and more. The resort’s “blue safari” comprehensive guided water activities provide fascinating insights into the surrounding ecosystem as guests explore the aquamarine bays, beaches, lagoons, and channels of the archipelago.
With its wild beaches, sumptuous accommodations, world-class amenities, and incredible water adventures, Miavana really brings a new level of luxury and design to Madagascar and the Indian Ocean.
