A remote luxury beach resort of two-storey villas.
The hotel stands beside the beach at the end of a peninsula that extends into a wide bay in the Mozambique Channel. It is a remote and exceptionally beautiful coast, with sandy coves and turquoise waters. The hotel borders the private forest reserve of Anjajavy protecting a plethora of unique wildlife.
Accommodation & Facilities
The 25 air-conditioned, two-storey villas are built of local rosewood and roofed with satrana leaves. Each is equipped with a large bed, sitting area, breakfast corner, bathroom with oversize bath and shower and separate toilet. Upstairs is another room with two single beds, plenty more storage space and a work surface. Amenities include tea/coffee facilities, a fridge, a safe and a variety of lighting.
French windows open onto a large sea-facing veranda, furnished with armchairs and a hammock from which you can watch the lemurs in the trees or the fishing pirogues on the ocean.
The main lodge houses a comfortable lounge, the bar and billiards table, the television room and the main restaurant, though many meals are taken outside on the decked area that runs the length of the main building. The main building looks out across the lawn, usually littered with parakeets, to the 200 metre squared pool and the Indian Ocean beyond.
The pool has a large sun-deck with sun-beds and parasols and the long, sandy beach in front of the villas is great for swimming and relaxation; deck-chairs and shades are provided at discrete intervals.
A second beach is geared towards water sports, which preserves the tranquillity of the villas and the beach in front of them. The marina is a short walk from the lodge.
Most meals at Anjajavy are served outside

You can walk through the mangroves at low tide, through the forest populated by Coquerel's sifakas and a variety of bird species, to the Sakalava fishing villages of Ambondro Ampassy or Anjajavy.
