This luxury lodge sits on a stretch of pristine beach on the remote island of Nosy Ankao.
Part of a privately owned five-island archipelago, Nosy Ankao lies off Madagascar's northern shores, a region of astonishing marine biodiversity. Set on the island's western side, Miavana offers panoramic views over the pristine white beaches and gin-clear waters.
A collection of one to three bedroom villas boast uninterrupted views of the ocean through floor to ceiling glass, and offer plenty of space with indoor lounging areas and a study, as well as an outdoor shower.
Indoor and outdoor dining areas and a well-stocked wine cellar can be found in Miavana's main lodge, along with a pool and bar.
Step from your private deck directly onto the beach, to spend afternoons strolling along the unspoilt sands, snorkelling in the shallows or diving the aquamarine bays, lagoons and exceptional reef encircling the archipelago, as part of the hotel's guided 'Blue Safari' excursions.
Deep-sea fishing, as well as turtle, whale and dolphin spotting are also on offer. Indulge yourself with a soothing in villa spa treatment after a long day out on the water, or venture further afield to catch glimpses of Madagascar's world-famous lemurs on intrepid forest rambles on neighbouring islands.
