My husband and I spent 9 days at Anjajavy Hotel end May, early June and the weather was perfect - around 30 degrees with a lovely breeze most days. The sea was warm and the pool a perfect temperature as well. This hotel has a most beautiful location in a natural reserve which allows one to observe the local wildlife (including lemurs) and birdlife with ease. Dailly walks are organized with well-informed guides which makes the excursions enjoyable and interesting. As for the hotel, Cedric (the manager) as well as the rest of the staff, make every effort to ensure that you are comfortable and enjoying your stay. Their attention to your personal needs is outstanding. We found the food very enjoyable - the fresh sea food in particular. The hotel is in a very isolated spot yet the chef manages to provide interesting (yet simple) flavoursome food on a daily basis.The oasis is a magnificent natural garden which allows one to observe the birdlife and lemurs, and in our instance, a snake, on a daily basis.
As with all hotels, sometimes things go wrong, but the staff are so attentive to any problems that the inconvenience is minimal eg the water pump went early one evening but was repaired overnight, no mean feat given the hotel's isolation. However, it is Cedric's and the staff's response to any difficulty which makes this place unique. In our case, we were offered a free massage as compensation which was very enjoyable.
We would strongly recommend this hotel for anyone looking for a unique escape from the pressures of daily life. Anjajavy is a very special place: literally in a time zone of its own (they have Anjajavy time which is one hour different to Madagascar time) which extends the day and allows one to observe wonderful sunsets around 6pm when we were there. We enjoyed every aspect of our stay there and wish to thank Cedric and all the staff for their kindness and attentiveness which together with the hotel's unique location make this a very special place to go too.
