My husband and I spent a week at Anjajavy at the end of our honeymoon in May. We had booked the trip months before, and having read all the reviews on Trip Advisor I had very high expectations and was beginning to worry that I might be disappointed. I needn't have worried for a second as our stay here exceeded all expectations!
The hotel is set in stunning surroundings, and we never got bored of the discovering the numerous beaches and fascinating forest, and watching the sifaka lemurs dance across the lawn in front of us at lunch time. The food and service was wonderful. From the moment you wake up in the morning you are looked after so well, with the friendly staff being attentive without being too much. Every time we came back from a walk we were greeted with fresh juice, there were delicious homemade cakes and biscuits in the oasis every afternoon, and tasty snacks were bought to us as we sat sunbathing on the beach! Every day there were little surprises or activities that we loved, and as honeymooners we were certainly made to feel very special!
For me, what sets this hotel apart from other 5* luxury resorts, is the relationship the hotel has with its surroundings and the local villages, and the passion that Cedric (the manager) shows towards maintaining the delicate balance of this relationship.
I can not recommend this hotel highly enough, and I really hope that we get to come back for another holiday here in the future!
