Anjajavy consists of a beautiful ensemble of villas scattered over a beautiful, white beach and is located within its own private nature reserve teeming with wildlife. Spending a week there was bliss! Days were filled exploring deserted beaches, visiting little fishing villages, relaxing in the tranquil gardens while lemurs jumped in the trees above or relaxing on the beach. It was the perfect end to what was an amazing honeymoon. The staff were attentive and friendly and the service was excellent. We would highly recommend Anjajavy for anyone considering a honeymoon destination!

I don't know where to begin.... so we arrived at Anjajavy "international Airport" where we were greeted by the manager Cedric.He was so welcoming and so passionate about the hotel,the nature reserve,the country,the local people and animals that we knew we were in the right place.The hotel and the facilities are superb and the staff are fantastic.They remembered everything we liked to eat and drink and always checked that we were enjoying ourselves.It just got better and better with all sorts of surprises which exceeded our expectations. We were treated to our own private dinner in the Oasis, then there was dinner in the garden, dinner on the beach and a complimentary massage. The beaches of white sand and crystal clear water were a revelation and we would recommend a private lunch on Cirque 2. We loved the wildlife and saw the lemurs literally everyday and sometimes just outside our villa. The night walks are a must and again we saw all 4 night lemurs as well as chameleons,snakes and the hairy crabs. Our holiday here was the one we had always dreamed about... we have been thoroughly spoilt and I just can't imagine finding a paradise like this anywhere in the world. We can't thank Cedric and his team enough for spoiling us and making it the best experience of our lives.

Room Tip: We stayed in villa number 3 but I would recommend any of the villlas 1-5.

This is the closest thing to paradise we have ever visited. Service is excellent while still friendly and making you feel so welcome. Cedric is devoted to preserving the wildlife and area and doing much to replant trees etc plus help the local people.
The rooms are large and have wonderful views over the sea, often you will get the odd lemur visitor in the nearby trees.
Guides on the activities are very good.

Only trouble was we were only there 3 days - already we plan going back for a week.

We stayed here for five days at the end of a five week safari throughout Africa. The location is a little remote (which is exactly what we wanted), but it is on the beach with beautiful views of the Indian Ocean. We stayed in villa # 10, which is literally on the beach with the ocean a few feet away. The service was incredible! The general manager, Cedric was fantastic! He picked us up from their own little airstrip, drove us through the mangroves to this beautiful piece of paradise! The staff were fantastic! Very focused on customer service. I don't know how they do it, but they all knew us by name from the minute we arrived. We did many activities, the crab path hike, the caves hike, private boat rental with a picnic on a deserted island, we fished and cooked up the king fish we caught for lunch! The guides were great! The only recommendation I would have would be for them to include soft drinks, water and coffee in their pricing.

Room Tip: Stay in villa #10! Right on the beach

We spent four night here at the end of our 17 day Madagascar holiday and it was absolutely the best place to finish off our amazing trip. The setting of the hotel, the facilities and staff were wonderful and quite frankly wanted to move in.

The journey here is an adventure on its own and my husband and I were unfrotunate, and I really feel unfortunate to be in the 3 seater plane which was an experience to say the least however once we arrived the trauma of the small plane was soon history as we settled in to enjoy Anjajavy.

The staff here could not do enough to help you, the food was excellent and the rooms very well appointed with everything you need. We had a room which was right on the beach front and the sound of the lapping water was delightful.

One of the highlights was having afternoon tea in the gardens and you could just sit there and watch two or three types of lemurs come to feed and put on quite the show. Birdlife was also in abundance and we walked extensively around the grounds which always gave many opportunities to see plenty of lemurs and birds as well.

I recommend you visit this hotel at the end of a trip to Madagascar as it was by far our highlight and other hotels/areas potentially could have difficulty living up to Anjajavy. It would be remiss of me not to comment on the price, it is expensive, however you get what you pay for and you certainly do get a lot for your money and in my opinion worth every penny!!

If I could pass one comment that it could do with due to the price would be a fitness centre - that said with so much wildlife to watch I probably would never have gone!!!

Room Tip: From a flying there perspective - make sure you are not in the 3 seater plane - just a little too sm...

We stayed 5 nights in Anjajavy in September - and it was superb. One of the best hotel experiences (of many) that we have had. The location is perfect, perched on the edge of a glorious beach - the water was so clear and warm it was like bathing in a bath. Although we were there to have some relaxation at the start of our holiday, in fact the wildlife was as good as we saw anywhere in Madagascar. The thrill of being surrounded by lemurs in the trees whilst having afternoon tea in the Oasis garden remained for the whole stay, and arranged walks and boat trips were all most interesting - including a beautiful snorkel above some reefs in Moramba Bay.

Above all though the staff were incredibly friendly and attentive - they couldn't do enough to make us welcome, and were very helpful in reuniting us with some luggage we had left behind! One night we had a surprise dinner for two arranged for us in the Oasis garden - perfect!

And the food is excellent; definitely first class restaurant standard.

Whilst we were there it was quite - only two other guests for part of the stay. The hotel deserves more! Visit and be pampered!

Room Tip: We were in cabin 24 - which had its own steps down to the beach. Low numbers are furthest from the r...

Picture perfect location, wonderful service, luxury accommodation and great food. Expensive, however due to it's isolated location. A wide variety of activities from animal night walks, deep sea fishing, caving, cycling, pool and ocean swimming etc.etc. A wonderful family holiday with our children 11 and 13. We found we needed 5 days to complete all the activities comfortably. The oasis with the meandering lemurs are a treat at afternoon tea time. Night time walks finding chameleons by head lamp was interesting. We travelled in July and as such there were not many insects around which disappointed our bug hunting son. But the weather was warm enough to swim. The hotel owners and staff are very friendly and helpful. Our final night dinner was a table and lamp on the beach and the chef cooked us local mud crab at our instant request. The chef also cooked the 12kg yellow fin tuna caught by our 11 year old son that day for dinner, for us and the other guests. Nothing was any trouble and the staff couldn't have made our trip anymore terrific. Keep a lookout for George and Georgina!. The owners and manager do a wonderful job to support the local community. We left behind clothes and pharmaceutical items which we no longer needed for the remainder of our trip, which management distributes to the local people.

Room Tip: Most of the chalets are located directly over the beach, just a couple are setback from the beach.
