Our visit to Anjajavy came at the end of a three week visit to Madagascar. We'd built our hopes up that this would be a perfect place for some R&R as well as seeing unique Madagascan flora & fauna. From the moment we arrived to the time we left, it exceeded our expectations.
The hotel is professionally managed but remains friendly - the staff were all first class and tried constantly to make our stay enjoyable.
The rooms (chalets) are quite luxurious, very well located and have a/c and very nice bathrooms. It was very hot while we were at Anjajavy so we spent quite a lot of time in our room during the heat of the day - or on the little private terrace.
The restaurant was excellent and they made great efforts to cater for dietary requirements - their wine list was also quite impressive (for Madagascar). Breakfast was a real delight - sitting on the veranda looking out across the square with its fringe of palm trees with much bird life - particularly a little flock of love-birds.
We did several walks during our 5 day stay - excellent guides and interesting things to see including mangroves, several snakes, crabs, many flowers, baobabs etc.
One highlight was a "sundowner cruise" which gave us chance to sip a local cocktail while gliding round the nearby bay watching the sun set.
Another highlight was a boat trip up the coast to a very interesting bay where several different birds were seen as well as some very beautiful coves / crags with baobabs and other amazing flora.
We will have to return as we didn't have time to take advantage of the special "private" romantic lunch on one of the many beaches as well as other delights Anjajavy has to offer.
