Time + Tide - Miavana

Madagascar has been called the land in a forgotten sea. A world of lemurs and chameleons, and a mosaic of unexplored coves, rarity is the luxury of Madagascar. Fringed by white sand beaches and sprawling coral reefs, Miavana stays true to the island’s secluded roots, creating a luxurious haven where guests indulge in our signature Miavana experience.

Discovered 30 years ago by our partner Jean Christophe, an entrepreneur and treasure hunter who believed in conserving the area, Nosy Ankao is an earthly paradise. In the forested heart of the island flowers, birds and chameleons big and small await discovery. A scenic helicopter flight welcomes you to the wonders of northern Madagascar as you make your way to Nosy Ankao and Miavana.

With one of the most sublime views in the world, it will be hard to leave the multitude of relaxing spaces and head out on one of the day's recommended activities. 



With Madagascar's history created from a rich tapestry of diverse human immigrants and unique and endemic animal and plant species, it's only fitting we reflect this in the design of our island paradise.
