Anjajavy Beach Getaway

4 days from £1635pp plus international flights.

This is the tropical ocean paradise you've seen in your dreams! Azure blue ocean stretches out into the distance in front of you, water gently lapping on the sand beneath your balcony. All around you are gardens, full of fragrant flowers, bewitching hummingbirds and brightly coloured birds of paradise...

But you're not dreaming! This is Anjajavy, a peninsula and reserve on the north west coast of Madagascar. It's remote - you can only get here by plane - and completely unspoilt. Not that you'll have to rough it - far from it. The lovely hotel here offers all you need without encroaching on nature. You'll be staying in a villa made from local rosewood with all creature comforts.

By day you'll be able to explore the reserve, walking through the forest looking for lemurs and chameleons, discovering creeks and deserted beaches and meeting locals in the nearby village. There are watersports enough for the most ardent water-lover, and a spa villa where you can indulge in a therapeutic massage. Add to this some of the freshest seafood you'll ever find - the crab and Madagascan prawns are especially good - and you have all the ingredients for a perfect beach getaway. It's simply too good to resist!

DAY 1: FLY FROM TANA TO ANJAJAVY

It's an early start for your beach getaway. You'll be collected from your hotel in Tana and driven to the airport for the 90-minute charter flight to the Anjajavy peninsula. You'll be well away from any crowds in this remote and beautiful location in the northwest, accessible only by private plane. Your home for the next 3 nights is Anjajvy l'Hotel, the only Relais & Chateaux property in Madagascar. Leaving your bag in your villa, go for a stroll along the long, sandy beach, try a lunch of succulent Madagascar prawns or crab. You might even have your first glimpse of lemurs, as they can sometimes be seen from your room, or while you're having tea in the garden! Dinner     
Explore Anjajavy Reserve

DAY 2: ANJAJAVY

Wake up in paradise! Gazing from at the azure waters of the Mozambique Channel from your terrace you can contemplate the day ahead. The hotel is set 550 hectares of private, unspoilt reserve where rosewood and baobab trees shelter lemurs, chameleons and birds of paradise. You can take a walk, with or without a guide as you wish, to explore this pristine environment, taking in caves and creeks. In the afternoon why not take it easy by the beach, sunbathing, snorkelling or enjoying a tranquil catamaran cruise. Round off your day with a gorgeous dinner under the stars on the terrace or maybe on the beach. Breakfast, dinner
Enjoy a spa treatment at Anjajavy l'Hotel

DAY 3: ANJAJAVY

Today you might want to take time to visit Anjajavy village, meeting fishermen as they return with their catch, watching women skilfully embroidering material and, of course, getting a warm and rousing welcome from the children at the school. The hotel is closely involved in a number of village projects and this visit is an uplifting way to begin your day. Back at the hotel, cool off with a swim in the pool and let yourself be pampered with a massage in the spa villa. Suitably refreshed you can take a walk in the oasis gardens, designed by Parisian landscape gardener Camille Muller, before sundowners and dinner. Breakfast, dinner

DAY 4: FLY BACK TO TANA

This morning you'll enjoy a leisurely breakfast before being transferred to the airport for the charter flight back to Tana. You should get some fine views of the peninsula as you depart. If you want to extend your time in paradise (who doesn't?!) we can arrange extra nights for you. Breakfast
