As you step onto the soft sands of Miavana, the romance begins….

From the first sight of whales gliding through the azure waters, as you head to your island paradise by helicopter, to the first sighting of curious lemurs peaking through the trees — falling in love with Madagascar’s wildlife is as easy as it is captivating.

Explore Madagascar’s Enchanting Biodiversity

Madagascar’s island paradise beckons with its extraordinary array of wildlife, reflecting a unique evolutionary history shaped by its isolated geography. Here, amidst the Nosy Ankao archipelago, nature unfolds in a breathtaking spectacle of biodiversity, boasting a remarkable diversity of plant and animal species found nowhere else on Earth.

From the charismatic lemurs to the peculiar chameleons, Madagascar’s wildlife captivates with its uniqueness. Witness critically endangered hawksbill and green turtles nesting on our shores in December, their hatchlings bravely embarking on their maiden voyage to the sea in April. Venture to Nosy Manampaho between May and October to witness one of the Indian Ocean’s largest nesting tern sites, home to tens of thousands of migratory birds—an awe-inspiring sight indeed.

The island’s diversity extends even to its smallest inhabitants, such as the brookesia chameleon, the tiniest reptile on earth and they are endemic to Madagascar, adding to the allure of encountering this unique species.

Beyond its fauna, Madagascar’s landscape is adorned with iconic baobab trees, spiny forests, and lush rainforests, each contributing to the island’s ecological richness. The baobab trees, known locally as “Reniala” stand as majestic sentinels across the Malagasy terrain, some reaching heights of over 30 meters and living for centuries. These ancient giants not only serve as symbols of Madagascar’s unique ecosystem but also play crucial roles in local folklore and traditional medicine.

Settle in to the warm and comforting embrace of Miavana as you listen to the wind rustling through the leaves, allow yourself to be enchanted by the island’s natural wonderland, each moment capturing your heart a little more as you explore our private island paradise.

My week long stay at Miavana was unparalleled in almost every aspect of luxury. Defining luxury not only in terms of great quality and exclusivity, but in terms of craftsmanship, consciousness and a unique enriching experience. The richness of the culture set the context for such unique environment, and is the pillar of every impressive distinguishing feature of Miavana.

Miavana will exceed your expectations. We traveled to Miavana for a week and had an incredible experience. The weather was perfect, the staff was attentive and there was enough activities on offer to keep us busy (honestly we could have stayed an extra week). The island is also home to a group of crowned lemurs which were amazing to see!
