Step aboard our boats and cruise the waters surrounding the island. Enjoy a sunset cruise, explore the archipelago, stop off for a picnic or snorkel, or just relax and enjoy the ride. On blue safaris with us, you can spot dolphins dancing in the wake of the boat, or migrating whales breaching from July to September.

Find your balance on the Indian Ocean. Miavana’s calm waters provide the perfect training ground for stand-up paddleboarding, offering an all-round workout and beautiful views above and below the translucent water. For something different, try a scenic paddle through the mangroves or SUP yoga in the shallows.

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 the resort.

Miavana will exceed your expectations. We traveled to Miavana for a week in early December 2018 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. I got my PADI open water scuba certification during our stay and the coral at the dive sites was incredible!
