Time + Tide Miavana: A Jewel in Madagascar’s Crown

By Paul Joseph

Nestled on Nosy Ankao, a secluded island in Madagascar, is an ultra-luxurious beach resort offering the very best in lavish living, with the chance to enjoy truly magical adventures nearby.

The exclusive 5-star Time + Tide Miavana resort offers private Michelin-starred dining – the perfect indulgence after embarking on excursions to some of the region’s famed attractions and places of interest.

Combining bare foot adventure and the pinnacle of luxury, guests journey to the island of Nosy Ankao, where they are greeted with open arms by the friendly staff from Miavana.

Once ensconced in your sumptuous villa, there’s no need to lift a finger. Sip on freshly squeezed juice or enjoy smoothies bursting with flavours while taking in the surrounding sights, sounds and smells.

Moments away, there is lush green jungle and the vibrantly coloured Indian ocean on the other side, with its azure waters inviting guests to swim amongst colourful marine life and effervescently coloured corals.

Time + Tide Miavana’s guest rooms, meanwhile, are highly private, extremely spacious and incorporate the stunning surrounding views of Nosy Ankao from the sea to the land.

The resort is also home to a unique ‘room of curiosities’, fit to bursting point with items discovered in the local area, including  historical oddities such as a huge skeleton of an elephant bird, and a complete suite of armour brought back from the depths of the ocean.

Speaking exclusively to Superyachts.com, Rose Hipwood, founder of The Luxury Safari Company, said: “Miavana is one of the wildest and most remote islands in Africa, an extraordinary place being rejuvenated by experienced conservationists.

“Everyone will love Miavana. There is no-one that wouldn’t find this place magical and mind blowing. You could simply go on holiday to Miavana, or pair it with Zambia which offers a direct flight from a nearby airport.”

Rooms at Time + Tide Miavana start from £2380 per person per night. To book visit www.theluxurysafaricompany.com
