About Miavana

Miavana quite simply sets new bars of what to expect from a beach lodge in the Indian Ocean. At odds to other accommodation options, Time & Tide Conservation have created a property of the highest standards of luxury which at the same time is firmly linked to its location. This is not just another luxury beach destination, but a project of ambitious proportions hard to comprehend.

The villas are set along the powder white sand of the Indian Ocean on the tiny island of Nosy Ankao on the north eastern coast of Madagascar. Vast villas the size of beach houses are set with a low profile amongst palm trees on the end of the beach. Bedrooms feature four poster beds with billowing mosquito nets and there's a bathroom to get lost in with indoor and outdoor rain showers. Expansive sitting areas flow from interior to the private pool deck running the full length of the villa.

Each villa features a butler's pantry with a fully stocked and equipped kitchen. The mini bar is certainly not 'mini' and the location options for in-villa dining could keep you busy every day of a week!

The main area of the lodge continues the attention to detail seen in the guest villas. There's a buzzy cocktail bar with rooftop viewing deck, the relaxed 'pizza' restaurant is full of colour with sand floors and vibrant furniture. Tucked back from beach is the cabinet des curiosités featuring an extraordinary collection of Madagascan 'objets'.

Location

Nosy Ankao is a tiny island off the north-eastern coast of Madagascar. There's no reason you would know anything about this little island, there really has been nothing to know about it until Time & Tide decided to get involved with Thierry Dalais, the backer behind North Island. The awesomely ambitious project has resulted in a property that's hard to access but on arrival worth every effort it took to make the journey.

How to get there

Access is strictly by helicopter, such are the logistical challenges. All materials in construction were slowly ferried between Diego Suarez, the nearest major town and the island by barge. Diego is for most the access point to the island with domestic flights arriving from Tana on a daily basis. The alternative is via the international airport at Nosy Be served by South African Airlines and Ethiopian amongst others. From Diego it's a 25 minute helicopter flight, from Nosy Be it's 45 minutes.

When to go

Madagascar experiences a cooler, dry season from May through to October when the wind blows from the southeast. This is replaced by a hot and humid period. The different seasons have a big impact on the experience when it comes to certain experiences such as diving and fishing. Do not travel to this amazing destination at a time of year that does not suit your interests!

Important Information
