luxury hotel in madagascar

From the captivating capital of Antananarivo to the serene landscapes of Anjajavry, Wayfairer curates once-in-a-lifetime honeymoons that dive into Madagascan culture.

Often referred to as the ‘Eighth Continent of the World’, Madagascar is located off the east coast of Africa and is the world’s fourth largest island. Home to the famous lemurs, a kaleidoscope of singing birds, migratory humpback whales, dolphins and turtles, it is one of the most biodiverse countries on earth – around 80% of its thousands of species cannot be found anywhere else. Offering a fascinating background mix of African, Austronesian, European and Arab culture, remarkable wildlife and rainforests encircled by powdery white beaches, Madagascar is the ultimate natural paradise and off- grid destination.

“Wayfairer Travel has been tailor making innovative honeymoon itineraries for years, and today couples are seeking more off beat, previously unexplored destinations. Madagascar offers everything for a honeymoon without being one of the ‘major’ honeymoon hot spots.” Says Jason Stevens, CEO of Wayfairer Travel.

As champions of slow, more immersive travel, the Wayfairer team encourages guests to embrace more remote destinations without having to compromise on the quality or luxury of their journeys.

Absorbing the capital city Antananarivo’s hidden treasures and beautiful architecture will occupy the guests’ first day, before spending their first night in Maison Gallieni, a restored colonial mansion with an elegant mix of modern and traditional décor. Located on a hill in the historic heart of the Malagasy capital, it offers a spectacular view overlooking the town.

The following days will take guests to the northwest coast city, Anjajavy. Here they will stay at the enchanting and opulent Anjajavy Lodge. The lodge’s 25 duplex rosewood villas have private decks overlooking the ocean and meals are served on the beach.

Wayfairer guests can enjoy a variety of customised activities during their stay in Anjajavy strolls through Madagascan forests spotting nocturnal lemurs and exotic birds, a visit to the cave of the Sakalava (home to an underworld of stalagmites) and walks along the picturesque Giant’s Causeway and the King’s Alley.

For the more active couples, Madagascar’s varied and exotic landscape offers travellers snorkelling and scuba diving opportunities on the deserted beaches along the Anjajavy peninsula and meeting the newly reintroduced Giant tortoises as well as quad biking around the island or simply lounging in the infinity pool.
