To begin with, the two most important things to know about Anjajavy are these: first, if you are thinking of going, do not delay – go now. Second, however long you are thinking of staying, stay longer.
It is hard to explain just how wonderful Anjajavy is. Not only is it in a beautiful location, but the service and facilities are equally top-notch. It is a credit to all involved. Such attention to detail is evident right from the moment of arrival, when resident manager Cédric meets guests coming off the light aeroplane from Antananarivo. It continues throughout the stay as Aina, the guest relations manager, and all other staff ensure that your stay is as close to perfect as it possibly can be.
As mentioned, the setting is truly beautiful and you will have no trouble spotting the sifakas most probably within minutes of your arrival. The beautifully kept grounds are home to a great many of these wonderful creatures.
We were very pleased with both the food and the service and have no complaints about the selections available or the portion sizes. Seafood meals were always particularly good.
The accommodation is very comfortable and is kept spotlessly clean, with great views over the beach and out to sea. We stayed in villa number two, which is located at the far end of the resort. It was very peaceful and private. Being a bit fartherflung than the other villas, there was an absolute minimum of foot traffic and it really did feel very much like we had our own little bit of paradise.
For something special, the picnic in a private bay (or crique) is highly recommended. You will have a great lunch freshly prepared for you and then a beautiful beach all to yourselves for the whole afternoon – a great way to pass a day at Anjajavy! Even if you don’t opt for the picnic, do consider doing the crique-en-crique walk. It’s an easy walk along the clifftop and takes you to each of the five stunning little bays along the way.
For us, Anjajavy was a very definite highlight of a great trip to some amazing destinations. The only shame was having to leave and we were very disappointed that we only had three nights there. In out opinio, for a great mix of relaxation, sightseeing and wildlife spotting in a truly beautliful spot, would be five nights would be a good minimum stay.
