Miavana Villas, Miavana Private Island, Madagascar

With Madagascar's history created from a rich tapestry of diverse human immigrants and unique and endemic animal and plant species, it's only fitting we reflect this in the design of our island paradise. The natural elements of water, sand and air merge elegantly with luxurious interiors unique to Madagascar and local stone and palm branch bring texture to every corner of the Villa.

Strung out along the island, every Villa has direct access to the white sandy beaches, turquoise water and coral reefs. The colours of the sand, wood and water have been brought inside the Villas and appear in hand dyed curtains, hand crafted chairs, and light fittings resembling old glass buoys.

Every 1, 2 and 3 master bedroom Villa has their own kitchenette, lounge, private deck and pool overlooking the Indian Ocean and Madagascan mainland in the distance. Each Villa also has an ensuited study which can be turned into a child's bedroom for up to 2 children under 18.

Use your Villa's electric buggy to traverse the island and transport you to the Village Piazza, Aquatic Centre and Beach Lounge.

  • Every Villa has ocean views and direct access to the beach and water
  • Snorkel in coral beds in front of your villa
  • Scuba dive reefs with no name - be a pioneer
