Constance Tsarabanjina is one of the best island lodges in Madagascar. This is a great choice for honeymooners or for that romantic breakaway or for divers wanting to explore the area’s pristine reefs.
Tsarabanjina is a 90-minute speedboat ride from Nosy Be in the Mitsio Archipelago. The resort is made up of 25 villas looking out on the sea with a private terrace built from rosewood and a thatched roof. Half of the villas are built overlooking the island’s northern beach and the rest are situated to the south of the beach. The recently revamped villas are now equipped with air-conditioning. Each villa is unique and required the name of a flower, a tree or a fish. They are comfortably sized at 45sqm and consist of a main bedroom equipped with fans, a bathroom with raw cement and wood finishes and a private terrace with spacious seating.
There is always the option of a relaxing massage in a little rustic hut perched right over the beach. If you are a thrill-seeker then catch some waves with water sports with a PADI dive centre to snorkelling, fishing, kayaking and sailing. And for the more calm activities, the boules court is a must-do.
