Best island in the world? Say no more.

Rarity is the luxury of Madagascar, the land of forgotten sea and Miavana stays true to the island’s secluded roots with its white sand beaches and sprawling coral reefs, creating a luxurious haven where guests can enjoy our signature experience. The ultimate destination for modern day explorers, the resort brings together world class luxury in a world of rare wildlife and extraordinary landscapes.

Fringed by white sand beaches and sprawling coral reefs, Miavana is a haven of luxury at the ends of the Earth. Relax into the barefoot ease of Nosy Ankao, where life is measured in the rise and fall of the tides.

With local, hand hewn stone, Malagasy wood and hand dyed textiles in shades of turquoise, we immerse our guests into the island setting. With the freedom to explore as you want, you will inspire the mind, awaken the soul and reconnect with nature in a thrilling and meaningful way.


Dotted along the pristine beach, the resort’s 14 villas are a masterpiece in luxury. Natural elements of sea, sand and air meet elegantly through inspired interiors and textures that celebrate the extraordinary island setting. Hand-dyed textiles mirror the endless shades of turquoise shimmering in the ocean views.
