Constance – where family and luxury go together

Take time to reconnect with those you love most with a holiday in paradise in one of our luxurious villas.

Family villa

Spacious family villa, Halaveli

Having the luxury of space, your own garden, plunge pool and villa master gives you the perfect combination of independence to do your own thing, while having 5* services right on your doorstep.

Travelling long haul with your family at least once is part of the magic that holiday memories are made of. Once you arrive, here’s a glimpse of what you can expect.

Meal times at Constance

Have breakfast together on your own terrace, laze in the sun while the kids play in your own private pool and let the villa master take care of everything.

Then dine out with all the family, or enjoy a cosy dinner at ‘home’, prepared to any special requirements you have by our chefs.

We’ll even look after the kids with our in-villa babysitting service so that you can enjoy that rare pleasure of a drink or dinner shared without any interruptions.

Activities for all the family

Barefoot luxury as Constance Tsarabanjina reopens

Tsarabanjina is the sort of castaway island that travellers dream of finding. With the doors again reopen at the resort following a major refurbishment, guests are discovering that we’ve introduced a few more luxuries to make it all the more comfortable while retaining the barefoot charm of the place.

Constance Tsarabanjina, Madagascar

Beach at Tsarabanjina

Off the beaten track, this unique island get-away already enjoys a loyal following with its reputation as a place to escape from it all – a place that perfectly captures the mood for a simpler take on luxury.

Beach villas

Careful to maintain the barefoot charm and eco-friendliness, while embracing Malagasy culture, interiors have been updated using natural materials and local art and sculpture based on marine life to create a boutique feel to the beachfront villas.

What’s on offer at Tsarabanjina

Lose yourself to the quiet sound of the sea, enjoy a massage on one of the beautiful beaches, fish for your supper, watch the sunset from your beach villa while enjoying a cold glass of something or simply lie back in your hammock and take it all in.

For anyone looking to indulge in a more active holiday, diving here is second to none.  The Mitsio Archipelago has been recently classified as a marine reserve. There are dive sites here that have barely been explored by anyone before.

And if you’ve never snorkelled before, our experienced guides will give you a short introductory session in the lagoon before taking you on your first snorkelling excursion to discover the underwater species in this part of the Indian Ocean.

Discover Madagascar

Our team will take you on a guided nature walk where you can discover more about the endemic species of Madagascar, and take in the awe-inspiring panoramic views from the top of the hills.

We also run full moon cruises, excursions to local landmarks such as the volcanically formed Organ Pipes, trips to a deserted island or local village and more.

And then of course, there are the Lemurs. Enjoy a boat ride to the Nosy Komba’s reserve where you can feed and interact with these friendly creatures.

All inclusive Cristal package

At Tsarabanjina, we have introduced our popular all inclusive Cristal package so you don’t have to worry about a thing once you’re on the island. You can find out more about what’s included in the Cristal package at Tsarabanjina on our website and read why The Sunday Times names Tsarabanjina and Moofushi in world’s best 20 all-inclusives
