Top 5 reasons to go to Tsarabanjina in 2013

Discover a world still untouched on the remote island of Tsarabanjina, just off Madagascar.

Constance Tsarabanjina, Madagascar

Beach at Tsarabanjina

Lonely Planet lists Madagascar as one of the top 10 countries to visit this year.

‘For visitors the time to go is now, before the country reappears in travel agents’ windows. Be prepared to be overwhelmed.’

Here are our top 5 reasons to visit Constance Tsarabanjina when it reopens in March after major refurbishment.

1. The ultimate in Crusoe Chic

Indulge in the peace and seclusion of a resort unlike any other. Constance Tsarabanjina combines a laid back, barefoot lifestyle – the general manager comes to work in a Madagascan sarong – with the luxury you expect from Constance Hotels & Resorts. Air-conditioning in the beach huts, a new spa and a deck specially designed for stargazing are among the new features.

2. Nature

Explore a country like no other and see things you’ll see nowhere else on earth thanks to the island’s evolutionary isolation. Madagascar is considered one of the most biodiverse places on the planet so it’s no surprise that Brian Cox visited here to film his latest Wonders of Life series for the BBC.

3. Perfect beaches

Dine on the beach at Tsarabanjina

Walk in sand undented by the tread of tourism. Tsarabanjina’s stunning beaches offer seclusion and privacy to its guests whether its for laid back sunbathing, sharing a bottle of wine as crabs scuttle past your feet or a massage on the beach at sunset.

4. Diving

Feel the exhilaration of diving in areas off the north-west coast of Madagascar that have never been explored by divers before. Be the first to discover stunning reefs, sunken wrecks and a raft of marine life which paint the ocean with vibrant colour.

5. Food

Savour the taste of fish pulled from the ocean that morning cooked with the freshest Madagascan spices, fruit and vegetables all sourced from the local market.
