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

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.

Fast track to fitness with Isabelle Lamant

Fitness guru Isabelle Lamant has built up a loyal following of fans since joining Le Prince Maurice late last year, empowering guests with her exciting approach to getting fit and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

Here she talks about what makes her approach so popular.

Isabelle Lamant at Le Prince Maurice

I’ve been working at Le Prince Maurice for five months now and it brings me great pleasure. Teaching my classes here brings me a feeling of real happiness.

Here’s some more about the training I offer guests visiting the resort. Each week I hold:

  • Hatha and Ashtanga yoga classes on the beach
  • Aquagym in the lap pool
  • Tone up, stretching, special abs and glutes classes
  • Zumba circuit training

All of these programs are good for both health and body shape with some guests saying they feel like they’ve visited a health camp during their time with us.

Don’t worry about your fitness levels or your previous experience because I adapt my classes to suit everyone from the beginner to those much more experienced.

Yoga at Le Prince Maurice

During my yoga class we practice breath control and asanas (posture) which improves strength and flexibility. Then the restorative aspect of the session is a delightful way of giving prizes to our muscles after a hard workout. You will learn relaxing postures you can do every day wherever you are.

Toning classes and personal training

My tone-up classes will really help work every muscle in your body. Together we will tone-up abs, glutes, arms, back and legs, stretching them to sculpt a beautifully balanced body. I will even show you a routine you can do at home to carry on the good work.
I also offer personal one-to-one training to work specifically the areas your body needs. Sessions can be carried out in the fitness centre, in your room or even on the beach.

I look forward to seeing you soon for your stay at Le Prince Maurice, a place for well being and health.

Isabelle.
