Whether it’s due to its castaway charm, understated luxury or idyllic location and fascinating biodiversity, the private island Constance Tsarabanjina has always lured travellers to return.
From the moment you arrive on Tsarabanjina and you’re greeted by barefoot staff and our general manager wearing a sarong you’ll sense that this is a luxury resort unlike any other. And by the time you’ve reached your palm-thatched villa, kicked off your shoes and settled into your own secluded hammock with views over the sparkling Indian Ocean you’ll begin to understand why.
The pace of life on Tsarabanjina is one of easy relaxation away from the hustle and bustle often associated with modern living.
There are no televisions broadcasting 24-hour news, no Wifi (outside of the main building) bringing emails full of urgent requests, instead watch the local Mitsio fishermen pull their wooden boats up on to the sand and deliver fresh seafood for that night’s dinner.
Take a bottle of wine down on to the sand and watch the sun setting over the water before strolling up the beach to the restaurant to enjoy local food caught fresh or bought daily from the market on neighbouring island Nosy Be.
For a truly unique island experience you can even try your hand at traditional Madagascan net fishing, hand your catch over to our Madagascan chefs and they’ll cook it for your supper.
With only 25 villas scattered across two beaches the luxury of Tsarabanjina is the luxury of seclusion.
The modernised, air-conditioned rosewood villas are tucked into the treeline above the beach, each out of view from the others creating the impression of castaway solitude.
Built from local sustainable materials the villas embrace this Crusoe-charm with sculptures and furnishings created by local artists and craftspeople from driftwood and other natural materials.
Even our spa stays true to our castaway spirit with luxury massages available on a bed on the rocks above the ocean at sunset or in the shade of our palm-thatched treatment room followed by a shower hewn into the rock of the island itself.
