A private island paradise just off the Madagascan coast, Constance Tsarabanjina houses just 25 thatched villas set within a tropical jungle leading down to powder white beaches.
Louisa is here to help give you the inside track.
The palm thatched villas effortlessly blend into the natural surroundings, built using local timber with contemporary furnishings. Dotted along the north and south beaches, every room has a private deck with built-in day beds, leading directly to the beach.
The Aiko Diving Centre takes guests on adventures undersea to varied and spectacular dive sites, from drift dives to spot pelagic predators to shallow coral garden dives and night dives. From September to October you'll also have the chance to spot humpback whales.
Sundowners can be sipped at the beachfront bar whilst watching the sun dip below the horizon. Meals are also served beachfront, with delicious breakfast buffets (think eggs cooked to order), whilst lunch offers a vast selection of the freshest fish and scrumptious salads. Dinner is a three-course affair to be enjoyed under the moonlit sky in a true barefoot luxury stance.
A plethora of activities are on offer, from a sunset trip to the Frères islands to sports fishing. For fitness fanatics, the Aquagym, located in the sea, is a quirky way to stay fit or for the land inclined, there's a tennis court.
Why we love it
Live the castaway island life with no shoes, no television and limited wifi - but with friendly, attentive staff available for your every whim, whether it be a relaxing beachfront massage or private sunset boat trip.
