As our first holiday without the kiddies and celebrating our second honeymoon, we had a few prerequisites for our much-anticipated getaway. We said no to crazy time zones, yes to white fluffy beaches, yes to delicious local cuisine, and yes to reconnect and fall in love all over again.
At this point, stop what you’re doing, type in ‘Giltedge Ocean Islands’ and look for Constance Tsarabanjina Madagascar.
From here on in, Lylie and her globally efficient team ensured that every expectation of our travel experience was not only met but far exceeded.
We arrived in Madagascar with porters waiting, taxi running, boats idling and the island staff warmly waving us aboard their sandy paradise.
Tsarabanjina was quite literally postcard perfect.
My husband and I spent the sunsets looking at the horizon in absolute awe of its vast beauty. On one particularly still morning, we were treated to three dancing manta rays in the crystal-clear waves of the outgoing tide.
The resort’s hospitality was strikingly efficient yet totally invisible. The family of staff were clearly fueled by the many thousands of nighttime stars. They run a seemingly endless operation with attention to detail and a level of proficiency that epitomises barefoot luxury and will provide you with an island experience like none other!
The bar area provided a vibey hub for socialising, board games, drinks and panoramic views. The bath-like temperature of the ocean provided us with the most spectacular snorkelling, diving, swimming, kayaking and fishing.
The only disagreement that my husband and I had on this holiday was about how soon we could come back again!
We cannot recommend this spectacular destination enough. It left us with overflowing hearts and refuelled love tanks. It is quite simply a slice of heaven on earth!
