Puma LodgeLodge in Rancagua
Facing the sea, each of the 24 rosewood villas borders the main beach of the huge private estate of the Lodge. All the villas have a spacious terrace facing the sea, a living room with a salon and a bedroom. A staircase rises to the upper floor where a rest room has been created which can also serve as an office or a bedroom for children or friends. The bathroom is equipped with a large corner bath and the toilets are separate. A silent and individual air conditioning system keeps the bedroom at an ideal temperature
Around the lodge and farther than your legs can take you, extend the 550 hectares of the private nature reserve of Anjajavy. It hosts more than 1,800 vegetal species, mostly entirely local and many medicinal plants. The tsingy, famous ancient coral remains, scatter the forest and overlook the bay. The forest sheltering rosewoods and baobabs is home to many animal species such as the famous Verreau lemur (Coquerel’s Sifaka), birds of paradise, the chameleon, the Cuvier oplure (a type of iguana)… If you are lucky, the fish eagle of Madagascar will take you to the sea and its coral reef…
Designed by Camille MULLER, a Paris landscape gardener in love with Madagascar, the oasis if the fruit of a harmonious research into all the aromas available throughout this immense territory. A veritable tropical Eden, you will discover in the oasis a wide variety of aquatic plants, papyrus, tree ferns, all kinds of climbing plants, palm trees which offer refuge to humming birds, lemurs, green kingfishers, the fody bird of Madagascar and also the rongo … A network of vaporisers enables a degree of constant humidity to be maintained and, at the hottest hours of the day, gives you a delicious sense of real coolness.
As it is sometimes difficult to choose, Anjavy Lodge has laid out and cleared the secret paths which lead to the 7 creeks: you will often be alone in this world, facing the Mozambique channel. At most there might be a few fishing boats with triangular sails crossing the horizon to interrupt your gaze. As for the beach, you won’t have to look far for it, the coral tsingys border it and it goes all along the lodge… The 200 metre infinity pool is filled with sea water… Can you make a choice for today?
In the restaurant, you can choose your a la carte menu each day, created by the chef with ultra fresh products. The discreet and efficient service staff will guard your privacy, will always smile at you, and listen to your daily adventures if you wish. Floors and walls of rosewood glide from the interior to the big terrace without interruption; a private dinner can be served to you in the oasis or on the beach if you want…
The Chef’s cuisine blends well with the requirements of nature and bio products: the fish and shellfish come straight from the sea, the Madagascar prawns are simply the best in the world, the vegetables and the fruits are brought daily by the villagers, who cultivate without fertilisers or pesticides… The creativity of the Chef harmonises all these with simplicity, refinement and a light touch!
