Nestled on the Quirimbas Archipelago off the northern coast of Mozambique lies Anantara Medjumbe Island Resort untouched and tucked away. This African island hideaway measures just one kilometer long and 300 meters wide. Innately intimate, the paradise island boasts lush vegetation, which frames the softest of white powdery sands and azure waves that blend seamlessly into the horizon.
Naturally exclusive, Anantara Medjumbe Island Resort offers a luxurious sanctuary perfect for unforgettable gatherings, intimate weddings or special occasions for the whole family, or just you and your significant other plus friends. This island can accommodate up to 24 guests in 12 luxury villas, each with its own private plunge pool boasting endless views of the mighty Indian ocean. Here, you will get the chance of a lifetime to (really) soak up the African sun on a selection of picturesque beaches, private villa pools or at the oceanfront resort pool.
And regardless of your taste buds, there are some nice personal chefs on hand to cater to your breakfast, lunch and dinner menus. From Mozambique’s bold flavors, European classics that hail from colonial Portugal to a nod to the finest global fair and flame grilled ocean treasures, dining at Anantara Medjumbe Island Resort will leave you with a taste that will be hard to shake off.
The Anantara Medjumbe Island Resort Sunset
While at the resort, don’t forget to enjoy the mesmerizing sunsets with a sumptuous feast on the beach or while you sail away on a sunset dhow cruise. You can also take dhow sailing lessons (you never know when you might need the skills) or a more active holiday approach by partaking in a selection of non-motorized water sports activities.
Anantara Medjumbe Island Resort is part of the Quirimbas Archipelago, which is a dazzling string of island jewels off Mozambique’s northern coast. It is part of the Quirimbas National Park, renowned for its immaculate coral reefs, and whale, dolphin and dugong populations, as well as mangrove-covered colonial-era ruins, reclaimed by Mother Nature.
And with the island at the heart of a nature reserve, every care has been taken to respect the environment. Resort buildings are designed in tribute to the breath-taking surroundings, with sustainable natural materials used wherever possible. Recycling and conservation efforts ensure you take sublime memories and leave nothing but footprints on the pristine beaches behind.
Be In Your Own World
This precious feeling of being in your own world is conveniently accessible with a 45-minute private helicopter transfer from Pemba International Airport, reached with a comfortable three-hour flight from Johannesburg’s O.R. Tambo International Airport.
