The management practices at Medjumbe are more reflective of a hotel half their price. Think long and hard before you commit to a holiday on Medjumbe as you could be buying off far more than you planned. Medjumbe is one of the 32 Quirimbas islands. The lodge is the island and the island the lodge. If you are looking for... More

It takes a bit of getting to, but well worth it! My wife and I went here for our honeymoon for a week in 2011, and just loved it! The beach is stunning, with a long thin stretch of sand that stretches out at one end which is the perfect spot for watching the sunset. The rooms and food were... More

We were soooo lucky to be upgraded to this island when the island we were scheduled to go to was closed for repairs from tropical storm damage. From the moment we arrived by speed boat, we were gobsmacked by the views. The rooms were gorgeous and the sea view from all of the decks just breathtaking. Food was scrummy. This... More

Perfect spot for the last few days of our honeymoon. Beautiful setting and very well designed. The individual chalets are lovely, all set on the beach. The meals were superb (for the region) - so much fresh fish. Good wine selection and regularly re-stocked minibar. Superb attention to detail both in the design and from the staff and management. Our... More

What an amazing place! We spent 7 nights at Mejumbe Island Resort, which can only be described as paradise! An incredibly well laid out lodge on a small island, hours away from anything! All the staff were just amazing, from Abu our valet to Tomi and all the waiters and barmen - always so happy and nothing was ever too... More

Wow, what a holiday! And a lot of this was due to the swift and very professional service offered by Shireen of Mozambique Tours. Medjumbe is a stunning location – you are treated like royalty and the friendliness of the staff is unbelievable! Our whole family enjoyed every moment, from the time we woke up to the time we went... More

Thank you to Jason, Karen and all their staff for providing a memorable visit to Medjumbe. It's the perfect destination to unwind and take in the shear beauty of the turquoise sea and indulge in the amazing food and wine. In my opinion, the website does not do the Island justice, but then again perhaps Rani Resorts have done that... More

Once you arrive at in Mozambique, you get whisked away on a charter plan to an island that is truly magical. The island is small and private . It is a perfect seclusion. There are no inhabitants on the Islands besides the staff at Medjumbe and some birds. Just you and the ocean. The welcome is amazing on arrival and... More
