This island is one of the best-kept secrets in the world. It was very refreshing to visit a place with all the luxuries and amenities your heart can desire, yet at the same time be totally unspoilt and "un-commercialised". A true gem!

My husband and I won a 4 night stay in Medjumbe Private Island. What a treat! Jason and Karen are excellent managers, catering to every need. The staff is helpful and the food is great. The beaches are amazing, the water is even warm in winter!! Medjumbe is a truly a little piece of paradise.

The best honeymoon destination! We were blown away by how private and romantic this beautiful setting was, and even more impressed by the food - simply spectacular (and we are foodies!!). The staff were so caring, and really went out of their way to make the stay a memorable honeymoon. I cant recommend this place enough...if you have the opportunity,... More

Three days at Medjumbe Private Island and I feel rejuvenated. I commend the chef for the superb food - warm croissants and doughnuts at breakfast, outstanding seafood lunches and dinners. The activities were professionally conducted by Shorty and we had the chance to water ski, knee board and take a magnificent trip to Quissanga Island just 10 minutes away -... More

You might think there's not much to do on this speck of land emerging from turquoise waters, but relax and be idle. Well, nothing of the kind, we didn't have time to open our books... We were much too busy experiencing the place, following the changing tides, visiting the coral reef, enjoying the everchanging light, getting to know the living... More

We had an absolutely amazing time at Medjumbe Island! We both lost our hearts on this pristine and magical little island. The staff (always smiling) was wonderful and willing to go that extra mile in everything that they did. Special thanks to Karen and Jason that made all the difference. We would not have asked or dreamed of a more... More

What's not to love abut this place? Beautiful views that you constantly sigh upon and keep saying how divine it is, yummy food, and lovely people! We had the entire island to ourselves for most of our stay - we were thrilled that they didn't target mass market tourism. The staff greeted us with smiles all the time were were... More

No doubt a paradise on earth. The beauty of the island is amazing, the lodge is fantastic and the way we are treated by Karen and her entire team, from the moment we landed, is simply divine. It was certainly the best way to celebrate Valentine's Day, Romanticism prevailed. A note to the SPA and the excellent work of Joanne,... More

I found Medjumbe island to be truly exquisite, and the 6 days we spent there were really idyllic in every sense of the word. From the moment we touched down to the moment we regretfully left we were welcomed and treated with warmth, charm and friendship by Karen, Jason and Joanne and the rest of the Staff.
