Vamizi Island Lodge is one of the most spectacular places I have ever had the pleasure of traveling to, so much so that the day I arrived I was speechless. A 3 nights stay in paradise (Villa number 1), with my own private beach, warm-wooden sun deck, Africology-sented power showers, luxurious linens, sun, sea, sand & complete tranquility – I was truly in paradise. THE FOOD: I opted to enjoy my morning breakfast spread of nutritious goodness in the comfort of my secluded beach house with an ocean breeze – Highly recommended! The menu for each day was so creative (eg. Gin & Tonic sorbet for dessert one evening). THINGS TO DO: While at Vamizi I went scuba diving at the Vamizi dive center and discovered an untouched underwater world, which I would recommend a dive or at least a snorkel to have a peek at the thriving coral & fish life below. My day trip to the light house at the very tip of the island was divine! Endless spreads of pristine beach and a fresh lobster for lunch. Vamizi Island was a dream….
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A slender coral island just off Mozambique's remote northern coast, Vamizi Island is part of the Quirimbas Archipelago, sometimes called the new Maldives. Immersed as it is in the Indian Ocean, Vamizi is easier to reach than you might think, considering how castaway it is - and with miles of deserted coastline and a tropical ocean to cross, it's all part of the adventure. Of all Vamizi's attractions, its beaches are undeniably one of its greatest, especially as the Lodge and Private Villas are strung loosely along them. At times the sea can be so mirror calm that the silence of a beachcombing walk is not even punctuated by the sound of waves. Stay on Vamizi Private Island and choose your accommodation either in the Lodge or one of our Private Villas: The Lodge: Crusoe invented castaway chic, but Vamizi Island Lodge defines it, with ten impossibly romantic timber villas (known locally as kitalas) strung loosely along one of the world's most beautiful beaches. Simply grand or grandly simple, this lodge is about the more rarefied pleasures of exclusive island life. The Villas: Vamizi's collection of luxury villas has been designed by award-winning South African architects, renowned for their commitment to creative design, sustainable development and responsible tourism, creating a unique style of architecture that draws on the multi-cultural influences of Mozambique. Each villa is uniquely designed in its own elegant style with en-suite bedrooms, spectacular drawing and dining rooms, and peaceful lounging spaces around private pools or the beach. The private chef and personal hospitality team will ensure all needs are met, from tailor-made menus to organising fishing and diving, spa treatments or dhow sailing trips ... more less
