Medjumbe Private Island

If you dream of a Robinson Crusoe-esque escape with all the five-star luxuries you could imagine, including just-caught lobster for lunch, extraordinary snorkelling and diving in an azure blue ocean, and warm, water for floating about in for hours, then Anantara Medjumbe Island Resort & Spa is certainly the place for you. This tiny island is situated in the Quirimbas archipelago in the far reaches of Northern Mozambique and is a mere speck in the Indian Ocean. Here, an early morning walk around the island takes just under an hour and with a limited number of guests at any one time, your privacy is guaranteed.

Reached by a small charter plane, Medjumbe is as much a romantic escape as a place to kick back, relax and let your brain and body reboot –it really is the ultimate in barefoot luxury. Each beach villa (there are 12 in total) is blessed with an uninterrupted sea view as well as air conditioning and is dressed for the occasion in restful ocean tones and dark wood details. Designed as a haven for couples seeking together time and as a space for sheer and utter tranquility, each chalet has its own plunge pool and a hammock in which to laze while enjoying the sounds of the ocean.

Days here are spent beachcombing on the powder soft, white sands, playing board games or cards upstairs in the communal lounge or enjoying cocktails poolside. There is now also a lovely new spa. Daily dives with an experienced instructor reveal an extraordinary underwater world, while windsurfing, kayaking and fishing expeditions are easily arranged. Despite the distance from ‘civilisation’, you’ll be amazed at the quality of the cuisine at this extraordinary island escape. From fresh seafood-studded salads to simple just-seared linefish brought to the island by local fisherman as well as platters of traditional Mozambican prawns – there is seemingly no end to the mouthwatering spoils that Medjumbe has to offer its guests.

From the service to the food and spectacular position and views, it’s no wonder then that this hidden gem of an island receives rave reviews from guests who have been lucky enough to grace its impossibly perfect snow-white shores.
