Causing a commotion in the Indian Ocean – the luxurious Vamizi Island, Mozambique


A new luxury retreat is causing a commotion in the Indian Ocean – Vamizi Island Lodge is a stunning beach destination that lies off the northern coast of Mozambique in the Quirimbas Archipelago.

Something of a hidden gem, this sparkling coastline has only been visited so far by ‘those in the know’. Powder white sands and azure blue seas abound, but this time it’s less manicured, more remote feeling, and even a little adventurous.

Vamizi Island is situated in the Quirimbas Archipelago, a chain of 32 coral islands that stretches for approximately 200 kilometres along the northern coast of Mozambique from Pemba to the Rovuma River, the natural border between Tanzania and Mozambique.

What this Indian Ocean alternative is offering is summed up by incredible luxury island retreat. Billowing white muslins drape enormous beds, the gentle sea breeze whispers through pretty latticed windows and vast decks surround just eight Robinson Crusoe villas scattered with deep sofas, colonial style chairs and cushion covered day beds.

The beaches are your own, the diving is to die for, deep sea fishing is unrivalled and the privacy is quite spectacular.

No rows of over water bungalows or ‘carefully hidden’ neighbours at Vamizi Island… the villas are 70 metres apart, absolutely private and with the company of weaver birds working over head and monkeys gamboling in front of your villa you will never feel lonely.

The luxury island hotel can be reached by Vamzi Island who charter flights regularly to/from Dar Es Salaam and Pemba. Private charter flights can also be arranged. From the Vamizi Island airstrip there is a 15 minute speedboat or 45 minute drive to the luxury lodge.
