An indulgent castaway hideaway
One of the jewels of the Mozambique island scene, Vamizi is perfect for families or groups looking for privacy and paradise
&Beyond Vamizi Island will be CLOSED from 1st September 2019. If you're looking for an incredible place to stay in the Quirimbas Islands, we suggest taking a look at Azura Quilalea instead.
Vamizi Island is a bit of an insider secret, one that we're going to let you in on because it's such a stunning setting for a tropical holiday in the fabulous Quirimbas Archipelago. This coral island is pure paradise for anyone who loves azure waters, picnics on deserted powdery beaches and of course lots of sun. It's a place for exploration, barefoot luxury living and getting away from it all, and with some of the world's best snorkelling and diving, sunset dhow rides and turtle hatching, there's always something to do. If you're so inclined. Yet if relaxation is your thing then there's plenty of that to be had too.
The 6 Vamizi Island Villas are ideal for families and groups, or for couples who enjoy having lots of space - the villas are enormous with 5 or 6 en-suite rooms. Each villa has a different theme, from the castaway beach chic 'Villa Casamina' to the Arabic-heritage inspired 'Villa Suluwilo', and they all enjoy an open and airy island vibe whilst remaining indulgently private. Full board, a private butler and some activities are included - such as kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, shore snorkelling and dhow sailing.
Our MD Ben - the UK's #1 Mozambique fan - spent the last few days of his honeymoon on Vamizi Island here's what he has to say about the beaches and the diving...
"The beaches are an absolute show stopper. Only on parts of Diani Beach in Kenya have I ever seen a rival to the fine white sand that greets you as you stroll up to the beach to Vamizi. There are a couple of deserted beaches at various points on the island, perfect for picnics, kayaking and relaxing in the sun. It's such a treat to be on some of the best beaches in the world, and have them all to yourself – and for me, I increasingly think that it's this kind of experience that best defines ‘luxury’ rather than the more conventional definition."
"And then there’s the diving... here on Vamizi island it's on a whole new level. AMAZING!! The visibility combined with the variety and sheer vivacity of the underwater life is incredible. If you are into diving, there will be few places on the planet to rival Vamizi’s offering. If you are thinking about visiting Vamizi and want to know more about diving, then feel free to call me (or my colleague Stu) to find out more about the different dives... plus its worth having a read of Tim Ecott’s article on Vamizi in the Guardian (its old, but 100% accurate about the diving experience I had some 10 years later."
* Price is per person, based on 6 people sharing a villa (full capacity is 10 - 12).
