Set among the Quirimbas Archipelago this sublimely tranquil island is surrounded by calm, cyclone-free waters. From 2015 guests can enjoy a luxurious stay in a selection of six brand new Private Villas which have recently opened. The accommodation is designed by award winning architects for larger groups, or families, offering space for between 12 and 14 people. There is a dedicated Chef, housekeeping staff, and a hospitality manager looking after your every need.
Alternatively, The Lodge Villas (10 beautiful 'kitalas') are perfect for couples seeking romance and the location is unsurpassed. The timber luxury beach front villas are set over 70 meters apart, with simply spectacular views of the Indian Ocean.
Naturally, a spa will complete the experience, helping visitors to unwind from the stresses of everyday life with a massage. One big spa, Vamizi nurtures from the inside out, offering some of the best energy and body treatments available using natural recipes borrowed from local women on the island. The island recently won 'Best Healthy Hideaway' at the Conde Nast Spa Awards 2014.
Vamizi boasts world-class diving and is nominated as one of the top-ten dive sites in the world. Adventurous guests can also enjoy big game fishing (wahoo, dogtooth and yellowfin tuna, giant trevally), estuary kayaking, and catamaran or dinghy sailing. Alternatively, guests can simply snorkel straight off the shore, enjoy a sunset dhow cruise, watch dolphins and if you are lucky you might even see a humpback whale breach!
For those wishing to explore, a stroll inland is advantageous, to see nesting green turtles, giant coconut crabs, rare Samango monkeys and colourful, exotic birds. Make a community visit to the local Mwani people and see their traditional fishing villages, or take a castaway picnic to a very private corner of the island.
Vamizi is a conservation and community project aimed at preserving this remote and unique wilderness and improving the livelihoods of its inhabitants as well as an important marine reserve. It has an important purpose rather than just being a holiday destination.
You will not regret holidaying at Vamizi Island and the time away from today’s all too often fast pace of life, will be worth every penny!
