Vamizi has become another &Beyond destination, meaning quality holiday service in a spectacular setting. Six exclusive villas offer privacy to those who need to get away from it all. Huge spaces, elegant décor and magnificent ocean and beach surrounds – what more could you ask for?

PRIME CELEBRATIONS IN NATURE…  Situated in a prime spot in the glorious Qurimbas Archipelago, the island is small and the villas enormous. Book one for your family trip and bring your friends for a celebration in nature. Each luxury villa can accommodate 10-16 people and promise guests their own private chef, butler and a vehicle to drive inland for explorations of the inland wetlands, birds and dunes.

FOOTLOOSE AND FANCY FREE…  Kick off your shoes and indulge in sheer escapism on a deserted island. Vamizi Island private villas offer exclusive accommodation – one lodge, one island. The Private Villa Collection is a good option if you want an inspirationally heavenly holiday break.

6 CHIC CHALETS IN A CHOICE SETTING…  Each villa is uniquely designed in its own elegant style. Picture gorgeous en-suite bedrooms, spectacular lounges and dining rooms, and peaceful lounging spaces around plunge pools or on the beach. Designed by award-winning South African architects, Vamizi Island’s private villas draw on the multi-cultural influences of Mozambique.

Casamina Villa

Hiding deep within three acres of indigenous forest, this tree house leads onto an absolutely private white beach. Imagine unobstructed views of the island from the top of a tower? This impressive thatched roof with open sides has a spectacular outlook over the azure Quirimbas Archipelago. Up to 8 adults and 8 children can sleep, dream and play here. Walk to the beach or swim in the private pool. Kids will love the games room with TV, books and board games.

Villa Kipila

Kipila means “plover” in Kimwani and features a tower that is inspired by the Portuguese lighthouse on Vamizi. Enjoy this perfect venue for sundowners, with magnificent views across the Quirimbas Archipelago. Kipila has a slanted ‘Balinese-style’ timber shingle roof, with high ceilings in all of the rooms. Another huge space that sleeps up to 8 adults and 6 children in 5 suites, this villa has sea-facing bedrooms and a private deck that leads to the beach.

Casa Marjani

Marjani means ‘coral’ in Kimwani, an apt name for such a creatively designed villa. Again, 5 bedrooms sleep up to 6 adults and 6 children. Set in lush dune forests, the master bedroom has a magnificent view of the ocean, its own pocket of beach and walk-in showers. From an attractive lounge with striking palm thatch roof and open sides, expansive decking flows into the landscaped gardens offering the perfect outdoor dining setting with beautiful views of the ocean.

Villa Papilio

Papilio is a genus in the swallowtail butterfly family. Imagine this 6-bedroom private villa reflecting such beauty? You can sleep up to 16 adults and children in a stunning small home nestling in 3 acres of lush forest. The ‘courtyard’ design of this villa makes it perfect both for large and smaller groups. A deck sitting in the tree canopy links the two huge treehouses. One sitting room overlooks the beautiful pristine beach, the other features a lovely open fire for those cooler winter evenings. Chill together with a game of cards, backgammon, chess and others

Villa Suluwilo

Inspired by the forest weaver, Suluwilo has a distinctive Arab flavour with its sunken courtyard and lookout tower across the beach. The villa’s charming sail roofs mirror the traditional dhow fishing boat sails in the area. Suluwilo is a five-bedroom private villa, sleeping up to 8 adults and 6 children. Appreciate a fanciful communal area complete with spacious lounge and dining room, hardwood decking and a shimmering blue swimming pool.

Villa Tartaruga

Tartaruga means ‘turtle’ in Portuguese and this 5-bedroom private villa sleeps up to 14 adults and children. Unique treehouse suites are linked by a star gazing deck, which sits in the tree canopy, and works for adults or children alike. Go for this jungle feel in a space whose main living area boasts a striking palm thatch roof, supported by magnificent pillars of locally collected casuarina driftwood. Its open sides lead to the saltwater swimming pool which flows into the landscaped gardens – leading down to the ocean.
