Getting Rich on Holiday – Vamizi Island
It is uncanny how the wealthy get easy access to magnificent places in deepest darkest Africa to renew their souls and tone their bodies! But that can be you too… Just raid the bank, talk to some travel consultants and get on a plane to Mozambique. For this coastal African country has it all: long white beaches, clear blue oceans harbouring diverse marine life and corals, remote islands still untouched by human greed and all kinds of exciting urban social life and architectural brilliance.
“As others have said, this place is not easy to get to, but boy is it worth it!” Join Tripadvisor in rating Vamizi Island as a specialty lodging, worth a Certificate of Excellence…
Survivor tactics needed
There is virtually no way to find fault with Vamizi. The only drawback, if you can call it that, is that there are no commercial flights to this remote destination which forces intrepid holiday makers to charter a private plane. Of course, this adds on to the overall cost of your holiday – so find some friends and add value to your holiday in paradise. O yes, another downside to your Vamizi vacation is that you have to leave. And cherish your experience forever.
Choose to Be Really Alone
Vamizi Island is the kind of place where you need to open all six senses to immerse yourself holistically in a place brimming with natural beauty. If you love beach holidays and have always dreamed about finding the perfect quiet island with clean soft powder sand and turquoise waters, then choose Vamizi Island. Your private space becomes your alone haven. Yes, Vamizi island is that dream holiday.
Family- sized Decadence
Book one of only 6 huge private beach villas to understand what authentic holidays in Mozambique should really feel like. On the other side or the coin, it may be a good idea to invite your close family or friends – who also love solitude, breath-taking scenery and opulent accommodation – to fill all the spaces in this 6-roomed villa. You even get your own chef, a driver with a jeep and other friendly house staff. This must be a dream holiday – no cleaning, no cooking, no driving!! To crown it all, your bedroom faces the ocean and you can walk onto the beach from the glorious decking around a huge infinity pool.
