Escape to Vamizi Island


Visitors to Mozambique just love an island holiday at Vamizi Island – the incredible setting where one lodge offers rustic yet luxurious accommodation in a sea of wilderness. There is so much to love about Vamizi, from the seafood picnic platters on the empty beach and the kayaking in the mangroves to sunset cruises on traditional dhows and reading books on the villa veranda where only the stillness accompanies you.

The design and feel of Vamizi Lodge has taken the island holiday experience to a whole new level. The message is clear –you will dream of coming back after your experience in this fantasy world. Think beyond the mere five star luxury and world class facilities – think privacy, serenity and classy simplicity on top of that.

Kick off your shoes and indulge in sheer escapism on your Mozambique island holiday.  Accommodation in 13 private villas is the best place for real rest and relaxation in the region’s sublime Quirimbas Archipelago.

Families will book the two-bedroom havens and children will gasp with delight when they walk barefoot directly onto their own bit of private beach. Gaze across an incredible Archipelago – monumental silence and limitless activities.

The diving is the best in Africa, so they say, the reefs still intact, the seas always clear blue. Look for huge Napoleon wrasse and groupers, game fish and dolphins. Vamizi Island is the only resort in the area so the dive sites are unpopulated yet teeming with fish.

Vamizi is a breathtaking Mozambique paradise island. Your days will be busy with swimming in the ocean, building sand castles and going on snorkelling trips. The whole family can do yoga and enjoy massages on the villa veranda while watching the ocean.

This is what a Mozambique island holiday should be about. It should also be about the food: your biggest dilemma will be whether to eat the famous Mozambican prawns and lobster in the privacy of your own villa, in the fabulous lofty beach house restaurant or straight off the beach barbeque!

Holiday Home in Mozambique

Have you ever heard of renting out a holiday home in Mozambique where you are completely alone in nature? The best way to unwind is to find a holiday home on the beach where your space is completely private and you immerse yourself in nature. The best way to do this is to self-cater in a stand-alone villa where your service is included and you never see another person. Or to splash out in style and book a luxury villa with all the mod cons imaginable…

Exclusive Vamizi Private Villas 

The Vamizi Private Villa Collection is all about Robinson Crusoe opulence – getting back to nature but where understated luxury counts. Choose from 6 exclusive and individually decorated villas, totally spread out so that you feel as if you are alone on this perfect island paradise. Each villa is huge, comprising 5 to 6 double en suite bedrooms with an extensive deck and immediate access to your own bit of beach. Families will love the children’s wing and central communal area where everyone can play board games, listen to music and watch television.

Staff Lay on Thick 

Then watch your private chef cook up a seafood storm while you swim more lengths in the sparkling pool. Your team of staff at each villa will take you for drives around the island, organise fishing, dhow and diving trips, and a spa treatment for the ladies. Your island walks, shore-based snorkelling, beach picnics, sea kayaking, dhow sailing and village visits are part of your package deal and if you add on some diving, PADI scuba courses, boat trips and fantastic spa treatments for real chilling and relaxing you pay extra.

Private and Fun 

It is very easy to organise private and exclusive holidays in Mozambique when you talk to the experts in holiday home travel. Private vacation specials usually include your charter flights, your personal guide when you go on bush escapes, your vehicle, helicopter flips, luxury catamaran outings and personal picnics set up in bush or on beach.

Home away from Home 

These kinds of holidays are tailor-made with you and your travel companions in mind. You may be on a family journey that happens but once a year or you may be taking the entire family into Mozambique to celebrate someone’s birthday. Your home away from home should ooze all the good things in life including full time staff, sparkling swimming pools and vast sun tanning decks, cultivated gardens, organic vegetable gardens and sumptuous en suite bedrooms. Ask for experienced nannies to care for your children when you go out to eat or dive or kite surf!

Roughing it in Style 

This is our kind of roughing it, in style, on the beach! You may like the idea of staying on Magaruque Island, in the six luxury Magaruque Villas which also offer fully equipped kitchens, outside decks and plunge pools – great for self-catering visitors. From here you can explore the wonderful Bazaruto Archipelago by luxury catamaran. Anchor off the islands of Benguerra and Bazaruto and see how their elegant villa accommodation fits into the natural environment.

Greek Style Elegance 

Also, in Vilankulo, the luxurious, multi-level Villa Santorini is a large white guest house looking out over the ocean and comprising five tastefully decorated en-suite rooms for 14 guests. Completely private in its forested seclusion, this Mozambique villa has a Greek-like ambience: blues and whites, large arched windows, inviting lime-washed furniture and attractive mosaics.
