Anantara Medjumbe Island Resort and Spa

Luxury on a Private Island

The inviting Anantara Medjumbe Island Resort is positioned on its own private island, just 1km long by 300m at its widest, in the stunning Quirimbas Archipelago off the northern Coast of Mozambique. This island paradise is ideal for forgetting the outside world even exists.

Arrive in style by flying in on helicopter, enjoying the amazing views below. The island is home to just 12 thatched boutique beach villas all with breath-taking views of the Indian Ocean. Here simply relax on the beach, rejuvenate in the famous Anantara Spa, kayak around the crystal clear Quirimbas waters or scuba dive in some of the best dive sites in the world.

To escape even further, enjoy a picnic on Quissanga Island. Travel by private boat to the white sand island, stroll around this tiny island, take a swim and enjoy a picnic prepared by the restaurant chefs.  

This truly is barefoot luxury, an untouched castaway paradise.

A Perfect Retreat

Johannesburg, South Africa

We stayed at Medjumbe in September and from the moment of our arrival on a small plane transfer from Pemba we were astounded by the absolute beauty of the island. A sparkling jewel, stunning beyond description. The beaches and sea are pristine. The ever changing colors of the water is quite exquisite. The staff at the resort are all extremely friendly and go the extra mile all day long to make your stay special. From meal tables organized in exotic places to being available for your every wish. Meal times are a gastronomic delight with local specialities, especially seafood, expertly prepared and presented in the most romantic settings. The chalets are very well appointed with every requirement supplied. Large comfortable bed, huge bathroom with outside shower, plunge pool, a very comfortable deck with all the necessary furnishings and aircon. This is a world class facility that is not only well worth a visit but demands a visit.

Whale Watching

Between July and October, humpback whales from the Antarctic migrate to the warm tropical waters of the Quirimbas Archipelago to give birth to their calves, and a few months later these young whales make the long journey back to their Antarctic feeding grounds. Embark on an inspirational boat trip to be greeted by whales swimming peacefully alongside, watching these majestic creatures arching gracefully over the waves.
