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.

An amazing experience

What a beautiful, relaxed and very special place. We had 5 magnificent days before cyclone Kenneth cut our holiday short (cyclones are extremely rare in this area). Anna and her wonderful team demonstrated such professionalism in the face of the cyclone it was truly humbling to see their dedication to our safety and the resort while making sure we enjoyed every last minute on the island - thank you team Medjumbe - we are very relieved to hear you are all safe. Great snorkelling. Incredible environment Fantastic food Friendly, efficient service Beautiful comfortable rooms Overnight stay on the nearby island a triumph! We loved it and will definitely go back.
