Enjoy your own private tropical island off the Mozambican coast


Nestled on the Quirimbas Archipelago off the northern coast of Mozambique, Anantara Medjumbe Island Resort has just launched Naturally Exclusive, a rare opportunity to enjoy the tropical paradise with a hand-picked selection of your friends and loved ones.

Untouched and tucked away, the African island hideaway measures just one kilometre long and 300 metres wide. Innately intimate, the paradise island boasts lush vegetation, which frames the softest of white powdery sands and azure waves that blend seamlessly into the horizon.

Naturally Exclusive offers a luxurious sanctuary off the Mozambican coast, perfect for unforgettable gatherings, intimate weddings or special occasions for the whole family, young and old. The island accommodates up to 24 guests in 12 luxury villas, each with its own private plunge pool boasting endless views of the ocean. Soak up the African sun on a selection of picturesque beaches, private villa pools or at the oceanfront resort pool.

Catering to all taste buds, personal chefs will be on hand to create breakfast, lunch and dinner menus that will satisfy every craving. From Mozambique’s bold flavours, European classics that hail from colonial Portugal, to a nod to the finest global fair and flame grilled ocean treasures, dining at Anantara Medjumbe Island guarantees mouth-watering indulgence.

Team Members will be on hand to take care of every desire, with activities and amenities tailored to personal wishes, making it the ideal setting to bring friends and loved ones together for a luxurious beach escape. Enjoy a mesmerising sunset with a sumptuous feast on the beach or sail away on a sunset dhow cruise. Guests can also take dhow sailing lessons or a more active holiday approach by partaking in a selection of non-motorised water sport activities.

Quirimbas Archipelago

Anantara Medjumbe Island Resort is part of the Quirimbas Archipelago, a dazzling string of island jewels off Mozambique’s northern coast. It is part of the Quirimbas National Park, renowned for its immaculate coral reefs, and whale, dolphin and dugong populations, as well as mangrove-covered colonial-era ruins, reclaimed by Mother Nature.

With the island at the heart of a nature reserve, every care has been taken to respect the environment. Resort buildings are designed in tribute to breath-taking surrounds, with sustainable natural materials used wherever possible. Recycling and conservation efforts ensure visitors take sublime memories and leave nothing but footprints on pristine beaches behind.

Naturally Exclusive gives guests the perfect canvas of seclusion and scenery to create the unique coastal getaway of their dreams. The archipelago offers visitors the kind of unspoiled beach refuge no longer possible on larger, more commercial Indian Ocean and Caribbean islands.

This precious feeling of being in a world of one’s own is conveniently accessible with a 45-minute private helicopter transfer from Pemba International Airport, reached with a comfortable three-hour flight from Johannesburg’s O.R. Tambo International Airport.

The Anantara Medjumbe Naturally Exclusive opportunity costs $12,900 per night, for a minimum three-night booking, including accommodation for 24 guests in 12 private luxury villas, full board dining created by personal chefs, and a selection of non-alcoholic drinks, house wines, beers and spirits. Guests also enjoy a sunset dhow cruise and dhow sailing lessons, as well as a selection of non-motorised water sport activities.
