Secluded on a pristine private island in the Quirimbas Archipelago off the northern coast of Mozambique, Anantara Medjumbe Island Resort has reopened following an extensive refurbishment. The 12-villa, adults-only African island hideaway now features refreshed décor, luxury villa upgrades and new signature experiences, including a Robinson Crusoe-style star bed for the ultimate romantic escape.

Naturally intimate, Medjumbe Island is a mere one kilometre long and 300 metres wide. Tranquil seclusion in paradise is matched by convenient access, just a 45 minute light aircraft transfer from Pemba International Airport, which can be reached from Mozambique’s capital Maputo or international flights from Johannesburg or Dar es Salaam. Now, with a host of enhancements, the resort has reopened to offer more unique signature experiences and natural attractions and will soon be the only African island resort to use 100% solar energy.

Surrounding Medjumbe Island, Quirimbas National Park boasts an impressive number of pristine coral reefs that attract an abundance of marine life, making it one of the world’s best snorkelling and scuba diving destinations, as well as a prime haven for dolphin and whale watching boat trips. The turtles which are frequently sighted in the water also come ashore to lay their eggs – often right in front of Anantara’s beachfront villas. Water sport thrills range from water skiing to wake- and knee-boarding. Romantics can travel by dhow sailing boat to picnic on a deserted island, or set off at dusk for a Champagne sunset cruise.

Anantara Medjumbe’s remote setting and assured privacy promises exclusivity. Untouched natural beauty allows couples to lose themselves and completely unwind. The ocean’s aqua marine shades are dazzling and powdery white sands stretch for over a mile when the tide goes out, with an incredible array of intact corals and shells washing up on the shore. Tropical palms complete the postcard-perfect scene.
