Idyllically located on a tiny private island in the Quirimbas Archipelago off the northern coast of Mozambique, Anantara Medjumbe Island Resort & Spa offers a paradise escape that is naturally exclusive. Feel soft powdery sands sifting through your toes as you stroll along a pristine beach lapped by the turquoise Indian Ocean. Drift from a lazy morning by the pool to refresh in the waves, before retreating to Anantara Spa’s intimate beachfront villa to indulge in uniquely sensual therapies. Savour tastes of island life with tantalising local cuisine and seafood plucked fresh from the ocean, or succumb to the finest world flavours, served with extraordinary ocean views.
Wake up to a view of endless blue stretching as far as the eye can see, and perhaps a cool dip in your personal plunge pool. Spend a lazy morning basking under the African sun or strolling along soft powdery sands and dipping your toes in the azure Indian Ocean. Swing in your hammock, caressed by a tropical breeze and lulled into relaxation by gently breaking waves. In the evenings, unwind with a cocktail in hand, until the stars beckon a sumptuous dinner.
Beyond the dazzling view, the waters surrounding Medjumbe Island offer an oceanic playground for a wide range of water sports, whale watching boat trips, intimate cruises and remote island pic-nics. While some of the world’s most undiscovered and impressive coral reefs create surreal underwater diving adventures.
The coral reefs surrounding the Island of Medjumbe are one of Mozambique's best-kept secrets. Bordered to the east by the coastline of Northern Mozambique and to the west by the Mozambique Channel, these waters hold an astounding diversity of marine species and are all within close proximity to the resort. Dolphins are often encountered around the Island and on journeys to and from the dive sites. Humpback Whales on their annual migration are frequently sighted between August and October.
