Vamizi, in the far north of the Quirimba islands has long been recognised as Mozambique's most exclusive island lodge. &Beyond Vamizi offers six individually styled, large private villas ideal for families and small groups. Each 5 or 6 bedroom villa comes with a private chef, butler, and 4x4 vehicle on standby. Vamizi welcomes children: several of the villas have children's rooms with bunks and an adjoining bedroom for a childminder, and games rooms with satellite TV. The villas are either set right by the white powder beachfront or in the dappled shade of the indigenous forest cover. Most feature a private pool as well as beach access.
Vamizi not only offers excuisite luxury accommodation, but is set in a marine reserve that hosts some of the healthiest coral reefs on earth, thanks to a decade of conservation work in collaboration with the local community. As a result, Vamizi is a diver's dream come true. Neptune's Arm has been ranked amongst the top 10 dive sites in the world and visitors can look forward to seeing around 300 species of colourful reef fish, 180 species of coral, huge pelagics and a very rare concentration of grey reef sharks. There are dive sites to suit all levels, and PADI instructors to guide or teach. Vamizi is also an important breeding site for green turtles, which can be observed both nesting and hatching in season. Conservation officials protect the hatchlings until they reach the ocean, and guests can help. Other seasonal visitors include humpback whales and their calves, which pass by the island on migration between July and October. Samango monkeys and the extraordinary giant coconut crab are resident on the island and are frequently seen by guests.
For those who can tear themselves away from the idyllic beaches, &Beyond offers castaway picnics around the island, kayaking in the estuary and mangrove forest, deep sea, spear and fly fishing, sunset cocktails on a traditional dhow cruise, guided nature walks and community visits. Beach games keep younger guests happily busy whilst adults enjoy an in-room spa treatment or a yoga session. At the end of the day, retire to your private viewing tower for an incredible star gazing experience. Vamizi island is the ideal destination for a very special island getaway with family or friends.
