Mozambique, Indian Ocean

Crusoe invented castaway chic, but Vamizi Island Lodge defines it, with thirteen impossibly romantic timber villas strung loosely along one of the world's most beautiful beaches.

Imagine wafting through muslin and filtered sunlight, flopping straight from your room into a private ocean and enjoying elegant lunches with your toes in the sand...

Additional Activities

  • Diving
  • Fishing


The 13 villas are set along the beach on either side of the main lodge; spread 70 metres apart to ensure absolute privacy. Each luxury villa is made from local materials, constructed in a typical Mozambique style, and roofed with palm thatching, called makuti. Each villa is appointed to overlook its own stretch of beach and is designed to receive the incoming sea breeze. Vamizi Island offers "barefoot luxury" and as such there is no air conditioning in the rooms. There is an overhead paddle fan in each room to keep you cool but normally, the incoming sea breeze maintains a pleasant temperature. A private sitting room or lounge leads from the bedroom, and a sundeck, equipped with sun loungers, surrounds the front of the villa. Swahili day beds are placed down on the beach so that you can unwind and relax, whilst taking in the stunning views of the Indian Ocean. Each villa looks out over its own stretch of beach, and has a large bedroom with king- sized beds and an en-suite bathroom.
