Retreating to your own personalised tropical island experience with only your friends and family surrounding you is now within easy reach, with Anantara Medjumbe Island Resort’s Naturally Exclusive opportunity now available for the ultimate celebration.
Just four hours total flying time from Johannesburg, Anantara Medjumbe Island Resort was named Africa’s Leading Private Island Resort in the 2015 World Travel Awards, and those seeking a luxurious private retreat to celebrate a special occasion can book out this entire island paradise for their exclusive use.
This includes accommodation for up to 24 guests in the island’s 12 beautifully appointed villas, each with their own private plunge pool and direct access to the island’s pristine beaches.
The island will be yours and yours alone for the time you book it, with only your party to share in the memorable experience, making it the perfect way to celebrate a landmark birthday, a wedding, a significant anniversary, or any other special event with only your most loved family and friends.
Naturally Exclusive includes all fine dining at the resort’s restaurant by personal chefs, water activities, dhow cruises and dhow sailing lessons.
Anantara Medjumbe Island Resort is untouched and authentic, and is naturally intimate at just one kilometre long and 300 metres wide. Lush vegetation frames the softest of white powdery beaches, lapped gently by the azure waves of the Indian Ocean.
Guests can enjoy the wonder and majesty of the Indian Ocean’s tropical marine life with a selection of non-motorised water-sports.
The Quirimbas Archipelago, in which the island is located off the coast of northern Mozambique, offers idyllic underwater journeys for divers keen to experience its globally renowned immaculate coral reefs, whale, dolphin and dugong populations, and mangrove-covered colonial-era ruins, now reclaimed by Mother Nature.
For those preferring a less structured respite in this African island paradise, guests can spend their days on the island’s magnificent beaches alongside the warm, crystal-clear ocean, swim in private in their villa’s pool, or enjoy exclusive pool time with friends and family at the resort’s main swimming pool overlooking the infinite horizon.
With the island at the heart of a nature reserve, every care has been taken to respect the environment. Each building in the resort has been designed and built to pay homage to the breathtaking surrounds, with sustainable natural materials used wherever possible.
Operations on the island also focus on sustainability and recycling, making it possible for visitors to take magnificent memories with them, but leave nothing but footprints on the pristine beaches when they leave.
The archipelago offers visitors the kind of secluded, unspoiled island paradise no longer possible on larger, more commercial Indian Ocean and Caribbean islands, with personal attention to detail, privacy and memories that will last a lifetime.
This rare feeling of being in a world of one’s own is conveniently accessible with a 45-minute private helicopter transfer from Pemba International Airport, which in turn can be reached via direct three-hour flight from Johannesburg’s OR 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.
