Vamizi Island Lodge
Simply grand or grandly simple – Vamizi Island Lodge off northern Mozambique’s coast isn't about the usual five star luxury and all mod cons, it's about the more rarified pleasures of exclusive private island life. The diving and fishing here is some of the best in the World.
For all those who love to flop, there's another bunch who need to flip. On the surface, Vamizi Island is utterly mellow. Go a few feet below and everything changes, as the Vamizi seas - which lodge residents share with no other tourists at all - are bristling with big ocean action. Some of the dives here are said to be the best in the world and the deep sea fishing better than the whole East African coast. There are PADI dive instructors, professional fisher folk, and all the toys and kit you’d want to make the most of this astonishing marine world.
Exclusivity is one of Vamizi Island's greatest assets and, as the only lodge on the island, it has the space to spread wide, so each villa amply commands its own part of the beach. Thirteen villas - one or two bedroomed - are right on the shoreline, all with to-die-for views of the ocean. Both airy and generous - with over 170 square metres of timbered floor to pad about on, they have plenty of space for spreading beds, sofas, a marble shower and vanity area and outside, a sun deck. Vamizi Island is not about the ordinary five star stuff, so don't expect TVs or air conditioning - it's all about barefoot relaxation and rooms as open as they can be, to catch the natural breezes.
