Anantara Medjumbe Island Resort, Mozambique

Anantara has added another Mozambique island paradise to its portfolio. Joining the Bazaruto property, the Anantara Medjumbe Island Resort & Spa is now open on a pristine private island in the Quirimbas Archipelago off the country’s northern coast. This is the Indian Ocean at its finest: white sandy beaches, turquoise waters, and colorful coral reefs for snorkeling and scuba diving adventures. This is an adults-only resort (not appropriate for children under the age of 16), and the facilities are conducive to romantic sojourns and honeymoon getaways.

For those looking for an active vacation, the resort offers a range of water sports, whale watching trips, bird watching, kite surfing, and cruises to remote islands for picnics. It’s possible to privatize the entire resort for special celebrations.
