Re­treat to your own per­son­alised trop­i­cal is­land ex­pe­ri­ence to cel­e­brate a land­mark birth­day, a wed­ding, a sig­nif­i­cant an­niver­sary, or any other special event with those you hold dear­est with Anan­tara Med­jumbe Is­land Re­sort’s Nat­u­rally Ex­clu­sive op­por­tu­nity.

This is­land par­adise off the coast of north­ern Mozam­bique is just four hours’ fly­ing time from O.R. Tambo In­ter­na­tional air­port in Jo­han­nes­burg, and guests are ac­com­mo­dated in 12 el­e­gantly ap­pointed vil­las, each with their own pri­vate plunge pool and di­rect ac­cess to the beach.

All fine din­ing at the restau­rants of the re­sort cre­ated by per­sonal chefs is in­cluded in the Nat­u­rally Ex­clu­sive op­por­tu­nity, as are a se­lec­tion of non­al­co­holic drinks, house wines, beers, and spir­its. Non-mo­torised wa­ter ac­tiv­i­ties, dhow cruises, and dhow sail­ing lessons are also in­cluded.

Anan­tara Med­jumbe Is­land Re­sort is un­touched and au­then­tic, and lush veg­e­ta­tion frames the soft­est of white pow­dery beaches, lapped gen­tly by the azure waves of the In­dian Ocean.

En­joy the won­der and majesty of the trop­i­cal ma­rine life of the In­dian Ocean with a se­lec­tion of non-mo­torised water­sports, div­ing, and snorkelling. The Quir­im­bas Ar­chi­pel­ago, in which the is­land is lo­cated, is glob­ally renowned for its im­mac­u­late co­ral reefs; whale, dol­phin, and dugong pop­u­la­tions; and man­grove­cov­ered colo­nial-era ru­ins, now re­claimed by Mother Na­ture.

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 re­lax with friends and fam­ily at the re­sort’s main swim­ming pool.

The is­land 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 and pri­vacy that cre­ate 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. The Anan­tara Med­jumbe Nat­u­rally Ex­clu­sive op­por­tu­nity costs $12,900 per night, for a min­i­mum three-night book­ing.
