Idyllically located on a tiny private island in the jewel-like Quirimbas Archipelago off the northern coast of Mozambique, Anantara Medjumbe Island Resort & Spa offers a paradise escape that is naturally exclusive. Just one kilometer long and 300 meters wide, the resort combines sophisticated simplicity with unrivalled hospitality.
Feel soft powdery sands sifting through your toes as you stroll along a pristine beach lapped by the turquoise Indian Ocean. Drift from a lazy morning by the pool to refresh in the waves, before retreating to Anantara Spa’s intimate beachfront villa to indulge in uniquely sensual therapies. Savour tastes of island life with tantalising local cuisine and seafood plucked fresh from the ocean, or succumb to the finest world flavours, served with extraordinary ocean views.
Beyond the dazzling view, the waters surrounding Medjumbe Island offer an oceanic playground for a wide range of water sports, whale watching boat trips, intimate cruises and remote island picnics. While some of the world’s most undiscovered and impressive coral reefs create surreal underwater diving adventures.
Far removed from worldly cares, where total tranquility is assured at an adults-only hideaway, Anantara Medjumbe Island is perfect for romance, special celebrations, a dream honeymoon or unforgettable anniversary.
A boutique collection of 12 thatched Beach Pool Villas line a postcard perfect beach and reveal panoramic Indian Ocean views. With direct beach access, a private pool and hammock, the charmingly furnished interiors offer the ultimate tropical island retreat.
Wake up to a view of endless blue stretching as far as the eye can see, and perhaps a cool dip in your personal plunge pool. Spend a lazy morning basking under the African sun or strolling along soft powdery sands and dipping your toes in the azure Indian Ocean. Swing in your hammock, caressed by a tropical breeze and lulled into relaxation by gently breaking waves. In the evenings, unwind with a cocktail in hand, until the stars beckon a sumptuous dinner.

Each day begins with a breakfast which can be deliciously nutritious or a hearty affair, depending on your mood and preferences. Return for lunch and dinner to choose from a carefully crafted á la carte menu and enjoy the sumptuous three course set menus which change daily for your dining pleasure. Sample local specialties and refined western classics, or let our expert chefs transform the lobster, calamari, fish and mangrove crab, caught fresh by local fishermen, into delectable seafood feasts.
Bahari Lounge Bar
Bahari offers one of the most incredible views in the Quirimbas and is open throughout the day and evening so that you can enjoy the evolving ambience. Relax in an open plan layout that allows the ocean breeze to drift in. Sit around low tables, or gather at the bar on high stools to watch our bartender concoct your favourite tipple.
Dining by Design
Choose from a collection of gourmet menus, or collaborate with your personal chef to craft a brand new menu to suit your tastes and desires. At a time of your choosing we’ll setup a beautifully decorated table on your villa’s pool deck or just steps away on the beach, with a private butler tending to every need. For a truly unique Dining by Design experience, a special setup can be created at the lighthouse on the eastern tip of the island near the beach. This incredible structure was built in the 1930s and is no longer in use, serving instead as a secluded venue to dine in scenic privacy.
