After months of planning and wedding stress, the best cure is a tropical beach honeymoon and there is no better destination than Mozambique.
And, if it’s privacy and solitude that you’re after, then Medjumbe Private Island is just the place for you.
Due to its remote location, exclusivity on Medjumbe Private Island is guaranteed and it is here where you can look forward to a picture-perfect setting of powdery white sands, azure blue waters and swaying palm trees.
Stretching one kilometre in length and 300 metres in width, Medjumbe Island is surrounded by the waters of the Quirimbas National Park boasting an extraordinary number of untouched coral reefs that attract an abundance of marine life. It’s without a doubt one of the world’s best snorkelling and scuba diving destinations, as well as a first-class sanctuary for dolphin and whale watching boat trips.
In many ways this private island resort lives up to its reputation as Mozambique’s best-kept secret. It is renowned for offering barefoot luxury, privacy and unparalleled hospitality. Its signature is stylish simplicity, with delicious seafood, some of the world’s premier diving and fishing, and a wealth of romantic flair.
Newlyweds finding themselves at Anantara Medjumbe Island Resort can now also look forward to a refreshed romantic haven, following the completion of an extensive refurbishment programme in 2016.
The resort is intimate featuring only 12 thatched Beach Pool Villas, all of which open on to the beach with private splash pools and a built-in Champagne step to sip where couples can toast to their new lives together while admiring magnificent views of the Indian Ocean.
For an extra memorable experience, couples are urged to sleep underneath the stars in the Robinson Crusoe-style star bed for a night. This experience will allow you to sleep in a king size four-poster bed encompassed by lanterns, underneath the beautiful African night sky.
While it may be difficult to draw yourself away from the rest and relaxation, couples looking to spruce up their stay with some great activities on offer.
Simply stroll out of your villa to swim in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean or discover the underwater utopia while snorkelling.
The resort also offers dhow sailing boat lessons and couples can look forward to a 90-minute bonding experience. Lessons are guided by a team of three experienced local skippers, which will educate guests in learning how to work the ropes, check for wind direction, control the sail and steer the boat.
