Vamizi Island Private Villas
Arching out of the Vamizi seas - twelve kilometres long and a kilometre wide - this whale-shaped curve of beach and bush is drenched in sunshine and breezes.
Vamizi Island defines castaway chic, with five impossibly romantic timber villas strung loosely along one of the world’s most beautiful beaches. Vamizi isn’t about the usual five star luxury and all mod cons, it’s about the more rarefied pleasures of exclusive island life.
Sleeping as many as 12, Vamizi’s Private Villas are perfect for family groups, friends travelling together or even couples wanting their own private hideaway. Each villa is uniquely designed in its own elegant style with en-suite bedrooms, spectacular drawing and dining rooms, and peaceful lounging spaces around plunge pools or the beach. The private chef and personal hospitality team will ensure all needs are met, from tailor-made menus to organising fishing and diving, spa treatments or dhow sailing trips.

This crescent island that is a springboard for some of the best diving, fishing and beach life in the world. Beneath the surface of the Vamizi seas is an outstanding reefscape – mountains, valleys, plateaux and cliffs- teeming with a bewildering amount of sea life, from whales, dolphins, turtles and reef sharks to gregorian corals and giant clams.
