With only 13 luxurious thatched en-suite chalets on an 800 by 350 metre private island, a stay at Anantara Medjumbe Island Resort & Spa is an exclusive, stylish & hedonistic affair. The island is one of many in the beautiful Quirimbas Archipelago and the perfect vista of endless white sand and an azure blue sea is literally mesmerizing. Tear your eyes away from the view for long enough to take in the well furnished interior of your spacious chalet with built in air-conditioning to keep the heat at bay and an outdoor hammock for lazy afternoon siestas in true Portuguese fashion!
The main area is dominated by a dining area where you will dine on sumptuous seafood feasts and the pool where you can cool off and enjoy a tasty exotic cocktail from the bar. Speaking of cocktails, Medjumbe has their own secret recipe for caiparinhas, it could be the surroundings but they taste just like paradise. Medjumbe's signature is stylish simplicity, delicious seafood, some of the world's premier diving and fishing, and a wealth of romantic delights. When you finally manage to take it all in, you may never want to leave this idyllic island paradise.

The Quirimbas islands have enormous cultural and historical value, with a combination of Arabian, Portuguese, and African influences.
