“Ananatara Medjumbe Island Resort reopened early December 2015 after an extensive renovation period. The interiors have been freshened up and brought to life to compliment the amazing azure blues of the surrounding ocean and the white beaches of Medjumbe Island. Mozambique Voyages travelled to Medjumbe to get a first hand experience of the new look and feel of the island.
The beautiful northern Quirimbas Archipelago is home to Medjumbe. The private island offers only 12 villas which makes it the ideal romantic hideaway. The villa interiors have been given a refreshed look and feel with touches of bright African patterned materials. The new look and feel blends in perfectly with the natural beauty of the island. The villas still feature en suite bathrooms with both shower and bath as well as outdoor shower. Also available are a mini bar, Nespresso coffee machines (for the early morning java requirements), gym in a bag and beach bag with hats, flipflops and a wrap just in case you forgot yours. Additional luxury touches include the soap menu on arrival, from which you can chose your preferred soap bar combinations for bath time, as well as a modernized rooms directory on a mini ipad.
The size of the villas have not changed but the outdoor deck area has been given new life with the addition of modern, comfortable outdoor furniture as well as a newly designed private splash pool in mosaic tile finish. The outdoor areas of each Villa are now a lot more inviting to guests and a whole day can be spent relaxing here whilst soaking up the surrounding tranquility.
One of the most notable improvements is the dining experience at Anantara Medjumbe. On arrival a selection of snacks is available for you to enjoy – from calamari rings, chicken and fish kebabs to fresh fruit and sweet treats. The “Dining by Design” concept menus are new and exciting and turns meal times back into the highlight that they are meant to be.
A variety of activities are on offer to keep guests entertained. There are some great diving to be enjoyed in the surrounding waters as well as two snorkel spots available at low tide from beach. A visit for more snorkeling and a picnic lunch amongst the Palm trees on Quissanga island is always a must do whilst staying at Anantara Medjumbe. The wellness centre will smooth out stress knots from tired muscles or sit back and enjoy a cocktail whilst sailing on a traditional dhow around the island at sunset.
