On the edge of a tropical forest looking onto a white sandy beach and the azure waters of the Indian Ocean, Vamizi Island Lodge provides luxury accommodations in a paradise setting.
Ten spacious beach villas nestle in the trees just slightly back from the beach. Each villa is uniquely decorated with sumptuous furnishing in a range of themes from Balinese to Arabic to courtyard to contemporary. Two of the villas are perfect for families, with two large bedrooms divided by a roomy common area. The large bedrooms include king size four-poster beds with billowing muslin mosquito nets and Egyptian cotton sheets. The en suite marble bathrooms feature sunken tubs and walk-in showers. Each villa enjoys a private veranda with inviting sun loungers, peponi beds, and Swahili swing beds for maximum relaxation. Some of the villas even come with a private pool. The Tartaruga Villa even comes with two treehouse rooms.
Vamizi Island lies at the point where the south equatorial current splits, and the emergent cool and warm currents sustain unusually large amounts of microscopic plankton and krill, a major food source supporting a vast array of species. The Island is a diver’s dream because of the amazing seascape and diversity. At Neptune’s Arm, coral gardens tumble down a cliff. This part of the reef is so crowded with fish you can hardly see, and it was named as one of the top ten scuba sites on the planet.
