Vamizi Island

If you were to decide to take it easy on Vamizi, you would be following in the footsteps of a star studded crowd many of whom have fallen in love with the remote beauty of this desert island idyll, in the words of Daniel Craig “a piece of my heart will stay on Vamizi”.

A hidden jewel for those ‘in the know’ this castaway nirvana offers just 13 villas nestled on a private island at the top of Mozambique’s magnificent coastline – mile after mile of picture perfect deserted white sand beaches, iridescent seas and gently swaying palms.

The allure of Vamizi Island has drawn princes and pop stars alike to this Robinson Crusoe paradise. From Will Young to the Aga Khan and the Qatari Royal family there is something for everyone as Vamizi Island boasts some of the best deep sea fishing and diving in the world.

Perhaps it was the warmth of the glistening water and the breeze gently breathing through intricately latticed windows that drew Nelson Mandela and Sven-Goran Eriksson and Nancy dell Olio.

The design concept of the pristine white billowing muslins surrounding vast beds, colonial style chairs and day beds stuffed with cushions and sensational marble bathrooms might have been what appealed to Dolce and Gabbana.

Whatever it was that grabbed the attention of this red carpet list of guests you can be sure that you are in good company should you want to ‘follow that star’ with a wonderful week at magical Vamizi Island.
