Anantara Medjumbe Island Resort & Spa

‘Intimate Getaway; Unspoilt Paradise’

Stretching only one kilometre long and three hundred metres wide, the idyllic oasis of Anantara Medjumbe Island offers an undisturbed retreat. Pristine powdery beaches encircle the resort and preserved coral reefs await discovery, with year-round warm, crystal clear waters providing perfect scuba diving conditions. Awe-inspiring whale watching can be experienced between the months of July and October, whilst the swimming pool and water sports also provide further leisure options. Fresh, locally caught seafood can be savoured at Jahazi restaurant and spectacular sea views can be admired at the open-air, breezy Bahari Lounge Bar. Only 12 thatched villas are featured across the resort and each boasts a private plunge pool as well as direct beach access.
