Vamizi Private Villa Collection

Vamizi Private Villa Collection: Our full report

6 Private Villas
All year

Located on Vamizi Island are the remote and exclusive Private Villa Collection. None of our team has visited new Private Villas to give a firsthand report on their experience, so here is a factual description in the meantime.

Separate to the existing Vamizi Lodge which is currently closed for refurbishments, the Vamizi Private Villa Collection consists of six exclusive villas. The Villas are independent of each other, offering complete privacy. They are located on a secluded stretch of Vamizi Island. Each Villa boasts five or six double en-suite bedrooms with private deck and beach access, a children's wing with two connecting bedrooms, and a central communal area. The latter houses a lounge, dining room and plunge pool surrounded by hardwood decks and outdoor seating. The design is contemporary and airy, using locally sourced natural materials.

A personal hospitality team caters to guests' individual needs and preferences with tailor-made menus and a flexible activity programme. A range of activities are available. The complimentary options include walking trails, shore-based snorkelling, beach picnics, sea kayaking, dhow and laser pico sailing, and village visits. Additional activities can be arranged through the Villa manager at extra cost; such as fishing, scuba diving and PADI scuba courses, boat trips around the islands, whale watching (in season) and holistic spa and wellness treatments.

Guests at the Vamizi Private Villa Collection also have access to all the main areas of the original Vamizi Lodge.
