Anantara Offers Private Island Buy Out Retreats

Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas has launched four new island buy-out packages in The Maldives, Mozambique and the Arabian Gulf for those looking for the ultimate remote luxury retreat.  This follows an increase in demand for privacy, space and peace of mind.  From the UAE’s biggest nature reserve, Sir Bani Yas Island, to the tiny Medjumbe Island off the coast of Mozambique, to the archetypal private island destination, The Maldives. Anantara offers guests complete privacy, security and comfort in some of the most spectacular locations around the world.

Anantara Medjumbe Island Resort Private Island  

Off the coast of Mozambique in the Indian Ocean, Medjumbe Island is a mere one kilometre long and 300 metres wide.  A collection of 12 luxurious beach pool villas accommodate up to 24 guests, with the resort offering a wide range of water sports and dining.

Small and private, Medjumbe Island’s tropical landscape and blue waters provide some of the world’s most undiscovered scuba diving or snorkelling opportunities. For those preferring a less structured respite on this African island hideaway, days can be spent relaxing on the island’s white sandy beaches overlooking the ocean.

Anantara Medjumbe Island’s private island buy out package starts from USD 19,280 per night, and includes:

  • Daily breakfast, lunch, dinner and selected beverages
