There’s something compelling about the idea of sleeping under the stars; drifting off to sleep to the sound of the waves, the rustle of palm branches and nothing else but the immensity of the night sky. Doing so at Anantara Medjumbe Island Resort in Mozambique means you can add a generous dose of luxury to the picture, with a remote private island in the middle of the Quirimbas Archipelago all to yourself.
The new Star Bed Experience sees guests carried across the ocean on a traditional dhow boat to Quissanga Island, which will be all yours for the night. Watch the sun dip below the horizon, then explore your new home while flaming torches and flickering candles light up the night. Before you retire to your four-poster bed, chose between an island picnic dinner with a gourmet hamper on the beach, or a more formal table setting accompanied by a catered BBQ and personal chef.
Wake up at leisure and enjoy the feeling of complete solitude, with a pristine beach and the crystal clear waters of the Indian Ocean all to yourself. The boat will return at an agreed time to take you back to Medjumbe Island, where a buffet breakfast awaits, and perhaps a few more nights in one of the resort’s 12 Beach Pool Villas.
