The rooms are all sea-facing, with private decking and intimate pathways leading to the beach. Above the dining room is a children’s games room with table-tennis, TV, books and board games.


There are 4 en-suite double/twin rooms and 1 children’s area that sleeps up to 6 including the nannie’s room.


The communal area consists of a spacious lounge and dining room with ample hardwood decking and a swimming pool.A tower, inspired by the Portuguese lighthouse on Vamizi, offers spectacular views across the ocean; the perfect setting for a sunset.


A slender coral island just off Mozambique’s remote northern coast, Vamizi Island is part of the Quirimbas Archipelago, sometimes called the new Maldives.

Immersed as it is in the Indian Ocean, Vamizi is easier to reach than you might think, considering how castaway it is – and with miles of deserted coastline and a tropical ocean to cross, it’s all part of the adventure.

Kipila is staffed with a private chef and hospitality team (villa manager, housekeepers and butler) and has its own 4×4 car with driver.
