Bengaluru, April 02, 2016: Secluded on a pristine private island in the Quirimbas Archipelago off the northern coast of Mozambique, Anantara Medjumbe Island Resort has reopened following an extensive refurbishment. The 12-villa, adults-only African island hideaway now features refreshed décor, luxury villa upgrades and new signature experiences, including a Robinson Crusoe-style star bed for the ultimate romantic escape.

Naturally intimate, Medjumbe Island is a mere one kilometre long and 300 metres wide. Tranquil seclusion in paradise is matched by convenient access, just a 45 minute light aircraft transfer from Pemba International Airport, which can be reached from Mozambique's capital Maputo or international flights from Johannesburg or Dar es Salaam. Now, with a host of enhancements, the resort has reopened to offer more unique signature experiences and natural attractions and will soon be the only African island resort to use 100% solar energy.

Authentic Luxury Has a Vibrant New Look

Refreshed décor gives Anantara Medjumbe a distinctive African island identity. The resort has been extensively restyled using colourful patterns to depict the vibrancy of local culture. Shades of blue and aqua reflect the evolving hues of the Indian Ocean. All of the 12 thatched Beach Pool Villas, which open onto soft powdery sands, exude a sense of natural luxury, including newly designed private splash pools with an aqua mosaic finish, and a built-in Champagne step to sip bubbles while admiring the Indian Ocean view. In the guest villas and public areas, the majority of furniture and lighting was custom designed by interior designers, Savile Row, and produced in Indonesia and South Africa with incredible attention to detail. Various accessories were sourced from around the African continent and framed artworks were created using traditional wax printed capulana fabrics that were sourced from local markets.

Unforgettable Ocean and Island Adventures

Surrounding Medjumbe Island, Quirimbas National Park boasts an impressive number of pristine coral reefs that attract an abundance of marine life, making it one of the world's best snorkelling and scuba diving destinations, as well as a prime haven for dolphin and whale watching boat trips. The turtles which are frequently sighted in the water also come ashore to lay their eggs - often right in front of Anantara's beachfront villas. Water sport thrills range from water skiing to wake- and knee-boarding. Romantics can travel by dhow sailing boat to picnic on a deserted island, or set off at dusk for a Champagne sunset cruise.

Adding to the wide range of ocean experiences, the resort's new dhow sailing boat lesson offers couples a bonding 90-minute experience on the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean, with the option of both taking up the challenge of mastering traditional techniques, or one relaxing onboard and cheering on their partner. Guided by a team of three experienced local skippers, guests learn how to work the ropes, check for wind direction, control the sail and steer. The brand new Robinson Crusoe-style star bed experience invites couples to spend a night sleeping in a king size four-poster bed surrounded by lanterns, underneath a twinkling night sky.

The Ultimate Dream Escape For Couples And Honeymooners

Anantara Medjumbe's remote setting and assured privacy promises exclusivity. Untouched natural beauty allows couples to lose themselves and completely unwind. The ocean's aqua marine shades are dazzling and powdery white sands stretch for over a mile when the tide goes out, with an incredible array of intact corals and shells washing up on the shore. Tropical palms complete the postcard-perfect scene.

Undiscovered compared to other renowned diving destinations, the underwater adventures here are truly exceptional. Couples can stroll straight from their villa onto the beach and swim or snorkel without distraction or intrusion - the only other passersby being local fishermen sailing their traditional dhow boats to and from the mainland. The allure of seclusion is balanced by the warm welcome and genuine hospitality of the resort's team members, who go out of their way to create memorable experiences.

Enhanced Luxury in a Tropical Paradise

Boutique interior design firm, The Beaumont Partnership, has redesigned the 132 square metre Over Water Suites to enhance the space available whilst complementing local tradition and heritage. From the natural
rattan decorative panels and Italian ceramic tiling to the custom outdoor lanterns, every detail has been considered for the pleasure and convenience of Anantara guests. Travellers are offered the opportunity

Inspiring Light by Day or Night

Natural light abounds in each of the suite types, with floor-to-ceiling windows allowing the vast expanse of dazzling turquoise sea to be admired from the comfort of the plush king-size beds. The warm ocean breeze can be enjoyed on private sun terraces or refreshment sought by a dip in the deep lagoon directly from the wooden deck.

The three differing types of suites contain a variety of distinctive touches added in the renovation including free standing bathtubs, Grohe rain showers and wood shingle roofing along with extra indulgences such as an outdoor rinse shower, iPod docking stations and Nespresso coffee machines.

Discerning guests can choose their inspiration, whether it be waking up to a dazzling vista of endless ocean in a Sunrise Suite or soaking up the colours at sundown in a Sunset suite. Alternatively, visitors can select one of the six Over Water Pool Suites where they can bathe in the serenity of their own 15 square metre infinity pool.

In addition to structural re-modelling for more natural light and a greater sense of space, other highlights of all 40 (19 Sunset, 15 Sunrise and 6 Pool) Suites include an outdoor sun terrace with sun loungers, sun umbrella daybed and al fresco dining table. A ladder from each deck gifts guests direct access to the crystal waters of the lagoon and the colourful reef marine life that surrounds. Within each suite itself, the double vanity bathroom offers mesmerising vistas of the oceans so guests can literally soak in the view.

The work of international artist Christopher Hogan, Former Artist-in-Residence, decorates each private sanctuary accentuating the elegant aesthetics of the suites with abstractions of the reef and its shimmering palette.

With the revamp of the Over Water Suites, Anantara Dhigu invites guests to delight in the enhanced luxury the resort provides. Indulge in the romance of one of these lavish cocoons, enjoy dining over the azure Indian Ocean under twinkling night skies or partake in traditional Maldivian activities on the nearby islands or the capital of Male.
