Simply grand or grandly simple – this lodge isn’t about the usual five star luxury and mod cons, it’s about the more rarefied pleasures of exclusive island life. Imagine wafting through muslin and filtered sunlight, flopping straight from your room into a private ocean and enjoying elegant lunches with your toes in the sand.
Exclusivity is one of Vamizi Island’s greatest assets and, as the only lodge on the island, it has the space to spread wide, so each Kitala (a local Ki-mwani word meaning luxury beach front villa) amply commands its own part of the beach.
Eight Kitalas – one or two bedroomed – are right on the shoreline, all with to-die-for views of the ocean. Both airy and generous – with over 170 square metres of timbered floor to pad about on, they have plenty of space for spreading beds, sofas, a marble shower and vanity area and outside, a sun deck.
