Medjumbe boasts twelve thatched villas, all with direct beach access.

Each villa is also literally steps away from dipping your toes in the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean.

Spend your mornings dozing on your private deck by your personal plunge pool, take long romantic walks along the pristine beach, before retiring to the beach front spa where you can indulge and unwind in a variety of different spa treatments. In the evening succumb to flavors of island life and enjoy seafood harvested fresh from the ocean.
