Imagine a remote Mozambican island lost in time and almost forgotten to the outside world for nearly a century. Picture grand, majestic architecture, some lovingly restored to their former glory while others have fallen into crumbling, marvelous ruins. Be whisked to an idyllic white sandbank beach and dive some of Africa’s richest coral reefs. Snorkel, sea kayak, swim, fish, massage and relax. Take a Quirimbas mobile island hopping dhow safari. Snack on cashew nuts and tropical fruit and feast on seafood of every description. Recline high on our mesmerizing roof top terrace overlooking the ocean and track the slow and steady dhows that drift across the blue horizon. Refresh your senses with a massage and indulge yourself with a frosty cocktail at one of the pools.
