Just footsteps from the powder-soft sands, this 5-bedroom villa offers up to eight adults and eight children a private oceanside retreat.
Designed to merge with the hectare of indigenous forest in which it nestles and to take advantage of 125m of pristine coastline on its doorstep, Villa Casamina has five beautifully appointed en suite bedrooms with spellbinding ocean views. Dappled shade from surrounding acacia, hibiscus and casuarina trees falls onto sun-bleached boardwalks that connect laid-back living spaces, an organic pool deck and the cobalt swimming pool. Savour sublime local cuisine prepared by your personal chef, while a team of dedicated villa staff – including a personal driver with 4x4 - will ensure your every need is catered for.
While away the hours by snorkelling in Vamizi Island’s gin-clear waters that teem with dolphins, whales, turtles and magnificent coral reefs – and often have visibility of up to 50m. Dive one of the world's top 10 sites - Neptune's Arm - or head out onto the water to enjoy a romantic dhow cruise along the breezy shores.

“These spacious, contemporary villas are all perfectly set up for families and groups of friends who want to relax in privacy on their own private piece of paradise.”Liesel van Zyl, Product Manager
Borrowing from nature and referencing Mozambique’s unique fusion of different cultures, Villa Casamina brings beachcomber living into the 21st century. High thatch roofs and curved shapes merge seamlessly with bright pops of cobalt and crimson inspired by nature. The bedrooms and living areas are connected with by a sinuous wooden walkway that is banked by unspoilt forest. Think lattice screens, accents of driftwood and a kick-off-your-shoes atmosphere.
Lying in the Quirimbas Archipelago of northern Mozambique, Vamizi is an idyllic private island ideal for families and friends wanting a secluded enclave to relax and recharge. The crystal-clear waters are perfect for snorkelling, diving and fishing, while an array of sailing boats, kayaks and dhows are available for guests to enjoy the exquisite coastline. The resort offers spa treatments with therapists mixing their own infusions from Vamizi rock minerals and seaweed, as well Muntu Nkulu, a take-it-easy restaurant if you occasionally want to emerge from Villa Casamina.
This large, exclusive-use villa is ideal for up to eight adults and eight youngsters who want the freedom of their own beachfront and access to superb diving and snorkelling options.
Drenched in sunshine for most of the year, northern Mozambique enjoys a tropical climate. Winter months (between May and September) are the best time to travel with a low rainfall and cooler temperatures, while the summer months (October to April) are hotter and more humid – perfect conditions for never leaving the water. January and February are the rainiest months, with brief, intense downpours, followed by sunny skies.
Indicate early that you would like spa treatments to ensure that a full range of services is available to you.
A fully-equipped island-style kitchen is where your personal chef will create sublime cuisine for you from the freshest local ingredients. Succulent seafood feasts and traditional dishes with a distinct African flair will take you on a culinary journey – dare to try just-caught calamari or spicy piri-piri chicken, favourites in the region.
Five exquisite bedrooms fulfil your shipwreck fantasies with large double/twin beds, billowing gauze canopies and high thatch ceilings. Sliding doors fold back to seamlessly connect interior and exterior spaces, allowing you to immerse yourself in nature. Three of bedrooms are sea-facing with incredible views, while the fourth is tucked away in a tree house-setting amongst the trees. The fifth room is ideal for children, with two separate sleeping areas that accommodate bunk beds and a shared bathroom.
Luxurious bathrooms with showers and baths accompany each guest bedroom, while the children’s bedroom enjoys a separate bathroom with shower.
The beauty of Villa Casamina is its ability to cater for the different interests of a diverse group. The split level living area allows for feasts around the large dining table, after-hours catching up in the bar, a child-friendly zone in the games room – complete with TV and board games as well as a library – and secluded study on stilts for those wanting to finally get cracking on their novel or just seeking a totally private haven for meditation or ‘me time’.
If you feel like a change from the beach and sea, find refuge in the dreamy outdoor recreation area, where you will alternate between the turquoise swimming pool and the perfectly positioned sun loungers.
The elevated study room allows for reading, writing and daydreaming.
