Style & Décor
Constructed mostly from hardwoods with lattice screens, peaked roofs and classic island-style shutters, Kapila manages to be airy and cosy, rustic and modern, all at the same time. Oversize light fittings and Warhol-inspired maps of Africa co-exist happily with lazy ceiling fans, woven hanging chairs and a palette inspired by the ebb and flow of the Indian Ocean that is mere footsteps away.
Vamizi is in the Quirimbas Archipelago off the coast of northern Mozambique. Ideal for laid-back island holidaying, Villa Kipila enjoys 125m of pristine white coral beachfront that has unfettered ocean views and is enveloped by virgin forest of acacia, hibiscus and casurina trees. Turquoise waters beckon you in for dreamy snorkelling and diving: Vamizi lies where the south equatorial current splits, meaning that is warm waters can support an astonishing panoply of marine life, including at least 46 types of coral and over 400 species of fish. For divers, there is a sheer-walled canyon that falls to kilometre below the surface – a hidden secret that is thrilling to uncover.
This large beach villa is ideal for multi-generational groups who want access to a variety of water sports but also complete privacy with a ‘home from home’ feel.
