Call it Castaway Chic. At Vamizi Island, there are no masses of tourists to distract you from enjoying the island's pristine white beaches facing the Indian Ocean.
There are only 13 separate beach houses, each with a large living room and waterfront veranda. You won't find TV or air conditioning, but you will find natural breezes, masses of cushions, and private lounges with deep cane couches and colonial chairs.
Go catch a sailfish. Snorkel through pristine coral systems, or take a boat ride alongside dolphins. Back at the lodge, relax on a swinging bed before dining on fresh seafood. The next morning? Take an Ashtanga yoga class, then discover Vamizi beauty treatments made of local seaweed and minerals.
Don't forget, Vamizi Island is first and foremost a conservation project. A portion of every guest's fees go towards wildlife and habitat conservation projects, as well as local community organizations. So you can feel even better about staying here.
