The Sleep under the Stars Experience with Anantara

Drift off into heavenly sleep with the Ultimate Private Island Sleep Out by Anantara Mozambique

‘Star Bed Experience’ at Anantara Medjumbe Island Resort - An unforgetable open-air bucketlist check.

"Discover an isolated private paradise in Mozambique’s Quirimbas Archipelago. Settle into the romance of rustic luxury and blissful tranquility where powder white sands and golden sun is the daily norm. Dip your toes into the blue water and toast the pink sunsets." - Anantara Medjumbe Island

Are you dreaming of endless skies and drifting off into the night skies? If your heart starts to jump in agreement, read on!

Anantara Medjumbe Island Resort introduces a dream like getaway for night sky lovers on a remote African island. During the day, endless shades of blue and turquoise let the mind wander as far as the eyes can see, but during sunset time, nature transforms in gentle colors, preparing for the night. Far away from pollution and city lights the signature "Star Bed Experience" brings fluffy hotel bed sleeps to the next level. Guests at the resort have the opportunity to be whisked away to an uninhabited private island for sunset, dinner and overnight, for the ultimate sleepover escape. 

Blending a Robinson Crusoe-style adventure with Anantara’s authentic luxuries, the romantic escapade begins with a 15-minute voyage on a traditional dhow boat on the Indian Ocean which is teeming with marine life and blessed by occasional sightings of turtles, dolphins and sometimes Humpback whales in mating season.
Arriving at Quissanga Island, couples are left alone to admire a magical sunset, toasted with pre-selected refreshments. As dusk gives way to a sparkling canopy of stars, the private beach is illuminated by flame lit torches, lamps and flickering candles, setting the mood for a night of dazzling private romance. Dinner under the stars on a deserted beach offers the choice of a formal table setting or relaxed on cushions. A gourmet picnic hamper can be left for the couple to savour in a world of their own, filled with Mediterranean salads, marinated meat and seafood kebabs with homemade sauces, followed by chocolate brownies and fruit skewers. Those who prefer a stargazing island BBQ can request a personal chef (at an extra charge) to prepare a mouth-watering feast of salads and sashimi, leading into succulent flame grilled meats and seafood in exotic marinades and sauces, followed by a decadent dessert and tropical fruits, paired with any beverages their hearts desire.
Left alone in blissful solitude, couples retire to their luxurious four-poster bed dressed in the finest linens to sleep al fresco on the beach under a galaxy of stars – cocooned by a warm tropical night and the sound of waves gently lapping the shore. With no fresh water on the island there are no mosquitoes, allowing guests to reconnect with nature and each other, completely undisturbed in absolute comfort. We recommend to download the app "Starwalk" showing a live image of constellations you have never seen before.  
Promising adults-only exclusivity on a tiny private island in the remote Quirimbas Archipelago off the northern coast of Mozambique, Anantara Medjumbe Island Resort’s untouched exotic beauty is matched by the absolute privacy of just 12 Beach Pool Villas. This incredible destination for couples and honeymooners is enriched by the all-inclusive benefits of the Discovery Experience package, which includes accommodation, daily breakfast, lunch and dinner with free flow beverages, a host of non-motorised water sport activities and an in-room mini bar, as well as the wondrous Star Bed Experience.

Indulge in the signature Star Bed Experience as part of the ultra luxurious all-inclusive Discovery Experience package – available exclusively at Anantara Medjumbe Island Resort.
