'on the shoreline, with to-die-for views of the ocean'
Exclusivity is one of Vamizi Island's greatest assets and, as the only lodge on the island, it has the space to spread wide, so each Kitala ( a local Ki-mwani word meaning luxury beachfront villa) amply commands its own part of the beach.
Eight Kitalas - one or two bedroomed - are right on the shoreline, all with to-die-for views of the ocean.
Both airy and generous - with over 170 square metres of timbered floor to pad about on, they have plenty of space for spreading beds, sofas, a marble shower and vanity area and outside, a sun deck.
Vamizi Island is not about the ordinary five star stuff, so don't expect TVs or air conditioning - it's all about barefoot relaxation and rooms as open as they can be, to catch the natural breezes.
That said, if you can't drag yourself away from your Kitala, there's a mini-bar and the means for a deluxe cup of tea or coffee – as well as private dinners in the room on request.
Beyond that, we just leave you alone, in the peace of your own private paradise.
