The celebrated Rani Hotel Group has done it again: One year after having opened a spectacular resort on Matemo Island, a top of the range luxury resort opens its doors on gracious Medjumbe Island.
Medjumbe is a paradise that words can hardly do justice. Brilliantly white sand beaches run endlessly along the coast and are only limited by lagoon so strikingly beautiful that the vibrant underwater life of the coral reefs comes as no surprise.
Set amidst this startling display of Mother Nature’s

beauty, the thirteen thatched-roof luxury chalets of the Medjumbe Island Resort are almost lost in the tropical landscape of the 1.1 kilometre long and only 350 metres wide island.
In strict keeping with the company’s philosophy, the Rani Group has created a resort of extraordinary beauty, supreme luxury and perfect service – all in harmony with the original African character of the setting.
The Rani Group takes its responsibilities very seriously. It sets great store by integrating the local population into the project and a large number of workplaces were created. Conservation of the natural environment is another of the Rani’s top priorities.
The Quirimbas are anything but an ordinary holiday destination. Overlooked by most, the 37 stunningly beautiful coral islands float in the Indian Ocean, unspoilt by excessive mass tourism.
The future looks promising for the islands. In an act of great foresight, the Mozambiquean government has protected the island’s unique nature, both above and below the water’s surface.
All future development is strictly controlled. Currently, only three hotels exist on the Quirimbas Archipelago and no further concessions will be granted.
The logical consequence for the distinguished guests is a sense of exclusiveness and guaranteed peace and quiet, like it is hardly found in any other place on earth.
In harmony with these background vibes, the Rani provides the adequate accommodation. The Medjumbe chalets feature every comfort a discerning traveller might wish for. However, truly inspired magnificence is found in the island’s nature.
Apart from the elegant main building, the facilities include a sweeping swimming pool, a diving school, water sports centre and a gorgeously designed spa.
Of course, the strict conservation principles the Rani group employs entail a construction that blends harmoniously with the intact nature. Only natural materials, without harming the environment, were used in construction, chiefly, selected woods and coral stone.
An extraordinarily graceful and luxurious resort was created, never once straying from the environmental protection guidelines. Heavenly remoteness and serene tranquillity are the dominating characteristics.
The same characteristics, the vibrantly colourful coral reef and the picture-perfect sand beaches are also the qualities that cast a blissful spell on the few, lucky visitors that get to experience this piece of paradise.
If you are interested in spending a holiday on Medjumbe, it is advisable to book far in advance. Despite the recent opening ceremony, the resort has already received countless reservations.
