&Beyond Vamizi Papilio A light and airy coastal haven with a courtyard theme

The spirit of &Beyond Vamizi Papilio

Take in the wonders of &Beyond Vamizi Island from the tranquil surrounds of a luxury 6-bedroom villa.

&Beyond Vamizi Papilio, aptly named after a genus in the swallowtail butterfly family, is a tranquil haven decorated in delicate hues of cream, muted blues and light wood furnishings. Spacious beyond measure, this light and airy villa offers the ideal refuge for families and groups to reconnect.

Set within three acres of verdant forest, Papilio has been designed around a “courtyard theme” with a blend of split-level living, cosy nooks for moments of reflection and luxurious rooms that urge guests to completely unwind on their well-deserved vacation.

Why we love it

  • Natural luxury
  • Direct beach access
  • Beautiful beach walks
  • Outstanding marine life
  • Excellent snorkelling and scuba diving destination
  • A range of idyllic beach adventures
  • Nesting and breeding site of green sea turtles (seasonal)

The villa

The main guest areas include a roomy dining area where scrumptious tailor-made menus are served by a private chef, two large sitting rooms (one overlooking the beautiful pristine beach, and the other with a lovely open fireplace for those cooler winter evenings), a convivial bar area, sparkling swimming pool and private beach sala.

In the evenings, guests can retreat to one of four spacious ensuite rooms, each with their own private deck and living area, whilst a further two ensuite rooms, built as “treehouses”, can be accessed by a suspended walkway and are wonderful for adults and children alike. A deck sitting in the tree canopy links the two treehouses.
