Welcome to Vamizi Papilio
Vamizi Papilio 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, Vamizi 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.
Take in the wonders of Vamizi Island from the tranquil surrounds of your luxury six-bedroom 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.
Why we love it
GREAT FOR FAMILY GROUPS
With rooms spread through a courtyard feel, two swimming pools and multiple spacious guest areas, this is a perfect villa for multigenerational and slightly older families. Completely private, with your own team of staff, your experience is wholly tailor-made.
REMOTE BAREFOOT LUXURY
Vamizi is the ultimate destination to recharge. You are removed from anything else, and often don’t see anyone else during your time on the island. Barefoot is literal in Vamizi Papilio and you can have days where you need never put on a pair of shoes.
AN ARRAY OF EXPERIENCES
For the more adventurous –both children and adults- this is a great beach destination, with plenty to do. Enjoy beach picnics where you can paddle a kayak, go snorkeling, scuba diving, deep sea fishing or enjoy a soul soothing massage or sunset dhow cruise.
CONTEMPORARY OPEN SPACE
Vamizi Papilio has many spaces and guest areas to while away the time. Spend your time in one of two swimming pools, have sundowners on the tower deck or enjoy meals under the beach gazebo. Unwind on your own private slice of paradise where time stands still.
