Welcome to Vamizi Tartaruga

Set within three acres of lush forest, with a vast stretch of unspoiled beachfront at its doorstep, the natural elegance of Vamizi Tartaruga (meaning “turtle” in Portuguese) is highlighted in its earthy tones, with splashes of green, and handcrafted driftwood finishes.

Ideal for families or groups, the luxurious, five-bedroomed villa boasts a bespoke design with a casual yet stylish eastern influence.

Three ensuite rooms feature private decks and spacious sitting rooms with chic interiors. The master bedroom also has an adjoining area that can accommodate two young children. A further two rooms are situated in the lush canopy of the forest, in the villa’s enchanting treehouses. These rooms offer three single beds, which can be converted into a super-king bed, as well as an ensuite bathrooms. The treehouses are perfect for older children and young adults alike and are linked by a stargazing deck.

The main guest area has a striking palm thatch roof, supported by magnificent pillars of locally collected casuarina driftwood. Its open sides lead on to a vast deck, home to the freshwater swimming pool, which flows into the landscaped gardens leading down to the ocean. Adjacent to the sitting room is a shaded al fresco sala, with a further dining area that boasts its own wood-fired pizza oven located at the edge of the beach. The local coral limestone walls, and hand-carved windows and doors are a distinctive feature of this beautiful villa.
