Mozambique is the new and exclusive destination for those who want to explore a still unspoilt region, where nature in all its beauty is the absolute protagonist: unexplored nature reserves, timeless archipelagos and stretches of sand that plunge into the deep blue Indian Ocean.
Located on a dream beach in the Pemba area, one of the most untouched in the country lays Diamond Mequfi Beach Resort, the newest property of the luxury brand, Diamonds Hotel and Resorts of the Planhotel Hospitality Group.
A vacation at Mequfi Beach which is affiliated with the prestigious Small Luxury Hotels of the World and winner of the World Travel Awards 2016 in the categories of Mozambique’s Leading Resort and Mozambique’s Leading Beach Resort, combines maximum privacy and relaxation with the opportunity to experience the emotions of excursions to discover the treasures of the area and of water sports like the adrenaline inducing kite surfing.
Not to be missed are the boat trips in the company of a marine biologist, to discover the secrets of the rich
underwater marine life: the most magical experience is to witness the whales as they swim along the coast, often
during the months of August and September. And to end the day on an emotional note, a horseback ride along the wild deserted beach in the golden light of sunset.
Diamonds Mequfi Beach also offers guests plenty of relaxation time and a unique atmosphere, where attention to clients’ needs, the quality of service, and the beauty of the location, all contribute to ensuring an unforgettable holiday for couples and newly weds, looking for a little romantic tranquillity, perhaps after a safari in the famous Gorongosa National Park among the lions, elephants and giraffes, or an excursion in the Quirimbas Archipelago, with its coastal forest, coral reefs and sea turtles.
The 50 rooms, 40 deluxe rooms and 10 suites, are set out in beach bungalows and are spacious and bright, decorated in a contemporary style with local details and materials, equipped with all the comforts and with a private terrace offering stunning ocean views.
At the centre of the Resort, is a saltwater swimming pool with sun beds for relaxing on and a bar that remains open until late so that one can enjoy the magic of the African nights.
One of the most important aspects of Mequfi Beach is its’ cuisine, which is able to satisfy even the most discerning palates. The restaurant “Assinatura” serves a sumptuous American buffet breakfast and “à la carte” international and local dishes for lunch and dinner, while the “Sea You” Restaurant, which opens in the evenings, offers fresh fish in a refined setting. For those who prefer a snack or a pizza, the “Brisa do Mar” restaurant is open all day until 18.
Not to be missed, is a visit to the Mvua African Rain Spa, a little bit of paradise where you can enjoy being pampered with treatments made from natural ingredients such as plants, flowers, salt, grains, spices, wild honey and brown sugar, and which can also be enjoyed in the shade of a gazebo on the beach.Source: Diamonds Mequfi Beach/ Small Luxury Hotels of the World- Press Release
