We have recently returned after 5 magical days at Medjumbe. It is a small island - with 12 villas, there would be 24 guests at full occupancy. However since we had gone off peak, there were far fewer guests. The staff are fantastic. Gary and his team pampered us thoroughly. For meals, there is no set menu - each day,...

My wife and i recently spent 6 days on Medjumbe. We like small hotels and don't like big resorts and it doesn't get much better than Medjumbe Island, with its laid back but very attentive approach. No buffets - Choose what you want to eat when you want to eat and you always well looked after for drinks etc. The...

We spent 7 days on the magical Indian ocean islet of Medjumbe. Some of our party of 4 (2 couples who have travelled extensively together over 20 years or more), were anxious about the prospect of spending 7 days on an island barely 2km long. All anxieties were rapidly dispelled. This was the most refreshing, relaxed break in complete serenity,...

Absolutely loved my (unfortunately short) time here. I wish I could have stayed for at least a week. We stayed at a very quiet time of the year pre-easter, so we literally had the resort to ourselves for 2 nights, so it felt like our own island. As a result, the team under Charles the resort manager was completely focused...
