Villas Suluwilo was designed by COA and is located on Vamazi Island, Mozambique. Vamizi’s private villas have been designed by carefully selected award winning South African architects, renowned for their commitment to creative design and sustainable development, creating a unique style of architecture that draws on the multi-cultural influences of Mozambique.
Suluwilo (meaning ‘forest weaver’ in Kimwani) is a 5 bedroom private villa, sleeping up to 8 adults and 6 children. It lies within 3 acres of forest along a pristine white beach. There are 4 en-suite double/twin rooms and 2 children’s rooms (2 bunks in 1 room and 2 single beds in the other).
One of the double/twin rooms is at first floor level with its own balcony, whilst the rest are on ground level with private decking and intimate pathways leading to the beach. The communal area consists of a spacious lounge and dining room that opens onto hardwood decking and a swimming pool.
There is also a sunken Arab courtyard and a ‘lookout’ tower with spectacular views across the ocean.
A beach gazebo offers the perfect setting for beach barbeques and a children’s games room with tabletennis, TV, books and board games sits above the dining room. Suluwilo’s real charm is in the ‘dhow sail’ roofs, inspired by the traditional dhow fishing boats in the area. The palm thatched roofs are carefully angled to catch the sea breezes, keeping the villa cool and fresh throughout the year.
The villa is staffed with a private chef and hospitality team and has its own 4X4 car with driver. An array of sailing boats and kayaks are available to its guests along with fishing, diving, dhow sailing, nature walks, community visits and picnics.
