Anantara Medjumbe Island Resort's Star Bed Experience.

If you've ever dreamed of sleeping under the stars, here's your chance: Anantara Medjumbe Island Resort, which is located in Mozambique's Quirimbas Archipelago, is introducing their unique signature "Star Bed Experience." It's the ultimate romantic getaway that transports couples to a secluded private island where they can watch the sunset, have dinner and experience a sleepover under the stars.

The adventure begins with a dhow boat ride on the Indian Ocean, taking guests to the uninhabited Quissanga Island. There, they are left to marvel over the African sunset while indulging in an array of pre-selected refreshments of their choosing. Dinner is then served in the form of either a relaxed picnic on cushions or a formal table setting. Both experiences are meant to be enjoyed on the private beach accompanied by flame-lit torches and candles for the ultimate ambiance.

The menu includes a tasty assortment of Mediterranean salads, marinated meat and seafood kebabs with homemade sauces, as well as chocolate brownies and fruit skewers. An island BBQ option is also available, complete with a personal chef who will prepare a feast of salads and sashimi, as well as flame grilled meats and seafood in exotic marinades, paired with tropical fruits and a gourmet dessert.

After dinner, couples may retreat to a luxurious outdoor four-poster bed, where they can fall asleep under the stars while listening to the sound of the waves. In the morning, they may stroll along the island shore and go for a swim prior to being picked up by a dhow boat and taken back to the resort where a breakfast buffet awaits. 

 Guests of the resort enjoy complete solitude away from the rest of the world.
