Hot List All-Stars 2012

Vamizi Island Mozambique

Quirimbas Archipelago, Mozambique

To me, true relaxation means completely unplugging from the outside world while still having all the best possible comforts, and the Vamizi in Mozambique (which I visited in 2007) is the epitome of a Robinson Crusoe–like island. My villa overlooked what might as well have been a private beach, with no development—and you’re literally steps away from some of the best diving in the world. Even though Vamizi has the kind of luxuries most of us only dream of, it’s simply done, with huge canopy beds and gorgeous African wood shutters that let in the ocean breeze. Surrounded by so much beauty and serenity, I was heartened by how far the country had come since the brutal days of its civil war.—O., Hot List reviewer since 1998
