Emerging Destinations is pleased to announce the arrival of Anantara resorts in Zambia and Mozambique to its portfolio of cool destinations around the globe.
Founded in 2001 with a single beachfront property in Thailand, Anantara has grown into one of the world’s foremost luxury hotel groups. The collection spans cosmopolitan cities, exotic tropical islands, desert sands, heritage destinations, uncharted beaches and contemporary resort destinations in Asia, the Middle East, Indian Ocean, Mediterranean and Africa.
Anantara revolves around the mantra of “Life is a Journey” filled with opportunities to seek the exceptional, encounter the new and widen your horizons. A stay at one of their properties is just one more chapter in a lifetime of travel and exploration and they intend to make it an extraordinary one.
Their thoughtfully designed luxury hotels and resorts provide windows into the genuine character of each destination. Inside and outside each property, travelers engage with the places, people and stories that make the destination like nowhere else in the world. Guests curate a lifetime of memories through personal experiences, as Anantara opens doors and enables journeys of adventure and indulgence.
Emerging Destinations will represent three of Anantara’s destinations in sub-Saharan Africa:
Located just steps from one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, the Royal Livingstone is located on the Zambian side of the Zambezi River in Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park, overlooking the Zambezi River and with direct access to world-famous Victoria Falls.
Perched on the gorgeous Ilha de Bazaruto (Island of the Mist), Anantara Bazaruto Island lies 30 km off the Mozambique mainland. Its 44 luxury villas lie between rolling sand dunes and the azure ocean in a Bazaruto Archipelago protected within the confines of a marine reserve and national park.
Among the finest resorts along Africa’s Indian Ocean coast, Anantara Medjumbe Island is located on a small private island in the beautiful Quirimbas Archipelago that stretches along Mozambique’s northern coastline. With only 12 beach pool villas, guests cast away in luxury Robinson Crusoe style.
