Two Asian-inspired wellness sanctuaries by Banyan Tree will open on luxury private islands off the coast of Mozambique in Q4 2022.

The first, a signature Banyan Tree spa, will open at Banyan Tree Ilha Caldeira – a new private island getaway.

The resort will be joined by a sister island, Banyan Tree Veya Ilha Nejovo, dedicated to wellness and wellbeing. This adults-only 20-villa wellness destination will be located in the same archipelago as Banyan Tree Ilha Caldeira and be reachable by boat.

The island resort is being built with a focus on sustainability, a central pillar of Banyan Tree’s philosophy. It will be set on a previously uninhabited island within the marine reserve of the Primeiras and Segundas Archipelago.

The 40-key resort will be 100 per cent solar-powered, recruit directly from local communities and have its own desalination plant to provide sustainable drinking water.

To realise this ecologically sustainable private island sanctuary, Banyan Tree has partnered with South African-born entrepreneur and businessman Jack Truter.

For Truter, this project is realising a lifelong dream of building an idyllic island resort off the coast of Mozambique. He has recently been given special rights by the Mozambican government to build the destination.

The team’s joint goal is to develop a destination blending effortless barefoot luxury and a globally recognised philosophy of wellbeing and sustainability with the vibrancy of African culture and hospitality.

“This is the first five-star ultra-luxury private island development by a globally recognised hotel brand in Mozambique,” said resort GM Eduardo Johnston da Silva.

“We’re proud to be showcasing this vibrant country.”

The resort’s spa will offer an island wellness escape for guests and feature four double treatment rooms as well as a single garden treatment room.

Facilities will include a hydrotherapy pool, fitness and wellness centre, yoga pavilion and beauty salon.

Accommodation will consist of 40 private ocean-facing pool villas, each with its own dedicated villa host to answer guests’ every need.

Meanwhile, resort dining opportunities will feature a 270º-ocean-view fish and seafood market restaurant, an all-day dining restaurant or in-villa or destination dining options.

Additional resort facilities will include a Marine Conservation Centre, diving school, ocean-front infinity school, helipad, gallery, wine cellar with private dining room and kids club.
