Amanwana Celebrates Its 30th Anniversary

Diving into the Outer Reef

Amanwana Bay is a pristine marine reserve with a variety of dive sites that are as remote as they are beautiful. With the entire coastline of Moyo Island formally recognised as a conservation area, there is no better place to observe underwater life in a protected setting. The Amanwana Dive Centre caters to all levels of experience, with the option to gain PADI certification during a stay.

Stargazing Cruise & Sound Healing Under the Stars

A magical experience for all ages, Amanwana’s stargazing cruise ventures just a short distance out into the bay on the resort’s traditional wooden outrigger Aman XIV. Out at sea, the captain turns off the engine and allows the boat to serenely drift beneath the dazzling canopy of stars. While soaking in the awe-inspiring natural surroundings, enjoy drinks and refreshments on the roof of the boat.


Bakela Feast Dining

When it’s time to refuel, the traditional dining experience can be seamlessly enhanced for any occasion. From a celebratory beach welcome dinner to an arrival barbeque, relax with toes in the sand and bonfires alight, indulging in true island style.

Cooking Class with Ibu Halimah and Visiting Mixologist

Hosted in her home in the local village, just a 10-minute boat journey away, experience a taste of the local cuisine with a variety of flavourful dishes showcasing the spices and produce of the region.
