From South Africa it is an easy flight to Vilanculos in Mozambique. From this coastal town it is a quick boat ride to the amazing Bazaruto Island.
If you are ready to escape to a private desert island, this is the place to be. With forty-four luxe villas, sparkling pools, and a picture-perfect location, Anantara Bazaruto Island Resort is a dream tropical destination.
Anantara Bazaruto Resort & Spa offers a variety of activities from horse-riding, snorkelling, deep sea-fishing, a tour of the island and water-skiing. Be pampered in the spa or just relax on the beach.
Set along remote, endless sands and dramatic dunes, the Anantara is the only hotel on the Barazuto archipelago’s largest island.
It shares its home with a friendly local community who will happily chat to you about their day’s fishing. And thanks to the resort’s west coast location, at the end of each day you can watch the sun set over the African mainland.
The lodge is built to blend into the natural environment with thatch, wood and reed. Your stay here is luxury and attention to detail.
Large thatched villas are dotted along the hillside and the beachfront. Beach Villas have beautiful sunset views. Huge Deluxe Seaview Pool Villas sit high up on the dunes, a short golf buggy ride from the beach. With a private plunge pool and two bedrooms, they’re a great option for families and friends travelling together.
The dazzling mineral-rich waters play host to an extraordinary array of marine life. Spot starfish and hermit crabs in the shallows, while further out you can hope to see turtles, manta rays, four types of dolphin and the rare dugong, as well as humpback whales (mid-June to mid-October) and whale sharks (December to March).
The snorkelling and diving opportunities are incredible. Like all of Mozambique’s southern beaches, the beach is tidal, but there’s plenty to do during the times when swimming isn’t an option – the soaring sand dunes provide the opportunity to go horseriding and try out sandboarding.
Three restaurants include characterful Golfinho, with original walls from Portuguese trading days; the Tartaruga beach deck specialising in grilled meat and seafood specialities; and Clube Naval for light lunches and pizzas by the pool.
One of the 3 restaurants: Tartaruga Deck
Food here is delicious, with giant prawns and crayfish, and Thai and Malay-inspired curries.
Dining by design offers romantic dinners set up for you on the beach or in the privacy of your own villa. The resort cleverly caters for adults and families, with a quiet adults-only beachfront pool as well as a family-friendly pool. The Anantara Spa is a highlight, with a gloriously romantic setting. It’s open until 10pm – sunset massages in a private spot amongst the dunes and a bottle of Champagne in the Jacuzzi at sundown both come recommended.
Sand boarding, scuba diving, horse riding, or just bask in the sun and chill!
Meals are enjoyed at the main lodge area and you can sample fresh seafood as well as a variety of other Mozambique dishes. Have a cocktail at the bar or soak in the sea-views from the infinity pool.
