Anantara Bazaruto Island Resort is ideal for those who prefer less of a casual beach lodge experience and more of a resort feel. The lodge lies on Bazaruto Island, the largest island in the Bazaruto & Benguerra Islands just off the coast of Mozambique near Vilanculos. It faces west with glorious sunsets over the bay.
This resort is constructed using natural materials such a soft-fringed thatch, reed and wood to blend into the environment. There are 44 beach chalets and villas in total. The air-conditioned beach chalets, some with interconnecting chalets for families, are decorated in a fresh coastal style. Each has indoor and outdoor showers, en suite bathroom, sea-facing king size extra length beds, open plan living area, mosquito nets and screens, air-conditioning, mini bar, satellite TV, safe and tea/coffee facilities. Outside there’s a veranda, and a hammock for relaxing. A honeymoon chalet is similar but in a more secluded location about 20 metres from the beach with an added dressing area and a private plunge pool outside.
Anantara Bazaruto has 12 Luxury Bay View villas, each with two en suite bedrooms, with an outdoor dining area, sala, outdoor shower, private plunge pool, air-conditioning, minibar, satellite TV, mosquito screens, tea/coffee facilities, lounge and fully equipped kitchen. There’s also one executive suite, the Matemo suite, and one Presidential Villa with two bedrooms and its own swimming pool.
Families and Activities
Anantara Bazaruto, as the resort is also colloquially known, is great for families, with a pool, games room and supervised play area with jungle gym, trampoline, slides and swings. The Bay View villas are particularly good for family beach holidays.
The lodge has an Activity Centre where a range of water and land-based excursions are on offer. As well as snorkelling, diving, deep-sea fishing and sunset cruises, you can also enjoy canoeing, fly-fishing water-skiing, hobie-cat sailing, kayaking, horse-riding, tennis, ocean safaris in search of dolphins and whales, nature trails and guided drives around Bazaruto island. A state-of-the-art dive-training pool is available if you want to take one of several dive courses on offer.
Those simply wanting to relax can laze around the beautiful swimming pools, drink cocktails at the pool bar, or enjoy a pampering treatment at the luxurious spa or a workout at the gym.
