The primary challenge about this lovely place is trying to find it! Directions as you drive into Vilanculos could not be found and our gps and Google maps took us to the wrong place. However, when we eventually made our way along the 4x4 trail leading to the lodge, it was definitely worth the effort. Having looked at a few... More

I went to Villas do Indico for a week with a friend and we had an amazing time! I highly recommend that place, with direct access to the beach! The bungalows are very well-furnished and confortable. The restaurant serves really good food and the staff is so nice that it's hard to believe! They did do everything so we can... More

Rooms and location are really lovely, as is everyone who works here. So why didn't I love it? You're basically stranded very far from everything if you stay here with no car, and they charge you to drive you into town. The restaurant is not good at all (despite nice service) and I didn't really enjoy a single meal -... More

Spent the Easter holidays with my Partner (who works in Vilankulous) at the Resort. What an amazing time we had, so relaxing. We bought a fish in town and the chef went out of his way to prepare it for us; with our sauce that we asked him to prepare. Our room was the 1st one, so close to everything.... More

I've been three nights in Villas do Indico with a couple of friends. It couldn't be better for a relaxed time in this remote place. Our room was just in front of an empty beach! Food is great and chef is more than happy to spend time with you before preparing the meals, which were always great. Try the massage.... More

The place is nice, and we were the only ones there. On a first glimpse, the place is fabulous but when you look into little details, you then realize, it needs some upgrading as it starts to look old and run down. There tile around the pool is dangerous and you have to be carefull not to cut yourself. It... More

Alright, I'm usually not the type to write bad reviews unless they are warranted. I can usually look over the minor shortcomings of a hotel and see the positive, but there were simply too many glaring issues I had with this establishment. To begin with, upon choosing to stay here, the hotel requested that I put a deposit down. I... More

Beautiful location, very remote so perfect for complete peace and relaxation. Food was fantastic and the team are incredibly helpful. Thy excursion to Santa Carolina was really good and the island itself beautiful. If you are looking for a complete escape, for sleeping, sun and good food this is the place to go.

Having travelled 10km along a dirt track we didn't think we could turn around and leave immediately after seeing the "campsite" offered by this place. Campers are stuck out the back where they have to trudge through black, dirty sand and gnawed dog bones. Otherwise the place looks very luxurious. Upon closer inspection we found that you had to wear... More

Unfortunely, due to some personal incidents, we could not stay in this lodge, but Javier was very kind and helpful in every question we asked him! We are looking forward to staying at yours next time! Thank you so much Javier! See you next time!
