Quilalea takes understated luxury to a whole new level. We were particularly impressed with:
- The rooms are airy, tastefully decorated and ours (a sunrise villa) opened out onto a non-swimming beach which meant that it was pretty much totally private
- The food was excellent without being too heavy and over-the top.The venue for each meal is a surprise - sometimes the beach or under the trees which really makes you feel like you have the island to yourself.
- Service is top-class but very subtle - you don't ever feel like you are bring fawned over but you never want for anything
- We did some great dives with the well run dive operation, especially good sightings of turtles as well as a good selection of game fish as well as smaller critters and a good variety of coral.
- The helicpoter ride is spectacular as well as beiing great fun and making you feel like the rich-and-famous.
- The Quirimbas are fabulously isolated and unspoilt. We were pleasantly surprised by the great bird- and plant-life on the island with beeaters nesting on the ground between the villas and magnificent baobabs
Definitely worth the price!
