As you arrive at Casa Rex Boutique Hotel, you will instantly feel at peace - surrounded by the lush gardens overlooking the turquoise crystal blue waters of the Indian Ocean. Our room types are spacious & comfortable, each with an individual style and breezy perspective of the bay. Wireless internet access is found throughout the hotel for your convenience & for business traffic, we have conference facilities. The lounge and dining area, with custom crafted wood furniture and fittings and large sofas will make you feel right at home.... Casa Rex is renowned for its excellent open air a la carte restaurant, including a magnificent array of fresh seafood dishes and imported wines, many guests like to try the crisp local beer. A range of activities are available from Casa Rex including scuba diving and snorkeling at magnificent world renowned sites. Unbelievable deep sea fishing is most popular here & one has the opportunity to fish multiple areas around and past the islands. Go on an island dhow safari, or visit the islands - Bazaruto, Benguerra, Margaruque & Santa Carolina - by motorized boat. Or try your hand at the exhilarating kite surfing, with kiting safaris for the more experienced. Whale watching is best from August to October, and sunset cruises in traditional dhows a favorite with most holiday-makers . If you want a change from being on and in the water, try horse riding along the beach. Explore the local market, schools and visit the various craft shops for a taste of the local culture. After an active day, relax with Spa treatments from our visiting therapists, sip sundowners on the Casa Rex terrace or refresh yourself in one of our 2 sparkling swimming pools overlooking the harbor - the perfect way to end a day.....or begin one!

I don’t need luxury but cleanliness is a must. I was not disappointed in that department. The rustic decor and ambiance lend to a restful little hideaway with an exquisite view of the ocean. Service and staff are excellent. The people in and out of the hotel were very friendly

We enjoyed having you stay with us & thank you for your positive & descriptive feedback about the decor, views, ambience, service & food! All our activities are out-sourced, so yes it is a pity about the diving - hopefully next time you can get a better idea ahead of time, we will always be happy to help with this as much as we can. There certainly should have been Wifi available in the rooms, we apologize for that, this must have been a technical difficulty during your stay. Please come again, we would be delighted to have you, especially since you seemed to have really appreciated all the main points which make Casa Rex such a gem. The staff sincerely thanks you for their mention!

Casa Rex is a relatively small hotel located on top of the bank, overlooking the beach and the blue ocean. The beach can be reached by pretty exhausting staircase. We took it as a bit of exercise, but if you have some leg or joint issues it will be a bit hard to tackle. We had a

Only stayed one night. Food was very nice. Beautiful view of the bay. Room is adequate. Beach is a short walk away. Two pools on site. A bit of old world charm. Service provided was good. May still need more improvements.

Hello Jessica, I know Vilanculos pretty well because I lived there for several years. The town is a save place to stay, don't worry. Lots of things to do and see there. Casa Rex is ok although the service and quality of food went down in the last year. If you have the budget stay in one of the island lodges for at least a couple of days. Check out activity centre at Luxus for day trips. Have fun.
