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!

We were staying over at Casa Rex again on our recent tour. It's definitely a trusted place with consistently good service, and definitely by far the best food in town! Very recommendable, and we will visit again on the next stop in Vilanculos.

Absolutely loved this hotel. My new husband and I stayed in the honeymoon suite, and it was a great base from which to explore the area. The room was comfortable, spacious and secure. The hotel has a number of tours and activities they offer to arrange on your behalf, and were well priced compared to what we found when shopping around. It is peaceful and very beautiful, and a brisk walk into both town or down the beach to areas busy with tourists and water sports.

Just got done spending a workweek at the Casa Rex and had a pleasant time. The staff were friendly right from pick up to check in. I had a nicely spread out room...I suspect it was probably one of the largest with my own courtyard and porch facing the ocean. The most exciting thing was the restaurant...like most properties I visited in Vilanculos, they were facing the sea but the food at the Casa Rex was also really good. I did not like the fact that the rooms didn’t have TVs and also that the property wasn’t developed all the way to the beachfront and you had to walk down a very steep flight of stairs to the beachfront. Overall it was a pleasant stay and will look forward to a future visit.

Thank you for your positive review & we are glad that all went well. We retain some of the original aesthetic in not having TVs in all rooms, but in the general outside lounge area where guests can sit & have a cocktail, generally relax & chat to other guests should you wish to. However your comment has been well-noted. We hope you get a chance to return!
