“Wonderful retreat”
Reviewed December 22, 2009

Villa do Paraiso was everything and more.

We decided to go self catering this time round and by the time we arrived at the Villa - our shopping had been done - from a list issued to us before arrival.

Direct flights from Johannesburg were pleasant, on time and safe.

The Villas are absolutely spotless and serviced by a houseman who also does all the required cooking if you so wish. The houseman and ground staff keep the property in immaculate condition and the resident wild fowl and prolific bird life are awesome.

The bathrooms are state of the art luxury and hot water supplied by gas means no waiting for hot water. DSTV and DVD's kept us entertained.

The beaches are spotless and trips to the Islands are arranged by the Lodge. The water transport was safe and reliable and the crew were most helpful in finding whales and schools of dolphin. A trip to The islands of Bazarutto and Benguerra is a must.

The Villas are enormous with 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms and total each villa has it's own private swimming pool on the decked patio.

The managers always informed us of any special foods that were available and the driver would then purchase the most sublime local prawns for us.

There are many restaurants in the town and we tried them all.

Overall - a wonderful stay and a pleasant self catering experience.
