We spent the last week of our honeymoon at Casa Rex after a week on safari in Botswana and four days at Vic Falls. We were ready for a rest and this was the perfect place to relax...
Casa Rex is situated on an elevation overlooking the Bazaruto Archipelago and views over the bay provided the perfect backdrop of white sands and aquamarine water. The gardens are immaculately kept and the two small pools are cleaned daily.
The restaurant offers a good choice of dishes on the menu and it is clear that good food is a key part of the experience at the hotel. The open kitchen is on show for all to see and the food is consistently good with well presented dishes made from fresh ingredients and the portions are generous. The prawn and coconut curry was so good we had it twice!!
We stayed in two different rooms during the week and both were modern and authentic with nice touches like the large mosquito nets hung from the ceiling as well as flowers placed on the bed in the evening.
But best of all, the people... Mel, Susanna, Anna were friendly and helpful throughout our stay and nothing was too much trouble for them.
All in all a great stay, highly recommended!
