I can only say great things about this resort and the island of Bazaruto.
Firstly though, it is a journey to get there and Vilankulos airport is certainly not the greatest, it was a bit chaotic when we arrived, but you tend to expect this being a remote area in Mozambique with a few lodges around. If you come with an open mind to that, it won’t bother you as much.
The short flight over to Indigo Bay from Vilankulos was breathtaking, I had never seen water that colour before, have your camera on standby. The island itself is beautiful with massive dunes.
The resort has about 35 – 40 chalets/villas (chalets are divine) but well spread out and it felt as though we had the whole beach to ourselves. The staff are well trained and very friendly.
The food – This really was a highlight and exceeded our expectations considerably, the 5 course meal we had in particular was outstanding and one of the best I have ever had.
Breakfast was excellent and though lunch had a limited menu, it was still all very good.
The restaurant staff were well trained and we enjoyed them all.
There are plenty of activities, the horse ride up the dunes was fantastic. The Spa is a definite must, the views alone are spectacular.
All in all a holiday of a lifetime and we hope to return again sometime in the future. Need to start saving though.
