Our trip was to celebrate our honeymoon and the resort, staff, and island offered us the best way to begin our new life journey together. The location, views, and serenity were beyond our expectations. Privacy and romance is there is you desire, while it is also easy to socialize and enjoy the open spaces/pools/restaurants and the company of other guests and staff if you also choose. The activities list is full and well encompassing. Food is of the highest quality and staff do not rest until you appear more than satisfied. All staff are of the most professional manner and go way out of their way to make your that your stay is exactly how you prefer and envision. There is not enough space to write or words to justify the true paradise that rests within Anantara Bazaruto. All that remains is to say thanks. Cannot imagine how anyone could be disappointed.

We spent 6 nights at this beautiful resort with our 4 teenagers. It was a truly a memorable week. There are many reasons for this:
Firstly the location is truly magical. A remote island with beautiful beaches, shimmering waters set against surreal sand dunes. The sunsets are unforgettable and stars are night make you feel you’re on a film set.
Secondly the resort has gone through extensive renovations over the last year so that all the previous reviews that point to outdated nature of the room are now completely off the mark. Our rooms were large, luxurious, most comfortable beds, two showers (one outside), bath for 2 people, generously stocked free mini bar and all have magnificent views. Each room has also own WiFi router which means excellent connection. The common areas are also very pleasant including pools and restaurants. Spa equally surreal in its beauty.
Thirdly, notwithstanding the luxury and branded nature of the resort the local indigenous population are at the heart of it. 70pct of the staff are from the village next door and the staff does genuinely care about delivering the best service with great pride.
Fourthly, the activities are plentiful and are by and large unique and reasonably valued. Whale and dolphins watching, sand dune, diving with sharks, water skiing into sunset on still waters...all amazing stuff.
Finally the food is fresh, home grown fruit and veg and of course fish straight the daily catch. The gem however is chef Donaldson. He went miles out of his way to ensure that our somewhat difficult requirements would be always satisfied without ever compromising on taste or presentation.
Overall if you want a genuine, versatile and original luxury beach experience, this resort is a no brainer.

The location was perfect and as expected, the cuisine and service were of a high standard, our room was a family villa and perfectly accommodated 4 adults and our young son. The staff at all time were courteous friendly and could not do enough to help, despite the size of the resort we never found the location to be too big or difficult to get around a golf cart service was always available to take us where ever we wanted to go. The resort was very peaceful and quiet at all times, a perfect location to unwind. Our only criticism is that all activities are additional despite our agent confirming that one snorkeling trip was included each day in our package. The activities are excellent but extremely expensive especially when you are staying as a family for a week you can easily spend 100 to 200 USD per person per day on additional, snorkeling, diving fishing or excursions. we would recommend the location and accommodation but have reservations due to the high cost of participating in activities as a family.

Dear NMPKenney,

Many thanks for taking the time to share your detailed feedbacks with our TripAdvisor community. I am pleased that our team members, rooms & location could meet your expectation. I apologies for the unfortunate inaccuracy regarding the complementary daily snorkeling tour. We hope our tour offered as a gesture would have pleased your family and your little boy!

Our complementary activities included on our packages includes bicycle, kayaks, paddle-boards, tennis, volley ball, a kids playroom, as well as a complementary local dhow excursion for each guest staying with us. Our motorized watersport activities prices are unfortunately impacted by the high fuel cost. We apologies if this could not satisfy your family.

We were glad to host your family for this birthday celebration and hope you keep great memories of our stay with us. We look forward to welcome you and your family and friend in the near future for another wonderful experience.

Warm regards | Marine B. - Rooms Division Manager

A gem of a resort on a beautiful island. The resort is small enough to provide a very personal experience but also provides a wide range of activities (at extra cost) to keep the whole family happy. But what really makes it a five star experience is the staff who are incredibly smiley, friendly and attentive - they made our stay incredibly special. It's not the cheapest place to stay but, for a special holiday, I would recommend it 100%. We will always treasure the memories of our time there.
