Privacy of our room and pool was excellent. Loved the snorkeling excursion to that beautiful and unspoiled "alive" reef. Helicopter arrival very exciting. The service was excellent, as was the cuisine. Issues with our room were addressed immediately and we were upgraded to offset any inconveniences. The spa massages were first rate. The staff was so warm and accommodation, including...

The fly in to the island by helicopter is a very special expirience and it makes the arrival on the island to an outstanding "special effect". The sunsets were almost every day marvelous and we enjoyed the calm and natural beauty, which you still find on the island. Diving and swimming was quiet a task, because of the strong low...

activities are in general too expensive, especially in groups, e.g. 75 USD for Snorkeling per person or Body massage 60 minutes 90 USD. The average salaries are or sure low and hardly believe, that it needs an European price level for such activities!

This island is a perfect destination for a quiet, relaxing retreat, or a special celebration. Tucked away in the Bazaruto Archipelago it must be reached by helicopter (8 minutes) from Vilankulos, Mozambique. A bird's eye view of this splendid coast, gives you a different perspective of the beauty of Africa. It is a hidden gem where nature, culture, community and...

Fantastic setting. One feels just isolated enough to really relax. Love the fact that the locals walk along the beach in front from time to time. Makes the place feel 'real'. Food was good but i would have preferred simpler food really well made. Food is good but, to my taste, the style of the food is too international. A...
