Why we love &Beyond Benguerra Lodge

&Beyond Benguerra Island

&Beyond Benguerra Lodge is situated on Benguerra Island in the Bazaruto Archipelago in Mozambique and offers Honeymoons and Family accommodation at its very best. Green vegetation, blue seas and white sands surround this North African style lodge on Benguerra Island.

Delightful rustic luxury and charm as well as top class cuisine and service radiate from this Mozambique Island Holiday Resort.

Luxurious accommodation in 10 huge stone and thatch open-plan Casinhas, with comfortable open-plan lounges, shuttered windows and enormous, shiny copper bathtubs. A large deck with Jacuzzi plunge pool, fantastic sea views and an outdoor thatched gazebo for starlit dinners complete the romance.

Set under thatch, both casinhas and cabanas boast elegant four-poster beds with white linen canopies and comfortable day beds. Spacious bathrooms feature generous bathtubs big enough for two, while outdoor showers decorated with hand-painted tiles offer an opportunity to enjoy your ablutions while listening to the nearby whisper of the waves.

Ideal for families or groups, the Casa Familia boasts three bedrooms, each with its own ensuite bathroom, as well as private swimming pool set on the sheltered wooden veranda.

Children of all ages are welcome at Benguerra Lodge and the bungalows which are set back from the beach accommodation 2 adults & a child under 12 with ease.

The main area includes a small curio shop, lovely bar and large open-sided lounge area with books, chess and other board games. Dinners are often served outside on the deck or on the beach. The beach bar has been designed from an old dhow sailing boat with views to the western sinking sun.

A fully equipped diving centre is the start of salt water and deep water fly-fishing adventures in the Archipelago – snorkelling trips, diving, island hopping tours, dhow cruises, kayaking, island land rover tours and horse-riding.

After days filled with discovery, weary muscles relax and recharge under the magical attentions of the masseuses in the massage sala.
