There are so many reasons why you should book a Mozambique villa. For a start, Mozambique villas promise exceptional value for money. The broad range of cottages in this holiday destination usually offer luxury accommodation in secluded settings with modern facilities and wonderful views. In addition, when you choose a villa above a hotel or beach lodge, you are getting added privacy in a larger space where you can enjoy your own dinners on your own terrace while marvelling at the ocean vistas.
What you get in Mozambique Villa
Many Mozambique villas offer special packages for honeymoons, families, out of season periods and more so you need to check all of these before you make your selection. Most villas in Mozambique feature state of the art facilities to enhance your enjoyment: huge beds, space and light, en-suite bathrooms often with deep bathtubs, outside showers, private decks with sun beds and sometimes plunge pools, elegant and quality furnishings and more. You can usually tuck into the stocked mini bar and make your own tea and coffee while enjoying the air-conditioning and complimentary toiletries.
Southern Mozambique Villas
You cannot go wrong with a Mozambique villa in the deep south near Maputo (Machangulo Beach Lodge), or in Vilankulo which overlooks the Bazaruto Archipelago (Villa Santorini and Pambele). Villas on the Mozambique islands offer some of the most spectacular and secluded holiday accommodation venues. Here, elegance is the key word and individual decor tasteful and comfortable (Anantara Bazaruto, Benguerra Lodge, Azura Benguerra, Magaruque Villas).
Central Coastline Villas
You have to start in Vilankulo to get to the Bazaruto Archipelago so stay in the attractive Villa Do Paraiso, footsteps away from the beach. This Mozambique beach resort features six large self-catering villas overlooking the Indian Ocean on Mahaque Beach – only 15 kilometres from Vilanculos International Airport. Or choose the luxurious, multi-level Villa Santorini, a large white guest house looking out over the ocean and comprising five tastefully decorated en-suite rooms for 14 guests. Completely private in its forested seclusion, this Mozambique villa has a Greek-like ambience: blues and whites, large arched windows, inviting lime-washed furniture and attractive mosaics.
Quirimbas Archipelago Villas
The Quirimbas Archipelago is off the beaten track and offers untouched island paradises – on Ibo, Vamizi and Quilalea islands. Have you heard about Vamizi Island’s collection of luxury villas, expertly designed with sustainable development and responsible tourism in mind? Here in the Quirimbas Archipelago, villas are private, sumptuous and richly rustic. On Quilalea Island, a 5-star luxury for 18 guests in only nine villas at Azura Quilalea is the epitomy of complete solitude. Families will love the revamped accommodation at Anantara Medjumbe Island Resort & Spa in 13 charmingly luxurious chalets decked out in crisp blues and whites to reflect the sea and beach environment in spacious, comfortable seaside havens.
Another reason why you should book your Mozambique villa is the choice of outdoor activities. Yes, you can expect a range of wonderful water sports including diving, snorkelling, kayaking and windsurfing. New trends include kite surfing and stand up paddle boarding while most guests love the traditional Dhow cruises, island hopping safaris and ocean safaris. You can also swim with dolphins at selected villas. Some villas offer spa treatments and wellness centres where guests can do gym while others offer special dining experiences and sports such as tennis, qolf, birding and dune boarding. It is best to research what you want to do and book accordingly.
Getting your Select Villa
Getting to Mozambique usually involves flying in from South Africa or overseas to Maputo, Vilanculos, Pemba or Inhambane and making your way to your villa with their help. Most luxury accommodation venues in Mozambique send a representative to fetch their guests at airports and take them by air or boat to their suites. Check these details with your consultant when you book.
