Fabulous beach resort - beautiful with tide in or out! Clever A frame cabanas set in the bush and right on the beach. A walk on the beach to Breakfast never failed to please. Perfect weather with only one wild day. Great trip to Paradise Island & around the island. Awesome view over the Ocean whilst flying in. Slightly too...

The reason I went to Moz was the paradise beaches of the Bazaruto archipelago. As I am not the boss of a major crime syndicate or a rock star, I could'nt afford Benguerra island. Pestana is a lot cheaper and on the pictures, it looks almost as good. Situated on the north western shore on Bazaruto island, the main building...

We were initially booked into a "family lodge" which is sort of a 2 bedroom. We were two adult couples, which didn't work for us (it's really designed for parents with kids) and they willingly moved us to two individual buildings. The "rooms" are individual buildings with a bedroom, large bathroom ares (separate WC) and attached outdoor shower. All very...

The four flights from Botswana were well worth the effort to enjoy this slice of paradise. The dining, bar and pool area had a understated island vibe and the sunset enjoyed from anywhere was spectacular. The twice-daily drop off to Dolphin Bay more than compensated for the huge low tide. We walked there the first day and were surprised at...

Just spent 10 days at Pestana Bazaruto Lodge & what a beautiful place! From the day I arrived I was greeted with a huge smile from Celio on the front desk and from thereafter, all the staff I encountered were professional, friendly and fun. The plane trip from Vilanculos was a definite highlight & on the return journey I even...

We have visited Pestana Bazaruto Lodge twice now and for us this is the ultimate island destination so far. The accommodation is not that luxurious but the food is fantastic, especially the fresh seafood daily. The most beautiful reefs for snorkeling and diving. Day trip to Paradise Island with a seafood barbecue is well recommended. Friendly staff and the spa...

This hotel is in an amazing location so it can do no wrong. I didn't want to come home! getting to the hotel is a bit expensive as it requires a chartered flight but I would pay that money over and over. There wasn't any water in the bay but the hotel arranged a ride to a pristine beach. Free...
