Great island resort experience! Given the remoteness, the resort and facilities were exceptional. Food was fantastic and plenty of it! (Watch out for the large bowl of Chilli on the buffet!) The cultural experience and community engagement was exceptional- plenty of staffing and training from local villages which has been successful. Rooms were great and the spa with views was... More

From the moment we arrived -- to the warm welcome and sounds of a high energy local singing and dancing troupe, until the moment we left we felt very 'cared for'. The resort feels wonderfully remote -- no other hotel or resort is in sight. Only a beach that stretches forever. It feels very private. Every staff member says hello,... More

Came here for a week following a safari in Krugar looking to relax. What an island paradise to relax in!!! We stayed in an ocean pool villa which was second to none and the sunsets from the deck were spectacular. The staff could not do enough for you, super friendly and very attentive. The food was fantastic also. If you... More

Just returned from the first African adventure for our three kids aged 10, 8 and 6 and what a great time it was. Quick shout out to Gisela at Mozambique Tourism for arranging such a great break in the Kruger and then at Bazaruto for us, and dealing with the myriad queries and problems my disorganisation caused.

We spent the last 4 nights of our Honeymoon here and it was nothing short of amazing. Everything from the Welcome to check-in and "orientation" to the activities and Spa options were wonderful. Even the check out and airport transfers were flawlessly planned out.

A 45 minute boat ride after a ten minute bus ride from the airport brings you to the resort.
