This idyllic lodge is situated on the western side of the exquisite Benguerra Island. We were welcomed off the helicopter by Bianca who was an excellent hostess for the week. We were introduced to our butler Piva (I hope I've spelt it right!). All of the staff were absolutely excellent throughout the week. They all greeted us and were very...

Visited island for a few days and really amazing part of Mozambique with green shade waters and deserted beaches. Complete privacy and exclusivity, accommodation in form of very large (80 Sqm?) lodges each with plunge pool, open air showers and direct access to the sea. Snorkelling also exceptional, almost Red Sea type. Very laid back and relaxing.

It is all about the people isn't it? At the And Beyond Benguerra Lodge everything is perfect, from the food crafted by chef Victorino to the dhow sailors, managers, private butlers and every person you interact with. It is one of the few places in the world you are able to retire to the privacy of your villa but also...

It is fairly shocking to have read the previous review, as it does not reflect the experience my wife and I had at Benguerra, or any andBeyond property, at all. It more sounds like someone who probably should sit in a boring hotel in a large city, instead of enjoying the incredible, want for not, bespoke experience we received at...

We stayed here for our last four nights of an amazing &Beyond safari trip, with this place supposed to be the 'icing on the cake'. Having stayed at four previous &Beyond properties & noting the high price of staying here, we had very high expectations. Our first experience in Mozambique, was a rediculously disorganised helicopter transfer, where despite being the...

Having visited Mnemba last year we decided to visit Benguerra Island off Mozambique this year. Very accessible from Johannesburg - a 1hr 40min flight to Villancoulos and then a 10 minute helicopter ride to the island. Helicopter is a necessity due to the huge tidal changes which make the island inaccessible at low tide. We arrived to the traditional singing...

This was the last stop on a 5-week trip to Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Mozambique undertaken in Sep/Oct 2016. After 4 week of safari – 5.30am starts and bumpy 4-wheel drives – to say we were looking forward to peace and rest is an understatement and we were not let down. This must be one of the best and most...

andBeyond >> Azura. It's a no brainer. First, the rooms are bigger/nicer. All of the bungalows are very spacious and they really executed beautifully on the 2015 remodel. Just such an incredibly romantic setting. Contrasting to Azura, I went for a run on the beach and could see the Azura bungalows, and you could tell they were less spacious, pushed...

What an amazing honeymoon we had at andBeyond Benguerra Island - from the moment we stepped off the plane in Vilanculos, the service and attention to detail was spectacular. We were greeted by the manager Thys, who was warm, entertaining and engaging throughout our stay, as well as Bianca and Heilke who seemed to be everywhere. Over our 6 nights,...

Wow!
