An Idyllic, Luxury Island Getaway for Eight Guests at the Acclaimed & Beyond Benguerra Island

 

A MAGICAL INDIAN OCEAN ADVENTURE HAVEN

 

Step onto your private charter for a quick flight to Mozambique. On landing in Vilanculos, guests will be whisked away by helicopter to the spectacular paradise of &Beyond Benguerra Island for a three-night stay in a luxurious casinha. Benguerra Island is a luxury beach holiday destination where time stands still. Surrounded by warm waters and a pristine coral reef teeming with marine life within the protected marine reserve of the Bazaruto Archipelago National Park, the island offers a landscape of idyllic beaches, inland freshwater lakes and towering dunes.

The lodge lies sheltered within the canopy of an indigenous forest and swaying palm trees and welcoming guest areas offer views of the lush tropical garden and the ocean beyond. Under the shade of straw-covered wooden awnings, comfortable loungers are set up around the lodge’s rim flow swimming pool. The vibrant dhow-inspired bar is the hub of the lodge, offering the perfect setting to sip on a signature cocktail.

The casinhas boast a light and airy colour scheme that combines tropical chic with a distinctly African feel. Small decorative pieces hint at reminders of the area’s Portuguese heritage. After a successful day of adventures, retreat to the comfort of a private timber deck where a rim flow pool, private sala, hanging daybed and sun loungers await.

Your stay includes two scuba diving sessions per day (for those who are fully certified) to dive sites such as the famous Two Mile Reef. A fully equipped PADI dive centre offers a full range of exciting diving adventures to suit
every guest as well as a host of courses (at additional cost) . Other activities include sea kayaking, scheduled snorkelling trips, an island expedition and community tour, a sunset dhow cruise around the sheltered bay and a
castaway picnic on a remote section of the island.
