Lush tropical beaches, palm trees, pristine islands and impressive flora and fauna make Vilankulo a very pleasant place to enjoy your fishing trip and experience the best fishing and maybe some diving and coral reefs as well.
In order to stay at Vilankulo we offer three different lodges:
- Vilanculos Beach Lodge
- Villa la Mar Vilanculos
- Vila do Paraiso
Vilanculos Beach Lodge
The lodge is constructed from natural indigenous elements of thatch and local hardwood simbire poles ,which have been combined in perfect harmony with plaster walls and wood frame doors and windows. The result is the relaxed yet stylish finish. The property extends right on to the beach and the lodge buildings are set back about 100m up the ridge, overlooking the sea.
The family Suite is built on stilts and offers a superb view of the ocean and the islands in the distance. It has two en-suite rooms, a comfortable open plan lounge as well as a spacious covered veranda perfect for those early morning cups of coffee or the late afternoon Sundowners. The air-conditioned rooms are large and comfortably appointed with mosquito nets, desk, arm chairs and electronic safes, coffee and tea facilities etc. The en-suite bathrooms boast open shower, double vanity, toilet, bidet, bath gowns, a hairdryer and all amenities.
Additionally there are 22 privately appointed Luxury Bungalows constructed on ironwood stilts with “majeka” (local thatch) roofs and beautiful mahogany floors. All bungalows have en-suite bathrooms with showers, mosquito nets, room safes, coffee and tea facilities, bath robes, a hairdryer and amenities. They are also all air conditioned for your comfort. The bungalows are set amidst lush indigenous gardens with private balconies - most with seaviews which offer exceptional views of the sunrise over the ocean- allowing guests to truly relax and soak up the idyllic atmosphere.
The spacious restaurant offers the choice of dining in doors, or out on the patio under well-designed,
attractive shade sails. For true outdoor dining, the option of dining under the palm trees or next to the pool is available. Traditional Mozambican, Portuguese and international fare is served and whenever possible fresh, scrumptious seafood remains the recommended plate of the day. Breakfast is a typical continental feast – fresh bread, jam, honey, a variety of cereals, yoghurt, fruit, cold meats and cheese with a delicious homemade pastry of the day beautifully crafted by our passionate kitchen team. You are also welcome to order from our a la carte menu for a hot breakfast.
The Restaurant serves breakfast from 7am to 10am and the last dinner request should be made by
20h00 pm. Should you require a breakfast prior to 07h00 please advise our staff of your request and
we will make the necessary arrangements. The pool area has incredible uninterrupted views of the Azure blue ocean as well as of the stunning Archipelago whilst our spectacular infinity pool offers a welcome retreat from the heat of the day. The pool bar, overlooking the gardens, pool and beach, offers a more relaxed atmosphere. A selection of drinks, shooters, and cocktails are available from this fully equipped bar. Our Sunset lounge strategically placed for optimum views of both the sunrise and the sunset is the perfect place to end the day.
The well-kept gardens are an appealing blend of indigenous bush on the slopes around the bungalows and pathways, and tropical lush green palms and lawns of the guest entertainment
areas. The rolling green lawns of the gardens around the main building, pool and pool bar are
peppered with palm trees, offering shade on the hot summer days. Scattered paved areas amongst
the trees offer quiet shaded areas for drinks.
