We went there in February 2014 and no words can describe how awesome this venue is. The food, service, drinks, accommodation, swimming pool and beach is all 5 star. If you really want a quiet relaxing holiday then Pestana is definitely the place to go to.

From the time of co-ordination of flights (organised by Mozambique Tours) through to the transfers, dedicated chef, housekeeping, dedicated 4x4 with gilly & the boat hire with skipper was excellent. The hosts Louie & Pauline went out of their way to ensure our comfort & satisfaction. Fishing was not too great but had a fab time.

The resort was quiet (and is was supposed to be high season)... We'd booked a central beach villa and the quality was great. Cleaning staff did a good job and the designs they came up with for the towels and pillows each night was good fun. But the food was just OK and while the serving staff were OK, they...

My wife and I booked a stay at Pestana Bazaruto Lodge as a part of our honeymoon to Southern Africa in January 2016. We booked the hotel based upon good reviews and good standards. We booked a beach front room at the hotel back in October 2015 and we booked it for January 11 - January 17. I had good...

Pestana Bazaruto Lodge has ruined my holidays. I had a reservation since October, and three days before my check-in day, I was told by the flight company to Bazaruto (I am very grateful to CR Aviation) that Pestana Bazaruto was closed for refurbishment. I tried to contact them all the day and at last they told me that it was...

I spent a week at the Lodge with my 2 daughters, 12 and 10, in August 2015. We had a really wonderful time in a beautiful, tranquil and very much off-the-beaten-track place. Getting there included a wonderful small plane trip over the sea from Vilancoulos giving amazing photo opportunities. The Lodge is comfortable if a little rustic and beginning to...

Our family (2 adults, 2 children ,5 and 8) stayed 4 nights at Pestana lodge Oct. 2015. Overall we had a fabulous time! The location is stunning. Taking the plane over the turquoise water and getting an aerial view was a great start. The chalets are clean and comfortable with just enough room. I LOVE the outdoor shower. Patrick did...

The only downside to this lodge is getting to it! It is on a sandy island a few miles from Vilanculos, Mozambique. We flew from the local airport in a small aircraft and the journey took just 20 minutes. The difficulty was the lengthy customs in Vilanculos airport and the eager porters - remember to tip them. Once on the...
