The white walled, multi-tiered landmark of Santorini Mozambique, commands panoramic views across the expanse of Vilanculos Bay from its private, elevated position. It is situated a few kilometers north of the mainland coastal town of Vilanculos, surrounded by dense coastal vegetation and fronted by its own stretch of beach.

Vilanculos is serviced by regular flights and road access. Just beyond the bay of Vilanculos, lies the underwater wonderland of the Bazaruto Archipelago, a Marine National Park.

Elegant interiors echo the space and flow of the natural surrounds. Five sea- fronting, air-conditioned, en-suite bedrooms, each with private balconies, accommodate 10 adults or alternatively 8 adults and 6 children.

The multifaceted living area, comprising a lounge, TV room and library, ocean facing deck with martini pool, secluded patios, wind-protected courtyard pool, 24-hour guest beverage-kitchen and a range of communal and intimate dining spaces, provides guests with a wide range of ensemble and private living, relaxation and dining options.

The shaded pool courtyard holds claim to an eternal view and an al fresco seating area beside a pizza oven and gas BBQ. The ocean front deck has a pale blue martini pool which faces directly onto the sea. Relax, meditate, entertain on the covered sala, upstairs from the courtyard. Tucked below this is another deck for private massages or romantic dinners.

The villa has two kitchens – one where outstanding meals are prepared by our resident Mozambican chefs. The other is purely for guest use should they wish to help themselves to an ice cold beverage, a cappuccino or perhaps a glass of wine of their choice. However, friendly and personal waiter service is always available.

The Villa’s in-house management and staff are on hand to attend to any requirements. Tantalizing daily menus are on offer and special dietary requirements accommodated. Complimentary child minding services and fun pastimes are available. On-site Spa treatments are a heavenly option.

Cost included activities include free transfers to Vilanculos; a guided day tour of the town’s markets and tourist attractions; an island trip and picnic; kayaking, stand up paddleboarding, and sandboarding. The Villa’s 27-foot boat may be chartered for deep sea fishing. Local operators offer dhow sailing trips, scuba diving, snorkeling, guided kitesurfing, horse and camel safaris.

This is a place and space where the rhythm of the tides marks the time

and a world of natural beauty fills the pauses.
