Where Time Stands Still

Warm waters, pristine coral reefs teeming with marine life, idyllic beaches, inland freshwater lakes and towering sand dunes have shaped this adventure haven.

The lodge lies sheltered within the canopy of an indigenous forest and swaying palm trees. The welcoming guest areas offer views of the lush tropical garden and the ocean beyond. Under the shade of straw covered wooden awnings, inviting comfortable loungers are set up around the lodge’s rim flow swimming pool. A colourfully decorated traditional wooden dhow has been converted into a picturesque beach bar, while the cool surrounds of the massage sala hold the promise of deep relaxation.

SET IN A LUSH ISLAND FOREST

UNINTERRUPTED SEA VIEWS

The lodge has a range of luxurious thatched accommodation. For families or small groups, the exclusive-use Casa Familia is an ideal option with three ensuite bedrooms. Set amidst lush island forest, there are 2 cosy cabanas, ideal for couples or honeymooners, and the slightly larger 10 casinhas. Cabanas and casinhas all offer private timber decks, rim-flow pools, sun loungers and private salas with irresistible hanging daybeds.

STUNNING NATURAL REEFS

ADVENTURE IN & OUT OF THE WATER

Benguerra Island is the second-largest in the archipelago. The interior of the island is interwoven with wetlands, forest and freshwater lakes, and surrounded by a halo of palm-fringed beaches. Enveloped by premier diving sites, the waters promise sightings of tropical fish and Africa’s only population of the rare dugong. The island’s pristine beaches edge onto a lagoon unaffected by tides, making its waters ideal for gentle wading and lazy snorkels.
