November 13, 14, 15 & 16: Mozambique

We will rise early this morning for our transfer from More Quarters to the Cape Town Airport to meet the flights via Johannesburg to Vilanculos. Upon arrival in Mozambique, we will proceed through customs and immigration and on to meet our private transfer to our exclusive villa on the ocean. Vilanculos is well known as the gateway to the Bazaruto Archipelago and was one of Mozambique’s first well known tourist destinations. The town itself is only about 5km long filled with all the amenities needed to make your visit comfortable yet local. Just beyond the bay of Vilanculos, lie the chain of 5 islands comprising the Bazaruto Archipelago, a Marine National Park, hosting over 1200 species of fish.

Our stay includes non-motorized beach activities. One day we'll head out to explore the town with our local guide, including the market, a visit to the Machilla Magic handcraft gift center (a community upliftment project ), and a stop at Chef Jorge’s baracca (bar).

Villa Santorini

Included in your trip: 4 nights Villa Santorini. All meals and local drinks.

Villa Santorini

The elegant interior furnishings and décor of Villa Santorini, echo the hues and flow of the natural surrounds. Five sea-fronting, air-conditioned, en suite bedrooms, each with a private balcony, may be configured to 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 the perfect beach escape.

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 a staircase to the beach.
The Villa’s in-house management couple, head chef Jorge, and other attending staff, are all on hand to assist guests with any requirements. Vegetables and herbs from the Villa’s own garden and the option of the day’s fresh sea harvest, complement the daily tantalizing menus. Special dietary requirements can be accommodated. Complimentary child minding services are available by arrangement together with fun childrens’ pastimes. On-site Spa treatments are a heavenly option.


Explore, island hop, snorkel, laze in the warm Indian Ocean or around the courtyard pool dreaming of dinner, prepared by the expert chef. Listen to the tinkle of ice, perched on the lip of the martini pool or to the slap of waves against fishing dhows while being massaged on the viewing deck. The choices and our contact list are endless. It’s the perfect seaside holiday: a sprawling villa with extensive and enchanting hideaways.
