Villa Santorini

The white walled, multi-tiered landmark of Villa Santorini Mozambique, commands panoramic views across the expanse of Vilanculos Bay from its private, elevated position. It's one of our Top 5 African Safari Lodges for the view with good reason! 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. 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. 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. A staircase leads down from the Villa to the beach.
