The Archipelago Resort is the perfect place to forget the stress of day-to-day life, soak up the sun and recharge your batteries. Overlooking a secluded beach to the south of Vilankulos on Mozambique s exotic coastline, the 18 spacious thatched lodges are built from timber on raised hardwood decks, lending a truly tropical atmosphere to the resort. This is accentuated by the awe-inspiring sea views, which can be taken in from expansive balconies. For those who do not wish to cook, the amazing Sand Dollar Restaurant serves a tasty menu of ocean fresh fish, calamari, crayfish, prawns as well as Mozambican piri-piri chicken and hamburgers. The focal point is the resort s stunning swimming pool, where guests can enjoy a pre arranged braai or spend many languid hours soaking up the breathtaking view of the palm-fringed beach and the verdant Bazaruto Archipelago one of the most popular tourist attractions in Africa. For the more adventurous, there is the prospect of uncovering previously unexplored dive sites immersed in the lustrous beauty of a tropical underwater paradise, investigating the unspoilt beauty of the Archipelago and enjoying lazy dhow trips along the coast.
