The Archipelago Resort is the perfect place to forget the stress of day-today
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 wooden lodges are built from timber on raised hardwood decks and
nestle under cozy thatched roofs, lending a truly tropical atmosphere to the resort.
This is accentuated by the awe-inspiring sea views available from your chalet,
which can be taken in from expansive balconies.
The focal point is the resort s
stunning swimming pool, where guests can while away 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.
