Situated in a protected marine conservation area, &Beyond Benguerra offers pristine beach and unspoiled coral reefs teaming with marine life.  Located on Benguerra Island, the second largest island in the Bazaruto Archipelago, the lodge is set on a deep lagoon unaffected by the tides which makes it perfect for swimming and snorkelling.  The area is known for its premier dive sites and thrilling deep sea fishing  in the Mozambique Channel that runs alongside the island.  Recently renovated the lodge boasts a fresh island feel with lush tropical gardens.  Guests can relax on their expansive private decks or enjoy an al fresco meal with toes in the sand at the colourful dhow style beach bar.

The Casa Familia is the perfect option for families traveling with children.  With three en suite bedrooms as well as a private swimming pool on a sheltered wooden verandah, the Casa is situated only a few meters away from the beach.  The Casa Familia can accommodate a maximum of four adults and four children and features all the same luxury amenities and facilities found in the other room types.


Guests can enjoy delightful dishes served either on beach, in the stylish dining room or sunny decks of the main lounge or even in the privacy of their room.  A lunch time favourite is a castaway picnic in the middle of soaring sand dunes, leaving you feeling as if you are the only ones on the island.  Menus are planned around the freshest local ingredients available as well as a selection of fine seafood from the bounty of the Indian Ocean.


Benguerra Island offers a variety of activities both on land and in the water to keep guests entertained during their stay.  Water based activities to choose from includes scuba diving, snorkeling and dhow cruises. On land there are island expeditions, castaway picnics and horse riding to enjoy.  Or let one of the professional spa therapists ease away tensions from tired muscles whilst you listen to the gentle sound of the waves.

What we think of it
