Santorini Mozambique, Vilanculos

Experience the turquoise waters and spectacular underwater life – including dolphins, turtles and 2,000 species of fish – of the Bazaruto Archipelago from the comfort of the majestic Santorini Mozambique.

Every corner of the property – from the white-washed walls to the Greek-inspired furnishings – has been carefully designed to complement the idyllic surroundings. There are five beautiful suites in the main building plus two exclusive villas, each with elegant en-suite bathrooms, king or queen sized beds and fabulous ocean views. The open-plan main villa boasts multiple living and dining spaces, as well as a tranquil pool courtyard with an al fresco seating area overlooking the bay.  

The up and coming coastal town of Vilanculos is famed as the gateway to the Bazaruto Archipelago, a string of paradise islands known as the ‘Pearl of the Indian Ocean’. Here you can stroll along glorious sandy beaches, swim in clear blue waters and enjoy some of the best scuba diving on the planet. Santorini Mozambique offers a multitude of activities that allow guests to make the most out of the exquisite location, from scuba diving tours and kite surfing to horse riding, dhow safaris and even helicopter rides.
