Review: Bahia Mar Club, Mozambique


Book A Stay

Mozambique is a southern African nation whose long Indian Ocean coastline boasts dune-fringed beaches, turquoise waters and swaying palms. Colonial-style architecture, a fascinating culture and a taste of adventure await the traveller. Luxury accommodation, in the shape of Bahia Mar Club Boutique Hotel, is most welcome; somewhere very comfortable to rest your head amidst your escapades will certainly not go amiss!


Bahia Mar Club is located on the palm fringed beaches and azure waters of the Indian Ocean in Vilankulo towards the south of mainland Mozambique. The hotel is perfectly located to soak up the fabulous beauty of the Bazaruto Archipelago, which has reefs that protect rare marine life including dugongs, as well as experiencing the colourful local culture. Flights from London to Vilankulo take less than 15 hours with a connection in Johannesburg

Style & Character

The resort offers modern boutique accommodation with a chic and stylish finish. Exposed brick lends a rustic look, and is complimented beautifully with contemporary white decor to create an elegant feel. The sea views are fabulous and the hotel really makes the most of them with most of the rooms overlooking the Indian Ocean.

Facilities include a luxury spa, well-appointed gym and pool. The Bahia Mar SPA is a calming space that uses a range of organic, essential oils to create an aroma wellness program. Indulge in a variety of decadent treatments and leave refreshed and revitalised. The impressive gym is equipped with the latest in cardiovascular and muscle toning apparatus.

For accommodation choose between a Sea View Bedroom or a Beach Luxury Suite. The beautiful rooms are all ensuite with queen sized beds and a large veranda with sun loungers, the beautiful view looks out over the Bazaruto Islands. The Beach Suites​ are stunning, pied-à-terre luxury self-catering units which include a king size bed, TV lounge, fully equipped kitchenette, private barbecue, terrace with sun loungers and private splash pool. If you’re travelling with the family, go for the Family Unit, they consist of the Beach Suite with two double Sea View Bedrooms on the first floor. Or an ideal treat for a couple would be the Presidential Suite, similar to the Beach Suites but they also include a beautiful private garden and just that little bit more privacy.

Food & Drink

The breakfast comes highly recommended here and the newly launched A-La-Carte menu is simply delicious. Chef Nelson and his kitchen team pride themselves on using fresh ingredients to create local delicacies and are happy to cater to vegan diets as well as providing detox or weight loss options. The bar serves a great range of cocktails and fresh fruit smoothies; also perfect sampled by the infinity pool.
