The ultimate beach luxury at Bahia Mar Boutique Hotel

Bahia Mar is a stylish and modern boutique hotel located opposite the beautiful Bazaruto Archipelago on the white sandy shores of Vilanculos in Southern Mozambique. It is the perfect base from which to explore the islands, with an array of activities on offer from boat trips, scuba diving, island trips, fishing and kitesurfing, to name a few! This gorgeous little boutique hotel offers spacious and comfortable accommodation and with its great spa, yoga, gym and mouth-watering cuisine, our clients choose Bahia Mar as their home from home on a more affordable beach holiday in Vilanculos.

The views are one of the unique selling points over the green gardens to the infinity pool deck.  Endless incredible turquoise and aqua in color water, and the Bazaruto Islands shining in the distance. Each day you’ll be reminded of the Archipelago’s colourful past as fishermen pole their beautiful dhows out to catch the trade winds – a sight unaltered in centuries. The residents of Vilanculos continue to live a laid-back Mozambican lifestyle and it is great to explore outside of the hotel with a visit to the traditional market for some shopping or indulge in a plate of freshly grilled peri-peri prawns at one of the local beach restaurants.

Bahia Mar gets our vote for some of the most stylish accommodation in Vilanculos. One of the great things about this boutique hotel is that they offer a range of rooms to suit all budgets and needs from the Sea View bedrooms, the Beach Luxury Suites which have their own pool, and the family units. 

Vilanculos and the Bazaruto Archipelago is deservedly world-famous for its wide range of beach  holiday activities. Most are centred around the Bazaruto Archipelago and by basing yourself at Bahia Mar which is considerably cheaper than the luxury island lodges in Mozambique, then you can splurge on island day trips, game fishing, scuba diving, kite-boarding and whale watching to name but a few of the activities on offer in Vilanculos.



The accommodation at Bahia Mar is varied. Two separate top floor suites make up the Sea View Bedrooms which have stunning ocean views and are great for couples. Down stairs are the more spacious suites called the Beach Luxury Suites which have their own little plunge pools and a comfy lounge area. You can also combine the entire 3 units (2 sea view rooms and one luxury suite below and you get a duplex with your own pool and lots of space, perfect for a family holiday to Vilanculos. All the accommodation is air conditioned and stylishly furnished with a contemporary meets natural beach style. 

There are also Garden Suites which as the name suggests are set in the tropical gardens with their own little veranda, offering a cheaper alternative. The Presidential Suite is perfect for romantics or those looking for some privacy and lastly the Beach Villa is a self-contained beach house set right on the beach, with its own private pool, stylish accommodation and complement of staff to look after your every need. 

One of the most popular activities is a day trip into the Bazaruto Archipelago. Join experienced skipper and crew aboard Bahai Mars luxurious speed boat ‘Mothassane’ which will whisk you across the bay to discover the huge dunes of Bazaruto, the abandoned hotel of Santa Carolina (Paradise Island) or the white sands of Benguerra.  Here you can snorkel the world-famous Two Mile Reef, try to spot the elusive dugongs, with abundant sightings of dolphins and even humpback whales and enjoy a sumptuous seafood lunch on a sand bank. A day-trip to remember forever. Back at the hotel, hit the spa for a massage or join one of the yoga classes, or work off some holiday calories in the gym!

The team at Voyage2Africa have been sending guests to Bahia Mar since it first opened, and we always get great feedback. Get hold of us to talk about combining Bahia Mar with an island if you like the idea of doing a combination of mainland and island or a South Africa safari followed by a few days at the beach.
