Casa Rex, Vilanculos Coastal Wildlife Sanctuary, Mozambique
This is a friendly and personal lodge located in the small town of Vilanculos (also spelt Vilankulo) with stunning views across the broad white sands of Vilanculos Bay.
The beach is accessible via a short footpath leading down the hillside. The rooms are housed in three colonial Portuguese villas set in lush tropical gardens; all rooms are elegantly and simply furnished and have separate ensuite bathrooms, private patio areas and large, very comfortable beds. The luxury courtyard rooms are especially romantic and have a mesmerizing seaview.
The restaurant at Casa Rex is a favourite place for dining in Vilanculos and offers an extensive menu with many local specialties, often with a distinct Portuguese flare. Dining areas include a large terrace in the gardens where you can watch local fishermen hauling in the nets of the white sandy beach below whilst sipping a sundowner.
