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 en suite bathrooms, private patio areas and large, very comfortable beds. The luxury courtyard rooms are especially romantic and have a mesmerizing sea view.

The restaurant at Casa Rex is a favorite 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 off the white sandy beach below whilst sipping a sundowner.
