Luxury Beach Front Property

By: Peter R Stewart

Mozambique holidays may not be the first thing you think of when you are looking for a beach front property, but you could do a whole lot worse than to check out the Mozambique channel, and Benguerra Island home to the luxury lodge called Benguerra Lodge. This is a beach front property with style, more a boutique hotel really, but in the wilderness of an offshore island on the edge of the Indian Ocean.

Benguerra Lodge is small, very intimate with four different kinds of accommodation from the Bungalows, through the Cabanas, to the Casitas to the Villa.

There are two Bungalows in the trees, less than 15 metres from the beach with a seaview. They have no windows or doors to maximise the sea breezes. They have blinds which can be drawn, overhead fans, mosquito nets, and en suite bathrooms with a shower.

The Cabanas are right on the beach, with King sized bed, bathroom with bath, and private deck with Jacuzzi/plunge pool, hammocks and sun lounger, mini bar, and tea and coffee facilities. The Cabanas are especially romantic and elegant.

The decadently private Casitas are a real home away from home with a King sized bed and mosquito net, a beautifully furnished lounge area, with a large timber deck and plunge pool, plus an outdoor dining gazebo. This is a real romantic beach hideaway.

Finally the exclusive, luxurious, and very personal Villa, which is the very top of the range accommodation. Here there are two double bedrooms with mosquito nets and fans. Ensuite bathrooms with bath and shower, and lounge and dining area. You will have your own personal chef, private wooden deck with swimming pool, private garden, and beach access.

There is a main lodge at Benguerra which consists of large reception area and gift shop, and expansive lounge, bar, and dining room, with large verandas and indoor and outdoor areas to sit around in.

Added to this is a swimming pool and a small spa, but with the stunning beach and turquoise sea, who needs a swimming pool!!

Meals in the main consist not unnaturally of fresh seafood, so prawns, crab, and crayfish will be enjoyed regularly. Breakfast and lunch are buffet style, with dinner being a set menu. There will because of Mozambique's colonial history be more than a little Portugese influence in the flavours, which are also a cross between African and Arabic.
Lunch and dinner are moveable feasts with new spots to eat every day.

There are a number of very good and obvious reasons for choosing Benguerra Lodge for your Mozambique holidays.

The first of these would be the situation, being on a large long sheltered beach, and even at low tide access to deep water is possible, and this isn't the case in East Africa.

Beguerra is a real lodge, intimate, and ideal for a romantic beach getaway, with a very good staff to guest ratio. Benguerra Lodge is also all inclusive which includes all drinks as well as food, and you won't find a beach front property in a more unspoilt place than Benguerra Island.
