Pestana Bazaruto Lodge is an
Eco Resort with a typical environment and is located in the paradisiacal island of
Bazaruto. A true dream destination, this place of rare beauty is characterised by its
fauna, marine life, white-sand beaches and turquoise blue waters right outside your bedroom door. With plenty to explore, it has an
outdoor pool, restaurant and bar, and for the more adventurous guests, it also offers diving and snorkelling at one of the largest
coral reef sites in the world. Discover all facets of fishing here, including fly-fishing, big game and marlin fishing, and shore fishing, as well as water-skiing and wakeboarding, island excursions, bird-watching and more.
At Pestana Bazaruto Lodge, you’ll find one- or two-bedroom
bungalows with thatched roofs and two- or three-bedroom
villas with or without a pool and with the option of your own
private chef. All accommodation is on the beach, facing the sea and set among tropical gardens to provide fantastic views of both.
The lodge’s restaurant and bar are also right on the beach, allowing guests to enjoy their meal or drink in a heavenly setting with a breathtaking view of the Indian Ocean.
And after a fantastic day enjoying the many experiences this world-renowned fishing location offers, it’s time to sit back in your own beachfront bungalow or on your balcony with only the ocean in front of you. Let yourself be lulled by the slow, steady, soothing sound of the waves, and, as the last rays of sun touch your face, admire the sunset in a rainbow-coloured sky. Twilight then turns into night, and the beautiful starry skies of the southern hemisphere are yet another visual wonder.
