the best resort in Mozambique

Filed under: on the road — ilivetolearn @ 7:21 pm


After arriving and being greeted in song, Bill and I were ushered to our own private casita. It was totally charming, secluded, and luxurious. Here’s the interior:

The doors on the right led out to our own patio, plunge pool, and steps away, the beach. The second photo is Bill being served a meal by Gilario, our own private butler, at our table under a canopy. Halfway between the casita and the water, our own little beach hut with more lounge chairs (third photo):

Pretty nice view, including lovely sunsets:

And of course, picturesque fishing boats gliding back and forth all day. A cruise on one was included. We also had massages (and the masseuse mentioned several times that she had recently had the pleasure of working on Mr. Harrison Ford, a guest whose stay unfortunately did not coincide with ours), took a hike along the beach to another resort nearby, swam, did lots of birdwatching, and generally enjoyed living in the lap of luxury. This is a Mozambique that not many people get to see. I somehow doubt that anything we experience while visiting Elliot at his next post (Mexico City) will compare in terms of sheer exoticism, fantastic food, and amazing pampering. (*sigh*)
