Facilities

Neptune Bar still boasts its original walls dating back to the early Portuguese traders and features old black-and-white photographs depicting Mozambique's past and is a great place to enjoy a drink.

With more than one swimming pool, you'll have a choice of places to cool off or simply lie in the sun. The main pool even has a wet bar, where you can enjoy your drinks without leaving the water.

The Sanctuary Spa has five treatment rooms as well as an ice pool, wet room, hydrotherapy pool, Rasul Chamber, health bar and relaxation areas - the ideal place to truly pamper yourself.

Ask the staff about their newest luxurious treatment - the Sunset Treatment. Enjoy a welcome glass of chilled champagne and a soothing foot ritual, followed by a private Rasul treatment and a delicious picnic. End off the fantastic package with an African Signature Massage that is 4 hours long, beginning at sundown.

Dining

Mozambique has gained a reputation for its incredible seafood. After dinner at the Golfinho Restaurant you will see that this reputation is well founded - with buffets piled high with huge prawns, crayfish, calamari and grilled fish.

Breakfast is also a real treat with a wide selection of delicious options ranging from tropical fruit to a full English breakfast made to order.

For lunch you can wander down to Maguluti (Tides) Snack Bar, which is situated at the activities centre next to a swimming pool and water feature. This à la carte restaurant overlooks the bay, and has an informal feel with light meals including a delicious selection of salads.

Private dining can also be arranged - there's nothing quite so romantic as dinner for two set out on a tropical beach.

Standard Beach Chalet

Anantara Bazaruto Island has a total of 30 beach chalets and 14 luxury villas, each offering an elegant, yet casual retreat. Buildings are constructed of natural materials like reed, soft-fringed thatch and wood in order to blend harmoniously with the natural surroundings.

Each beach chalet provides barefoot luxury, with a king-sized bed, outdoor shower, living area, dressing room and spacious en suite bathroom. The room also has air conditioning, mosquito netting and a mini-bar for your comfort and convenience.

Traveller Reviews

  • We also did enjoy Anatara Bazaruto. It was beautiful there and felt very private and secluded.

    Patrick Burke, April 2014
  • Mozambique was brilliant. The accommodation was of a very high standard - higher than expected. The resort was stunning and had a really paradise feel about it with deserted beach and so many miles to walk on the shore. We found the food to be very good

    Tim Medforth, April 2014
  • We had the most amazing holiday at Bazaruto! It's a long time since we've relaxed so many fun things and eaten as well! Went for a horseback rides almost every day and we snorkelled among the most colorful fish! We went dune boarding and we were on a mini-cruise to the paradisiacal island where Bob Dylan in his time wrote one of his hits - Mozambique. The flight to and from the island is an experience in itself - the green island in the blue sea! Fantastic!

    Kirsten Vium Larsen, April 2014
  • Indigo Bay Resort on Bazaruto Island was serene and beautiful. The staff was friendly. The accommodations were incredible. One simply had to open up the back door and walk a few yards to the beach. We were so amazed at just how low the low tide is. We've never seen anything quite like it. It gave us an opportunity to see the many brightly colored starfish. Most of us went scuba diving. The visibility was just fair on the first two dives. The second day, we went to the 2 mile reef and the wind was really up. The visibility was again fair to good on the first dive and the second dive was cancelled due to the wind. Plenty of sun with the temperature in the 80's. Again, the food was plentiful and delicious and the sous chef was available at each meal to describe the different dishes. The small charter flight over went very smoothly and was quite short at 15 minutes. Just FYI, we heard while there that preparations are being made to improve/renovate the property. While renovations can always be made, we didn't notice any areas that looked truly deficient except perhaps the activities center could use a refresh. Again, I would recommend without hesitation.

  • The Mozambique part was also very nice they give us a complementary : private sunset cruise, a spa treatments and private dining and also special set up in our room for our last night (flowers and bat tub filled of hot water and flowers). The food was ok and the people very nice and kind.

    Agata Meuti, August 2013
  • Indigo Bay was memorable. Moji thought the spa was first rate. Service was very good and people particularly nice. It seemed to be very nice for families. Food was very good but probably not quite at the same level of quality as the facilities. Scuba diving was very good. Overall a wonderful vacation.

    Michael Warman, April 2012
  • Our trip to Mozambique was lovely. Indigo Bay was a nice place to stay. We were pleased with the accommodations and the scenery was beautiful.

    Ashley Lacobie, April 2012
  • This stay at Indigo Bay has been enchanting! This is a perfect place for those looking for calm and serenity in between hard working weeks! The island is wonderful, accomodation conditions in the family suites are great and food is very good (believe a French tourist!) and the whole staff is perfectly skilled and warm. They also have a good diving centre, with brand new equipments and safe diving instructors, which is a very good point.

  • Indigo Bay Island Resort was also a dream - its just a shame we had to come back to work as we could so have easily have stayed!!!

    Stuart Magness, September 2011
  • Indigo is stunning, a real sanctuary and a chance to relax which was needed.
