Set on Mozambique's coast near the town of Vilanculos, Casa Rex is an intimate and charming boutique hotel offering sweeping views of the sparkling Indian Ocean and the islands of the Bazaruto Archipelago in the distance. Winding footpaths lead through the hotel's tropical gardens to the beach and the swimming pool which overlooks glittering Vilanculos Bay. A lovely verandah and large indigenous trees add to the tranquil feel of the property and offer perfectly shaded corners to spend a relaxing afternoon.
But there's plenty to do as well: browse the local market, stroll down to the beach or let the friendly staff help you organise one of the many activities on offer including scuba diving, dhow and catamaran sailing trips, snorkelling expeditions, deep-sea fishing, sunset cruises and full-day trips to the Bazaruto Islands with a barbecue lunch on the beach.
The Casa Rex has two swimming pools, one near the hotel's dining area and the other by the Acacia block.
Diving expeditions and other water sports are available from a variety of dive and activity centres located nearby - Casa Rex staff will be happy to help you to find the best option.
Relax with a spa treatment from one of the visiting therapists before enjoying a sundowner drink on the terrace.
