Located on Mozambique's Vilanculos island and overlooking the Bazaruto Archipelago, Villa Santorini is a stunning seaside escape for large families and groups of friends.

Echoing the blue-domed design of a typical Greek villa, the luxurious 5-bedroomed hideaway promises barefoot luxury with breathtaking views across the deep turquoise Indian Ocean.

Five double bedrooms with en suite bathrooms and private ocean-facing terraces will make up to eight adults and four children feel immediately at home. Whether you are splashing in the private pool, chilling out in the shady loggia or snacking on treats prepared by your personal chef, Villa Santorini lets you ‘exhale’...

Stroll along miles of untouched ivory sands or spend the day snorkelling in the azure waters just off the shore. Whatever you choose to do, the warm Indian Ocean breezes will gently wash over you.

Style & Décor

Designed to echo the curved white-washed walls and blue-domed roofs typical of the Greek Isles, Villa Santorini also injects a shot of East Africa via unique sculptures and artworks. The classical white-on-white palette is restful and plays up the intense blues of the ocean and orangey-pinks of the rising and setting sun. The iconic dome was hand-packed over 10 weeks by 150 workers in the traditional way, making it one of a kind in the area. Split levels allow for large groups to enjoy each other’s company but tucked away terraces and secret decks are perfect for romantic dinners à deux or outdoor massages.


Vilanculos Island is the gateway to Mozambique’s famed Bazaruto Archipelago. A protected marine reserve since 1971, the island enjoys miles of untouched white sands, rich tropical reefs and warm, crystal clear waters teeming with sea life which make it exemplary for top-notch snorkelling, diving and fishing.


This idyllic, rambling beach villa is perfect for groups of friends or families with children who want an exclusive-use island escape with plenty of breathing space.

Best time to visit

Mozambique is an ideal beach holiday destination with sunny skies and temperate climes all year round. While the summer months (October to March) can be hot and humid, with heavy rainfalls in January and February, head to the islands in the cooler winter months (between May and September) to experience beautiful clear skies, warm temperatures and crystal-clear seas.

Special Notes

Adventures such as horse riding, kite boarding, sand boarding and camel rides can be arranged.


A modern, fully-equipped kitchen comes complete with state-of-the-art appliances including a double fridge/freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer and a separate scullery. Your personal villa chef will take up residence in the kitchen to produce delicious meals from the freshest local ingredients. Special meals and dietary requirements can be arranged on request.
