Days in this paradise can be spent lounging on the unspoilt beaches or cooling off in the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean. There are many water-based activities to enjoy at Anantara, including snorkelling, fishing, water skiing, and diving. After an exciting day in the sea and sun, relax with a massage or beauty treatment.


  • Remote location in a beach wilderness
  • Bustling & vibrant resort

A very popular choice for families, this resort with its safe swimming waters and endless activities will keep even the busiest child happy. Our tip would be to head up to the spa at sunset for icy cold bubbles and the most magnificent sunsets. Diving and snorkelling here is fantastic and if you are lucky you may even encounter the rare dugong on one of your marine excursions!

Beach Villa

Anantara Bazaruto Island has a total of 29 beach 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 villa 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.

Other Room Types:

The Sea View Pool Villa is ideal for romantics, with a queen-sized bed, en suite bathroom, lounge area, and private veranda from which to enjoy the views. A private plunge pool is the ideal place where couples can cool off.

The Anantara Pool Villa offers the ultimate in luxurious seaside accommodation, with its own spa bath and swimming pool, one king room and one twin room, each with its own bathroom. You will also find a lounge area and bar in which to relax with a drink.

In addition, there is one Beach Pool Villa that is ideal for honeymooners and 12 Deluxe Sea View Villas, with vistas of the bay.


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

With more than one swimming pool, you 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 four hours long, beginning at sundown.


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 Club Naval, 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 as romantic as dinner for two set out on a tropical beach.

Anantara Bazaruto Island Resort & Spa

Rebecca Gindele

Anantara was gorgeous. It's hard to give it 5 out of 5 stars but it's a solid 4.5. They are lovely, and so accommodating! Tiny details are what keep it from a perfect 5 stars. The spa was incredible. We went a few times during our visit and it did no t disappoint. The excursion to Paradise Island was a great recommendation. We LOVED it. Awesome snorkeling. They put flowers in our room and spelled out a birthday message to Josh with flora. Again, they are lovely and warm and we had a great time.

We did get the horseback riding in on Bazaruto and had a great time - thank you! We also went to Pansy Island and never wanted to leave. It was definitely one of the highlights.The order of how you arranged things was perfect. Anantara was absolutely perfect. We loved everything and were so happy to have the upgraded villa and pool.

"We had the most amazing time at Anantara in Bazaruto. There were special surprises everywhere for us and we were spoilt to the point where we were almost considering not going home!"

Patrick Burke

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

Tim Medforth

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 g ood

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!

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.

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.

"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."

Emmanuelle Poli

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!!!"

Gareth Davies

"Indigo is stunning, a real sanctuary and a chance to relax which was needed."

Chris Winter

"In short the whole trip to Indigo Bay was fabulous and surpassed our expectations. I don't know where to start ! Overall we can't recommend Indigo Bay highly enough, we will go back, (again)."

Limor Robinson

"Beautiful place, gorgeous spa."

James Tallarico

Indigo Bay was everything we wanted. Our Room was beautiful and the Resort on the whole was perfect. Every worker there was as friendly as you could possibly be. Nothing bad to say about the place. Would definitely recommend it, but getting there was a bit tricky, but well worth it.

Samantha Denham

WOW!! When Sam and I first arrived, we had some trouble relaxing because we were still so stimulated by the safari. Next time I think we'll do the beach first so that we actually relax! But really, this resort was beautiful and it felt very luxuriou s! The rooms were gorgeous, spacious and very clean. The maids would change the sheets and pillow cases daily which was nice. They also left us little treats every night like foot cream, foot scrub, lip balm etc. That was fun coming back to the room after dinner to our little presents. The food there was OUT OF THIS WORLD!!!! Sam and I complimented the chef many times.

Indeed we had an excellent vacation with nothing to complain about. The resort is absolutely nice. The beach chalet was perfectly equipped and located. Beach and water was as good as wished. The activities we made use of were nice to impressive. Food and service were excellent. So, all in all it was a relaxing vacation I could recommend to others.
