Vila do Paraiso

Laid back social beach vibes on mainland Mozambique
VilanculosMozambique· 6 Rooms · ££

Unpretentious, fun and casual accommodation just north of Vilanculos

A tropical beach haven perfect for groups and families who enjoy adventure, socialising and seafood

Vilanculos is an idyllic location for tropical adventures on the Mozambique mainland, and Vila do Paraiso is a great place to base yourselves for a few days. The resort is made up of 6 luxury villas, each sleeping up to 8, right on the Mahaque Beach just north of Vilanculos. They are perfect for groups and families looking for a seaside getaway who enjoy personal service and a lively social atmosphere.

Vila do Paraiso offers numerous land and ocean-based activities, from diving and snorkelling over the colourful reefs (suitable for both beginners and experts), to horse riding, cultural tours and deep sea fishing. You definitely shouldn't miss a day of island hopping in the beautiful Bazaruto Archipelago on a ski-boat, catamaran or dhow, with a picnic or braai (bbq) set up on an island or deserted sandbar of your choice. You could easily spend a week here and still not have tried everything.

The restaurant at Vila do Paraiso is renowned for its freshly prepared seafood, including a dazzling seafood barbeque with Mozambican flavours on selected nights. Bus it's not all about fish. The chefs will happily rustle up everything from pregos (the famous Portugese steak sandwich) to pizza. Dinner is all about romance with flickering candles next to the infinity pool, and superb views of the Indian Ocean with its waves lapping gently on the shore. Oh and the sunsets are pretty magical too. They go extremely well with a poolside cocktail from the quirky bar that has been cleverly shaped like the bow of a dhow, with several fun nautical features.

*The price per person is based on a group of 4 sharing a villa on a self catering basis

Our Difference

The Far & Wild Community...

We think that the best people to talk about an experience are those directly linked to it. Our website and brochures let the ‘real experts’ show their stuff… local experts, travellers & industry insiders. Look out for the coloured markers all around the site... they mean that you are reading something contributed directly by a person from one of these different parts of the community we are part of.

The best memories aren’t simply places and hotels, they are made up of experiences and people… so we connect with local communities, and strive for sustainable travel to make your holiday special
