The vibrant thrumming town of Vilanculos has long been a favourite with travellers – partly because of its superb location across from the Bazaruto Archipelago, but also because of its markets, friendly people, inviting beaches, and array of bars and restaurants, all showcasing the Arab, African and Portuguese influences prevalent throughout the town. A stay at the luxurious Casa Rex puts guests on the doorstep of this lively coastal village.
Take a dhow trip to the archipelago and dive with dugongs. Stroll around the marketplace, embark on a cultural tour, or enjoy a horse ride along the beach and kayak behind the breakers. Vilanculos is a premier kite-surfing, diving and sailing location. Visitors can also enjoy snorkelling, whale and dolphin watching, or simply relax at the myriad of beach bars and restaurants.
Casa Rex has 15 tastefully decorated bedrooms with views of the ocean and archipelago. Spend a night in the Premium, Acacia, Courtyard, or Honeymoon Suites – all with air conditioning, Wi-Fi and en-suite bathrooms. Dine on Portuguese-inspired cuisine on the outside terrace or allow Casa Rex to pack a picnic lunch for you to take to the beach.
