Pestana Bazaruto Lodge



The location of our beach hut was fantastic. The staff made such an effort and we were treated to a private dinner on the beach on our last night. The chef made me a birthday cake and played happy birthday on his xylophone! The only slight disappointments were the fact that the water went out for miles at low tide and there were lots of mosquitos.
