About Benguerra Island Lodge

Benguerra Island has recently undergone an extensive refurbishment to become the quintessential luxury island retreat. Boasting a fresh island feel, the lodges welcoming guest areas offer views of the lush tropical garden and the ocean beyond. Set deep in cleverly created patches of shade, comfortable loungers beckon guests to relax around the rim flow swimming pool while drinking in the ocean views. Closer to the waters edge, the lodges colourful beach bar is the perfect setting to relax or enjoy open air meals right on the sand.
Set among a lush island forest, ten casinhas and two cabanas are being extensively revamped in a light and airy colour scheme that combines tropical chic with a distinct African feel and reminders of the areas Portuguese heritage. Set under local thatch, both casinhas and cabanas boast elegant four-poster beds with white linen canopies and comfortable day beds. Large windows with dark wooden shutters gaze out towards the Indian Ocean, while private timber decks and cool rim flow pools offer a secluded alternative to beach sands and ocean waters. Bathrooms feature generous tubs big enough for two, while outdoor showers are decorated with hand-painted tiles. A shaded gazebo provides the ideal venue for starlit dinners, while the stylish dining room and open lounge, both of which boast wide, sunny decks, are the setting. Ideal for families or groups, the Casa Familia boasts three bedrooms, each with its own en-suite bathroom, as well as private swimming pool set on the sheltered wooden veranda.
