Anantara Beach Holiday

Enjoy a range of land and water-based activities from Anantara Bazaruto Beach Resort and Spa. A great destination for families, it offers something to keep all ages entertained as well as ample opportunity for utter relaxation.

Anantara Beach Holiday: Summary

Anantara Beach Holiday in a nutshell

This week-long trip focuses on Anantara Bazaruto: a large, relaxed and comfortable resort on the stunning coastline of the Bazaruto Archipelago, with its picturesque white sands and azure waters.

Featuring a wide range of facilities and varied activities, both on land and water-based, Anantara is well suited to both families with children and larger groups. The resort’s two swimming pools, one for families and the other for adults only, allows further distinction between peaceful relaxation and high-energy family fun.

Those who want to complement beach-side relaxation with more active pursuits may enjoy the extensive watersports centre, where snorkelling, diving, waterskiing, wake-boarding, kayaking, fishing and paddleboarding are all available.

On land, island drives, tennis and qolf (a mixture between croquet and golf), give plenty of scope for activity as an antidote to all that relaxation, while Anantara’s well-equipped kids' club offers entertainment for younger children, allowing parents the opportunity for peace and quiet while their children play.

To unwind still further, the resort has a hilltop spa, whose combination of treatment rooms, hot tubs and steam rooms allows for quiet pampering in privacy. Or simply sit and take in the view with a drink or a bite to eat.

This exceptional diversity, coupled with the resort’s size and friendly ambience, make for an excellent destination that is great value for a week’s stay.

Days 1-7

Anantara Bazaruto Island Resort and Spa, was previously known as Indigo Bay Island Resort and part of the Rani chain of resorts and hotels. (Prior to that it was simply called Indigo Bay, and before that Sabal Lodge stood here!) It re-opened on this idyllic beach in 2011, having been taken over by the Anantara chain. It's a substantial place – indicated by the fact that golf carts are used to move guests and luggage between the rooms, and it has plenty of facilities for the more active of sun-worshippers, and is also a good choice for families.
