Located on one of the most beautiful beaches in Vilanculos, overlooking the bay of Bazaruto - Mozambique, Casa Babi is the latest addition to accommodation in Vilanculos. Designed by Odyssea Dive as a boutique hotel, our aim is to meet the needs of travelers, divers and non-divers, who wish to spend some time enjoying our unique decor in a cosy and familiar atmosphere, where details are important. A real home away from home. As part of the team, our 4 dogs might contribute to this feeling!
Casa Babi offers a proper taste of Africa with all the European comfort, including a swimming pool that you will give you a welcome respite from the warmth of the midday sun.
Our private restaurant, open to our guests only, prepares different meals every day, based on a fusion of local fresh products and recipes with an international touch. Do not expect a long menu. We cook based on what we have found in the market that day! An example - Crab quiche and salad as a starter, fish stir-fried with vegetables and coconut rice and mango mousse for dessert. Or, prawns in coconut milk soup, roast chicken with spices and manioc followed by banana flambe. We think there`s nothing better than recounting the days adventures at sea while enjoying a pleasant dinner.
Accommodation at Casa Babi:
Each of our 4 luxury rooms with en-suite bathroom benefits from a private veranda, from which you will be able to enjoy the most stunning views of the islands and of the animated life on the beach: fishermen coming back with their daily catch, women carrying baskets of crabs on their heads as they walk along the shore, children playing on the sands. On Sundays, you will also be lulled by the beautiful sound of the all-female choir singing in the church next door.
Keeping in mind that summers can be hot, we have designed our rooms to keep them cool with natural ventilation. The ocean`s breeze which will flow into your rooms can be boosted with the very silent fans placed above your beds.
Odyssea Dive will take you diving on the amazing reefs of the Bazaruto Archipelago. Non-divers are welcome on board for a snorkeling trip or, alternatively, can opt for trekking (on foot or on horseback) around the pearl of the Archipelago.
We can also organize Dhow trips to the closest islands or horse riding across one of the most awe-inspiring landscapes on earth.
Vilanculos is now developing the kite surf activity, ideal from beginners to advanced kiters.
