Santorini Mozambique
Vilanculos

At first glance you will think you have landed on the chic white-washed island of Santorini in the Greek Islands, but look closer and the Santorini Mozambique has so much more to offer: the tropical white beaches of the Bazaruto Archipelago, virgin coral reefs offering some of the best scuba diving in the world, and a wonderfully warm and relaxed African welcome. Go whale watching one day and sandboard down the red cliffs of Vilanculos or the sand dunes of Bazaruto another. Enjoy stand up paddling right in front of the villa or go kayaking, snorkelling and fishing – or push the boat out by chartering Santorini’s own 38ft Supercat Catamaran to explore these pearly isles. Other activities include horse-riding, kite surfing, cycling, dhow safaris and helicopter rides. There is a spa at the resort to unwind after: Spa Na Colina is tucked away on the hill amongst palm trees and lush vegetation.

Originally a sprawling villa, Santorini is now a boutique resort offering a villa experience with stylish décor, immaculate polish and panoramic views over Vilanculos Bay. It adopts the simple lines and white washed interiors inspired by the Greek Isles, but it also has original pieces of décor from Mozambique, hard-carved doors from Bali and antiques from Indonesia and India. Guests can either stay in the main villa which has 5 gorgeous sea-view bedrooms with their own patio, or in one of two separate villas which have their own private butler. The Chapel is a 1-bedroom villa ideal for honeymooners with a lounge, kitchen, dining room and a private swimming pool and patio; and Villa da Praia is a new 3-bedroom villa with its own lounge, kitchen and dining room. The Main Villa facilities are available to all guests and comprise a lounge, TV room, ocean facing deck with martini pool, secluded patios, wind-protected courtyard pool and dining spaces.

Enjoy the freshest seafood from their daily catch, vegetables picked from their gardens, and pizzas from their special pizza oven. Guests can dine in the courtyard, by the martini pool or at the open-air beach boma while being entertained with a local song and dance from the Santorini Family and tucking into a BBQ of peri-peri chicken, fresh prawns and tender calamari. Alternatively, private dining or a romantic beach picnic can be arranged at any time.

Vilanculos International Airport is serviced by daily flights, and the Villa is a 20-minute drive from the airport.

I travel a lot; I hate having my life disrupted by routine.

Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
