Benguerra Lodge exudes an East-African-cum- Arabic decor in line with the ancient tradition of the Archipelago, once the playground of the Queen of Sheba and the trading route of old Arabia.

and of course… YOUR OWN PRIVATE BUTLER:
At Benguerra Lodge we constantly strive to improve our guests’ overall experience. With this in mind we have, since the end of January, slowly introduced an informal Moçambique style butler service. The butlers were sourced from existing staff who volunteered for the intensive Butler training program. The butlers have really embraced the program with great enthusiasm and take pride in caring for their assigned guests.
Guests staying in the Casitas are assigned a personal butler on check-in to look after them for the duration of their stay. In keeping with our style of “bare foot luxury” our butlers are informal and friendly, adding a very special, personal touch to every guest’s visit.
Each Cabana has it’s own private deck with jacuzzi/plunge pool, hammocks and sun loungers; a mini-bar; tea & coffee making facilities; a large bathroom with bath and shower and a gorgeous outdoor shower.
