Where to even begin? What a glorious, exceptional place this was. I initially booked my stay at Bahia Mar for just a week but a month later I was still there, soaking up the beautiful sunrises, watching the tides come in and out and sipping on the occasional coconut by the magnificent views offered right next to the pool. It so effortlessly became home. "Home" was an exquisite beach suite which was approximately 5 metres from the beach. It was large enough and spacious enough to never feel claustrophobic (given how long I stayed), with its separate lounge and kitchen area and wrap around porch, while never once losing that touch of luxury. It offered complete privacy and private access to the beach. The suite even has its own plunge pool for you to cool off at the end of yet another hot day, or sipping on a cocktail that the bar will happily send down to your suite while you relax and take in the ocean views. There is also a gym to keep you busy, which comes with a trainer and a full set of classes you can pick and choose from. Right behind it is the heavenly spa, where the ladies work their magic on you when your body also craves the revival your spirit and mind will no doubt already be feeling after a few days in this beautiful place. I tried food from all over Vilanculos, but I kept coming back to the Bahia Mar restaurant because the (sea)food is just amazing. Some days I'd show up and just ask the chef to "surprise me", and it was always an orgasmic trip for my tastebuds. More than anything, it is the people I met there that made it a truly memorable experience. All of the staff at Bahia Mar are incredibly friendly, warm and welcoming, and it truly felt like I was embedded in a small community of wonderful people while I was there. Not only the staff, but even the locals, who would frequent the restaurant for a coffee or lunch, or come in for a yoga class and share a laugh and some stories before heading off to their homes. I would (and very likely will) come back to this place time and time again.

Bahia Mar was an incredible place for us to stay. The rooms were large, spacious, and super clean with great working AC. The hotel beach is divine with beautiful blue water. The best part was the super friendly staff who were accommodating in every imaginable way. We enjoyed our stay so much. The location is great as well and really convenient. It is a luxurious place with lots of space to relax, work, or do sports. It really provides everything one needs. Highly recommend this place to anyone considering coming to Vilankulos!!!

Had the pleasure of spending a week at Bahia Mar. The staff were warm, friendly & attentive. Service was impeccable, from the grounds-staff, managers, waitrons and others. The property is well equipped with restaurant, laundry, air conditioning gymnasium and yoga studio as well as a spa. The rooms are modern and comfortable. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting Vilanculos and will certainly be back myself. Thank you Bahia Mar.

I stopped off at Bahia Mar in transit to Maputo, as a change to other places I have stayed at in Vilanculos. Bahia Mar was easily the best expereince I have had on the mainland. Highlights were the covid readiness, the proximity and easy access to the beach, the infinity pool, the rooms, and the menu was really good. I had a lobster pasta that just blew my taste buds apart. I also met Jayne who manages the housekeeping for the whole resort- if you don't fall for Jayne you have ice in your veins. I look forward to a couple of days stop-over again when I return to Beira.
