Varanda
Ranked #7 of 10 Vilanculos B&B and Inns
Reviewed 5 November 2013

We stayed 6 nights at Varanda. From our bed, room and varanda, we had amazing views of the beach, sea, fisherman and their boats. The place was quiet (probably because there were not many guests at the time we were there) which was perfect for us because it was very relaxing and peaceful. There are only 4 big rooms on site which makes it a nice little quaint place that is not too touristy. The food was good, though I can recommend them to diversify and elaborate more on their drinks and desert offerings.
Being a dog lover, one of the best parts for me is their onsite mascot, Bagui (a belgian shepard mix puppy). He made our stay even more amusing! :-)

We travelled through many countries in southern africa and we must say that our stay at varanda in vilanculos we loved the most. we came for dinner but varanda is more than just a restaurant! It offers only a few, but very beautiful and individual double rooms, each was designed differently and has its own personality. You can tell that someone must have put a lot of love into creating this place! Varanda is located directly at the beach, so you got a stunning view, every morning you can watch the scenario of the fishmarket right from your rooms sandy private varanda. All the meals were delicious especially the Calamari meals and the included breakfast is propably the best you can get in vilanculos! Varanda is just a lovely place to stay, you can feel the heart and the soul of this place! We highly recommend everyone who is around to pass by and let the african vibe get you:)

Room Tip: All of them are lovely, we decided for the red room though.
