For most people, the closest they get to enjoying four-star accommodation is to read about it, and how famous people frolic on tropical beaches, are waited on hand and foot while lying next to a beautiful pool, treated to indulgent spa treatments and private dinners on the beach. The list of decadence goes on and makes unfamous people very sad as they wear swimming rings around their waists to the office. Now you can experience the life of the famously spoiled for 3-nights at Pestana Bazaruto Lodge in Mozambique for only R6 852.60.
The Bazaruto archipelago is home to a large range of fauna, flora, forest, savannah and wetland ecosystems. Known as the ‘Pearl of the Indian Ocean’ the islands of Bazaruto, Benguerra, Magaruque, and Santa Carolina, were declared a National Park in 2000. Out of all these islands, Bazaruto is the perfect holiday destination, especially if you want to escape the digital age.
With the fast-paced lifestyle of today, taking time out for yourself is mandatory. Switch off and return to a natural pace of living for three days and two nights. Pestana Bazaruto Lodge, situated on the north side of Bazaruto Island, is newly renovated and nestled amongst luxurious tropical gardens, which are located along a stretch of beautiful beach. Relish the view from your superior sea-facing bungalow and have a ball rolling straight out of your high-thread count linen covered bed right onto the beach, right on your doorstep. In fact you may find a crab making its way into your room, they’re not known for their sense of direction.
Explore the beautiful island of Bazaruto with its turquoise waters, idyllic beaches and beautiful wildlife. The opportunities for discovery are vast, and there’s loads of fun to be had. You can play hide and seek amongst the tropical trees while darting around and humming the ‘Mission Impossible’ theme. Wake the kiddie in you and canoe or paddle out to a remote spot, swim, and play ‘Marco Polo’ – it’s not necessary but its loads of fun. Snorkel along the beautiful Coral Gardens, pretend you’re Nemo and get lost in the amazing colour of the reef and beautiful tropical fish. Build sandcastles on the captivating beach, or sleeeeeeeeeep. Don’t forget your sun cream, the weather may be beautiful, but skin is still sensitive.
If you’re in the mood to simply relax and reconnect then take your ‘I heart you’ person and enjoy a private dinner on the beach, a toe wiggle in the sand and savour the sound of the breaking waves . After dinner you can take a sunset cruise for two, and pretend you’re on a stake-out. Why not enjoy a free fishing trip to Dolphin Bay, which is teaming with Tuna and King Mackarel in the calm shallow waters? The water is warm and the fish are fun to fight with. To wind down from living it up, get your Zen back on track with a back, neck and shoulder massage, it’s the perfect cherry on top of an amazing holiday cake.
Now that you know what it’s like to live like the famous and spoiled, go forth and become rich and famous.
