Mozambican resort elected Africa’s best new hotel by Condé Nast Traveller

The travel magazine Condé Nast Traveller has chosen the “andBeyond” Benguerra Island resort in the Bazaruto Archipelago in southern Mozambique as Africa’s best new hotel.

The high end global tourism publication picked the luxury resort which is located on the Archipelago’s second largest island.

The Chief Executive of &Beyond, Joss Kent explained to AIM that “we reopened andBeyond Benguerra Island in June 2015 following an extensive refurbishment. It is all about simple, barefoot luxury and inspiration, for its new look stems from Mozambique’s Portuguese heritage”.

Kent said that most visitors fly to Vilanculos airport on the mainland where they can take a helicopter to the island.

He welcomed the award, stating that this “helps to put Mozambique back on the map as the hottest beach destination for this year”.

The Bazaruto Archipelago is a protected marine conservation area offering sandy beaches and unspoiled coral reefs. It is one of the few places where there is a population of the rare marine mammal, the dugong.
