Benguera Facilities

Our public areas are open to the beach and sea with amazing vistas across calm blue waters to the Indian Ocean beyond. Furnished with cool contemporary cottons and the textures of Africa, they are open to the breezes, in harmony with nature. Comfortable, simple, spacious and chic.

Wander in and out as you please. Find a quiet corner to read a book, or a place to share the stories of your day with others. Sip the cocktail of the day on the beach with your feet in the sand, or relax in the Star Bar over a game of Bau.
Browse our collection of handcrafted artefacts, designer clothing and jewellery at the Trading Store, including a selection of beachwear by Heidi Klein. The mod cons are there too if you need them, with TV and internet discreetly tucked away in our library.
Our staff are always on hand to look after your every need. Or simply wander off and discover more of what this beautiful island has to offer. It all right there, waiting for you.
