Arriving at Azulik Lodge in Vilanculos, Mozambique

My journey began with a boat ride from the main town of Vilanculos. We passed endless sand banks and turquoise blue water.  From the moment I arrived at Azulik Lodge, I was greeted with warm smiles from the friendly staff and a refreshing drink. The lodge's boho, modern breathtaking architecture was the best I have ever seen. Rob and his wife Adri-Ann, built the property in 2015. They have done an incredible job perfecting the “Azulik brand” with the interior design of the entire property, from rooms, to the kitchen; it’s a branded aesthetic wherever you go.

The Accommodation at Azulik Lodge in Vilanculos, Mozambique

My first glimpse of the accommodation left me in awe. The lodge offered a variety of private bungalows, each uniquely designed with sustainability in mind. My bungalow overlooked the Indian Ocean, providing an uninterrupted view of the horizon. The rustic yet luxurious interior featured locally sourced materials, creating a cozy and eco-friendly ambiance. Being able to walk right off the porch and have views of the sea in the morning while I sip a cup of coffee was a great way to start the day. Azulik Lodge is an all-inclusive lodge, so when choosing your accommodation option, food and drink are included. You can check out their accommodation options and rates by heading to this page.  

Throughout my stay, I found myself surrendering to the tranquility of Azulik Lodge. Azulik is a private lodge, meaning there are only a few travelers staying here at a time. It’s extremely relaxing and a great way to escape the hustle and bustle of traveling.  Whether it was lounging in a hammock, swimming in the infinity pool, or reading a book on the deck, each second felt like a luxury. I  have never felt more at home at a hotel before. It’s a great feeling to have, and I suggest you consider booking a trip to Mozambique just to experience this too.
