Castaway days

Palo Alto, California

Beautiful location and sea; fabulous staff; gorgeous villas (no key!), fun activities - castaway and enjoy this part of Mozambique -- also wonderful massage and gift shop! Dining out of doors under the stars is a must! The bar was our favorite hangout.

Paradise in Mozambique

Mountain View, California, USA

My wife and I and another couple spent four nights at the resort and it was nothing short of spectacular. You can do as little or as much as you wanted and the staff was more than happy to obliged. We were ferried to the island via a 10 minute helicopter ride with insane views of the water. Smiling faces and welcoming waves greeted us as we touched down. Our room had it's own private plunge pool, multiple seating areas and direct access to the beach right from our deck. Every morning the gravitational pull of the views brought we out to read a chapter or two. Every meal was excellent and I would definitely suggest ordering the calamari whenever it is offered. Any meal can be taken from the privacy of your own deck or at a table on the beach. Either way the service and views are perfect. Activities abound and we partook in an island drive (thanks Issac!), massages, a sunset show cruise, snorkeling, and my favorite the castaway picnic. You are whisked away to a secluded beach with nobody in sight. You truly feel you are all alone. Aside from the stunning beauty and numerous options for fun, what truly sets andBeyond apart are two areas. 1. Their commitment to the communities they operate in and the surrounding environment. Through its Africa Foundation, the company works with and invests in the local community. On the island drive we saw a newly constructed medical clinic, solar water pumps and community center. These were all built based on the local population wants/needs. It is great to stay with a company so committed to social action and positive influence. 2. The staff was outstanding and truly sets this property apart. Thank you Meagan for lending my wife your personal sunglasses because she had lost her own earlier in the trip. Truly a taking that extra step! Our main butler Enia was an absolute superstar. From handling special food requests to taking care of my wife when she briefly fell I'll, Enia was there to make sure all was taken care of. We already miss her. Lastly, we had the joy of being assisted by Alberto who was a trainee in his first 1-2 weeks on the job. I don't think I'll ever forget his warm smile and genuine positive spirit. andBeyond, you have a great one in the makings on your hands. I unequivocally give this resort the full 5 stars. It was simply magical.
