I would recommend this place to anyone!

We spent 3 nights here in October and had a great time. There would be very few better beaches in the world, the rooms are great and the staff are brilliant. Our butler, Paulo, was great fun and was very attentive. The activities staff, including Renior, Zach, Julio, Jaime and Fernando were all great too. As with all AndBeyond lodges, the food was fantastic. The Dhow Bar is my favourite bar in the world, so I'd recommend a few R&R's to anyone. Thanks Johan and the team for a great few days and we will be back soon!

Staffordshire, United Kingdom

Arriving at andBeyond by Helicopter is just the most fantastic way to start what proved to be a magical stay. Andi was a super host making sure everything was good without being in your face. All the staff were faultless,nothing was ever too much trouble & it was a great end to an epic holiday. The settings for mealtimes on the beach were spectacular, the boat bar a welcome venue & the little treats for our 25th Wedding Anniversary very considerate. Despite a couple of poor day's weather wise we still indulged in A Sunset Cruise / Island Tour & Snorkeling Trip - great fun. AndBeyond certainly know how to look after its guests and as other reviewers have indicated their commitment to the local community & various conservation projects is admirable. Thanks not only for Benguerra but also a magnificent Botswana Safari - Memorable all for the right reasons. Keep up the good work & Thanks again.
