The attention to detail and personal service is of the highest quality. The rooms decor is stunning. The gardens and all the swimming pools are beautifully kept. The cloths you get when you come off the beach as well as the mojitos are such a special touch. A huge thank you to Sonette, Pedro, Alberto, Akasia, Paulino, Thomas, Abel, Ignacio, and all the friendly staff. This is a boutique hotel with fantastic food and rooms. We stayed in Santa Carolina and it was massive. The beds and linen so comfortable. The wifi is good. The cute pictures on the butter always entertaining! Diving at the reef at Bazaruto was another hilight. The visit to Magarouke Island was so special as well. And to top it off we saw a DUGONG! And of course the sightings of dolphins are always magical. The free slipslops and cute bottle of beach sand such special touches! Oh and the spa was fabulous too! The laundry is complimentary! All rooms have sea views! In your room is a beach bag, sarongs and gowns for use whilst at the lodge. I cannot rave about Santorini enough!

Stayed at Santorini after 10 days in the bush and what an absolutely perfect way to end a great African adventure. The service was OUT OF THIS WORLD, the food was absolutely amazing, the views were breathtaking, and the stay was perfect. We could not have asked for a better experience - they spoiled us terribly with their kindness and service! Would definitely recommend to any couple or group of couples that want to enjoy a relaxing time at an incredible beach (with incredible amenities!!). Thank you for a wonderful visit!

Such a magical place! We spent a week there during christmas and it was definitely one of our best holidays. The hotel has a beautiful architecture and decorated with incredible taste. Some of us stayed at the Chapel Villa and some stayed in rooms at the main building (we were a group of 3 adults and 4 teenagers). The service was outstanding with our own Buttler (Sergio) who took care of all our needs. He made us feel as the only guests in the hotel. Everyone at the hotel was so kind and attentive. The food was delicious and they were ready to accommodate to any request. The beach is truly private and absolutely stunning. Pristine and untouched. The hotel organised an island trip for us and we enjoyed a little picnic on a secluded beach under a gazebo that was set up just for us, it was incredible. I have no words to express our gratitude to the team. We will definitely be returning!

My husband and I stayed at Santorini for 4 nights for the end of our honeymoon in Africa. We travel often ... and this was the most amazing place we've ever stayed - absolutely perfect for a honeymoon! We loved the unique set up. Rather than being in a hotel, you are literally staying in a luxury home. The main building was originally built to be a private home -- between this set up of the space and the way the staff is organized, you honestly feel like you are home from the moment you step food inside. The five rooms of the main building are well spread out from each other so they offer absolute privacy (each is quite large, offers a large bathroom as well as a private balcony). But you also have use of the rest of the house if you'd like, which includes several different patios and balconies, two pools and a well-stocked kitchen. Upon arrival you can decide how you prefer to spend your time -- private and away from others, or mingle with other guests. We enjoy meeting new people, so we joined the daily happy hour on the roof and really enjoyed meeting others from around the world. The small staff is incredibly kind, welcoming and friendly. Jose and Sonette, the managers, felt like old friends from the moment we met. From spa appointments to the boat trip to the islands to local activities, they helped make sure each day was just perfect. Finally -- we have to comment on the FOOD. Honestly, some of the most amazing food we've ever had. These chefs could easily be operating Michelin star restaurants in the USA. Each dish was creative, fresh and absolutely delicious. Santorini spoiled us in every way and we can't recommend it highly enough to others! By the second day we were already plotting our next return!

Wow! This was our last stop on our honeymoon and it was just the perfect ending for us. We stayed for 3 nights in the Santa Carolina room. This suite was so spacious, beautifully decorated, but the real winner was the absolutely incredible view! Santorini has only a few rooms so it feels very intimate. Our server/butler Fernando was great, he made sure we had every little thing we needed. Each meal is set up at a different location on the property and the food is incredible and beautifully presented. During the day there is a wonderful pool to enjoy and down a few stairs is the beach. The low tide in vilanculos makes for some interesting scenery as the water is very shallow. Part of your package with your stay is a private boat tour where you visit an island and go snorkeling along with an island picnic. Great experience! It was a very relaxing experience and I could stare at the bright blue water all day . Thank you Santorini for creating a very special stay for us. They even set up a private dinner for us on our last night. Thank you to Sonnet, the manager, for being so helpful!

This place was our last stay on our honeymoon trip, and we couldn't have chosen a better place to relax. Starting with the super nice and warm welcome in this spectacular hotel which straight away sends you to paraide, with a refreshing super delicious cocktail. The hotel managers straight away greeted us and showed us around the whole premises, which are everything you need, a beautiful refreshing pool, a second a little smaler infinity pool overseeing the beach, a beautiful common area and then obviously the super nice and spacious rooms. Ours had an amazing big terrace with a big bath and outdoor shower (super romantic!). In general the whole villa with the rooms is so beautifully and tastefully decorated in a greec style with the Mozambique touch. Everyone is so attentive and they are even reading your mind fulfilling any of your wishes before you even said them. We had such an amazing waiter (Pedro), who remembered everything we asked him on previous days, making our days so special and amazing without even having to ask for some things anymore cause he remembered from the days before. Sonette and Hose (the managers of the hotel), were simply amazing in arranging some activities for us, such as horse riding to a fishermans village, beach picnics and the highlight, a boat trip day, with snorkling and lunch on an island where we were completely alone. The whole stay was so amazing and spectacular, we can only recommend everyone to first go to Vilankulos (in Mozambique), cause the people there are so nice, and the beaches and little islands are spectacular. And if you come to Vilankulos, then definitely chose Santorini Mozambique, if you want to have the most amazing stay with the greates people taken great care of you!

Sonnet, the manager, and Sergio, the butler spoiled us in any way they could during our four night stay. The food was excellent!!! We relaxed by the pool, went snorkeling and had a picnic lunch on an island off the coast, did paddle boarding and had massages. Perfect end to our trip to Africa! The only negatives were the long flights and the visa process upon arrival. Have the exact change and be prepared to wait! I highly recommend this beautiful resort!!

Santorini Mozambique is truly Heaven on Earth! We enjoyed 4 days at this magical place, and can't wait to come back! The hotel was incredibly accommodating of our vegan dietary needs, and prepared some of the best food we've ever had! One of our favorite meals was set in the hotel vegetable garden, which was truly a serene and beautiful experience. The rooms are STUNNING and the view from the Santa Carolina suite is one I'll never forget. The upkeep is consistent, and so your room is always fresh! The staff are all incredible, and Sergio truly made sure we had a special time with his attentiveness and care. Also, the decor is INCREDIBLE. We made multiple purchases after seeing items at the hotel - they could truly sell home decor in the gift shop. Finally, the spa is heavenly. I had the Santorini Special and I would 1000% recommend it. Such a perfect blend of massage, facial, and serenity. Santorini Mozambique is truly out of this world!
