Benguerra Lodge exudes an East-African-cum- Arabic decor in
line with the ancient tradition of the Archipelago, once the playground of the
Queen of Sheba and the trading route of old Arabia. While it is an island lodge,
care has been taken to maintain the feeling that one is nevertheless embarking
upon an African marine safari. At night one may experience the wonderful whisper
of a gentle sea breeze brushing the cheek or the squeak of clean sand as one
walks along the half-moon beach of Benguerra Bay on a full-moon night.
The main lodge building comprising of Reception Area & Gift Shop, Lounge &
Bar, Dining Room, Library and large deck area, is flanked by eleven comfortable
thatched chalets and 2 new Honeymoon Suites. On the large deck area, guests can
