Overview Of Resort

The legend of Dona Ana.

There are two sides to every distinctive woman – the passionate lover and the perfect lady. When Senhor Alves fell under the spell of the beautiful Dona Ana, he was entranced both by the mysterious woman and the gracious hostess. In her likeness he created the Hotel Dona Ana as a celebration of her indomitable spirit and seductive persona. Like her namesake, The Hotel Dona Ana is elegant and gracious. And like her, she is also passionate and full of surprises. Beneath that classic Art Deco exterior lays a fiery Latin temptress. She offers the glamor, sophistication and style of a Grande dame with a healthy dash of the spice of life, the rhythm of Africa and the laid back charm of Portugal. On the white sands of Vilankulo over sixty years ago, Senhor Alves fell in love with Dona Ana. Now, you will too, as she takes you on a journey that will exceed your expectations.


Perched on a narrow horn on the Vilankulo harbor, surrounded on two sides by ocean, The Hotel Dona Ana stands. Her windows look out onto the splendour of the Bazaruto Archipelago. The area boasts one of the world’s largest breeding herds of Dugongs, as well as bales of leatherback, loggerhead and green turtles. The surrounding lakes and tidal pools attract flamingos, pelicans and many other water birds.

Her windows look out onto the splendour of the Bazaruto Archipelago. In her day The Hotel Dona Ana played host to scores of local and international tourists. Sadly, for nearly 30 years Senhor Alves’s testament to his love lay empty and forgotten. Now new life has been breathed into the Hotel Dona Ana, energizing her with all the passion and mystery of her namesake.

The original Art Deco building has been intimately restored and updated. The design is a fusion of classic and contemporary, offering business travellers and tourists a differentiated accommodation experience where Portuguese and African tradition merge in unrivalled splendour. The Hotel Dona Ana is committed to offering the most gracious hospitality and accommodation to her guests and remaining true to her passion and love for life.

Her gracious hospitality ensures a convenient and professional base for the pursuit of business interests, with wireless Internet access and data points available throughout the hotel for easy and reliable connections to the world.

There are 22 rooms in the main hotel, including a Honeymoon suite and two Executive suites, while the beach wing boasts 28 classic sea view rooms as well as 1 Garden Suite with separate lounge and bedroom which all open directly onto the sparkling white beach. You can choose from separate or interleading rooms as fits your requirements. All offer unrivalled hospitality and comfort including air conditioning, mosquito screens, en-suite bathrooms, mini-bars, room service, 24-hour power, satellite TV, telephone access and data connection points.

Dona Ana is the perfect hostess for those wishing to conduct business in the region.

The coastal town of Vilankulo offers visitors easy access to the unspoilt majesty of the Bazaruto Archipelago, a protected World Wildlife Trust marine reserve and cultural reserve. The Vilankulo International Airport has undergone a substantial upgrade and offers guests daily flights to a number of destinations including Johannesburg and Maputo. The airport has attracted local and international commercial airline services to this remarkable destination, providing further convenience to both business and leisure travellers.

Dhows carry passengers on leisurely commutes between the islands or, if time is limited, you can hop onboard one of a number of motor boats, scheduled or charter flights that service the Archipelago..
