  • 10.0.Exceptional

    I had the most relaxing weekend at AsDunas for 5 days. It’s a boutique operation that provides very good value, I enjoyed the all inclusive concept. Elena and Fabio are very welcoming and accommodating and they speak several languages. Their tasting menu gives you a chance to experience delicious Italian recipes, and handcrafted cocktails. The safari tents are spacious, private, have their own pool, and overlook the ocean. I highly recommend choosing AsDunas if you go to Vilankulos.

    An absolute gem right on a quiet stretch of untouched beachfront overlooking crystal clear water. The owners and hosts, Elena and Fabio, were so hospitable we felt like we were visiting old friends. The staff was very attentive and made us feel like we were the only guests - five star treatment throughout our 4 night stay. Each night a pre-set 4 course meal is served consisting of mostly Italian inspired dishes, made from fresh locally sourced ingredients, all of which was excellent. Wine glasses are kept full throughout dinner and a menu of original hand crafted cocktails is also available. The rooms were nicely decorated (the beds luxurious) and completely private with a spectacular unobstructed view of the Indian Ocean. If you are looking for a peaceful and very quiet place to relax, this is the place for you. Not a single detail was overlooked in the creation of As Dunas - welcome to heaven. We will definitely be back!!

    asdunas ist für Paare ein Traum, um zu entspannen und einfach nur die Schönheit dieser Lodge und seiner traumhaften Umgebung zu geniessen. Wir hatten eine “tented lodge”, also offen mit nezten, die sehr sauber und romantiach-schön eingerichtet war (keinerlei tierchen oder Mosquitos) und dazu unser eigener kleiner pool ;-) Da die Lodge etwas ausserhalb liegt, wodurch man absolut ruhig gelegen und ergo allein ist, ist aber eben das all inclusive vonnoeten: tolles essen wurde uns morgens, mittags und abends praesentiert von dem super Team - dazu jede Art von drinks und cocktails and sogar italienischem Wein! Die gesamte Anlage war sehr schoen gepflegt! Das meer ist im Dezember sehr warm gewesen, was wir geliebt haben. Einzig die ebbe - bei dem eh schon sehr flachen Wasser - hat das Schwimmen im Meer nicht immer zugelassen... dafuer konnten wir viel spazieren gehen und dann wieder im pool die Sonne geniessen! Danke Elena & Fabio für diesen tollen Aufenthalt!!

    La atención de Elena, su dueña, siempre pendiente del detalle para hacerte disfrutar al máximo. El emplazamiento es perfecto, las vistas desde la habitación, excursiones a las islas, paseos por la playa... . La piscina privada. La comida italiana muy rica. No hay nada que no nos gustara.

    Wunderschöne, brandneue Lodge mit geschmackvollen einzeln stehenden Bungalows im Safari-Zelt-Stil, sehr viel Privatsphäre, eigenem Pool und atemberaubendem Ausblick aufs Meer. Die italienischen Eigentümer erfüllen jeden Wunsch und das gesamte Personal ist sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend. Das Essen ist hervorragend, das vier gängige Menü am Abend überrascht immer wieder mit neuen Variationen von Fisch und Meeresfrüchten. Wir konnten keinen einzigen Kritikpunkt finden!
