Hotel Dona Ana
About Hotel Dona Ana
The original art Deco building is being intimately restored and updated as Dona Ana readies herself to become a distinctive, world-class destination. The design is a fusion of classic and contemporary, offering business travellers and tourists a differentiated experience where Portuguese and African tradition merge in unrivalled splendour. Privately owned and run, Dona Ana is committed to offering the most gracious hospitality to her guests and remaining true to her passion and love for life.
Hotel Dona Ana is located in the coastal town of Vilankulo, which 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 is currently undergoing a substantial upgrade and offers guests daily flights to a number of destinations including Johannesburg and Maputo.
Hotel Dona Ana offers accommodation in rooms in the main hotel as well as beach units which open directly onto the sparkling white beach. Guests can choose from separate or interleading rooms as fits their requirements. All offer unrivalled hospitality and comfort, including air-conditioning, mosquito screens, en-suite bathrooms, minibars, room service, 24-hour power, satellite TV, telephone access, and data connection points.
The Caju pool bar embraces everything that is beautiful about Hotel Dona Ana; effortless elegance, gracious hospitality and boundless sunshine. Set aside the pool, with the Bazaruto Archipelago in the distance, guests can soak up the sun and stunning views while enjoying an array of cocktails and Caju's light and lovely cuisine.
Each night, Colher presents a sultry fusion of Afro-Portuguese a la carte cuisine that is both gracefully presented and unashamedly bold in flavour, while every morning an abundant breakfast buffet is laid out for guests' enjoyment. The Seta bar will strike you with its forthright charm and elegance, and an array of cocktails and beverages plus light meals and snacks can be enjoyed throughout the day. The Ócio pool bar is a welcoming meeting place for families and friends. Guests can enjoy refreshments before heading out on an exciting activity, and return again to relax around the pool and replenish with satisfying snacks.
