    AVANI Hotels & Resorts, a vibrant upscale brand offering relaxed comfort in stylish contemporary surroundings, has added its first property in Africa – AVANI Pemba Beach Hotel & Spa in Mozambique. Situated in the country’s far northern province of Cabo Delgado, in the ancient port town of Pemba, this impressive hotel is the perfect choice for business travellers or for an easy beach escape.With its striking architecture blending African and Arabian design, AVANI Pemba Beach Hotel & Spa is perched on a headland between the rugged coastline of Pemba Bay and Wimbe Beach, overlooking the turquoise Indian Ocean. The 185 guest rooms, suites, villas and apartments are all designed with a dazzling view of the ocean or the gardens from their balcony or terrace. Guest rooms offer comfortable sleeping and working facilities, accompanied by an assortment of entertainment and refreshment options. Suites have the extra comfort of a lounge area. The Two Bedroom Duplex Villas feature a kitchen, dining and living area with an ocean facing terrace downstairs and an en suite queen and twin bedrooms upstairs. In addition, the One- Two- and Three-Bedroom Apartments have an open living, dining and kitchen area with exclusive use of two swimming pools.

    When it comes to wining and dining, the restaurants and bars offer an extensive array of cuisines to satisfy both business and leisure guests. The Niassa Bar invites guests to chat over drinks with friends and colleagues and boasts a menu with an Asian touch. The flagship restaurant, Clube Naval, is located on the beach adjacent to the yacht marina and offers a selection of international cuisine, and at Quirimbas Restaurant creative buffet and a la carte theme nights are abundant with local produce and delicious fresh seafood.

    With the rebranding come some added AVANI touches, such as the newly opened Grab & Go deli, selling high quality chocolates, pasta, olive oils, wines from South Africa, Italy and Portugal, as well as a Segafredo coffee corner. In addition the hotel has just launched an in-room dining service.

    On a site that seems to hover above the Indian Ocean, the idyllic AVANI Spa has been refurbished to new splendour and reflects the Pemba African and Arabian influence in its therapies. An array of treatments is on offer, from massages, body wraps and blissful facials, with each experience customised to individual needs.

    The hotel has become a sought after wedding, conference and incentive destination with its main meeting room catering for up to 200 guests or delegates, and an additional 12-seater executive boardroom. The exotic background of tropical gardens and shimmering sea promises a truly memorable meeting or private event.
