Bilene Hotels

This page is dedicated to Hotels, Lodges, B&Bs, in and around Bilene. Previously known as São Martinho, this town has become famous for holiday getaways due to its mixture of water activities in the open sea, or the peaceful lagoon.

Carioca Inn

Carioca Inn Bilene
As you drive down into Bilene you will see the white sands and calm lake with the ocean in the distance. In the middle of the action, but still with a beach almost exclusively for our guests, is Carioca Inn.

We have a selection of accommodation options to suit all travellers with the added benefit of self-catering rooms.
Bilene Accommodation
Within metres of our lodge you will find all of Bilene's most sort after restaurants, bars and other services. We are in the middle of the action but are still tucked into our own private space.

Other than just laying on these crystal white sands you can also enjoy a range of activities both in the calm bay, and out in the boisterous ocean. If you need respite from the water our guides can show you the unseen side of Bilene including the shy turtles. At the end of a long day of relaxing, or adventure, our bar and restaurant are Bilene Beach icons.
