Our trip was amazing from start to finish. Stunning location and so secluded, a real get away and very romantic. We had a beautiful room with a stunning sea view, personal attention from the staff, successful fishing trips and fantastic spa treatments. Boat used for transfer was top notch. The only suggestion I have is for the chef to jazz... More

The resort is a well run beach side lodge on the Santa Maria peninsula of Mozambique, over looking the estuary and bordering the island of Inhaca. Accommodation is reed thatched units with comfortable furnishings, ideal for a breakaway or a family holiday. The unit that we stayed in for 7 days was spotless and the service professional, with a king... More

We stayed at the lodge for our honeymoon in August and the first thing I would point out is that this place is one of the most stunning picturesque locations I have ever visited. The beach, water, reef, trees, dunes and surroundings make for paradise. Our beach lodge was spacious and had amazing views. The only thing that let this... More

A small cluster of individual huts hidden away in a sand dune, 1 1/2 hrs sailing from Maputo. The huts are luxurious, spacious and comfortable. Deserted pure sandy beach, with Dow sunset cruise and whale watching being two great activities on offer. You can even see the whales from the shore! It is however very expensive, especially considering the local... More

This was such a memorable trip. The beach here goes on for miles and is so pure and wild. We really felt at peace here. Our room was also very nice, and being away from TV, just reading books on our terrace with a bottle of good South African wine was a marvelous experience. The food was consistently very good,...

This must be the ultimate get away from it all destination. Palm trees, deserted white sandy beaches and clear water. Unfortunately we only had a quick taste but it was amazing. Greg and Racquel are friendly and relaxed, take pride in Lodge and seem to really care for their guests.
