We stayed here as the first leg of our honeymoon in Mozambique. The lodge arranged a pick up and a man was at the airport as promised (although he spent most of the drive to the lodge chatting on the phone!).
The pictures of the lodge on their website don't really do justice to the place. We stayed in the stilted room was beautiful and the main building has been superbly built.
The food is excellent and given there are so few rooms the service feels very personal. The beach is an interesting place to walk around and watch the fishermen and locals going about their daily work.
The only slight downside is the local staff don't speak much (if any) English so it is difficult to communicate with them and find out a bit more about them and their lives.
Great place to stay. Mozambique isn't a great destination in terms of value but Ulala is relatively good value for the money you pay.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Ulala is an Eco Lodge located in Murrebue, one of the most beautiful beaches in Mozambique. We are close to Pemba (20 minutes from the city centre, 15 minutes from the airport), in the North of Mozambique. We are a small, isolated, exclusive place, with 6 rooms in beautiful and charming bungalows, all with a view on the Indian ocean. We have taken care to use local materials (coco leaves, bamboos, teak decks, red sand) in all construction, delicately blended with modern facilities to provide comfort with a unique style. Our cosy restaurant / bar is on the beach, and we take great care at giving you the best food we can ! Emmanuelle and Georges will be happy to prepare French Cuisine with a mix of local flair. Wifi, wireless internet, is available at the restaurant. We can also take you outside the lagoon to the coral reef, to do whale watching. Conditions are ideal for kitesurfing from may to october. Ulala is the ideal accomodation for those looking for tranquillity and natural beauty ; the remoteness of the place is an invitation to relaxation. The beauty of the white sandbanks and of the emerald waters shifting with the tides offers a never ending show. The beach is clean and calm. The nearest village is kilometers away. Ulala provides an intimate setting, with a friendly atmosphere, and is perfect for honeymoons, families, couples and friends. We are more a guesthouse than a hotel. ... more less
