My wife and I spent part of our honeymoon there. What an amazing place. It is difficult to know where to start. From the minute they picked us up at the airport to when we were dropped-off there again at the end of the stay we were treated like royalty. Mel and Paul, the managers, and their staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Even Bongi and Wolf, the "watch dogs", are ready with a happy face.
The view from the lodge is just amazing. Situated at the top of the hill you can see for miles down the coastline. The beach itself is in pristine condition. It doesn't seem to end. We were able to see many whales passing by. The sea water at the beach was a really warm temperature. What made it even better, we were never blasted by the wind like many of South African beaches. Come to think of it, I have not found a beach in South Africa that comes close to Massinga beach.
The food at Massinga Beach Lodge was just out of this world. This feat is even more incredible if you consider how far this lodge is from any market, and the markets that they do have access to often do not stock the luxuries Westerners come to expect in an upmarket hotel. And for those of you that think you only get fish and chicken in Mozambique, these guys served me the most tender steak I have ever tasted and I have had many a steak!
The facilities at the lodge are also top-notch. The chalets are well-appointed with everything you would expect from a top hotel. It has everything you could possibly want. The chalets are also nicely spread out so that you can have your own privacy but not too far spread out that it feels like it takes you for ever to get to the restaurant. There is also a golf cart to transport you around if you are feeling lazy. We enjoyed the view from our bed.
I would definitely recommend Massinga Beach Lodge to anyone.
Definitely try to get one of the chalets at the front.
