I stayed 4 nights at Coral lodge and it was a spectacular experience! I would definitely come back to this beautiful place, and next time, I would make my stay longer! The staff are very welcoming and hospitable; the food is amazing (they serve very generous portions), you get a breath-taking view of the ocean and the lagoon; and above all, they have many activities (my personal favourite was Canoeing, the staff even taught me to Canoe!). I went during the whale season, and it was a magnificent and memorable experience. Though I travelled alone, a few of the staff accompanied me on the boat trip to see the whales, so it made me feel comfortable, and safe as well. I highly recommend this place for solo travellers like me, who at times want to disconnect from everything around to connect with nature. I did Canoeing in the lagoon almost every day, it was a peaceful experience; and when you canoe through the mangroves, you could see the lagoon fish from the surface, and you also see birds and monkeys at times. Then on your return trip, you could see the beautiful sunset. The visit to Cabeceira village was one of the most touching experiences for me. It was nice to know that most of the staff working at the lodge are in fact employed from this little village, thereby supporting the local community there. I even learnt that the bread that is served at the lodge is sourced from a baker in this village. During my village walk I even managed to see where some of the staff lived in this little village and encountered some of them there. If I had stayed longer, I would have definitely gone back again to spend more time with the community in this village. I also watched the sunset under the famous baobab tree. The team takes you on a little walk to watch the sunset and packs some snacks and a drink. To get there, you need to cross the lagoon from a Canoe, if it is during high tide (and I was all excited for any number of Canoe rides). The lodge is located minutes away from Ilha da Moçambique, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and you can also ask the lodge to organise a visit there. The lodge has about 10 villas in total, and if you get the beach villas, you could see the dhows sailings on the turquoise waters from your villa. There are 47 staff in total, so you can imagine the level of care and attention every guest gets, and the standard of quality they maintain. I most definitely felt pampered, and everything was planned with much attention to detail.

This hotel was amazing. Every need was catered to: food, drinks, activities, service. For example the food was curated to our dietary request and served to us in a variety of picturesque settings. Staff were unfailing helpful, kind and fun to be around. The setting is magical and the accommodations were clean and well appointed

I spent 6 nights here from September 25 2020. The location is superb. It rests on a small peninsula, with the sea on one side and a laguna on the other, and crossed by a mangrove chsbel. There's a large tidal zone with a deep natural pool at the end of a small channel. At low tide you have to walk around 600 mts to get to the sea. At high tide you get it at your door. The colors of the water and sand and rocks are just stunning. With the sails of the dhows, it makes it photo perfect. The facility matches the beauty of the place. The huts are exquisite, with a beautiful decor. The staff is excellent, very professional and very friendly. The food (we chose mostly the seafood option) is equally excelent, cooked by two young chefs trained on site by professional chefs brought from somewhere else; their teachers should be proud of their students. You have to ask for smaller portions if you care about your waist line. You must be ok with pets. There were 6 friendly dogs and a cat on site. They love to interact with the guests. Besides walks to both sides of the beach, and some swimming and snorkeling at the chanel natural pool (lots of fish, some surprisingly big, even at low tide), there are a few special activities organized by the management or outsourced from the island - sailing cruises, powered sea safaris when the whales are around, boating tours along the mangrove chanels, up to the local village with a walking tour of the village, from where most of the staff is recruited and trained on site. There are also kayaks, but it's difficult to kayak in the chanel because of the tidal currents. So better to use them at the sea. There's also a moderate size infinity pool, but I prefer the chanel natural pool. Finally the managers are also extremely nice. At the end of our stay we got one of the most beautiful farewells one can think of. So, if you want a beautiful and historical place to spend some beach days in Moçambique, Coral Lodge is a highly recommended option, perhaps complemented by a few nights at one of the beautiful lodges at the actual Island of Mozambique.

We stayed for 3 nights in an ocean facing family villa. Was a wonderful room that our children loved and we did too. The beds were comfortable and all we needed was there. Sitting on the front deck watching the wonderful tides and colors was lovely. Beto and his team made sure everything and everyone were happy. They set up a meal on the beach, one by the pool and another under a gorgeous tree with a fire. The food was consistently amazing. The cocktails and wines available were great. The grounds are gorgeous to walk around. We kayaked around the mangrove. The boat transfer to/from Ilha is an experience one will remember forever. Coral Lodge is simply wonderful, and the part of Mozambique it is situated on us breathtaking. We can not recommend it enough, and we can’t wait to go back!

We spent our family holidays in the place of our dreams. We were travelling with our 3 years old daughter and we wouldn’t have choosen a better place. She spent all her days Playing on the velvet beach in complete peace and freedom. Sorrounded by the christal sea and astonishing nature we felt like in a lost paradise. This place is so precious because is unique, not commercial. The warmth of the people working in the lodge Made us feel like kings and queens. Luxury and care of every little detail are the best words to describe Coral Lodge. Everything was perfect from the delicious food, to the beautiful and spacious Villa on the beach. Best thing to do besides al the words is to book a Villa and go there as soon as possibile!

Coral Lodge was such a great find. The lodge is set on a beautiful peninsula just of Ilha Mozambique, with the best of both worlds, a breathtaking beach one side and a stunning lagoon and marshland teh other. The rooms are luxurious with all the modern cons and beautiful views of the beach/ sunrise or lagoon/sunset. Riccardo and Filipa are a fantastic management couple and really care about their guests soo much and want them to have the best time. The boats/ kayaks and snorkelling equipment are all brand new and in fantastic condition, I was lucky to have great whale sightings too. The food is very tasty and complimented by a wonderful team of staff who always go the extra mile. Don't forget the in house tailer who is excellent…. love my new chitenje jacket!!

I have never stayed at a resort that came anywhere close to the matching the incredible experience that we had at Coral Lodge. White sand beaches, a spectacular property, cozy places to rest with views of the ocean stretching in every direction and sumptuously appointed cabins. Filipa was an incredibly attentive and thoughtful host who ensured that we had an incredible stay. She organizes a picnic meal on a secluded island with bartender and cook. We had breakfast on our deck overlooking the ocean and dinner under the stars on the beach. We were taken snorkelling on gorgeous reefs with the latest in snorkelling gear. The food was excellent and Coral Lodge is in a very supportive relationship with a local village that we had the opportunity to visit and who's members clearly value this remarkable establishment. We were picked up at the airport and Filipa was careful to provide us what we needed for our entry Visas. This was absolutely the highlight of our trip to Africa.

It was our first time in Mozambique and I have to say I felt not very welcome at the airport in Nampula, the officials do not give the impression to value tourist...But all that changed when we arrived at Coral Lodge, warm and friendly reception, the lodges are beautiful and tastefully decorated. Given the challenges of been located in a poor and underdevelloped country, Filippa (the manager) and all the staff did a wonderfull job to make our stay there very special, everything was done with a big smile.The (sea)food was amazing and the organizated trips ( to Mozambique Island, the local village, the sunset drinks ) made our stay even more special ! A big thank you to Filippa and allthe staff ! Highly recommended

On our recent visit, we were amazed by this place like in the middle of nowhere. On arrival we were met by this bundle of dynamite. Filippa is the Manager and must add, this lady is dynamite. She is hands on, work and manage her team with great skill. She and the Staff are friendly, attentive and just great.The food was the best, simply delicious and good variety. Thank you to Ricardo and his kitchen Staff. We preferred the Sea view Villas to the Lagoon Villas. Although they are exactly the same, (I must add - spacious, comfortable the bathroom absolutely amazing) We just find it cooler on the seaside and then also of course the view. Overall, the most beautiful Lagoon, the sun beds on the beach and pool gives you the perfect holiday experience. This is where the Babies come in, all we had to do was sleep, relax, eat and just make a noise to be attended to. The travelling is time consuming, but at the moment it is how it is. We were transferred by boat from Ile de Mozambique.( Interesting history)which does make it easier and you will not have to encounter the 30 km bad road a lot of readers are talking about. This was one more of those Africa experiences, I can tick off my list and sit back and say. Wow this was worth it
