Kwalala Lodge is an oasis of relaxation and adventure on the shores of Nacala Bay in Northern Mozambique. Designed with you in mind, the one-of-a-kind stone lodges and activity centre, provide a world class view of the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean as they cascade over coral banks into indigo depths. The Lodge offers a myriad of activities and customized adventures designed to make your stay truly unforgettable! Nestled in a secluded cove with its own marine reserve, the Lodge provides the perfect vantage point from which to watch the ocean going vessels cruise into Nacala Port, the local dhow's criss-cross the bay, the tuna whip the water into a feeding frenzy, or the humpback whales pass by on their spring migration. The Pelago Adventure Centre, with its friendly and highly qualified staff, is the ideal base from which to discover the largely unexplored underwater landscapes and white beaches of Nacala Bay. The Thirsty Whale Restaurant and Bar offers something to refresh and whet your appetite. Whether you're a business traveler in need of a 'home away from home' or a family looking for adventure off the beaten track, Kwalala Lodge is a special place to make lasting memories and forge new friendships.

After a long drive this was truly an oasis of relaxation, you can feel the vibe as soon as you drive in you are overwhelmed with positive energy, I felt like I went through a time warp , after driving through the somewhat rustic nacala I honestly did not expect such a beautiful property, As I arrived I was greeted by such friendly staff that could speak English perfectly which is rare in Nacala, sat down to an ice cold beer with an astonishing view of the bay ....seriously paradise with all the coconut palms. Then it just kept getting better and better , I am a qualified chef and I'm not lying when I say I had the best Peri peri chicken, when people say authentic Mozambique peri peri chicken this was by far exactly what it was supposed to taste like , succulent, juicy with a nice bite of peri peri , the calamari for dinner was just as good, tasty fresh and tender , the presentation of the food is the best I have seen in Mozambique with fresh organic salad and homegrown herbs, the room was very clean with mosquitoe nets and the rooms have air-cons , towels are provided and there is always hot water, Sabrina the host an manageress is fantastic and really goes out of her way to ensure you are comfortable and really feel at home, all in all a great experience and I would highly recommend every aspect of this establishment

I stayed at Kwalala Lodge for a week for business and Shirley and the team couldn’t have been more helpful, whether organising transport, local SIM cards or supplies for a stranded ship’s crew. Added to the relaxed setting, good food and accommodation, it was a great experience overall.

Good value, clean, delicious restaurant. Overlooking Nacala bay, very scenic. Beach a very short walk away. Comfortable beds. Ideal for business travellers and holiday makers. Probably the best place to stay in Nacala.

We stayed with our family for two nights. The rooms are very good, clean, great quality. The restaurant is outstanding, never experienced this before in Mozambique. Our kids were in the sea most of the time: snorkeling, paddle boarding, canoeing while my wife and I enjoyed the stunning sunset with a glass of wine. It was just one big party!!!

I stayed at Kwalala because I used to live in Nacala and knew about the lodge, so when I decided to visit it was already one of my choices. I was very happy with the service at the restaurant and at my room. the staff are friendly and incredibly helpful, while always respectful. It is a beautiful place to be just for it's setting, but the atmosphere is also very calm and relaxing. I would definitely recommend Kwalala to anyone I know.
