After thoroughly enjoying our camping safaris through a number of African countries, we were looking forward to a few days break to just soak up the complete relaxation at this sunny water lodge. We thoroughly enjoyed the facilities of the Flamingo Bay Water Lodge, it is a wonderful setting of huts on posts out in the water. Also the general... More

I don't have expectations when I book our stay in Flamingo Bay, but it's a very nice place to rest and be in the nature with the person you love. We stay in September 2015, and after two weeks I saw on the news that it have occurred a huge fire that destroyed all the beautiful chalets. I hope they... More

We went to Flamingo Bay Lodge for lunch only to find that all the accommodation except for one chalet had burnt down. Although the reception and bar area were still operating the service was shocking. Even though there was only 1 other group of around 12 people we were still waiting for our drinks order 45 minutes after ordering. We... More

We had our honeymoon at this amazing lodge and would recommend it to anyone who wants the most romantic holiday possible. The resort is amazing the food spectacular and the staff super friendly. The road to the lodge is quiet interesting but the lodge has a shuttle and would be the best way to get there. We will return again

It was the trip of a lifetime! We spent 5 days at Flamingo Bay and spent all 5 of those days in absolute awe. It is in the most magical setting and to see nature at work with such powerful force is awe-inspiring. We spent hours each day watching the tide fill up around us and then drift out again.... More

Good location and fantastic views. The menu is not that varied but still offers a good choice. Made a good attempt to make us feel welcomed and relaxed. Good effort to integrate local community in the evening entertainment.

That is where is stops. The service is shocking. Communication with the employees is tough. There is not personal warm and fuzzy feel to the hotel. Menu lacked verity. I will go back to others places in Moz like White Pearl; but not to a hotel that think they are doing me a favor.

This may well have been quite a nice resort but it is let down by an obvious lack of investment in maintenance, poor service, bad food and its location on a marsh. I foolishly relied on the website and wrongly assumed the amount I paid meant it was a top quality hotel. It is not! This was my only truly... More
