What started out as a men only, 60th pre-birthday bash, ended up being a hell of a 5 day celebration in 5 star comfort - one of our friends immediately booked the entire hotel for December 2017. This is a place one needs to book out in it's entirety to be enjoyed with family and friends or in solace. It...

The location and quality of accommodation is excellent with stunning ocean views from every room ,Chantelle and her staff spoiled us with fabulous seafood meals and bent over backwards to ensure our every request was met.

Great lodge with great management and friendly employees. Very comfortable rooms and the food is the best in the Inhambane Province. Every time I visit the place it has been improved. The activities are great and the yacht trip to pansy isle land was brilliant.

We were delighted with our time at Vista do Mar - from the room right on the beach to the wonderful staff headed up by Chantelle and Gys who went out of their way to make our stay special. We definitely would like to return, but next time we would fly rather than drive. A great place to unwind

This was my 3rd visit to Vista Do Mar and sadly it has lost some of it's sparkle. The location is fabulous but we missed the small touches. Previously the sense of arrival was great, bottled water in the car when being collected from the airport, chilled facecloths upon arrival at the hotel, a welcome cocktail and a small bag...

The best word I would use to describe Vista do Mar Lodge is "Quality." The lodge is very easy to find and accessible with a regular car. The quality experience began the moment we first arrived with a warm greeting by the manager. The location is right on the beach--much closer to the water and quieter than the hotels at...
