I don't even know where to start. The location is perfect, the food is amazing and the service is OUTSTANDING! Ian and his entire team really went out of their way to make our stay wonderful. Nothing was ever too big an ask for them. We went to celebrate my birthday in April. Ian organized a private surprise dinner for my husband and I in our room, and I even got a specially baked birthday cake :) The only reason I've rated 5 stars is because that is the maximum rating. They truly deserve way more. Thank you Ian and team for the perfect stay. We will definitely be back!
Holiday in paradise. The beaches, professional service and wonderful cuisine is enough to revitalise one. Waking up each morning greeted by a spectacular sun rise filled our souls with gladness and gratitude. The staff is well trained, unobtrusive, friendly and totally accommodating. We left feeling relaxed, revived and totally pampered .
Where to start! :) The hotel is situated in the most beautiful setting, overlooking long white, untouched beaches with tons of natural beauty all around. The treatment we received from the manager was nothing less than VIP! Each day Ian would assist us in setting up activities, from scuba diving at a nearby dive centre (Peri Peri Dive Centre - also great!), to snorkeling to massages on our own private deck. Each day we selected our meals for the day, and each day they added a special veggie option for me. The food was delicious (especially the seafood as advised by my non-veggie husband:). All the staff were also so amazingly helpful and friendly - by the time we left (after 1 week) it felt like family :) We really can't recommend Massinga Beach Lodge enough!
My wife and I had the most incredible long stay at Massinga. The resort is very secluded, in a truly beautiful location right in the ocean (you drive a while to get there but it’s totally worth it). Ian, Eugenio, Joachim and genuinely the whole team provide very good service, and everyone is super friendly and attentive. We had quite a long stay of almost two weeks, and so we were pleasantly surprised to see a different menu with great food (especially the seafood options!) every day including great buffet spreads on New Years and Christmas Eve, and a great standard breakfast - the chefs are great! We got to stay in the honeymoon suite which is extra large with plenty of space and things to do for a long stay, including our own pool and lounge looking over the ocean, really quite a special room. Also great options to walk on the beach, play pool and table tennis, enjoy the hotel bar and pool at the beach, and swim in the ocean. The rooms are large and very open, with good long beds and great views. Bring lots of sunscreen and a hat, Moz is really hot in December. We’ll definitely stay here again.…
Massinga lodge is such a gem. Our room was very luxurious with our own plunge pool and deck chairs. The food is amazing and changes everyday. The beach bar is a great place to spend the day as it has so many activities available and right on the beach. The best part of our holiday were the staff, really such friendly people are willing to help and assist in anyway they can. Lovely holiday for friends, family and couples.
We last visited Massinga Beach Lodge 10 years ago (2011) for our honeymoon. Fast forward to 2021 and we chose to celebrate our 10 year anniversary back in paradise. All Covid-19 precautions are adhered to, and the lodge allows for perfect social distancing. From the moment we were met by Domingo at the airport, we felt back "home". The incredible service from all involved within the lodge is amazing, and it was great to see some familiar faces after 10 years. The barman, waiters and chef go out of their way to ensure you have everything you need. Ian is an incredible manager and really cares about all his guests. We spent each day at the beautiful beach bar sipping on cocktails, watching the ocean. We did snorkel one morning, but unfortunately the weather and wind blew in some blue-bottles cutting our session short (no fault of the lodge) The Ocean Front deluxe rooms are an absolute treat with their own splash pools and uninterrupted views on the ocean. The is a constant supply of electricity with generator back-ups (Which other luxury lodges in the area don't offer) The food is absolutely incredible, if you eat seafood I'd highly recommend those options for each meal! Although the other alternatives were just as tasty. The pictures don'd do the perfection justice, and definitely is an experience to be had- whether it be a work trip, romantic couple stay or a family holiday- Massinga will tick all the boxes. Thank you Massinga team, we hope to see you again!…
5/5 So where to start... Forget about the drive from the airport because what awaits you at Massinga Beach Lodge is priceless... So let's start at the other end of the scale. Least we forget the behind the scenes people... A special shout out to the surpurb Chefs.. Fernando and Bambino for preparing absolutely incredible dishes .. Also to the waiting staff Domingo, Pascoal, Ernesto, Vilanculo for their friendly and attentive service. Then to one of the managers Joaquim which not only welcomed us to this beautiful place but went above and beyond to assist us with a Sim card and Data so we could have connectivity etc. Also a big thanks to the other manager Eugenio for cutting short his time off to give us a great tour of the local Village and Culture . And then of course behind every dynamic team lies the quite hero the GM Ian ... The personal touch mystro... Nothing was an effort and his attention to detail unsurpassed... Then finally the Lodge and Location it's self.. FANTASTIC.. The old saying that pictures don't do it justice applies here.. IF SPECIAL PLACE UNDER THE SUN WITH FRIENDLY STAFF AND UNRIVALLED SERVICE AND TREATMENT IS WHAT YOU'D LOOKING FOR .... LOOK NO FURTHER.... …
If there was an extra star, I would give it to Massinga Beach Lodge. From the luxurious rooms overlooking the beautiful Indian Ocean, to the amazing staff who welcomed us so warmly and treated us like queens throughout out stay. Special mention has to go to the chef, the menu options were different every single day and each meal is prepared with excellence. Our driver Domingos was always available to take us wherever we wanted to go, and even carried our luggage into our room! Hosnestly, the entire experience of Massinga Beach Lodge is worth every cent, and I would love to come back for the royal treatment and breathtaking views. Ian and his team of dedicated employees really outdid themselves every single day we spent here. Thank you for this experience.
Just want to say thank you for the great service...Eugenio, Vilankulos, Domingo, the chef and everyone. Thank you for the upgrade to the best luxurious villa, number 17. Everything was perfect, best seafood, water pressure on the shower, pool on the deck, massage in the room... Massinga Beach Lodge is beautiful, offers visitors the best beach experience and it's serene! Really loved it!
We were at Massinga Beach Lodge with some friends and all of us loved our stay. The rooms are luxurious and very comfortable. The bathroom is amazing!! We are vegans and the effort of the chef to prepare us different and delicious meals each day made our stay more special! We loved our lunches and dinners. The staff was super friendly. The beach it self is so different from what we usually see, with this beautiful rocks. We had a great time there and we loved the company of a special friend, a Jack Russel old boy, he spend all the days with us! Thank you Massinga Beach Team! We think that the way to the lodge from the main road could be more signalized.
