We were staying next door at the Catembe Beach Lodge and visited twice for a change of scenery, one beng for drinks only, the second as we had hoped that we might find a more inspiring breakfast than what we got where we were staying. The hotel appears to be quite striking with its decks, pool area and jetty out...

Was there for a business trip - absolutely fantastic rooms with great care to detail and the most amazing views. I was particularly blown away by the service. Patricia is a gem and we had the most attentive waiter, Daniel, who always went the extra mile to deliver top quality service. Excellent!

Perfect place to visit just outside Maputo. Great location, fab hospitality, very relaxed atmosphere and a spectacular view of MPM. Went with a group of friends to celebrate a 40th birthday and we all had an amazing and relaxed weekend. The staff were amazing and did all they could to accommodate us and make sure that our stay was memorable.

The two penthouses were specious and clean, the personnel was very nice, welcoming and professional, and the general feeling was that of being home away from home with a much better view! No words can explain my very own satisfaction. It was way more...

From where ever you sit, be it at the restaurant, on the pier or on a room's veranda, the view is spectacular. The Maputo skyline looks like New York's. The Katembe beach stretches out on both sides of the hotel, inviting joggers and walkers to appreciate its peaceful environment. The hotel has been revamped, the reception is being remodeled, the...
