“PARADISE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2013

Absolutely fabulous! Stunning surroundings. Sam and her staff bring service to a new high. Staff anticipates needs without being intrusive. Friendly and polite. Outstanding food. Would return in a heartbeat. Stress just melts away. Mostly couples when I stayed, but did not feel at all awakward being a solo travler -- everyone made me feel welcome.

Sorry it has taken so long to get this review published. We stay at the WP in December last year. Just an amazing experience from start to finish. The cottages are beautiful with expansive ocean views and every amenity. Service is highly attentive with your own butler who is available anytime via a cellphone that WP provides. I understand however that WP no longer offers the helicopter transfer. Bummer! That was a key highlight and afforded us whale, dolphin and elephant sightings to and from the resort. Not to mention the experience of whisking off to an exotic location in a luxury transfer in 40 minutes from Maputo. Unforgettable for the kids. Why the change? Although I highly recommend the resort... the extra plane ride of almost an hour and then a 40 minute+ car ride on less than civilized roads sounds unappealing.

Dear Guest

Thank you for your review on White Pearl Resorts. We are so glad to hear that you and your family enjoyed your stay.

Being a coastal resort, we were faced with the issue of corrosion that damaged the parts of the helicopter and caused interruptions in the service offered to our guests.

To better serve our guests, White Pearl now offers a sky transfer service via a fixed wing charter and will soon have our own airstrip right at the Resort. The flight between Maputo and the Resort will take only 30 minutes and you will still be able to see the beautiful landscapes and wildlife.

We hope to welcome you back to the Resort soon.

We recently returned from 3 nights at the White Pearl. It is the best place I have ever stayed. The setting is stunning and the chalets are beautifully decorated with private decks, plunge pools, beach access and outdoor rain showers all privately situated so that you don't see or hear your neighbors. The food and service was top notch. My husband took me for my birthday and there was a slight mix-up with the date for our private dinner, but the resort staff went out of their way to beautifully decorate a private setting with a gourmet seafood dinner and beautiful birthday cake for us the next evening. When we returned to our chalet there was a bubble bath drawn with rose petals, a great bottle of champagne on ice and chocolate fondue with fresh fruit for us. This place is spectacular!

Room Tip: Six of the chalets have direct access to the beach. We stayed in No. 6 which is at the end and very...

This is one of the best places I have have stayed at. The location is remote, the resort itself is a marvel, the service was exemplary and the food was out of this world. My biggest pity was that we only booked 4 nights. If we had the funds to stay longer, we really would have. From the time we arrived up to the point when we left everyone that works there made an effort to make us feel welcome and to assist with whatever we needed.

Room Tip: We used the beach rooms for easy access to the beach.

This resort is a little corner of paradise hidden on the Indian Ocean approximately 80 kilometres from Maputo. Travelled there over land, which was quite an experience over dirt/sand roads and through the national elephant park. But arrival here was well worth the journey!
The resort it spectacular! Walking into the perfectly decorated reception area is like walking through the gates of heaven! Spectacularly situated on a white-sanded beach with the waves of the Indian Ocean crashing onto it, there has been no expense spared to make this a first class resort, with every details considered.
Cannot fault the place in any way. The rooms are spacious and beautiful, bath and shower products wonderful, the outdoor shower is literally to die for, and the beds are enormous, and very comfortable.
The food was of a very high standard, just one niggle was that the wine list was not ready on the second night of our stay, and had not arrived before the starters were served. When you are paying these prices you expect perfection. This was disappointing. Also wifi not working in the bedrooms - this could be a plus, though, as we were not interrupted by anything from the outside world!
A bit on the pricey side, but all in all well worth it as everything you need is included.
I would recommend the place for couples, as mentioned in previous reviews there's not much else to do except swim, sunbathe, eat, drink and enjoy the magnificent beach (and bed)! Kids might get bored. We stayed 2 nights, and were really sorry to leave, but I would say 4 nights maximum and you would be itching to do something else.
I am definitely saving up for another trip soon, what a wonderful way to relax and chill, and forget the world!

Room Tip: Choose a room with beach access

What a fantastic resort. Stylish 5 star facility right on an unspoiled stretch of beach. Luxury and fantastic views of the the warm Indian Ocean. Water crystal clear with very good waves. Great fishing around the point. You get allocated a butler when you arrive and he is at your beck and call.
Great food and good service. Great location for a very relaxing holiday. Great fishing and diving spots just of the coast with some of the nicest reefs in the world to explore. Visibility is great most of the time. Close enough to ponto du oro . Must have 4x4 vehicle to get in via Kosi bay.4.5 hr drive from durban.

Room Tip: All rooms are great.
