I travelled to Inhaca Island Resort at the end of 2010 with my husband.
After reading some unfavourable reviews, I thought I would give my point of view.
I spent a week in Inhaca and had a lovely holiday. We flew with CFA on a short flight from Maputo in a 5-seater plane - not for the faint hearted. We were welcomed with coconut milk which was a wonderful touch.
The weather was gorgeous for 6 out of the 7 days there.
Lying at the pool is very relaxing, but we spent most days on the Portugese Island, a 5-10 min boat ride away, this service is offered free by the resort. The resort equipped us with cooler boxes filled with cooldrinks & snacks which were great to have on the Portugese Island as there is no shop there. Some days it was just the 2 of us on the island alone which was amazing. Just picture crystal clear blue water and plenty of sunshine.
The staff at the hotel are extremely hard working and really try hard to please you.
I would recommend eating at Lucas as their food is delicious. I dont think you could find more fresh seafood!
Another tip: Dont rely on exchanging cash at the bank there. Rather exchange in Maputo.
Dont expect a 5-star resort and you wont be disappointed.
After a week holiday here, I came home extremely relaxed and refreshed!
