We accidentally found Casa Dunas in November 2012. I've subsequently been back twice . . can't get enough of the place. A truly magnificent house that has you stuck between wanting to keep the treasure a secret and trying to figure out who next to bring to this piece of magic overlooking the Indian Ocean!

We've traveled to the lodge by 4x4 through the elephant reserve, private plane right to the reserve and even a charter boat and return ferry . . no matter how you get there it all just adds to the mystique of this jewel that deserves regular rediscovering

Visiting from Australia, my wife, two adult children and I stayed at this piece of paradise in April last year and had the most stunning and relaxing experience. The location in Mozambique and the facilities, backed up by great support staff, are simply unique and magnificent. Days spent relaxing on the deck overlooking an endless ocean, sitting at or in the pool with a cold one , or exercising and fishing on the beach where no else is to be seen, made the holiday one of the best possible. Seafood lunches in the local village, tended by the friendly locals, were followed by relaxing sun downers on the beach near the village. This holiday is difficult to truly describe in words so Casa Dunas should be visited to really understand what a great experience this is

“Five Star accommodation set amongst untouched natural beauty”
Reviewed April 18, 2013 for a stay in January 2011

We had the most wonderful holiday at Casa Dunas. This home/lodge offers 5 star luxury set amongst natural fauna and flora. Each of the bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms - the beds and linen are all of a very high standard and the decor tastefully blends with the beautiful surrounds. The home has been so well equipped - you just need to bring your food, drinks and personal belongings. The staff ensure that the house is always well looked after and tidy - which makes your stay comfortable and relaxing. Views from the deck are breathtaking - you look out on kms of untouched beach and sea. You can walk for miles and not see another person. The natural pools are great to laze in - and would be ideal for anyone with small children wanting a safe place to swim. The local village is a short drive away and you will be pleased to find fresh fish (if you have not caught your own)and prawns for sale as well as basic vegetables. Basic tinned provisions and drinks can be purchased from the local stores Don't miss the local "Pau" bread which is made daily and sold from the market. We enjoyed a few trips to the local pubs and restaurants - which offer basic menus - but well worth trying. The residents of the village are friendly and very helpful. We drove to Casa Dunas - the directions we had were excellent. 4 x 4 absolutely essential. We loved the local radio station - LM radio - great music. Another must do is a trip on a Dhow across to Inhaca Island. This takes about 45 minutes. The snorkeling is fantastic. We recommend you take beach umbrellas as there is not much natural shade and pack a picnic basket and cooler box for the day's outing. Casa Dunas offers you a place to enjoy special time with your family and friends while recharging your batteries. You will return home refreshed and happy and wanting to return to this beautiful home / lodge.
