White Pearl is situated 100 km south of the Mozambican capital, Maputo, and 30 km north of the Kosi Bay/South Africa border, overlooking a secluded bay with 2km of white soft sand beach. The main guest areas and the air-conditioned suites are set in the dune. The décor of crisp whites and pastel aqua’s exude a cool coastal comfort. With a leisurely pace and designed for comfort, guest areas include a lounge, swimming pool and bar, beach bar with tapas style menu, the White Pearl Restaurant and four poster day beds on the pool deck; all taking advantage of the stunning sea views.
With 22 sensitively designed timber stilted suites, all linked by wooden walkways, the resort takes full advantage of its striking setting. Sophisticated simplicity, cool, clean lines, contemporary furniture and a palette inspired by the surrounding coastal landscape add to this luxurious getaway. The stylish white suites have all the mod cons: flat screen TV's, WiFi, iPod docking station, air conditioning, butler service, in suite dining, indoor and outdoor showers. Suites higher up the dunes have beautiful sea views, while those in the first row have direct beach access. Ceiling to floor windows and doors open the rooms and sitting areas out to the elevated decks with private plunge pools.
You can fill your days with deep sea fishing adventures, scuba diving from the fully equipped PADI dive centre with 16 easily accessible dive sites, relaxing at the main pool and bar, or book an in-room massage treatment on your private deck. Kayaking, horse-riding and endless walks are the order of the day - and shoes are strictly optional. Dolphin trips, snorkelling, whale watching (July – November), and nocturnal turtle walks (December – February) can all be enjoyed during your stay.
Our Opinion - A stylish beach lodge, easily accessed from Maputo, a great add-on to a safari or simply just spend a week here!
