Places To Stay In Mozambique

Here are a selection of personally recommended places to stay in Mozambique. We have travelled to, and stayed in, every one.

White Pearl

ponta mamoli

22 Suites

White Pearl is situated 100 km south of the Mozambican capital, Maputo, and 25 km north of the Kosi Bay/South Africa border, overlooking a secluded bay. 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.

Coral Lodge 15.41

north coast

10 Villas

Situated at the tip of a peninsula on Mozambique’s northern mainland, Coral Lodge is surrounded by mangroves, a tidal lagoon and miles of deserted beaches. Just 10 comfortable thatched villas (two of which are family friendly). Guest areas are accessed via wooden walkways and include a swimming pool, sundeck and a small Spa.

Machangulo Beach Lodge

14 Chalets

Machangulo is an affordable and comfortable lodge, easily accessed from the capital Maputo, in a wonderful location with pristine beaches and natural forests. There are 14 air-conditioned chalets, each with private deck and connected by walkways and staircases to the main buildings and the beach.

Massinga Beach Resort

28 Rooms

From its dune top vantage point, Massinga has sweeping 180 degree views, up and down the pristine beach. The 28 rooms all boast ocean views (except for four standard rooms), are spacious with a minimalistic approach to the beach chic decoration and interiors. Rooms also feature a deck, some with a private splash pool. A winding path leads down to the beach and beach bar with a circular swimming pool surrounded by a deck and sun loungers.
