Avani Pemba Beach Lodge

Situated on the northern shores of the Mozambique coastline sits Pemba Beach Lodge. There are 168 rooms, beautiful gardens to enjoy and wander through, beach views and a few activities to enjoy too. It is on the quieter side of the town and is the perfect spot to enjoy a few days before heading off to one of the nearby islands.

Why we love Avani Pemba Beach Lodge!

Set in a stunning location on Pemba Beach, perfect if you need an overnight before heading to one of the islands. The rooms are luxurious and comfortable with air-con, the food is tasty and the staff friendly. The spa is excellent, I had 2 massages and they were absolutely perfect and so relaxing. A wonderful stop-over en route to the islands.

Client Reviews

  • Great relaxing place, friendly staff

    This is a great place to relax in Pemba. Staff are friendly, the restaurant has many meals to choose from and has a number of swimming pools. Perhaps the best parts are the great views of the ocean, with little or no traffic, and the infinity pool next to it.

  • Beautiful, relaxing hotel

    The hotel is very clean and the staff helpful. All of the spaces reminds of the Arabic influence. The spa is top of range, I had an exfoliation and the lady work was amazing. Now I understand why the hotel is of the best hotels in Mozambique.

  • Fantastic location and not only!!!

    I have been there last two days … this place seems forgotten from human race … natural place, amazing view ( i recommend rooms with ocean views), back to the nature … the buildings themselves, architecturally speaking, are fantastic, food, accommodation, staff … everything it is very nice.
