There are 9 rooms that face the ocean, close to the beach, and each offer guests a private deck with stunning views over the turquoise waters. The rooms themselves are luxurious and beautifully decorated with a touch of Africa through them. With gorgeous views from every angle as you are surrounded by 5 marine and nature reserves…it is truly unique and gorgeous location.


It is no secret that Mozambique offers some of the best snorkelling spots in the world, full of bright corals and numerous species of fish. At Machangulo it is one of the most popular activities and offers guests 2km of pristine snorkelling, you can head out to the island for the day, enjoy the natural aquarium and stop off for a picnic on the beach. If you don’t want to venture too far, during high tide you can walk out of your room, down to the water and enjoy snorkelling just in front of the lodge too.

Client Reviews

  • Unspoiled beauty

    Completely beautiful and not yet a developed area so retains its beauty. It is a perfect place to relax and not do a lot. All of the staff were really friendly and often came to check everything was ok. The room (room 5) was beautiful with fantastic views out to the island.

  • A small piece of paradise

    We ave been to Machangulo for 3 nights and absolutely fell in love with this place. The experience starts with the approx 1 hour transfer from the marina to the lodge. Sit back, relax and enjoy the beautiful nature on the way already. Upon arrival the welcome was amazing and very personal.
