We were well recieved by Schantel and staff members. The staff helped all of us to offload our baggage without even asked, was very impressed. Rooms was well maintained, modern and clean with aircons. We got two rooms on the ground floor. A lot of packing space in the rooms. We were spoiled with Breakfast and Dinner every day. Food was always on time and freshly served with smiles from the staff. Everyday was different servings from the kitchen. Well done to chef and kitchen staff. Our rooms was cleaned every day and we also made use of the affordable laundromat service. The Lodge did supply a lot of entertainment for all of the guests. Quadbikes, pool tables, bookings for deep sea fishing and island hopping and diving, reef snorkeling infront of the lodge. The Bar on the lodge served different types of alcoholic beverages and even milkshakes for the kids. You dont need to pack anything to go to the beach, all infront of you. Walking distance to local bars and restaurants. We did find the lodge very safe. The parking was great and very safe. We did some BBQ ourselves at the lodge. The 2 swimming pools was clean and warm. The lodge was definitely kid friendly. The Wifi was strong and reliable. We had an amazing time and will be back. Welldone .

We visited Vista do Mar lodge with family and friends December 2019 to January 2020. Breakfast and dinner was out of this world. The staff were extremely friendly and helpfull. The spacious rooms with aircons and on-suite bathrooms were serviced daily. The lodge offers 2 bars and a games room with pool tables, ping pong table, darts and two swimming pools. Swimming right in front of the lodge is really safe without dangerous currents.I would really recommend the following activities: fishing trip and scenic cruise to panzy island; snorkeling at the reef a couple of km's in front of the lodge; quad bike trips, game vehicle pub crawling. Thank you Gys and Schantel for the most memorable vacation.

If you are looking for a family or friends getaway this is the perfect luxury lodge.

What's nice is they have fly-in option (private charter plane - 19 seater) direct from Lanseria to Inhambane (less then 2hr flight), makes it a perfect long weekend destination.

The lodge has all luxury sea facing rooms with fabulous lounge/patio area up and downstairs of the lodge.

There are 2 swimming pools with beach loungers and umbrellas which look directly onto the beach.

We had 17 ladies for the trip and was honestly one of the best trips I have done.

The breakfasts and dinners were fantastic and the staff are just SUPERB!!!

We have already pre-booked our trip for 2023 :)

Vista do Mar is one of the few outstanding lodges in Mozambique. The lodge is right on the beach with one of the best locations in the bay, facing North.
The rooms are comfortable on-suit rooms overlooking the sea. There is so much to do and diving and fishing were our priorities. Excellent diving sites and the variety of fish is great.

This is my 2nd December holiday at Vista do Mar and I enjoyed it more than ever before. Great location, superb food and very efficient staff that took care of us at the lodge! Lots to do in the Barra region with great pubs and a beautiful beach to enjoy, literally in front of the lodge. in the past we enjoyed taking a drive to the various restaurants and pubs in the area, but this year we found ourselves not wanting to leave Vista, due to the convenience, great service and superb location.

My holiday was just incredible, from the outstanding service of being doted on for my entire week's trip at Vista Do Mar, to the incredible meals I had. I was spoilt with Crayfish, Calamari, Fish and a constant spread of delicious breakfast treats. With the Beach sand practically touching your toes as you climb out of bed, and 2 different pools to choose from to dip in, I will most definitely be back again. Thank you for making my holiday extra special

Friendly staff, awesome food, great service! Lovely venue, fabulous views, amazing sunsets, pristine beachfront. Marine paradise for snorkelling, diving, angling and scenic cruises. Quad biking, jet skiing, beach walks, jogs, games and local pubs all add to a rich tapestry of fun and a truly unforgettable experience. Thank you Gys, Schantel, Celia and staff for a truly memorable stay!
