Five stars for a five star experience! The rooms are surprisingly massive with sea view, upon sea view, upon sea view! The little deck pool gives a nice luxurious touch! The cleaning service did an excellent job each day ensuring that our room was always spotless, and our kitchenette restocked! Service - We were the last of the guests at the lodge before they closed for February off-season maintenance. My husband and I enjoyed "exclusive use" of the entire lodge 🤪, quiet as it was, we never felt alone as the hosts and staff were extremely friendly and spoilt us at every turn. Location - the lodge is perched high upon a hill overlooking the mighty Indian ocean (did I mention the heavenly views??!!). There was a bit of a drive to get up there, but it was part and parcel of the rural Mozambican experience. It was an eye opener for a suburban girl and I considered myself schooled by the time the drive ended. The beach area below is beautiful and almost untouched (full of surprises too)! The food - was delicious, I specifically looked forward to the soup starters and freshly baked breakfast treats every day 😋 Having the freedom to do our full body massages on the room deck overlooking perfection was the cherry on the top! Highly recommend, especially for couples looking for a place to unwind.

Wow we really had no expectations but what a Beautiful place , I would call it Paradise , a Gem 💎 . I have travelled to many places but Massinga was beyond my expectations. The staff were excellent and the chef was so accommodating to the vegetarians. The veggies burger 🍔 is a must. Thank you Rachel, Joaquin, Augustine and Nelson.

We chose Massinga beach for our honeymoon and I'm sure it was the best choice, from our arrival to the day of departure the staff was very helpful. The view from the hotel room is wonderful, the sunrise is even more incredible. The food is quite good and the service is 5 stars.

Beautiful lodge, huge rooms, excellent views and very friendly staff. At the time when we were in Massinga Beach Lodge, there were only 3 other guests, so we could really enjoy the beautiful nature, the beach, the pools and the hospitality. We saw the whales from our terrace every morning!

Second visit after 6 months and so much has changed. It’s becoming a little too “South Africanized”. Wish they could bring back the Mozambican authenticity. The staff is amazing but please bring back Ian.

We were surprised that the lodge was a 2.5-hour drive from where we landed in Vilanculos. It was about an hour's flight from Joburg, SA, so we were stunned by the lengthy drive there. The Manager, Eugenio, is a real gem and made every effort to accommodate us. Still, there were some big misses at the lodge that management must address: (1) Erratic hot water supply led to more of a "cowboy splash" rather than a luxurious hot shower, (2) the property was probably a 4-5 star during its early days but has suffered from weathering, and (3) perhaps the unforgivable sin (which I discussed with Eugenio and the waiter involved), was the fact that ants were crawling on my bread that was served and swimming in the honey brought out for my tea. Needless to say, I had unsweetened tea and no bread for the remainder of the trip. The trip's highlights were that my wife and daughter were happy, which gave me great joy. And we watched the whales breach the water and play from our bedroom as we lay in the bed...now THAT was priceless! One final tip: bring your drinks (wine/spirits), as these are expensive propositions at the lodge.

Dear Sedgec2023, We thank you for your great comments on one of our Managers which is greatly appreciated and that you did enjoy the whale watching. With regards to your remaining comments which have been noted and taken up with all concerned and addressed. Massinga Beach is situated 180kms south of Vilanculos. Due to the speed limits in Mozambique which are in place, the drive from Vilanculos does take approximately 2H30 going through various villages and sightings of the amazing boabab trees. Complimentary soft drinks and waters are included in the transfer. I am sorry to hear about the hot water problem that you experienced for 3 days before advising the hot water was luke warm and not piping hot but glad to hear it was corrected immediately when reported. My sincere apologies on the ants and this has been noted and taken up with the servers and managers who have assured that it was rectified immediately and fresh pots of jam and honey were put out. Massinga Beach is a Full Board Lodge and the rate of the accommodation includes breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea/coffee and upto a 4 course dinner. It does not include beverages which are priced in the local currency and are in line with other establishments. All wines and spirits are imported. We thank you for your comments and the mention of the highlights of your stay. Kind regards The Massinga Beach.

What an amazing place! The views of the sea are amazing and just a short walk to the beach. The staff are friendly and go out of their way to ensure you have a great stay and the rooms are truly luxurious. We had a vegetarian, pescatarian and a vegan and the food was amazing! The staff made sure that they baked and prepared specific meals to cater for our requirements and it was all truly delicious! Thank you to everyone at Massinga Beach Lodge for a wonderful stay!
