If you are looking for a place that has a butler serving you cocktails by your private swimming pool at your air-conditioned villa, then this lodge is not for you - please stay away! BUT if you want a non-commercial lodge for a wonderfully relaxed holiday with incredible hosts (Craig and Tess) who serve up delicious fresh 3 course dinners - (mainly seafood), mixed with honest unpretentious hospitality and a good dose of fun - then this is your home from home.. This is where you go to unwind, swim in the aquarium in front of the lodge, go diving in some of the best dive sites in the world (so said one of the returning guests who have dived the world), and fish deep-sea for a monster GT, sailfish or wahoo. The resort is eco-friendly with electricity being generated mainly from solar panels. There are great walks and the bird life is prolific. Staff are super friendly and nothing is too much trouble to make your holiday as relaxing as possible. There is an honesty bar that has all the usual. Best is that you never wear shoes or dress up - and we met several very nice guests who are now friends. We just love this spot - a true hidden gem! We will be back.

Tessa and Craig are fantastic hosts, supported by wonderful staff: arrived as guests and departed as friends!! The atmosphere is so friendly and relaxed, and the setting magnificent. The accommodation is extremely comfortable and the food, specially prepared by Craig, is divine. We swam, fished, snorkeled, bird watched, walked, fed eels, learned a bit about the lives of the locals, climbed baobabs and were lucky enough to swim with dolphins... and the cherry on the cake were the household pets, Mischief the Jack Russell and Monty the mongoose!! Loved every minute!!

The place and the managers (together with the staff) made my stay absolute bliss. The Lodge is in a remote Island, south of the Qurimbas National Park. The beauty of the place is remarkable, the comfort of the accommodation makes you stay forever. Tessa and Craig are there to make sure all the details are taken care of: the fire at the sunset, the gourmet food, the coffee always available, the drinks cold and varied. For an experience on place, views, food, diving, snorkeling, ... this is five stars!

Room tip: There are chalets closer to the beach!
