This splendid resort is managed by the marvelous couple, Tess and Craig. Tess is a fabulous diver and remarkable underwater photographer. She captures the full up sea life with skill and clarity. Craig produces magical sustenance from his kitchen mixing and matching available food with finesse and culinary skill.
There is much to do to keep one busy if so inclined . Scuba diving,snorkeling ,deep sea fishing( One of the best rigged boats I have fished from)and walks.
A fantastic 10 days at Situ .

Situ is a diving getaway must! And what's more one is thoroughly spoilt by the warmest reception from hosts Tess & Craig and all the staff. The lodge is wonderfully comfortable and feels so authentically remote with its sand floors, simple decor and beautiful outlook onto the tidal beach and rocky 'bommies'. The rooms are private, set apart from each other, and perfectly designed with beautiful interiors. Craig is the best chef ever .... we were indulged with the freshest of seafoods, salads and fruit and then delicious desserts .... how does he do it in such a remote setting?? Tess is warm and on the button of everything. And then the diving - superb reefs and superbly guided by Predi, Situ's diver instructor. It couldn't have been a more perfect week.

Two years later and we visited again to find the same gem of a place with friendly staff, well run by Tessa and Craig, food great, diving great and relaxed so hope that it is not another two years before we go back again. During the whole time never wore shoes or shirt so it a casual place. Our group from Cape Town, PE, EL and Durbs got on really well and it was great to meet like minded friendly people. Highly recommended.

Room tip: All rooms face the sea.

Another hidden gem just off the coast of Pemba - If unpretentious barefoot luxury is what you are looking fo this may fo you, if you looking for a villa with a plunge pool and butler then keep on looking!! Situ is about an hour boat ride for Pemba and hence an easy and budget friendly transfer. It is in a great setting amongst some fantastic fishing and diving spots. Their boats and diving/ fishing equipment are solid and well maintained. Craig and Tess are such good people and fantastic managers, its very obvious how well they treat their staff and how respected they are, its like a family. The food was world class... its clear how passionate Craig is about the food and it shows… sooo good!! This spot is awesome and great value and I felt at home from the minute I arrived. It should be in your Mozambique itinerary.

Great destination for a family holiday. Our ages ranged from 3 years old to 70 years old. Craig and Tessa were wonderful hosts. They offered a wide range of activities which accommodated all the different age groups and were particularly kind and good with our grandchildren, as hosts they created a very happy and relaxed atmosphere.
