Machangulo Beach Lodge in Mozambique is located alongside the channel between Inhaca Island and the dunes of the Santa Maria Peninsula in Maputo Bay. Thanks to the easy access (just an hour's boat trip from Maputo Marina) this is a far more affordable option than most areas of Mozambique. Guests can even get a direct road transfer to the Maputo Marina after their Kruger safari for less than £100.
Machangulo Beach Lodge comprises just 15 private luxury chalets, all luxuriously furnished with modern amenities and great attention to detail. All have ensuite bathrooms, air-conditioning, mosquito nets and private decks /verandas – and are connected by walkways and staircases to the main buildings and the beach. The villas are ideal for groups and families travelling together.
• 5 Premium Ocean View Rooms - perched high up on a ridge near the main lodge building with breath-taking views of the ocean and Inhaca Island.
• 8 Beach Chalets – nestled in the dune forests and only meters from the shoreline in clusters of 4. Each cluster is linked to a shared pool/deck/lounge/dining/bar and kitchen by pathways.
• 2 Family Villas – Each villa includes 2 separate ensuite bedrooms, lounge, dining room, bar and kitchen. The villas are linked with boardwalks to the beach and have their own private pool and deck.
Machangulo offers a world of fun and exciting activities for the whole family – from relaxing and soaking up the sun on a lounger to the thrill of big game fishing. There is a full activity centre on site with friendly, knowledgeable staff on standby to offer:
Machangulo's new spa opened in May 2015 and offers spectacular views, energized by the ocean and calmed by the forest, which complement the range of Africology treatments including facials, massages and body wraps. Guests can also enjoy treatments in their rooms or in a number of exotic beach locations.
