Welcome to Massinga Beach

Mozambique’s coastline is a haven of squeaky white beaches, rustling palms, seafood galore; all pumping to the sultry rhythm of a unique Afro-Portuguese culture.  Massinga Beach Lodge offers holiday makers a heady blend of these, but adds real comfort in a truly luxurious setting.

Massinga Beach proudly ensures that each guest feels just a little exceptional at this private sweep of paradise.

Unspoilt, pristine, exclusive paradise…

Located on the Mainland, on 1,3kms of pristine beach.
Massinga District, Inhambane Province

Located only 89 kilometres north of the historic city of Inhambane and with spectacular 180 degree ocean views and luxurious accommodation, the rest of the world will fade away as you relax, unwind and enjoy Massinga Beach Lodge.

Each luxurious Ocean Front Room has a private splash pool, deck and sun loungers with outsized king bed, mini bar, laptop safe, mosquito net, free-standing fan and separate air-conditioning, stylish en suite rain shower and free-standing bath tub that open out onto a own private deck and the exquisite views beyond.

The Ocean View Chalets have a lounge area with two sleeper couches, but no private plunge pool. These chalets are ideal for families.

Massinga Beach is about relaxing, tranquility and escapism but being on holiday means doing as little or as much as your heart desires so, the Lodge obliges.  Take a leisurely stroll to your private picnic along the stretch of pristine beach, visit local villages to soak up the culture; enjoy the thrill of fishing or diving; watch whales cavort from the comfort of your elevated deck and at night enjoy the wonders of our galaxy.

Indulge in this secluded escape, the peace, the simply delicious food; the breath taking views and luxurious accommodation.  Barefoot luxury awaits…

“We had an ABSOLUTELY amazing time. Massinga is beautiful… service was great… food was delicious… the accommodation was out of this world. It really was the most relaxing time me and my husband have had in a long time

Thank you so so much again!!! I really appreciated it!”

“We had the most amazing and unforgettable honeymoon! Definitely worth every cent! I wrote a review on Tripadviser if you want to look at that. Unforgettable Honeymoon! – Review of Massinga Beach Lodge, Massinga, Mozambique – TripAdvisor

We would really like to go back again some day and will most definitely work through you again.

Have a super day!”
Chantal and Michael 

“It was absolutely wonderful. Everything was perfect except for the long traveling time. Other than that I will do this again.

The hosts were fantastic and also all the staff at Massinga. And don’t forget about Bonji the Jack Russel.”

“It was absolutely sublime! I am so grateful I was still able to go and enjoy such a wonderful experience.

The rooms were so spacious, I loved lying on that enormous bed and enjoying the spectacular view as I read! The deck was a very special place to enjoy God and his magnificent creation. The rain shower was such a treat and I really indulged in gorgeous bubble baths! And as for that plunge pool – absolute bliss!

The only down side was the food at the beginning of the week – there were a number of disgruntled guests and one distraught honeymoon couple. Fortunately Susanne took all the constructive criticism to heart and there was a distinct improvement. The local staff were very attentive and faultless.

I understand the other part owner is busy creating another hotel on the Inhambane lagoon… I think it is called Castelo dol Sol… This may be something for you to look into for other future guests?

Thanks for all your help!

It was fantastic – my heart always seems to draw to Mauritius, but after this holiday at Massinga I will definitely be going back to Massinga.

The location is the ultimate and the food was excellent. Suzanne was unbelievable and the staff great – I can go on and on.

We loved it.
