Situated on the remote peninsula of San Sebastian within the Sanctuary and Marine Reserve of the Bazaruto Archipelago, Moyeni Lodge is a private and exclusive upmarket lodge, offering both a beach and bush experience. Close enough to hear the soft swirls of the tides and high enough to admire the endless views of the ever changing blues of the Indian Ocean.
A top all-inclusive venue for weddings and other special events such as milestone birthdays, engagement parties, family reunions and business team building events, the resort can accommodate up to 12 guests in 6 private Chalets.
Six sea facing chalets are just a few steps away from the beach and are spaciously designed and decorated with a hint of the exotic. Each en suite chalet includes a private veranda, inviting guests to view the moving tides and nature from the luxury of their room. All chalets are serviced daily.
The Lodge staff are intuitive, thoughtful and deliver a warm service, coupled with authentic Mozambican hospitality. Fresh fish and shellfish are caught daily and the chef serves an array of tasteful dishes, and is inspired to cater for most palates, sourcing the freshest ingredients where possible.
There is a 15 meter lap pool for exercise or to just relax on the water seats with a drink in hand.
This lodge is ideal for friends, families or small groups of up to 12 guests.

Mozambique and particularly the Bazaruto Archipelago is one of the few places where game fish are still plentiful: Dorado, Barracuda, Tunney, SailFish, Marlin and several other species. This is also due to a strict conservation policy implemented and monitored by the Sanctuary.

About The Sanctuary
The San Sebastian Coastal Reserve is a 30 000 hectare reserve located in the southern area of the Bazaruto Archipelago and is considered a biodiversity hotspot. With 57 residential sites and upmarket commercial lodges this model of low-impact, high-value ecotourism has uplifted the community through job creation and will preserve the dynamic biodiversity of the region.
In October 2000 the Council of Ministers in Mozambique authorized this area of 30 000 hectares of land and sea to be developed for the establishment of an eco-tourism project with low density tourism facilities for commercial and private use. Also involved is the management of a fully protected area for the conservation of all indigenous species, marine flora and fauna.
The neighbouring communities are the local inhabitants on the peninsula for hundreds of years and their main livelihoods are subsistence farming or fishing. Residential development and Lodges on the sanctuary aim to recruit staff locally and use local building materials from the communities to further support the local economy.
