We visited Dugong Beach Lodge in September and I really have no negative feedback about this lodge. Everything was superb and the service from the staff made our stay unforgettable!
The lodge is situated on the Mainland of Mozambique not too far from Vilanculos on the San Sebastian Peninsula. Due to the location of the lodge it actually feels that you are on one of this islands in the area as you view will be the ocean and the mainland in the distance due to the curve of the peninsula. You also reach the lodge via boat transfer from Vilanculos. I have been on all the islands in the area and it really felt exactly the same.
The lodge it self has an amazing location and the rooms at directly on the beach and at high tide the water comes all the way up to the steps in front of your room. The chalets are luxury and attends to all your needs. The food and service at the lodge was superb! They are busy creating their own reef under the main jetty and the snorkelling in front of the lodge was very good! Just be careful of the incoming and outgoing tides. They do however also offer other snorkelling and diving opportunities in the area at an additional cost.
I can recommend this lodge to anyone wanting to experience a great Mozambican Island Holiday less than a 2 hour flight from Johannesburg.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Located on 30 000 hectares of pristine Marine and Wildlife territory, it provides a unique Beach & Wilderness Experience in a hidden corner of sub-tropical Africa. This diverse eco-system of wilderness and wetland, with its powder white beaches and crystal clear water is host to a magnificent array of fish, dolphin and most importantly, the nearly extinct "Atlantic Dugong" (which resembles a sea lion). Shallow and deep water reefs reveal beautiful creatures such as the great leatherback turtles, sailfish and manta ray. Deep-sea fishing of marlin and barracuda is truly spectacular and the large flocks of flamingos and pelicans are a sight to behold. ... more less
