Getting there is an adventure whatever choice you make - local ferry (cheap), private ferry (US$100) or flight (our choise at US$120, with scheduled departures in a small 8-seater plane - an experience in itself). Ferry trips are about 2 hours and stop right at the lodge and flight is 15 minutes and you are picked up by the lodge...

Thanks so much for the warm hospitality and generosity from your team. Any amenities that might have been lacking were made up by this. Great outdoor holiday, lots of time snorkelling and exploring the Island. Well worth the trip! A special thanks to John the pilot and Carlos the dive instructor!

I stayed at the hotel over a long weekend after a business trip in Maputo. I really loved it. It is set on a rural island. The people there are still so genuine and lovely. Service is awesome - the staff will know who you are even before you arrive. Really felt special. Also got to go to Santa Maria...

Not even near to a 4 star hotel. The room may be considered as acceptable, but doesn’t include any “outdoor” private facilities, such as balcony or patio. The food was a disappointment – very limited choice, very moderate quality. The staff did the best, but management is very poor and inefficient. The beach area at the hotel is shared with...

This Hotel is a good place to spend some days away from Maputo. Unfortunately their is no real beach nearby so you only have two choices: take a boat to the portuguese island or spend the day by the pool. The food is very nice and the service is ok too. The lodges have big rooms and rather clean toilets....

The rooms are tidy and the hotel is exceptional value for money, although there is not a swimming beach in front of the hotel, the hotel takes you to one every day and it is wonderful. The staff are attentive and overall there is a very relaxed atmosphere. Do not miss out, go to Lucas for Lunch. What a great...

Far from a 4 star hotel. The room was Ok but not more. The food was a disapointment. The staf did treir best but didn't know HOW to organize. They need to be informed about restaurant work and many of them couldn't speak English well. The beach was full of rubbish and the tide made it a muddy area. The...

A nice hotel with very very friendly and helpful staff. There is a nice salt water pool. The beaches are fantastic and there is a very nice beach in fron of the hotel.

I recently stayed at the Pestana Lodge for 4 nights. The rooms are nice and clean but upon arrival we mentioned our phone was not working and it was never fixed or replaced during our stay.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated on the beach front, amongst coconut palm groves and luxuriant tropical vegetation, Pestana Inhaca Lodge is famous for its wonderful gardens, food and its warm hospitality. The island is a secure and quiet location that is a port of call for yachts, sailing boats and cruise ships seeking out a tropical option in the turquoise and crystal clear waters of the Indian Ocean. Inhaca Island has been protected since 1976 and still boasts huge areas of untouched vegetation and expanses of velvety water. ... more   less

“Main attractions are all departing from the beach, wich is close to the pool and the restaurant. Ask to be close to them, so you wont walk too much :)”
