We were very impressed with the way the resort is run by Craig and Tess and the rest of the staff who were very friendly. During our weeks stay several other people stayed who were also friendly...

Enthusiastic. Irreplaceable. The food. My word. THE FOOD! Home made, handmade, unique and bloody delicious. The views... Everywhere your...

We have just returned from paradise. What an amazing holiday we had. Tess, Craig, Mischief (the dog) and all the staff were perfect. The accommodation was out of this world and the food was delish. Even though we are not scuber divers, we had a blast snorkelling, swimming, fishing, kayaking, walking around the island, walking along the beach, and enjoying...

Craig and Tess they really know to please a guest. The bungalows are simple and have everything you need to have a comfortable stay. Food is great and good fresh seafood. Team members are nice people. You can do long walks along the shore. You have available fishing and diving.

We recently spent our 40th wedding anniversary at Situ Island Resort and our only regret was that we didn't spend longer. Tess and Craig are undoubtedly the best hosts you could ever encounter at a Lodge going out of their way to make your stay special.

Ever wished to escape the rigors of life and disappear to a remote island where you can truly relax and unwind with just your friends or family around? Add to that the exquisite beauty of a nature reserve which boasts some of the best dives and fishing in the world, sumptuous meals made of local delights, and relaxing on a powdery white beach. All this just off the Mozambican coast. Welcome to Situ Island Resort. The most relaxing holiday destination to date. Situated in the most southern section of the spectacular Quirimbas National Park, Mozambique, Situ Island forms part of the Quirimbas Archipelago - 28 islands of which 11 are coral islands between the towns of Pemba in the south and Palma in the north.
