• Lodge Lagoa Poelela

The resort

Lake Poelela Luxury Resort 4-star hotel is located just ten minutes from the Zàvora beach, near the town of Inharrime, 350 km north of Maputo. This new Resort is located on the eastern shores of Lake Poelela, from which the Resort takes its name. It’s surrounded by extensive plantations of coconut palms. It offers accommodation in two and four beds chalets on the beach, with private bathroom for each room, shower and hot water. All the chalets are built with indigenous materials with full respect of the surrounding nature. Moreover, they are all very spacious and comfortable. Each room has furnishings and fine finishes. The decorations evoke the typical African warm earth colours, resulting as the natural complement of the idyllic scenery of white sand and turquoise waters of the lake. Sliding French doors with large windows give access to a lovely terrace overlooking the lagoon.

4WD is required to reach Lagoa Poelela Resort.

Lake Poelela offers sundry activities like: swimming, diving, ocean safary, horse riding, angling, kayaking bird watching and romantic sunset cruises.
The great variety of birds make this place a paradise for bird watchers. Since much of the territory of Mozambique is not yet mapped, you may be lucky enough to record a new sighting. It is not uncommon to contemplate the sunset in the company of kingfisher and the lilac-breasted roller.


Mozambique is an extremely safe Country to travel within, the local populations welcoming and friendly. The Resort is watched by local security personnel, 24 hours a day, to grant all our guests the maximum quietness.
