Situated on the beachfront, amongst coconut palm groves and luxuriant tropical vegetation, the Pestana Inhaca Lodge is famous for its wonderful gardens and its warm hospitality and seafood. The island is a great destination for anyone who wants to enjoy the relaxed rhythms of a small, semi-tropical Indian Ocean island.

Located on the fringe of the tropics, it is rich in breathtaking beaches, coral reefs and exotic marine life, offering amazing scuba diving sites and big-game fishing. Inhaca Island has been protected since 1976 and still boasts huge areas of untouched vegetation and expanses of velvety water.

Inhaca Island is easily accessible by boat or ferry from the capital of Mozambique, Maputo. Situated 15 minutes by plane from Maputo, there are daily flights, Maputo-Inhaca-Maputo with Tran Airways. The runway is located approximately 10 minutes away from the lodge. The transfer from the airport to the lodge is carried out by the lodge itself and is free of charge for its guests. Boats are also available daily as an alternative mode of transport.

The picturesque lodge offers a total of 40 rooms situated amidst magnificent coconut palms and exotic gardens. The restaurant at the lodge is located in the main building and has a seating capacity for up to 120 persons. It is always open for dinner whenever the weather is unsuited to outdoor eating and serves a buffet of Mozambican, Portuguese and international specialities.

The Pestana Inhaca Lodge is also the perfect place to celebrate a special day such as a wedding or birthday. The conference area comprises approximately 113 square metres and has a capacity for up to 80 guests.

7 Reviews on Pestana Inhaca Lodge

Everything was fabulous at the lodge; we had a great weekend for my partner's birthday. The only challenge was us not being able to find out how to get back from the island on a Monday so we had to book a separate plane. The food was lovely, room beautiful, and staff extremely friendly. Thanks all!

Brilliant, fantastic, excellent, superb.......everything was over and above our wildest expectations...from the weather to the hospitality, we will definitely be going back sometime in the future to re-celebrate our honeymoon. A special thanks to all the staff who really made our stay a memorable event.

Our stay at Pestana was memorable. The atmosphere at the lodge was relaxed and very friendly. A perfect place for the much needed getaway and we enjoyed it so much, we are planning to go back in 2008 with a few friends this time.

It was fantastic to spend three days on the island. We took an island trip to the light house - a great experience to get a 360 degree view of the island. Unfortunately the tide did not allow us to go snorkelling but overall it was a great trip. We had lunch in the village - Louis Restaurant can be recommended. R&R and 2M was also "lekker". The crab was a winner. We will be back for sure!!
