Nuarro Lodge has been handbuilt by local people from local materials to create a charming blend of comfort and authenticity. The rooms’ interiors evoke the traditional capulana worn by the women of Mozambique, and the use of warm, vibrant colours reflects the spirit of the country.
The hotel is nestled in a secluded crescent-shaped bay on Mozambique’s northern coastline. As well as the 2km lodge beach, a number of other private beaches nearby are available for romantic or family getaways. Whichever room you stay in, the shoreline will be just a short walk away, so there’s no excuse not to enjoy the pristine white sands and azure waters as often as you can.
Accommodation & Facilities
Guests can choose to stay in a chalet, a cottage (slightly smaller than the chalets) or a globetrotter room, which is the most cost-effective accommodation option. Each one of the colourfully decorated rooms comes with an en-suite bathroom, private veranda and wonderful sea view.
The open-plan and open-air restaurant at Nuarro Lodge is decorated in a welcoming traditional style, with guests able to dine at tables or in the comfortable lounge area. The culinary team here serve up delectable dishes on a constantly changing menu that makes use of the freshest seafood available.
Nuarro Lodge is a fantastic destination for divers. It’s one of the only hotels in Mozambique offering diving with rebreathers, underwater scooters and UV lights (much marine life is fluorescent, which makes night dives with these lights a truly magical experience). Whale-watching is another popular activity here, and the use of hydrophones allows for easier tracking and a chance to listen to the chorus of whalesong that fills the seas here. On dry land, guests can enjoy an authentic Mozambican massage, hop on a mountain bike to explore the Baixo do Pinda Peninsula, have a picnic on the beach or set off on a birdwatching expedition.
Children of all ages are welcome at Nuarro Lodge and many of the activities on offer here are child-friendly, including snorkelling, kayaking and rockpooling.
