FLAMINGO BAY WATER LODGE - INHAMBANE - MOZAMBIQUE
Flamingo Bay Water Lodge is located in the beautiful tropical tidal estuary along the Inhambane coast. This uniquely designed resort lies 485km north of Maputo, the capital of Mozambique. It has become synonymous with honeymooners and couples looking for an eco-chic retreat and the perfect getaway. Twenty beautifully appointed chalets on stilts extend into the water overlook the warm Indian Ocean. Memories of the sunsets from your private deck will linger for a long time after you leave.
This eco-paradise derives its name from the flocks of flamingos that inhabit the lagoon surrounding the lodge. These majestic birds are often seen from the decks as are numerous other species of Mozambique Birds. Even the rare dugong can be spotted in the area. Picture a beautiful azure lagoon, surrounded by indigenous coastal vegetation and palms, and fringed by the white beaches of the Bara Peninsula. Safe bathing all year round in water that in the mid-twenties most of the time. That is Flamingo Bay Water Lodge.
Daily flights and easy aces to Inhambane from Johannesburg International Airport make getting to Flamingo Bay really easy. A full meet and greet plus transfer service to the lodge takes care of all the rest! For people wanting to self-drive – you can get there in a day from Johannesburg.
Twenty luxury water chalets as well as a single quintessential Mozambique honeymoon suite make up the lodge. Each air conditioned unit has spectacular full sea views and sliding doors leading onto a balcony with comfy sun loungers and chairs. The units face west – so perfect sunsets are guaranteed. The rooms are simple but elegantly furnished with hand crafted hardwood furniture, and equipped with an en-suite bathroom with indoor and outdoor shower. As there are no kids under the age of twelve permitted you won’t be bothered by the youngsters like in other resorts.
Extended wooden walkways conveniently separate the chalets ensuring the utmost privacy. It’s some of the best Mozambique Beach Accommodation along this stretch of coast, and as a result is very popular.
The main lodge building at Flamingo Bay is relaxed and overlooks the main pool and deck. The restaurant serves great meals with the emphasis on the freshest of seafood of every description. Meals are taken around the pool and the pool bar serves a great range of cocktails and has a superb wine list.
Guests often just relax in their water chalets and swim directly in the lagoon from their deck. It’s the perfect place to chill out, mix a drink from your mini bar and soak up the sun.
A well-equipped African Spa offers signature treatments to pamper guests as part of their stay.
For those people feeling a little more energetic there are a huge range of activities to keep you busy. Not called the Manta Coast for nothing scuba diving here is world class. Giant manta rays and whale sharks are common and a real highlight for both divers and snorkeler’s. A Padi dive center at neighboring Bara Resorts (a sister lodge) will take good care of you.
Other activities on offer include quad biking, boat trips, dhow cruises, fishing, horse riding, dolphin encounters, cultural tours, and Pansy Island dhow trips.
