Guludo Beach Lodge

Simple, rustic beauty off the beaten track

Guludo Beach Lodge

Get back to basics at Galudo Lodge. It’s rustic and simple but has all the touches you need to feel pampered and comfortable. We love the lodge’s mantra about their swahili-inspired beach huts: “Our holiday accommodation is beautifully simple, providing everything you need and nothing you don’t.” The lodge has won numerous awards, including the Conde Nast Traveller Best Small Hotel Award in 2012 and the Tourism for Tomorrow Award in 2011, for their socially conscious community initiatives.

At the lodge

The hotel

The main lodge area is relaxed, unpretentious and has a beach bar atmosphere. You’ll find curved sunken couches and tables in the restaurant area, under the impressive pitched roof. It’s lovely in the evening when all the lanterns are on. The cuisine is exceptional and if you have any dietary requirements they will be catered for with respect and creativity. The oval bar faces out towards the beach, where cocktails are prepared throughout the day—just place your order.

The rooms

We love the guest villa description on the lodge’s website: “Our holiday accommodation is beautifully simple, providing everything you need and nothing you don’t.” It’s exactly the way it is. Choose between the clay and thatch beach villas or private family villa which joins two villas with a central courtyard. There are french doors and windows so you can practice throwing them open to your incredible sea vista over and over agin. We don’t think you can ever tire of that view! Each villa has alfresco en-suite bathrooms with outdoor shower, a double bed, ingenious cupboards and mosquito nets. Sunloungers, hammocks and day beds can be found on your shady terrace .

Experiences

Embark on a sunset sail on a dhow, go fishing, practice your archery on the beach, play a football game in the village, sign up for a traditional pottery class, learn how to weave palm fronds, get your hair braided or go snorkelling and SUPing. There are a variety of activities on offer that will give you a more holistic experience of Mozambique. Choose what suits you best and go forth and explore!
