Resort Description

Sava Dunes is an isolated, boutique eco-lodge that is fully off-grid and wholly spectacular.

Set upon the dunes of a remote stretch of the Barra Peninsula, the lodge and its five villas feel exclusively secluded. You'll have no more than eight neigbours at a time and the personal sevice and intimate atmosphere reflect just that.

The villas have that coveted balance of rustic and luxury and all come with a private deck, daybed and outdoor shower. Off-grid means no air conditioning, but the rooms are crafted to catch the fresh sea breezes.

Local produce and seafood is brought in from fishermen and green grocers for varied and delicious suppers overlooking the ocean. From July to September, quietly observe humpback whales as they migrate up the Mozambique coastline or dive year-round at the nearby 5* PADI dive center.

How to get there


  • The closet airport is Inhambane Airport.
  • The lodge is 25km from the arport, the last 4 km of which is a sand track and only accessible with 4×4 vehicles.
  • There are direct flights available from Maputo to Inhambane, and Vilanculos which is located 4 hours away from Inhambane.
  • A transfer from Inhambane or Vilanculos airport can be organized for an additional charge (advance notice required).
