Marlin Lodge, Bazaruto Archipelago, Mozambique

African island refuge…
…where balmy, tropical weather relaxes you, warm, azure waters refresh you and peaceful tranquillity renews you.

Marlin Lodge is situated on the south western shore of Benguerua Island, second largest of the four main islands that form the Bazaruto Archipelago off the Mozambican coast.
Hand built with Mozambican hardwood, reed-clad brick walls and thatched ‘jecca’ roofs to create a lodge that sits in perfect harmony with its pristine natural surroundings.

The natural plant life is carefully preserved by elevated wooden walkways that connect the 14 seascape Luxury Beach Chalets and three Executive Beach Suites to the main areas.

Attention to detail, soft, inviting furnishings and colours that reflect the lush island greenery and sparkling blue ocean, complete the picture. Guests can enjoy spacious accommodation, delectable food, rejuvenating wellness treatments and exhilarating explorations on land or under water.

At Marlin Lodge you are free to surrender to a nonchalant way of life. This is where time slows down and lasting memories of unhurried bliss are made. Rejuvenate and reawaken body and soul, and indulge in mighty Africa’s most beautiful island refuge!
