I read a few very positive review of this place before we went, and therefore choose this place for our holiday. However, I should wish that I would have had a better understanding of this place before making our decision of where to stay in Vilanculos - therefore I write this review so that others will have more information than...

It is most unfortunate that your stay with us was disappointing. Our casas were deliberately constructed to be airy and rustic and as close to the traditional Mozambican casa as possible, except that they are larger of course. They offer a whole different experience than a normal hotel and many of our satisfied guests return year after year. Perhaps our...

We went back to Casa de Lua in December and again, it was everything that we have expected and more. We had stunning weather and a few wonderful fishing trips. The snorkeling was excellent. The staff at Casa de Lua, especially Johan and Thomas, makes this the place to be in Vilanculos. The service is excellent, houses clean with friendly...

We have just returned from Casa de Lua and all I can say is superb. The staff, accommodation, food was all excellent. If you are looking for a bog resort with lots of people and buffets all day then this is not your destination, but if you are looking for solitude, peace, a warm friendly and very personal stay then...

What an amazing place. This definately qualifies for our best holiday ever as the chalets/houses are right on the beach - only a few steps away.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our lodge has 7 large, rustic reed and thatch cottages built the way the Mozambicans have for ages. You can spend the day in the sun or chill out next to the pool and bar under thatch in the centre of the complex. We cater for serious fishermen: wake up at 05:00 to go fishing for sailfish or marlin, return late afternoon and have a refreshing drink in the bar while the gillies prepare your fish for the braai tonight; and sun seekers: get up at your leisure, take a walk on the beach, eat local delicacies fresh from the ocean. The best snorkeling sites are just a boat ride away and diving can be arranged at a nearby lodge. ... more   less
