White Pearl Resorts , PONTA MAMOLI, Mozambique
Mozambique’s style hotel, where barefoot luxury is done with designer panache; where the cool, sophisticated interiors are a pitch-perfect accompaniment to the balmy, sub-tropical island life.
Set in a gorgeous sheltered bay on Mozambique’s stunning Lagoon Coast and poised amongst the dunes on timber stilts, the 22 luxurious private pool suites each come with – you guessed it – your own
plunge pool, and feature a clean and contemporary style that perfectly matches
their coastal surroundings.
Activities are equally cool, including horse-riding, idyllic beach walks and, naturally, diving. Dining is as you please… in your room, under the stars on the beach, laid-back at the Pool or Beach Bars (the tapas at the latter comes highly recommended) or, higher on the chic scale, at the romantic White Pearl Restaurant.
Though rainy season, a visit between November and February offers the opportunity to participate in turtle nesting walks to try to spot the loggerhead and leatherback turtles that choose this stretch of coast to lay their eggs.
