Dugong Beach Lodge is situated in the Vilanculos Wildlife Sanctuary. Whilst this is a mainland lodge, the isolated location and views of the sea give it an island feel.
Consisting 10 double or twin chalets and 2 Villas, both the two bedroom villas and the chalets at Dugong Beach Lodge have direct beach access. The Dugong Beach Lodge Villas have private plunge pools and all chalets have private balconies. All chalets are airconditioned and ensuite with private outdoor showers. The decks can either be used for private meals, spa treatments, or for lazing on the day beds during the warm days.
Activities that can be enjoyed at the lodge include dhow cruises, nature drive in the sanctuary conservancy, beach walks, snorkelling under the jetty, kayaking, massage treatments and sailing. Arrangements can be made for scuba diving and deep sea fishing with activity operators in Vilanculos.
What is Special?
Due to its location, the lodge has a protective seawall in front of the chalets. At high tide, the water pushes right up to the wall. Guests can climb down the steps in front of their chalet directly into the ocean. The jetty is also home to large schools of different fish species. This attracts dolphins that come hunting at night.
The nearest Airport is Vilanculos Airport. Guests are met on arrival and transferred to the beach by a representative from the Lodge. A boat transfer, duration approximately 30 – 45 minutes, is then enjoyed to the lodge with drinks served en route.
