  • Unspoiled beauty

    Completely beautiful and not yet a developed area so retains its beauty. It is a perfect place to relax and not do a lot. All of the staff were really friendly and often came to check everything was ok. The room (room 5) was beautiful with fantastic views out to the island.

  • A small piece of paradise

    We ave been to Machangulo for 3 nights and absolutely fell in love with this place. The experience starts with the approx 1 hour transfer from the marina to the lodge. Sit back, relax and enjoy the beautiful nature on the way already. Upon arrival the welcome was amazing and very personal.
