Why we love Umbila
Key Features
When to Visit
Umbila Tours

Umbila is a small lodge sitting on a dune overlooking the spectacular Praia Da Barra in the warm waters of the Mozambican Indian Ocean. The property offers the highest standards of comfort and style, with five large sea-facing suites set within a substantial walled garden. Aiming to be a high-end option in the Barra/ Tofo area, Umbila has top-quality fittings, such as beds, bedding, toilets, showers, and very large rooms, for your comfort during your stay.

“A charming boutique guesthouse set in a beautiful location in Barra, with a stunning ocean view (And
the whales that come so close in whale season). An owner-managed property that takes excellent care of
their guests, Umbila feels like a home away from home. The rooms are comfortable, with beautiful views
of the ocean. Let’s not forget the spectacular sunset deck…”

Last visited by Mike, managing director, in Dec 2019


Umbila offers a unique blend of complete privacy for guests using their lovely, heated pool which becomes very handy over the winter season and extensive boardwalk decking.


It is located on a high-raised decking area atop the water tower, providing 360-degree views of Barra and a chance to share an intimate dining experience under the untampered clear stars.

The food

The seafood here is spectacular and is locally produced which lets you enjoy the freshness in its naturally organic state. In addition, there is a range of fruit and veg from its local partners and of course, their own kitchen garden adding an extra touch to the already mouth-watering dishes.
