Just north of Nacala and set within a marine reserve, Nuarro Mozambique is a new lodge with a strong focus on responsible and eco-tourism. Opened in June 2009 with just one restaurant-bar area and six chalets, it has since grown to incorporate a total of 12 chalets, a beach bar and a separate restaurant area. The design is rustic, with traditionally built structures using lots of natural materials and solar lighting, yet it is also very comfortable.
Our view of Nuarro Mozambique
Nuarro Mozambique is perfect for those who love rustic simplicity twinned with good quality. The comfortable rooms, well-built main areas and friendly service are fantastic – although the fact that everything is sourced locally means that odd pieces of material or light fittings don't match perfectly. In addition, the solar power is limiting, so Nuarro is not for those who need minibars, hairdryers and air conditioning.
It is also worth remembering that a lot of the staff come from the local community and for them the concept of a lodge is an entirely new experience. Guests may need to be patient with their attempts at English – the team are very friendly and try hard but it can often take a few minutes to make yourself understood.
