About Us

Montanha Valley Lodge is nestled amongst a valley of palm trees between dunes which line the turquoise patterned waters of the warm Indian Ocean in the trendy Mozambique resort destination of Barra which is situated in Inhambane, Mozambique.  Sea views are but a short walk over the dune to the main beach of Praia da Barra, with the most beautiful views.

Self-catering accommodation is offered in timber wood casitas with grass roofs around the relaxing pool area consisting of an eight-sleeper casita, three six-sleeper casitas and a four-sleeper casita.  The units do not have air-conditioning so guests are required to bring their own fans.

Local vendors visit the lodge daily with a supply of produce and curios on offer, ranging from fresh prawns, crayfish, fish, and langoustine, as well as freshly baked local bread, rolls and seasonal fruits and vegetables, sarongs, and artwork.

There are a variety of nearby activities for guests to choose from.
