The place for a new Hotel experience in Southern Mozambique! We are a small dedicated company working on this project since 2011. We offer up-market accommodation, fine dining, amazing diving, fantastic horse riding and more in the Inhambane Province, Mozambique. We aim to satisfy all our clients in any way possible! We hope you will come for a visit and thoroughly enjoy your stay with us!


DOXA Beach Hotel can easily sleep 28 people in 14 comfortable and spacious rooms - with the option of having a twin or double bed or even fitting a third bed in for a child.

All rooms have en-suite bathrooms including a separate toilet, washbasin and shower (and/or bath depending on the booking). The beds, mattresses as well as mosquito nets have been chosen for maximum comfort and the majority of the rooms (and beds!) are facing the ocean offering stunning views (sunrise and even whale watching opportunities).

To deal with Mozambique's subtropical climate we have chosen big sliding doors with fly-nets for better airing as well as fitted electric fans.

In order to fit in with the natural dune vegetation all colours were carefully selected ranging from creamy sandy - beige inside to light olive greens on the outside.

For more privacy and exclusiveness the accommodation is split up into two complexes embracing the rest of the hotel: The hotel-style double-story complex (2 x 4 rooms) with a solid concrete roof and private verandas or balconies in the North and two separate houses (3 rooms each) with verandas or garden and local grass roofs to the South.

Our Klipfontein Restaurant as well as Rio Sainas Bar, DOXA Dive School and the 15m x 5m x 4m deep pool with seaview are only steps away from either side of the accommodation making sure that you are well looked after. Complimentary tea and coffee facilities as well as icy cold water can be found in all of our rooms.

If there is anything else we can do for you - never hesitate to contact one of our friendly and helpful staff!

Cocktails so fresh and full of flavor you won't believe!

Come and indulge yourself in a variety of international and local cuisine cooked to perfection and rounded off with your choice of beverage from our well stocked bar.


Two chefs who don't seize to surprise and excel!

We Offer:

  • a breakfast buffet catering for every need from cold to hot and sweet to savory as well as customized breakfasts a la carte.
  • a la carte MENU with a range of high quality meats from our own butchery in Johannesburg to delicious vegetarian dishes - and of course to chefs' specialty: Fresh Fish and Seafood - a MUST in Mozambique!


Trained bar staff always have cold beer at hand, but can also spoil the ladies (and gents of course) with tasty cocktails and assorted wines. For the kids (and adults) we offer juices and smoothies full of different flavours.

DSTv for great social (and slightly competitive) times is guaranteed - don't miss out on news, sports and movies while you are on holiday! We are Rugby friendly

Activities to do from Doxa Beach Hotel:

  • Guided Rock Pool tours with some of the most amazing Snorkeling in Mozambique
  • Scuba Diving
  • Sporty activities such as swimming and horse riding
  • Dhow tours to Pansy Island and Survivor Island
  • Whale Watching in season (July to October)
  • Take part in one of our monthly Beach Clean-ups (ACCM)
  • Day tours to Inhambane & Tofo
  • Sun bathing, relaxing and having a fantastic holiday to remember!!!


Huge schools of pelagic fish, intact subtropical rocky reef systems which are home to a great variety of species of flora and fauna ranging from very small to VERY BIG - this awaits you when you leave the safety of the beach and join us for some real adventure diving!

Mantas, Humpbacks, Sharks, Whale Sharks, Turtles, Stingrays, NUDIS,

It's the OCEAN, we never know what we gonna get!

Zavora's reefs offer some amazing diving as well as wildlife encounter opportunities, locally based researchers have recently confirmed that there are Manta accumulation areas to the North as well as Whale Shark accumulation areas to the South of Zavora - all within our diving and Ocean Safari range!
MANTAS: Even though the number of Manta sightings seems to have declined in recent years, probably mainly due to anthropologic impacts (such as netting), we still get to enjoy a lot of bottom time with individuals of Manta birostris and Manta alfredi on both our shallow as well as deep offshore reefs! The accumulation of Mantas appears to be seasonal with the winter months of July and August being a busy time as colder waters and plankton seem to draw the animals into the bay. We have observed behaviours ranging from feeding, cleaning, breeching to mating behaviour.

There is nothing more amazing and touching than being close to one (or even two, three, up to twenty!!!) of these gentle creatures appearing to be flying effortlessly through the water.

Horse Riding:

Endless white beaches, indigenous forests, local villages, turquoise - blue lakes, the Earth trembling, the sound of hoofs pounding on the ground, breathing, FREEDOM, THRILL and HAPPINESS!

We can make it happen! Mozriders offer various well-selected routes to take on for any level of experience! In the centre of attention stand our six well-trained horses that will carry you safely through our stunning surroundings.

  • You have never sat on a horse before, but would like to try it now (or always wanted to try)? No problem - our trained staff will teach you all you need to know for your first-timer and we take you nice and easy.
  • Haven't been in the saddle for a while? Don't worry - we will refresh your skills, start slow and take it from there, depending on your comfort and confidence.
  • Horse expert? Join us for an incredible canter on the beach, swimming in one of the various lakes or even the ocean.

Our policy is safety first - for both horses and riders that's why:

  • we take small groups (max 5) with riders of similar experience levels
  • we only go as fast as the most inexperienced person feels comfortable with!

Listed in alphabetical order

Backpackers Lodge:

Those who are on a tight budget should keep a lookout for this category icon. This type of establishment offers dormitory (shared) bedroom accommodation with other "Backpackers" generally using either single beds or bunk beds with a communal kitchen and shared ablutions.

Bar On-Site:

Meaning the venue has its own bar on-site with staff serving alcohol/non-alcohol beverages and perhaps "pub-grub" included. They may offer satellite TV for bar patrons to follow the latest sporting fixtures live and may also host live music on certain days / evenings.

Bed & Breakfast:

If an establishment has this icon, this means they either include breakfast in their rates or offer the opportunity for you to choose to include breakfast during your stay which is usually served to guests in an on-site breakfast room dinette or restaurant. Some B&B's offer basic / light (continental) breakfasts, Full English breakfasts or buffet style breakfast options.

Campsite / Glamping:

Either they offer camping grounds for you to pitch your own tent if on a tight budget and / or they have their own pre-setup tents for you to camp in, some offering private facilities (aka "Glamping") within their tents such as beds, a fridge, sofa and bathroom.

They may have basic facilities for these conditions or advanced. Kindly enquire with them directly for more information and/or specific requirements you may need.

Eco Lodges:

These types of lodges range from rustic bush and beach to luxury accommodation. Not only does this movement protect the environment, but it also helps support local families.

This means the associated business offers professional paid-for deep sea fishing charters / outings and excursions for those fishing enthusiasts (and for newbies). They generally have a fully equipped fishing boat and all the fishing gear ready for clients to bait up and cast a line. Their expertize, knowledge and experience will reward you with some of the best fishing spots for an action packed deep sea fishing experience.

Full Board Accommodation:

Full Board means breakfast, lunch and dinner (also known as "All Inclusive"). If a venue is listed under this category, then they either offer guests the choice of a full board meal plan during their stay or their rates by default include full board meals. a lot of these establishments will have private personal chefs serving guests top class cuisine.

Group Accommodation:

Because this is a popular search and request amongst many, we have created this specific category for exactly that - group accommodation which is very much the same as our Holiday Homes category. These are establishments that can cater and accommodate for large groups of 8 people and up in the same house / unit offering most self catering facilities as if you are "home away from home".

Guest House:

Similar to a typical B&B, a Guest House is usually a private house offering very few accommodation units all within the main building structure (or some seperately). Some serve home cooked meals within their in-house dining room specially catered to seat all their guests and offer a lounge area where fellow travellers can interact, socialize and share stories.

Holiday Home:

This type of accommodation is usually ideal for large groups of people going on holiday being a "home away from home" with numerous bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen for your self catering needs, lounge, toilets, braai/BBQ area, some with a swimming pool and some offering exclusive privacy.

Honeymoon / Romantic Accommodation:

Very self-explanatory. A venue will be listed under this category if they offer a specific luxury, private honeymoon suite or because our admin has "hand-picked" the establishment to be perfect for such an occasion based on their location and facilities offered. However, you are the best judge when it comes to planning that special getaway with your loved one anyway. Pssst ... and it doesn't have to be expensive either to enjoy, right?!


A hotel is generally a large premises that can accommodate a large amount of guests in many adjacent rooms grading from standard 2 sleeper units to "executive" luxury suites offering more in-room space and facilities. They generally have a restaurant and bar on-site for all day meals and drinks (quite often offered on a buffet dining basis). Other on-site facilities may include a swimming pool, gym, spa, in/outdoor entertainment area for kids, a conference / wedding room for meetings / ceremonies and a small shop.

Restaurant / Personal Chef(s) On-Site:

This indicates that the establishment has a small / large restaurant on-site for their guests (they may also accept walk-ins for non-guests) or they have on-board catering staff serving guests in their own private space or in a designated dining area.

Self Catering:

This type of establishment offers guests facilities required to cater / cook on their own terms whether it be within a holiday home for example or on communal grounds.


This means the establishment has spa facilities and services offered to guests who are looking for personal treatments during their vacation.
