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!

Restaurant & Bar:

The teams of our "Klipfontein Restaurant" and "Rio Sainas Bar" invite you to find out what happens when PASSION meets SKILL in a Mozambican kitchen as well as bar.

Expect a mix of flavors complimenting each other, plates skillfully decorated - every plate that leaves the kitchen is not only unique but also a culinary delight!

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

Weddings & Conferences:

Doxa can accommodate 50 people indoors comfortably. We are able to supply various meals and refreshments for conferencing. Electricity is available. We also have a well maintained generator for unseen power outages.

We can help you plan the beach wedding of your dreams, as well as traditional Mozambican cuisine among many other meals.

Doxa gives you the opportunity to book out the entire hotel for your special day for a minimum of 50 people for the venue and 38 guests in our accommodation.

All rooms are on suite & situated close to restaurant and bar with huge deck and swimming pool, overlooking the ocean.

  • 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

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!
