Why We Love Serenity

Lovely, affordable self-catering accommodation perfectly placed on 100 m of untouched tranquil beaches.

Shallow seashores embraced by stunning sand banks, rolling dunes and lush tropical vegetation - an idyllic spot to get away from the city to relax and unwind.

The blue lagoon lends itself to water sports, so bring your boat, jet-ski, windsurfer, kite surfer, canoe, paddleboard or tubes - or swim all day in lukewarm water.

Situated close to Nhabanga, Serenity’s accommodation is neat and comfortable with air conditioners and fully equipped kitchens for a relaxing, self-catering holiday.

Self-Catering Family Resort on the Beach at Bilene

Imagine a Mozambique beach resort with private beaches, safe swimming for children, shady trees and manicured lawns. This is Serenity, an idyllic self-catering Mozambique accommodation for family holidays. Bilene Lodge accommodation at Lake Uembje. This great Mozambique resort is the perfect stop for self-drive travellers to Mozambique. Packages and specials. Find it tucked between the enormous warm saltwater lagoon and the Indian Ocean – and a choice between a six-sleeper house or one of three chalets that sleep four.

All chalets feature ensuite bedrooms, air-conditioning, fully fitted kitchens, TVs with DVD players and even a private Jacuzzi in the large house. Kids make new friends in the dazzling swimming pool and rock waterfall or in the large grassy play area.

Uembje Lagoon is wide and deep, perfect for water sports so it’s a good idea to take a boat to the lagoon mouth, explore the banks on a canoe or bring a jet ski for adrenalin fun. Quad bikes and 4×4 vehicles are the best means of transport for exploring the sandy dune environment around the lagoon. Most guests love snorkelling and watching whales and turtles. Serenity offers lessons in kiteboarding, knee-boarding, slalom and skiing!

Previously known as Sao Martinho, Bilene is a peaceful holiday town 180km north of Maputo and the beautiful and tranquil village of Nhabanga lies about 8 km away on the opposite side of the lagoon.  Serenity appeals to many visitors thanks to this remote setting accessible only by boat or 4×4 vehicle. The lodge boasts its own borehole with a water-filtration system and all units have electricity. 

Families arrive at Bilene’s unique Serenity Lodge to find everything they are looking for and more when they book the best bonding holiday in nature.  Spotlessly clean units, friendly staff and the wonderful choice of the pool or the shallow and safe, clear waters of the lagoon for all-day fun in the sun. Guests can wander down the road to eat and drink at other restaurants but still enjoy their own solitude in the stillness of Serenity, which lives up to its name. Shops sell basic supplies about 13 km away so it’s a good idea to arrive packed with all that you need. Serenity has everything a family needs for a very good special package deal and many South Africans return every year to the same chalet in this tropical paradise.
