Why we Love Ulala Beach Lodge

Ulala is an Eco Lodge located on the beautiful Murrébué Beach, in magnificent Mozambique!
With charming bungalows constructed from local materials, delicately blended with modern facilities to provide comfort with a unique style.

The ideal accommodation for tranquillity and natural beauty; the remoteness of the place is an invitation to relaxation.

Hosting a cosy restaurant/bar is on the beach, take great care at giving you the best food prepared from local fish, fruits and veggies with a mix of French flair.

Just 25 minutes north of Pemba itself you will find Ulala Eco Lodge. Ulala Lodge is a small, cosy, isolated and exclusive lodge located on one of the most beautiful beaches in Mozambique, Murrébué Beach.

The accommodation at Ulala Lodge consists of 6 rooms in beautiful and charming bungalows, all with a view of the Indian ocean, ideal for both families and couples to relax and enjoy.  Some chalets are built on stilts, two meters high and 50 meters from the beach, with shady terraces while others feature large rooms and concealed bathrooms.

All rooms are constructed from local materials – coconut palm leaves, bamboo, teak decks and red sand.

A  leader in true eco-lodges, Ulala uses solar panels and wind turbines for energy, they recycle water for septic tanks and irrigation.  They believe in doing their part with sustainability, getting nearly all vegies and fruits from the local markets and all the fish come from the fishermen on the nearby beaches.  Ulala Lodge believes in supporting the local community and many of the staff are locally sourced.

Luxury is everywhere you look from the a cosy bar and restaurant on the beach where guests can enjoy delicious seafood and other Mozambique dishes.  Internet is available in the restaurant and bar area.

Activities are aplenty at Ulala Lodge for your ideal Mozambique Holiday, from sea kayaks, beach volleyball, badminton, Pétanque, or for the more adventurous try Kite Surfing, the conditions at Murrebue are ideal for both beginners and experienced Kite surfers.

You can have a walk on the beach, stroll on the sandbanks at low tide, and of course have a swim!   Take a beautiful 1.5-hour walk around a freshwater lake just behind the dune, where you can spot Pelicans, storks and herons at sundown.

We can also help you organise day trips to Pemba to do whale watching (from July to September), snorkelling, or diving.
