Accommodation: Humula Beach Resort & Spa, Bilene’s highest graded hotel, is a fusion of rustic tapestry and modern architectural artistry. The melodious combination of rustic, modern and classic not only brings out an amazing orchestra of beauty to the unique resort experience but breathes a fresh lease of life to the beachline of Bilene. Most of the rooms have unobstructed views of the lagoon. Rooms that do not have views to the lagoon face well manicured gardens or face the natural bush outcrops where guests can wake up to the sweet chirping sounds of the multiple bird species resident the foliage. The Resort has 59 rooms which are categorized into 7 room types. Despite classification each individual room radiates its own unique character based on its location and views from the room.

Zongoene Lodge is situated at the mouth of the Limpopo River approximately 225km north of Maputo and approximately 8km by sea from Praia de Xai Xai. The Lodge is situated on 7 ha, which is surrounded by pristine coastal forests, dunes and beaches. These forests, dunes and beaches stretch for miles on either side of the mouth of the river. The Former President of Mozambique, His Excellency Joaquim Chissano, officially opened the Lodge in October 1997.
Every effort was made to construct the Lodge from local materials using local labour. Chamfuti (Pod Mahogany) wood was processed on site to construct finishing’s and furniture, while the majority of the roofs are thatched. During the course of construction more than 300 artisans like bricklayers, carpenters, thatchers, wood carvers etc from the surrounding villages were trained.
The local fauna and flora was carefully considered when planning and laying out the Lodge. As many of the trees and palms were retained as was possible. More than 1000 palms and other indigenous plants were planted creating a wonderful and lush garden.
The Lodge skippers are trained in tag and release techniques and we encourage our guests to adopt this practice. The Lodge supplies the Oceanographic Research Institute in Durban with valuable data concerning the sea life around the Lodge
