Travessia is an beautiful Eco Beach Lodge that is all about understated barefoot-luxury. Located one and a half hours drive from the airport of Inhambane, and just six kilometre of sand track away from the main road, the lodge is accessible enough for a long weekend break and yet remotely enough still to give you an instant cast-away feeling. The lodge is built among the dunes along the beach, nestled between bush and palm trees and with carefully chosen spots to maximize privacy and seaviews whilst maintaining proximity of the rooms to the lounge, restaurant and the beach. The buildings are constructed on elevated wooden decks with timber and roll-up canvas walls under a roof thatched with local makuti. Wooden walkways lead from the rooms to the lodges reception area and restaurant, with a lounge, bar and spacious deck, overlooking the palm grove and the sea. The lodge is entirely solar powered ensuring a light environmental footprint.
All rooms at Travessia Lodge are exclusive and special; Casa de Mel is the most secluded of all our rooms, approximately 150m away from the restaurant and lounge. It is a double room with king size or twin beds, mosquito nets, ensuite bathroom with separate toilet and outdoor shower, large deck with hammock and sea views. The room can accommodate one extra bed for an accompanying child. Casa Tartaruga is our family room that can accommodate four people in either two king size or twin beds. The room is open plan with a canvas screen between the beds as a visual seperation, but otherwise open. It is therefore ideal for a family with children or a group of four really good friends who dont mind sleeping dorm-style. It is equipped with mosquito nets, ensuite bathroom facilities with separate toilet and outdoor shower, large deck with hammock and 180 degree sea views. A fifth bed could be accommodated for a family of five. Casa Baleia is a double room with king size or twin beds, mosquito nets, ensuite bathroom with separate toilet and outdoor shower, large deck with hammock and sea views. The room is approximately 80m from the main house and restaurant. Casa Madeira is our friendly wooden house, perched on top of a dune with 360° views. It comes with queen size bed, mosquito net, ensuite bathroom with separate toilet and shower, as well as a wooden deck with hammock and sea views. Casa Mavimbi is a double room with king size or twin beds, mosquito nets, ensuite bathroom with shower and separate toilet and outdoor shower, large deck with hammock and sea views. The room is just a short walk away from the pool deck and has its private walkway from the deck into the palmgrove to the beach.
