Located twenty minutes south of Pemba International Airport, Malucu Marruma offers guests an exclusive stay in a stunning waterfront property. Spread over 18 hectares, the land is covered with cashew, frangipani, mango, flame, almond and boabab trees. It also has 1km of private beach. You can stay in a large bungalow that sleeps four, plus there is an additional two safari tents, two bathrooms, a kitchen, entertainment area, an Argentina parrilla (BBQ) and study/playroom/lounge room.

The space
One of the striking things about the property is the beauty of the land. Its a special place used for prayer by the local Murrebue village people, who gave it the name “Malucu Marruma” in their native Macua dialect from the sound (Marruma) the waves make against the rocks (Malucu) at high tide. During your stay you will have complete use of the whole property which includes access to our chicken and goat farm, on-site fruit and vegetable gardens, or at any time one of our local fishmongers can come by with the daily catch of fresh fish, prawn, lobster or mud crab.

Everything you need can be arranged by our extremely talented property manager (and your host) Pedro, who manages a team of twenty gardeners, animal keepers, carpenters, domestic workers and security guards who will be there all the time, whenever you need them. Pedro is also available 24/7.

Your accommodation will consist of a small collection of thatch roof buildings, all built by hand by our on-site team. The master bungalow has two bedrooms with two king size beds, a bathroom and a desk area. A stone's throw away you will find a large kitchen which opens up to the entertainment area with dining for twelve, the Argentine parrilla (BBQ) and a standalone bathroom. There is also 'coma coma', an indoor dining table for eight with a lounge, which is used during rain or to avoid mosquitoes. The two safari tents are available for large groups, both with king size beds, and these can be used for an additional USD $20 / night.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner can be pre-organized (extra cost) with at least 1 day in advance, please connect with me on email or Pedro on site. Various options available. We can connect you to car-hire as well.

Pemba and it's surroundings is full of activities such as Kite Surfing, diving, snorkeling, endless food options and beautiful beaches to explore and markets/villages to stroll though - don't hesitate to ask us where/what to do.

Where you’ll be

Murrebue, Cabo Delgado Province, Mozambique

Pemba city has a buzz to it while still remaining your typical African chilled coastal hangout, and you'll find the locals here are very relaxed - they say its because they are so content being able to live off whatever the sea provides. Drive along the coast and you will watch fisherman bargaining for their catch of the day (4 kilo lobster or 2 kilo mud-crab?) There is a very big and well equipped supermarket (Shopright) in the heart of the city as well as many little hidden gems for a perfect meal. Stroll through Natiti market for the freshest veggies - lots going on! For cooked meals/coffee/a drink, try...

Russels (in Pemba) is your best Friday night hangout (but open every day) for beer and casual pub food. Its been here for 30 years, and its the place to go to meet people.

Il Pirata (a short drive away up Murrebue beach) is your Sunday afternoon chill day and is very popular with kite surfers. Get your pizza hit (its properly made by Italians, the dough is exceptional - best pizza in Africa!), have a chilled drink and watch the swell come in... OR get your feet wet and in there and enjoy the wind with a good kite surf session.

The Liberty Cafe (located on Wimbi Beach in Pemba) - recently opened. Cape Town meets Pemba style cafe, beautifully decorated, great crafted coffee with a quality bakery and a feel-good story... because the Liberty Project is an NGO for women in need in Moz.

Dolphin (also on Wimbi beach in Pemba) is where you can eat authentic sea food while watching the locals enjoy the sunny days and rolling waves.

Finally if you want to experience true Pemba street food, then "the local chicken place" (ask Pedro for location in Pemba, opposite airport) is the BEST chicken in town. Think small tables, plastic chairs, always under construction, serving grilled chicken and fries accompanied by the coldest 2M (beer) in town. Sometimes simplicity beats them all.
