Stairs lead up to a mezzanine level that has been designed with relaxation in mind and of course the view! Outside is a covered veranda, a separate seating area, small martini pool, a large infinity pool and covered sundeck with loungers.

Within the lodge grounds are secluded chill out spots from where guests can immerse themselves in their surroundings. Stylish furnishings have been designed by Elena (who is an architect) and crafted out of local materials by a talented in-house carpenter. Wi-Fi is available throughout asDunas.

8 gorgeous suites are dotted along the dunes, all offering magnificent sea views and perfect seclusion for your beach getaway.


The food here is an absolute highlight. You will enjoy scrumptious homemade treats throughout the day. All rounding off with a gourmet tasting menu for dinner. Fabio is a qualified wine connoisseur so expect to get excellent pairings and be spoiled at this lovely location.  


This lodge is an all-inclusive concept, including complimentary daily spa treatments, sunset on the on-site dunes (weather-permitting), laundry services. A highlight for us is the complimentary pasting making classes – combine your love of food with this amazing beach break.

We love owner run properties as there is always that aspect of going the extra mile for the perfect trip. asDunas is no different, with staff all being employed from the local area supporting the economy and everything fresh where possible!

Fresh fish comes from fisherman of the bay daily. Fresh vegetables, fruits and herbs are grown in the lodge garden. For those interested you can even join Elena if she’s heading into Vilanculos for her shopping trip and visit a local art gallery, Machilla Magic Arts & Craft Centre, a colourful capulana fabric shop and the old market.
