White Pearl Resort


The pearl of the Indian Ocean

Nestled in a cool, sheltered bay on Mozambique’s southern coast, between capital Maputo and the South African border, White Pearl Resort boasts sublime Indian Ocean frontage.

Poised amongst the dunes on timber stilts, the 22 luxurious suites have been sensitively designed to take advantage of their beautiful natural setting, while protecting the fragile ecosystems beneath them. Cool, clean lines, contemporary furniture and a palette inspired by the surrounding coastal landscape, make for a getaway out of this world.

Take a dip in your own plunge pool, relax on the spacious deck, cool off in a refreshing outdoor shower or retreat to the intimacy of your air-conditioned bedroom surrounded by nature. Experience the taste of Mozambique through authentic cuisine with a signature White Pearl touch. Your timeless, breezy retreat maximises the breathtaking views and creates private outdoor spaces for you to just be.

Community & Culture

Growing Pearls is a community initiative created by White Pearl Resorts with the purpose of giving back to the local community and empowering its people. Guests can become involved and share in the resort’s vision of building a stronger community. This is an activity done on a request basis only and must be pre-arranged. Take a tour of the local villages to not only experience the different cultures, but also see current and future projects of Growing Pearls. Help by donating funds of which 100% will go directly towards their projects, or physically take part in the project activities. Previous projects have included installing a community waste management system, various school initiatives and a community water conservation project. The resort also aims to support local small businesses and entrepreneurs as much as possible, from a local fish and ice suppliers to a maintenance garden and landscaping service, and the local chilli farm.


In collaboration with PPMR and Peace Parks Foundation's Turtle Nesting Monitors, the resort collects an 'eco charge' from every guest stay. The tax reflects the seriousness of their efforts towards preservation of conservation and proceeds are donated to conservation, turtle research and other eco-initiatives. Divers are strongly encouraged to become true ambassadors of the underwater world displaying respect and harmony in a fragile environment that visitors are most privileged to visit. The resort's most successful initiative and long-term project is the turtle nesting monitor project.


White Pearl endeavours to gradually introduce eco-friendly practices throughout the resort by “going green” over a time in consideration of the atmosphere and the environment. So far the resort has removed all single use plastic, organises a SOS (Save our Seas) Walk to clean any debris that washes up on the beach from the sea and grows majority of its fresh produce in an onsite vegetable garden.
