Situated in a popular holiday village in the south of the country, north of Maputo, the resort spans a 1,000 hectares and encompasses 18km Sao Martinho Lagoon, nature reserve and turtle breeding area. This area is home to the largest of all living turtles, the leatherback. The nature reserve will be managed by Dubai World Conservation Africa and eco tourism will be of prime focus. Lending to the organisations eco tourism interests, the coral reefs will be of particular interest to wildlife and water recreational sports enthusiasts alike.

The Dubai state-owned company, with interests ranging from real estate to ports, is to invest $150 million in the creation of an international competition standard golf course, a 5 star hotel as well as 500 golf course and beach villas and condos.
