On Africa’s eastern coast, Mozambique is currently one of the world’s trendiest destinations, and Sentidos Beach Retreat is the perfect home base to discover the unexplored coastline of Mozambique.
“Between lake and sea” is probably the best way to describe this boutique hotel that upholds a strong sense of social responsibility. Among mangroves inhabited by exotic birds, the deep blue ocean once travelled by sailors and pirates, this resort is a true oasis of water and blue hues that soothe the ardour of the African heat.
Amongst the fishing villages and native huts of Barra Beach, Sentidos Beach Retreat offers a year-round getaway from the crowd. The interior designer’s tasteful vision is expressed in private suites that perfectly blend a classical, elegant style with exotic touches. Extremely comfortable and in different colours according to their typology, the Sentidos Beach Retreat’s 13 suites are extremely private and include panoramic views over a skyline that transforms into a blend of amazing reds in the warm African sunset.
Separated from the main building by a wooden bridge set on stakes with little lanterns that are lit after sunset, the hotel and villas’ architecture complies with the region’s sustainability rules, matching exotic wood with local construction materials.
Rooms include all of the small luxuries that the urban and sophisticated customer cannot do without: air conditioning, a good shower, high quality bed sheets and more.
If you prefer to fill your day with higher energy activities, take a dive or snorkel in the crystal-clear waters of the Indian Ocean – where you’ll be joined by local sea life, including seahorses, stingrays, and whale sharks. As for land lovers, available activities include motorcycle riding and horseback riding along the deserted beaches.
