Kisawa Sanctuary, new resort at Benguerra Island in Mozambique, will be the first resort that feature many elements created using 3D printing technology. This luxury retreat, situated among picturesque sand dunes overlooking the Indian Ocean, is scheduled to open in summer 2020. While technology is clearly at the core of its construction, it will also support natural elements.
The inclusive design comes in the form of a collaboration between skilled artisans from Benguerra Island and a patented 3D printing technology that both protects the environment and leaves a light footprint on the natural landscape—the idea being a blend of modern and nature rather than an interruption.
The resort will have 12 private bungalows of one, two, or three bedrooms, set across 300-hectares of private sanctuary beach, forest and sand dunes overlooking the Indian Ocean and includes modern interior design reinvented by use of the 3D printer, which accounts for the property’s flooring, tiling, masonry and other cosmetic design elements.
There will also be a world class spa will provide specialised Chinese medicine and ayurvedic practices. Other services include a gym, tennis court, four restaurants, and a diving centre for watersports.
The one bedroom bungalows will start at 5,000 euros per night.
