Relatively unknown because it is one of Africa’s best-kept secrets, the country of Mozambique in southern Africa is a stunning destination, offering numerous exquisite beaches and azure seas. Baroque Travel visits one of the newest resorts to open there, the beautiful Sentidos Beach Resort
Mozambique is a stunning beach resort destination, with friendly people, magnificent terrain and some of the best seafood you’ll ever have the fortune of tasting, combined with Portuguese-inspired flavors to add another mouthwatering edge. This unexplored little country is quite unique and distinctly African, offering a fulfilling resort experience that includes so much more than lazing in the sun.
Located on the long white sand Barra Beach in Inhambane in Mozambique, Sentidos Beach Resort offers an idyllic vacation in one of the foremost dive spots in the world. But that’s not all. It is a stunning eco-friendly resort set on miles of white sand beach with nothing but the ocean in sight. A little slice of heaven that is completely unspoilt and untouched, just waiting to be discovered.
More like a boutique hotel than a resort, Sentidos offers elegant accommodation that is literally steps from Totos Beach. Time spent here is more than just lapping up the luxury; it’s about enjoying tranquility, elegance and refinement, discovering the local culture and embarking on ocean adventures.
A boutique property with just 12 villas, Sentidos is the sort of place that you come back to after embarking on numerous adventures, from ocean diving with humpback whales to snorkeling with whale sharks and manta rays, sailing in an ancient dhow at sunset or kayaking amongst the mangroves. A vacation on this East African coastline is an immersive experience, offering the opportunity to learn all about the local community, for which the resort is currently building classrooms.
Accommodation is in extremely private villas with panoramic views. The villas are separated from the main building by a wooden bridge and they include every possible luxury from air-conditioning to a terrace with stunning outdoor showers and comfortable king-size beds.
This intimate resort’s main living area is a wooden structure, quite Balinese in design, with ceilings lined with bamboo and interiors covered with Indonesian wood.
A vacation here involves refreshing coconut drinks, picnics under coconut trees, pampering massages and numerous fun activities that all involve communing with nature. A highlight is a guided snorkeling experience, observing magical underwater life and viewing different species such as dolphins, turtles and manta rays in their natural habitat.
