Outdoor Swimming pool, Restaurant, Free parking, Free WiFi Internet, 12 rooms - Resort



“Between lake and sea”, among mangroves inhabited by exotic birds and the deep blue ocean once travelled by sailors and pirates, this retreat is a true oasis of water and blue hues that soothe the ardour of the African heat. Surrounded by an exuberant landscape, this retreat on the Mozambican coastline was designed for those who seek authenticity and tranquillity, as well as the pleasure of genuine experiences.
Sentidos Beach Retreat is located at Barra Beach, Inhambane, in Mozambique. Intimate and informal, refined in the details and simplicity of an atmosphere in harmony with the surrounding nature, everything in this boutique address conjures tranquillity, a surrender to time and the elements and to a dolce far niente lulled by the sound of waves gently lapping against the sand. Inspired by the British colonial style, 12 villas with an attentive, customized service and local cuisine, this boutique hotel will make your visit memorable. Shaped as a large S, for Senses, spread across the sand between the Indian Ocean and a lagoon surrounded by coconut trees and mangroves, the resort’s architecture and outdoors are reminiscent of a natural, fluid and sensual organic matter enhanced by the scent of the exotic wood used in the lavish interiors.

A building made of wood and sloped ceilings which, at the heart of the resort, joins all of the hotel’s public areas. Featuring ceilings lined with bamboo and interiors covered with Indonesian wood, the building includes a reception, a gift shop, a beach restaurant with delicious regional and fusion cuisine, particularly fish, a black and white bar with a telescope and antique furniture where guests can freshen up after lying in the hot blazing sun, as well as a reading and play room for rainy afternoons. The swimming pool lined with the restaurant and facing the Indic turns this space into one of the properties’ landmark.
Inspired by the colonial spirit, the hotel’s interiors include Mozambican furniture and handicrafts as well as many copper objects, rugs in warm colours and furniture displaying the discreet charm of a bygone era.

The Villas
The villas were designed to provide the utmost privacy and discretion, decorated with fabrics and colours in harmony with the natural environment 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 12 villas 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. Aside from a private pool, rooms include state-of-the-art comforts: luxurious mattresses, high quality bed sheets, air conditioning and ceiling fans, bathrooms with first class amenities by Africology, bathtub and or shower and much more.
