Hotel Description

It’s a long way for most of us to go for a beach holiday, but Sentidos Beach Retreat, on the coast of Mozambique, is the sort of place that’s worth making an effort for. It’d be difficult to draw up a more perfect seaside escape; with the Indian Ocean on one side and a lagoon fringed with coconut trees and mangroves on the other, Sentidos is blessed with an ideal setting.

Barra Beach is one of Mozambique’s calmer beaches, with fine conditions for watersports and good visibility for diving. Thus it’s also one of Mozambique’s most popular beaches — though you wouldn’t know it from within Sentidos. The villas feel as secluded as can be, and they’re remarkably stylish and contemporary. And while sustainable principles are painstakingly followed, the result is remarkably luxurious.

What’s there to do? The Indian Ocean is a practically negligible number of steps from your bedroom, and there‘s a pool as well as the opportunity for a massage by the beach. Tour the mangroves by kayak, learn to surf or stand-up paddle, or explore the bay, above or below the waterline. Some guests pair a stay at Sentidos with a safari in Kruger National Park, just over the South African border — and of course some come here for the pleasure of doing nothing at all.
