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.
