Tofo, Mozambique
Reviewed 5 February 2017

I stayed four nights at the hottest time of the year - January - in one of the cheaper back rooms with no sea view and the room was very hot despite the fans. But that is my only criticism. The staff are amazing; really nice people who genuinely want you to be happy and who are helpful without being...

I'm not sure I could have had a better experience anywhere in the world. Baia was almost magical for me. I wanted a quiet, serene environment to do absolutely nothing..or absolutely anything. I stayed in bungalow 1 - beautiful in every way. The bed was really comfortable and the casa / deck provided the perfect balance of sophistication and simplicity....

Loved the personal touch, with host and staff going the extra mile for us. Property is located just off the beach with lovely views across the bay. With everything within 5min walking distance the location could not be better. Breakfast alone is worth the travel, never mind the snacks provided throughout the day. We didn't have any issues with mosquitoes...

Baia Sonambula is so great! Its location is excellent - just off the beach (1 minute walk) with wonderful views. We could lie in bed and look at the water. Or sit on our porch and look at the water. Or sit in the little private garden and look at the water. The room is spacious and very comfortable. The...

Charming place with everything being thought of and catered for (e.g. Not having to take a room key to the beach). Breakfast was delicious. Lovely muffins and treats available during tea time. friendly attentive staff. Close proximity to the beach - less than a minutes walk. Thoroughly enjoyed my time there. Will definitely be back soon!

My husband and I went for our honeymoon. The beach was incredible and Baia Sonambula was the best place to stay in Tofo. I can not recommend this enough. It truly was paradise. The hosts, Steffi and Jean were very welcoming and helpful. Baia Sonambula is a little hideaway which is only a minute from the beach. There are only...

This is certainly the best option in Tofo! Staff is friendly yet you don't feel overwhelmed... we stayed at bungalow 3 and it was just perfect - bed, shower, the view... true paradise! As an opportunity for improvement I would suggest starting the breakfast a little earlier at 6am since some dive centers (like Tofo Scuba, 15min walk away) ask...

I didn't know what to expect and than once we walked in it felt like we fall in to heaven on earth. All 3 partners are very kind and friendly. It's worth the money for every penny. Very peaceful and relaxing. We will comeback America first chance.

Combine the stunning style of the bungalows , the cool vibe ,the team of local staff working there to make the mornings special , add the beautiful views across the bay and it all combines to make a thoroughly relaxing and at the same time engaging experience....

Went for a weekend holiday from a business trip to Maputo, so needed logistics to work fairly smoothly. Booking, airport transfers and arrival were all timely and easy to arrange. Rooms are spacious and well-appointed, providing lots to see for beach house design enthusiasts. Two steps from the beach, it was easy to get to all surf and dive shops,...

“II've rated the rooms as excellent because I've seen the sea view rooms but I'd only give a 'good' to the room I was in.”

“I stayed in sea view bungalow 4 - a dull name of a honey moon suite out of this world. Normal price $250, but I got it at a discount as it was last minute. not sure it would be worth this kind of money - a fortune in Moz - but it certainly was wonderfully luxurious and beautiful.”

“2 and 3 are the best. 1 is also one of the ocean view (1-3) but it was close to some ongoing construction. 4-6 are the inside, no veranda.”
