We stayed for 5 nights in one of the seaview bungalows. The hosts were helpful with all our enquirers, including booking a car transfer from Vilanculos to Tofo and back before we even arrived. They always had time for a chat and made us feel really welcome. The bungalow garden and the grounds are landscaped to be lucious, verdant oasis...

I booked Baia Sonambula for a holiday for my partner for his 40th birthday as I had seen excellent reviews here on Trip Advisor. I wasn't disappointed - the hotel was exactly as I had hoped it would be - it was a small, boutique hotel with beautiful rooms, excellent staff and a really small, independent feel. We stayed in...

“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.”
