On the eastern coast of Africa, a mere 14 kilometres off Mozambique and part of the Bazaruto Archipelago, Kisawa sits among some of the richest and least explored subtropical ecosystems in the Indian Ocean. A charming combination of 12 one-, two- and three-bedroom bungalows, positioned within a 300 hectare stretch of pristine forest, white beach, and sand dunes, each residence has its own private waterfront, open-air deck, infinity pool, outdoor day area and kitchen.
Pairing innovation with simple traditions, Kisawa has embraced skilled local artisans from all over Benguerra Island to create bespoke sandy palleted interiors under palm thatched roofs. Featuring whitewashed walls, flowing drapes, and desert-coloured plump furnishings, with generous living rooms, king bedrooms, dressing rooms, joint bathrooms and individual powder rooms, every architectural decision has been carefully made, blending the property in with the natural landscape.
Within Kisawa, retreat to the spa and indulge in a specialist treatment, utilising rituals rooted in the natural elements. As the sun sets, head to one of the seven dining venues, sinking your toes into pearl white sands or absorbing sea views from an open deck. Taste bright and succulent Mozambique cuisine with signature dishes based on fresh homegrown flavours over an open fire.
Whether it be a yoga class at dawn on the red dune or scuba diving amongst vibrant coral, Kisawa specialises in pairing an active body with a peaceful mind. Try your hand at body boarding, and paddle boarding before diving into the ocean for some exotic snorkelling.
Led by the aim of creating a positive impact for the people of Mozambique and Beguerra Island, Kisawa merges into its natural surroundings and complements the communities that live on the island.
