Located on Benguerra Island in Mozambique, Kisawa Sanctuary will feature 12 one-, two-, and three-bedroom bungalows set across the island’s beach, forest, and sand dunes.

In order to protect the island’s delicate ecosystem, the resort’s design is meant to blend rather than interrupt. Chief among these design elements is the fact that the resort will be 3D printed from local sand and seawater using patented technology designed specifically for this project. Kisawa Resort will work in partnership with the Bazaruto Center for Scientific Studies, its non-profit sister project, to maintain balance and harmony throughout all of the resorts interactions with the environment.


Kisawa bungalows and swimming pool


Each 2,475-sf bungalow is set within one acre of private accommodation and includes a personal beachfront, swimming pool, open deck space, shaded day area, outdoor kitchen, massage hut, and personal e-bikes and mini mokes. The bungalows will be decorated and furnished with pieces from local artisans from Mozambique.

Four restaurants, two bars, and myriad on-location culinary experiences will cater to guests 24/7 hospitality needs. A stand alone spa, inspired by nearby Mozambican dwellings, will specialize in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurvedic offerings. It will offer a range of treatments to guests including massages and multi-day detox retreats. A gym, yoga and meditation pavilion, tennis court, and water sports facility are also located on the property.

Kisawa Resort is on track to open next year.
