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.

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,...

We enjoyed our stay here so much! Jean and Stefani were so great. The rest of the staff were also amazing. With the African staff (Jean is Italian and Stefani is Swiss) there was a bit of a language barrier (they spoke local languages and Portuguese, but mostly they were super awesome.

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...

“It is worth the extra money to stay in Bungalow #4!”
ymalcolm, 29 Mar 2017 | Read review
“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.”
