Whether it is to watch the Humpback Whales from your private deck, take a romantic break or that ultimate dive holiday, we ensure that your comfort is our priority. Each room conveys the subtle, yet lavish boutique appeal of French inspired guesthouses. Think fresh flowers, smooth stone floors cool underfoot, crisp white linen, cozy reading room, white washed walls, large double showers, slabs of wooden furniture and large bay windows proffering endless sea views. Lavish king-sized beds and carved wooden and rattan furniture overflowing with plump batik print cushions with large 50’s style overhead ceiling fans are the main focus of the spacious bedrooms, laced with French accents and European bathroom appointments. A stay in the Honeymoon suite or bungalow rooms extends elegance outdoors onto a private wooden deck that views the essence of Tofo Beach, from the ocean sunrise each morning to the colorful star-studded skyline each night. Lush gardens and peaceful wooden sundecks with linen awnings and a central kitchen where baked good aromas waft endlessly, round out Baia Sonambula ultimate beach haven, transplanting the revived historic property back on the Southern African Beach map, right where it should be.
