Stayed here on our honeymoon last year, finally remembered to write a review. Lovely location, really helpful staff. Couldn't ask for better. Delicious breakfast and the couple who run it are incredibly helpful. Go there and spend a week by the beach - you won't regret it.

This place is right on the beach and is very tastefully decorated. There are not many rooms so it keeps it much more relaxing and uncrowded. All the staff are exceptionally friendly and as all the others agree the breakfast is amazing! Fresh home made jams, bread and treats. They also serve a snack after lunch time and fresh juice....

My friend and I were staying in one of the two back rooms which have no view of the sea. However, this did not really matter as there is a deck with a fabulous view of the beach and ocean where you eat breakfast in the morning and can relax on very comfortable loungers all day. We felt very safe...

In one sentence: we loved our stay at Baia Sonambula! Before our arrival, I had been in frequent touch with the management, each time receiving a friendly and welcoming email. The guesthouse is beautifully designed with attention to detail in its decoration and styleful architecture. The mouth-watering home-made breakfast was fresh and truly delicious with an extensive selection! The staff...

This was the nicest place I have ever stayed! I wish I could take my room here and bring it to every other destination I ever travel to. We stayed in the new bungalow (#4) that featured a private balcony, outdoor shower, plunge pool, and the ability to open the doors all the way so that every night we slept...

Hi Ymalcolm, thank you very much for your AMAZING review. I just read it out to our Staff and we are both blown away by your words. It was nice to read a long and detail description of so many different aspects that makes up our Guesthouse. As I said to my Staff, reviews such as this, can't be taken...

I stayed four nights at the hottest time of the year - January - in one of the cheaper back rooms with no sea view and the room was very hot despite the fans. But that is my only criticism. The staff are amazing; really nice people who genuinely want you to be happy and who are helpful without being...

I'm not sure I could have had a better experience anywhere in the world. Baia was almost magical for me. I wanted a quiet, serene environment to do absolutely nothing..or absolutely anything. I stayed in bungalow 1 - beautiful in every way. The bed was really comfortable and the casa / deck provided the perfect balance of sophistication and simplicity....

Loved the personal touch, with host and staff going the extra mile for us. Property is located just off the beach with lovely views across the bay. With everything within 5min walking distance the location could not be better. Breakfast alone is worth the travel, never mind the snacks provided throughout the day. We didn't have any issues with mosquitoes...

Baia Sonambula is so great! Its location is excellent - just off the beach (1 minute walk) with wonderful views. We could lie in bed and look at the water. Or sit on our porch and look at the water. Or sit in the little private garden and look at the water. The room is spacious and very comfortable. The...

Charming place with everything being thought of and catered for (e.g. Not having to take a room key to the beach). Breakfast was delicious. Lovely muffins and treats available during tea time. friendly attentive staff. Close proximity to the beach - less than a minutes walk. Thoroughly enjoyed my time there. Will definitely be back soon!

“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.”
