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... More

We stayed here in August 2016 for 2 nights...regrettably, not longer! Jean is an exceptional host. Staff are all friendly and helpful. On arrival we were upgraded to a lovely bungalow - rustic, spacious, airy and comfortable...bed was most comfortable. Breakfast was good, and the view made it excellent. Afternoon tea treats were delish :) Perfect place for relaxation. If... More

I booked Baia Sonambula for a holiday for my partner for his 40th birthday as I had seen excellent reviews here on Trip Advisor. I wasn't disappointed - the hotel was exactly as I had hoped it would be - it was a small, boutique hotel with beautiful rooms, excellent staff and a really small, independent feel. We stayed in...

Tofo is a gentle diving village with a host of places to eat, good dive schools and the usual, beach based, enthusiastic but not too pushy bracelet salesmen. When you have enjoyed all the village and dive schools have to offer it is wonderful to be able to retreat to the comfort, peacefulness and luxury of your own space. Lying... More
