Sustainable tourism is the new buzzword – one that is religiously being followed by hospitality brands across the globe. However, taking it to a whole new level is the Kisawa Sanctuary on Benguerra Island, Mozambique which is all set to debut as the world’s first 3-D printed luxury resort! Yes, that’s right!
Boasting a total of twelve bungalows set across 300-hectares of private sanctuary beach, the Kisawa Sanctuary features modern interior design that has been reinvented by use of the 3D printer. The property’s flooring, tiling, masonry and other cosmetic design elements have been created using a patented 3D printing technology that protects the environment and ensures to reduce carbon footprint to a minimum.
Commenting on it, Nina Flohr – Design and Concept Creator for Kisawa Sanctuary, said: “My mission for Kisawa is to create a level of hospitality and design that, to my knowledge, does not exist today, a place that inspires feelings of freedom and luxury born from nature, space and true privacy,” She further added, “We have used design as a tool, not as a style, to ensure Kisawa is integrated, both culturally and environmentally into Mozambique.”
The luxury resort will also be home to a world-class spa specializing in Chinese medicine and Ayurveda, a gym, a tennis court, watersports facilities and four restaurants. It will open to guests in Summer for rates starting at US$5,714 per night. Craving a getaway already!
