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.

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.”
