Architecture

Oto ARQUITECTOS

The exotic architecture of Sentidos is driven by its utterly beguiling location between a lagoon and the Indian Ocean and surrounded by mangroves. Separate from the main building, the villas can be accessed by a wooden bridge set on stakes whose lit lanterns after sunset provide the most romantic walk “back home” at night. The hotel’s architecture complies with the region’s sustainability guidelines, matching exotic wood with local construction materials and textiles. A generous smattering of copper and brass are an ode to Mozambique’s colonial times.

Many materials, especially wood, have been cleverly repurposed, such as the old boat parts that make up the main balcony of the restaurant. The architects sought the help of local surfer and carpenter Arjen Pennekamp to fashion the epoxy-covered rustic balcony.

Interior Design

SEA AS FAR AS THE EYE CAN SEE

A fresh take on design on the shores of Mozambique, the interiors have clean simple lines with a touch of history. A mix of local furniture and handicrafts have been effortlessly put together with pieces scoured from Bali, South Africa, and Portugal.
