Off the east coast of the East-African country Mozambique is the Archipelago de Bazaruto. And in this archipelago there are six islands of unfathomable beauty, including Benguerra Island. And it is on this island that the Kisawa Sanctuary is based, a brand new luxury opening that was built with a 3D printer.
O.K, we’re sure it wasn’t the only tool on the work site when this stunning retreat was being built, but it was used to construct things like flooring, tiling, benchtops, stools, tabletops, vases and more. That’s pretty cool in our book.
There are only 12 residences in Kisawa, each with its own private beach (!), an open-air deck, an infinity pool and more. There’s epic food, with some gun chefs cooking up a storm with local produce, and plenty of watersports – think spas, sailing and snorkelling.
As well as being a sanctuary for humans, the area is one for marine life too – the area surrounding the 55square kilometre island is a designated WWF national marine park. This means it’s an untouched, pristine environment, making it not unlikely for you to see a whale or a dugong in the distance as you sip a sunset champagne. Life could be worse.
