Why we Love Sussurro Mozambique

A simple but breathtakingly stunning design led boutique hotel set in total seclusion on a remote peninsular. Sussurro can only be accessed at low tide which adds to its privacy. The ingredients for the cuisine are locally sourced and fresh, and the attitude towards everything flexible and authentic. The pool offers a great place to relax and swim during heat of day when you not either relaxing and recharging in your private bungalow, or out and about exploring. Friendly and well trained staff, and best of all owner operated with passion by Sarah Birkett and Adam Humphreys.

Sussurro Lodge is situated on the secluded peninsular known as Nhamabue, east of Baía do Govuro, and north of Vilanculos in Mozambique. The closest airport is Vilanculos. Transfer by road in 90 minutes to Sussurro or fly in.

The name Sussurro means quite literally ’mindful luxury’. The ethos was to create a meaningful travel experience that honours local traditions, giving back and sustainability and the end result is truly stunning.

The lodge was build using only locally sourced materials and is powered by renewable energy. Achingly chic, yet totally simple,  the overall feel is calm and authentic. Just 6 large bungalows  offer luxury beach accommodation to a handful of lucky guests over a 92 square meters of personal space surrounded by mature vegetation. Each suite at Sussurro includes indoor and outdoor bathing facilities and a generous lagoon front veranda. The design blends raw concrete, natural textures, palm thatch,  basket weave, and dressed in a soothing  pallet of off white fabric, mosquito netting and natural textures.

Co -founder Sarah Birkett has a passion for showcasing hand -made African craftmanship and it is  evident throughout the design. Here  you will not find a mass produced plastic item and everything has been mindfully sourced and placed to create an authentic Mozambican atmosphere.

Guests can also support local community, conservation and reforestation programs.
