The exclusive Sava Dunes, previously known as Blue Footprints, is situated in Inhambane, cocooned on the silky white shores on a remote stretch of beach between Barra and Tofo.

The restaurant, bar and ocean chalets all have breath-taking views of the Indian Ocean, glistening just a few metres away. The concertina glass doors of the restaurant open onto both the pool deck and the deck in front of the ocean. The menu offers a selection of carefully planned mouth-watering meals using the freshest of local produce and seafood.

There are 5 stand-alone ocean facing chalets with balconies which comfortably accommodates 10 guests.  Each chalet has an open plan bathroom (no partition between bedroom and bathroom) with shower and deck. The decks are furnished with hammock, swinging chair as well as table and chairs for two.

In addition to the 5 ocean chalets, there is a self-catering garden cottage with 2 bedrooms, a shared bathroom and covered outdoor deck.  This cosy cottage is suitable for families with teenagers.

The main lodge houses the bar, lounge, dining and pool area and is connected to each of the rooms via a wooden walkway. 

The beach is a few metres from the chalets and offers warm, tranquil waters. 

In season, whale-sharks and humpback whales visit the area and bottlenose dolphins are frequently spotted.  When you’re done with a day of water-based activities, return to the lodge’s outdoor lounge and deck area, and take a dip in the refreshing swimming pool. Glide towards the swim-up bar and order a tropical cocktail while in the water

Day excursions for snorkelling, diving, ocean safaris and big game fishing can be arranged at the lodge, or prior to arrival. Basic snorkelling equipment, body boards and longboards will be available at the lodge. Die-hard scuba divers need to pre-arrange their diving activities during season.

The surrounding area is world-renowned for its ocean safaris, and guests are also able to indulge in a few cultural tours. Sava is all about providing a tranquil beach retreat experience, while minimising your carbon footprint.

Sava Dunes - Authentic, off-the-grid, tranquil and luxurious.
