Lodge Key Features


In the lively area of Tofo, Baia Sonambula is in an ideal and central location – close to the fantastic dive spots (and the highly professional companies that conduct the dives), as well as the exciting Tofo nightlife. Visit some other nearby lodges for sundowners and a cocktail or check out some of the local restaurants for a delicious and fresh seafood meal.

Small and intimate

With just 6 rooms, Baia Sonambula has an intimate and friendly feel about the place, with the attentive and kind staff, caring for your individual needs. If you need some down time and a nice siesta after a scuba dive or just a morning of exploring and enjoying the available activities, you can retire to your breezy sea front bungalow for some peace and quiet without having to worry about the sounds of a busy and noisy resort!

Cute, clean rooms with sea views

With such affordable rates it is definitely worth springing for the sea view bungalows, with number 4 being the highlight! All of these bungalows are spacious and airy with big doors that open up the whole front of the room, letting in that fresh sea breeze. All en-suite, these rooms are charmingly decorated in a modern traditional style and are just a stone’s throw away from the beach, meaning you have the sound of the Indian Ocean waves to lull you to sleep.

Client Reviews

  • Fantastic small hotel

    We have stayed at many great hotels – big and small – all over the world, but this small guest house is an absolute favorite of ours. The staff is friendly, smiling and relaxed, the breakfast is really nice with a great variety, the location has a fantastic view over the ocean, and the rooms and the structure itself are beautifully made with high end materials. Everything is well thought through, maintained and clean. So beautiful, we will definitely be back!

  • The best guesthouse in Tofo

    We have been in Baia Sonambula during our stay in Tofo. The guesthouse is amazing: 30 mt from the beach, with a wonderful view of the bay. There are different rooms: we have been in the garden view and the bungalow. The second is much better, bigger and with a splendid view. The common areas are super nice, the living room and the terrace where they serve the breakfast or you can have an aperitive at the sundown. Highly recommend

  • Best room we have ever stayed in

    Our stay at Baia Sonambula was amazing. The room, sea view bungalow 4, was the best room we have ever stayed it. The design, view, finishing touches and comfort were outstanding. The breakfast was delicious, fresh and served with a smile.
    A wonderful guesthouse, in a very good location for exploring Tofo!
