Kisawa Sanctuary

Eco-resort and TCM spa realised by 3D-printing opens in Mozambique


Eco-wellness resort Kisawa Sanctuary is in its soft opening phase on Mozambique’s subtropical island of Benguerra, complete with a Natural Wellness Centre inspired by Mozambican dwellings.

Kisawa has been brought to life using 3D sand-printing technology and is the brainchild of entrepreneur Nina Flohr – the daughter of Thomas Flohr, Swiss billionaire and founder of private aviation company VistaJet. The method was used wherever possible to replace less sustainable construction practices, including during the inception of the Natural Wellness Centre.

Located amongst dunes, the wellness centre will open next month and offer rituals rooted in the five natural elements, traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurveda.

Guests will be offered individual treatments or personalised wellbeing programmes, in collaboration with their private chef and the broader Kisawa team.

Rituals including massage, reiki, meditation, a selection of yoga disciplines, breathwork, cleanses and energetic healing to help guests rebalance.

Additional facilities will include a Japanese Iyashi Dome sauna and a modern gym.

Kisawa offers a combination of 12 one, two and three-bed bungalow residences, positioned within a 300 hectare stretch of forest, beach and sand dunes.

In her role as creative director, Flohr focused on authentic storytelling.

“My mission for Kisawa is to create a level of hospitality and design that, to my knowledge, does not exist today, a place that inspires feelings of freedom and luxury born from nature, space and true privacy,” she comments.
