Balistidae

Where paradise meets adventure

Balistidae is the best private villa to rent in Mozambique on the Santa Maria peninsula. Situated within the renowned Nhoxani complex, it offers a fully catered stay, deluxe amenities, and activities galore. The colourful and curious triggerfish is the inspiration for this cosy and stylish beach villa – with direct beach access.

This villa is beautifully maintained. The use of high-quality materials is evident alongside the gorgeous coastal-inspired décor. Stroll through bright and sunny living areas showcasing wooden floors and local hardwood finishes that blend effortlessly into the soft white walls.

The neutral tones, with hints of assorted citrus, green and blue hues throughout, complement the untouched beauty of this prime holiday destination.

It comprises the main house, deluxe outdoor amenities, and five exquisite suites, with a sixth on the way. Balistidae is the ultimate luxury accommodation in Mozambique, with endless sea views and surrounded by lush coastal dune forest.

After a stroll on the pristine beach, refresh in the sparkling pool and take a timeout on a pool-side lounger or shaded couch area. If the weather is gloomy, the open-plan main house offers plenty of space to gather. There is comfortable seating, an ultramodern kitchen, and dining areas. For a treat, sink into one of the giant bean bags with a good book!

Wake up to the aroma of freshly brewed coffee as the warm sun welcomes you to a new day. In the evening, sit around a cracking bonfire with a glass of wine as the pink and orange sunset paints the vast African sky.

Your housekeeping staff ensures all you need to do is relax in pure holiday bliss! Chef Jabulani and Sibu passionately prepare all your snacks and meals.

Our guests are encouraged to meet and discuss mealtime and food preferences with the chefs. Indulge in an early breakfast, big brunch, light lunch, a 3-course dinner, a beach braai, or a seafood dinner.

The cuisine extensively uses locally caught line fish, prawns, and calamari alongside locally farmed mussels. Fresh greens and fruit are sourced in Maputo with a sprinkling grown in the onsite veggie patch.

At Balistidae, adventure is on your doorstep! Drive through The Maputo National Park in an open land cruiser or whoosh out the sea on a private boat for an exciting fishing trip.

It is easy to entertain your busy teenagers with one of the fat-bikes, fat-e-bikes, or kayaks. Several protected snorkelling sites are close to Balistidae – so bring an underwater camera for colourful memories.

Where paradise meets adventure, Balistidae accommodates your appreciation for the finer things in life in comfort and style!
