About Bahia Mar
Bahia Mar Boutique Hotel in Mozambique opened in April 2014 and has become synonymous with sustainable tourism in Vilankulo. We pride ourselves on our community spirit; Our hotel community in which we offer ongoing training and a good, fair working environment to our staff. Our wider community in which we support a number of projects and our global community which we support with our commitment to clean energy solutions, plastic-free environment and involvement in making the world a better place for our children.
Fair Trade Tourism is a non-profit organisation which promotes best-practice, responsible tourism in Africa. Bahia Mar is a member of the organisation and we are proud to have been awarded the prestigious accolade of certification from them. Fair trade tourism is defined by fair wages and working conditions, fair purchasing and operations, respect for human rights, culture and the environment.
Bahia Mar has partnered with PARCO, a local NGO that concentrates on providing help where it is needed within our community. Along with the help of our guests, we fund the one pre-school providing money for teachers’ salaries, resources for the children and a healthy meal. Another one of our supported projects is the The Sea Horse Conservation program. This successful initiative has transformed a village that was previously reliant on poaching seahorses for its income.
We are proud members of Pack for a Purpose,
an initiative that allows travelers like you to make a lasting impact in the community at your travel destination. If you save just a few kilos of space in your suitcase and take supplies for the projects we support in need, you’ll make a priceless impact in the lives of our local children and families.
