The history of the Portuguese Spice Route is the inspiration for this wonderful boutique hotel. Each room reflects a different stop in the route – Calcutta, Mozambique, Timor, and more. The rooftop terrace has two Jacuzzis and a small pool and the restaurant is one of the best in town.
Most parts of this city are 400 or 500 years old, so it really is like stepping into a living museum. The colonial feel highlights the country’s close links to Africa, reflected in the local cuisine and music. The town is famous also for capoeira, the ballet-like martial art.
