Ibo Island Lodge
Ibo Island lies in the Quirimbas Archipelago of northern Mozambique. Nominated for World Heritage status, Ibo is one of the most unique and atmospheric islands in the world; its colonial relics definitely give Ilha de Mozambique a run for its money! Located on the prime waterfront site where dhows sail out to sea on each high tide, Ibo Island Lodge encompasses magnificent mansions over one hundred years old. The lodge sports coral and lime walls over a meter thick, high lofty ceilings, and original beams. It accommodates guests in beautifully elegant yet simple rooms with indigenous solid teak and mahogany furniture handcrafted by the people of Ibo. All nine bedrooms are unique and feature a king size four-poster, or twin hand crafted beds with crisp cotton linen and Indian silk throws.
Although Ibo is not the most luxurious beach destination in Mozambique, the island itself is a very unique destination and a stay at Ibo offers the opportunity for travelers to get a taste of local culture and people of the island. You are just a 10 minute walk from local towns and villages that you can easily explore on your own.
