Ibo Island Lodge is set in the Indian Ocean on unspoilt Ibo Island. The lodge has a prime waterfront site. All rooms face either the sea or garden. Ibo is a potential World Heritage Site and therefore the rooms have been designed to incorporate the original architecture of the buildings. Ibo Island Lodge is located on the prime waterfront site, overlooking the sunset and views of dhows sailing past at high tide. The lodge encompasses three magnificent mansions each over one hundred years old with walls over a meter thick and high ceilings.
All rooms are individually designed and unique. The wide verandas are furnished with hand crafted furniture and soft cushions. All rooms are air-conditioned and also have ceiling fans. All have ensuite bathrooms with twin basins and large showers. Some also have baths and outside showers.
The lodge has two swimming pools set in tropical gardens, an air-conditioned lounge and private dinning room as well as a roof terrace restaurant with an open-air lounge area for after dinner drinks under the stars. Meals feature freshly grown vegetables, fruits and herbs combined with locally caught seafood.
Once Mozambique's mighty trading centre, Ibo Island has remained all but forgotten to the outside world for almost a century. Wandering around this colonial little town amongst old forts and ancient romantic buildings you can feel the history and fascinating stories crunching under your feet.
Guests at Ibo Island Lodge have a wide choice of experiences including watersports and fishing and opportunities to interact with the local islanders. The lodge offers guided historic and cultural tours of the island, excursions to the mangroves, sea kayaking and dhow cruises.
