Newlyweds can stroll around Ibo Island, hand in hand, meeting warm folk and learning about the life they have lived for the past few generations. Romance is the key when you book a honeymoon in the Quirimbas, at Ibo Island Lodge, one of the most elegant and chic hotels in Mozambique.
The magnificently restored ancient mansions and their tasteful décor that is reminiscent of Arab and Portuguese influences takes every couple’s breath away – echoing the history of the island some 300 years ago, the suites pamper guests with their quality silk and cotton linen, beautiful antique furniture and deluxe en-suite bathrooms.
Ibo Island is one of more than 30 remote islands off the coast of Pemba port, a region that remains untouched by development, ideal for those wanting to get away alone. And the lodge is both stylish and relaxed, offering all the ingredients for a once in a lifetime Mozambique island holiday, creating life changing memories through incredible activities.
When you decide to book a special package deal to this unique Mozambique hotel, you will discover Ibo Island Lodge’s secret – a tidal sand bank beach which you reach in a traditional dhow and where you stay at low tide until the high tide washes you back to the lodge! Enjoy a real castaway picnic as you snorkel for hours, swim with the surreal dolphins and explore untouched mangrove swamps in a kayak. Ibo Island offers romance, adventure, cultural legends and true relaxation, away from the madding crowd.
Many visitors want to know these days whether their Mozambique hotel is part of the movement towards sustainable tourism and yes, Ibo Island Lodge in theQuirimbas Archipelago recognizes the important role of business in the conservation of biodiversity. Employing local people from Ibo certainly assists in preserving the region’s natural resources for future generations.
As a result, on Ibo Island today there are fewer traditional subsistence fishermen and more people being gainfully employed in tourism endeavours. Conservation education aims to reduce the impacts of local people on threatened natural resources. It is these local people who massage your back when you enjoy traditional massage treatments that use methods and ingredients that have been passed down through the ages on the island.
See the end of the day from the heart of Ibo Island Lodge, upstairs at the Bela Vista roof deck restaurant where you sip sundowners as the sky turns crimson and after dinner drinks as hundreds of stars twinkle. Retire to your room, one of 14 exquisitely decorated and furnished suites which stay cool in the heat of the day. Meter thick coral and lime walls, high ceilings and solid teak beams ensure these rooms were built to last. Wander into the hotel gardens to catch the aroma of the frangipani and see the vivid orange flowers of the bougainvillea, before a dip in one of the sparkling swimming pools.
