Travellers to Mozambique all have their own ideas about where they want to stay. A holiday in the Quirimbas Archipelago offers a wide range of accommodation to people seeking solitude and beauty, away from the hum-drum of life.
A Mozambique Holiday at Ibo Island Lodge has it all – the beauty of the island beaches, the warmth of the Indian Ocean and the fascinating history of an ancient Arab trading post from where gold and ivory was shipped to the Arab world. Accommodation in true Mozambique style conveys to visitors nuances of the past, a wild and fascinating time.
Luxury, decadence and extreme beauty – fly to Mozambique for family holidays on Quirimbas beaches, romantic retreats, diving and fishing or 4×4 packages for the more adventurous. Accommodation on the islands suits all tastes and all pockets. Discover amazing dive sites and fascinating colonial architecture when you fly into Pemba then head out to Ibo Island, Matemo, Medjumbe, Quilalea and Vamizi islands, all offering unique accommodation in villas, beach resorts, hotels and cabanas.
If you choose Ibo Island, you will find out that it has been zoned for World Heritage status and has countless stories to tell: about pirates, prisoners, turtle shells and silver. The island’s architecture radiates Portuguese, Dutch, Indian, Arabian and Chinese influences – there are ruins and there is renovation – the island works well as a romantic holiday destination for families, friends and honeymoon couples.
If you choose the charmingly renovated Ibo Island Lodge you are choosing a hotel built on the 100 year old ruins of Portuguese history. You will be spoilt with beautiful panoramic sunsets, breath-taking dhow rides and an introduction to a world of history and culture going back some 600 years.
This is an amazing, unique place! Quirimbas holiday activities include charter yacht holidays, overnight dhow safaris where guests share the sand with turtles and sea birds and simply incredible villas and chalets dotted along quiet beaches.
