What can couples expect?
Ibo Island was for years lost in time and adrift in the huge ocean of the Quirimbas Archipelago as a place of wildness and innate beauty. Today the tiny isle is still only known by a lucky few. But slowly, couples are discovering Ibo Island as one the most sought after secret Mozambique honeymoon destinations.
For adventurous couples
Set sail on an ancient romantic Arab sailing dhow bound for our hidden sandbank beach surrounded by turquoise Ocean and the softest of white sand. Sip champagne from our Bedouin tent bar set up especially for you before snorkelling off into clear warm waters to seek out our tropical fish and playful dolphins that inhabit the waters around Ibo.
For the truly romantic
Take a massage, indulge in a cocktail at one of our pools and soak up the exotic island atmosphere. Share precious moments together alone with a castaway picnic and private candlelit honeymoon dinners set for two under the stars in special secret places on the island to create memories for a lifetime. Afterwards retreat to your air-conditioned room with its magnificent 4 poster carved bed decorated with a romantic petal turn down.
For newlyweds interested in history and culture
Stroll around the island, hand in hand, meeting warm local folk and learning about the life they have lived for the past few generations. 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. A destination brimming with a fascinating history dating some 500 years ago, and a rich culture which still lives and breathes in the local towns on this small Mozambique isle.
For chilled out couples
Elegant accommodation forces you to unwind in a magnificently restored mansion, echoing the history of the island some 300 years ago. Be pampered with quality silk and cotton linen, antique furniture and deluxe en-suite bathrooms. Indulge in the best seafood dishes, Mozambique tastes and Portuguese influences during meals at the lodge.
Toast each other in the Bela Vista Lounge – and your new life together – in this romantic setting where solitude and gracious splendour mean more than anything to you, right now. Sit under the bright pink bougainvillaea blossoms in the garden with a cup of freshly brewed coffee then plunge into cool swimming pools.
