Mozambique Accommodation – Historical Rooms

Kixewa and Luwa – Niassa Mansion

Kixewa means King Fish in the local Kimwani language and is one of two original historical rooms overlooking the garden at the rear of the Niassa mansion. Featuring an intricately carved 4 poster king size bed, with huge romantic mosquito net, crisp cotton linen and silk throw, air conditioning and ceiling fan, en-suite bathroom with twin basins, separate enclosed toilet, a large marble shower and a stunning range of guest amenities. Kixewa also has a small lounge, which can accommodate up to 2 small children in an inter-leading room.

Luwa is one of our most popular and largest rooms. It has a beautiful carved 4 poster king size bed, with an Indian trunk to store valuables. Large enough to accommodate a lounge area, and a hand crafted tall mahogany cupboard. It has an en-suite bathroom with a large marble shower, twin basins, and an outside shower with a view down a side alley to the sea!

Both historical rooms share the entire length of the shady Niassa back veranda that looks out over the gardens, palm trees and onto a small dip pool which is perfect for cooling off during the heat of the day.

Sitting overlooking this view one cannot imagine or prepare oneself for such a beautiful Island . I have trodden here humbly, the dawn and dusk both mystical the pace of life here reinstalls belief in human nature. The sand bank is a world apart, magnifying the beauty of the ocean in one small and shifting fragile place. Such beauty is what happens here in Ibo. Never lose what is here now ! Never let the magic at Ibo escape from the bottle I know when I boarded the air link flight at Johannesburg . The magic was beginning but arriving at Ibo and all that I have seen smelt , touched heard here has have been beyond a dream . I have visited many beautiful places and only a few have stolen my heart. Ibo Island lodge and its people, history and culture did. It is truly spectacular.
