Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

Ibo Island Lodge is on Ibo Island, in the beautiful and tranquil Quirimbas Archipelago. 

Rooms at Ibo Island Lodge

The rooms are housed within three magnificent historic mansions, dating back over a hundred years, with beautiful sea views. They have been renovated to the highest standard of luxury, with hand-crafted four-poster beds, high ceilings and spacious plantation-style seating on private verandas, overlooking the tropical gardens. The bathrooms come with large marble showers.

Food & Drink

Menus feature the freshest local seafood: giant tiger prawns, game fish and fresh crab with fragrant soft, fluffy coconut rice, all served on the rooftop terrace or in a location of your choice. Have lunch in the tropical gardens planted with frangipani, bougainvillea and palm trees, and then head to the beach for the perfect swim.


Many opt to relax in the pool before heading to the bar for starlit evening cocktails overlooking the dazzling bay waters.

Activities at Ibo Island Lodge

Take a guided Ibo tour, kayak, snorkel or sail in the crystal-clear ocean. Don’t forget to also relax and soak up the sublime calmness with an indulgent massage.
