Ibo Island Lodge

Magical, unique and atmospheric lodge

Ibo Island Lodge is located on remote Ibo Island, one of the 32 islands of the Quirimbas archipelago. A unique location due to the combination of African bush and tropical island. The daily life of the inhabitants of this unexplored archipelago is still the same as it was a thousand years ago. The reefs have also remained untouched, so the underwater world is populated by a huge amount of sea creatures such as parrotfish, red snappers, large schools of barracudas and dolphins and whales in season. But biodiversity is also enormous above water. Birdwatchers can enjoy themselves here!

The lodge has 14 guesthouses spread over three beautiful historic mansions. Each room is individually designed, simple but elegant and with luxurious details. There are 'Sea Facing Rooms' with sea views, 'Historical Rooms' overlooking the tropical gardens, the 'Gardenrooms' with huge verandas and the private villa 'Paradiso' with its own swimming pool, kitchen and roof terrace. As luxurious as you like.

Enchanting sunsets and breathtaking starry nights

Breakfast and lunch can be enjoyed at different locations; in the privacy of your own porch, on a sandbar, on the beach, at the fort of Joao Baptiste or under the palms in the tropical garden.   For dinner, visit the restaurant on the 'Bela Vista' roof terrace. Here you can enjoy the most enchanting sunsets during a drink and dinner. The talented chefs will wow you with their tasteful menus – with a wide variety of fresh seascreen. And after dinner, you can wait on the same roof terrace for a breathtaking starry night.
