Ibo Island Lodge

Voted as one of the most magical islands in the world and nominated for World Heritage status, a visit here is like stepping back in history.

Accommodation is in renovated old colonial villas and every room, although different, faces either the beach or the garden. The hotel has a large swimming pool, pretty gardens and charming service, with a rooftop bar the perfect location from which to enjoy a cocktail as the sun sets. For those seeking further adventure, overnight dhow cruises are available to deserted islands.

Our Thoughts

A wonderful refuge on an extraordinary island, where time has seemed to stop. Do not expect nightlife, and local restaurant and bars, but do be prepared to be enamoured by a real-life African time capsule. Ask your guide to show you the ledgers in the derelict customs office - piled high to the ceiling and abandoned, left to fade in the sun.
