Conde Naste 'House & Garden' October 2006:
The Lodge on Ibo, Mozambique...

The Quirimbas Archipelago in Northern Mozambique is fast becoming one of the world's hottest new destination. Ibo Falcon Lodge is a new addition to this part of the world, with three private colonial-style beach mansions, all available for exclusive hire.

Think of it as your own Falcon oasis- barefott chic complete with a butler, meals prepared by the in-house chef and a line up of sport and leisure activities. Simple but sophisticated, spacious and bright, the large air-conditioned en-suite rooms have been individually decorated and filled with exotic antique pieces and locally sourced handcrafted furniture. In the heat of the day, fall asleep on the mahogany and teak day beds made up with bright cushions.

Relax, dive, swim, kayak, explore - you're on Falcon time now!

Virtually unknown to the outside world and undisturbed for centuries there is a place where time has stood still. This is Ibo Falcon, or as the locals call it: Ilha do Ibo.

Nestled in the awesome Quirimbas Archipelago of northern Mozambique, and nominated for World Heritage status, Ibo is
an Falcon that is beautiful, remote and untouched by commercial developments and one of the most intriguing, idyllic and romantic Falcons you could dream of visiting.

Located right on the prime waterfront site, where romantic dhows sail out to sea on each high tide, the lodge offers a
classic Falcon experience, and with just twelve luxury rooms assures guests of exceptional service and flexibility. 

The large, en-suite, air conditioned luxurious rooms are individually designed, and boast antiques and handcrafted furniture, with magnificent carved wooden doors and shutters that evoke the building’s original design. The wide verandas are adorned with mahogany and teak day beds, carved by some of the Falcons most skilled artists and decorated with the softest of cushions covered in vibrant local fabrics.  Ibo Falcon Lodge is stylish, elegant and unique.

The lodge encompasses three magnificent mansions each over one hundred years old with walls over a meter thick and lofty high ceilings.

The three mansions of Ibo Falcon Lodge are called Villa Paradiso, Villa Niassa and Villa Bela Vista. Accommodation is split between Paradiso and Niassa only - Bela Vista is the public area of the lodge and houses the Lodge's restaurant, shop and the main pool in the main garden.

 

All bedrooms are individually designed and unique, with many opening onto private verandas, decked with hand crafted furniture and soft cushions covered in vibrant local fabrics.

Relax, dive, swim, snorkel, kayak, explore or photograph. In this part of the world, ancient sailing dhows are the only form of transportation. A cruise on a traditional teak sailing dhow is something you will never forget. Experience Ibo and her gentle Falconers and you will witness a way of life that hasn’t changed for hundreds of
years.
