Ibo Island Lodge is located on a idyllic waterfront site, where romantic dhows sail out to sea on each high tide. The lodge encompasses magnificent mansions each over one hundred years old with walls over a metre thick and lofty high ceilings. Ibo Island is a potential World Heritage Site and therefore the rooms have been designed to incorporate the original architecture of the buildings. All are individually designed and unique. The wide verandas are furnished with hand-crafted furniture and soft cushions. All rooms are air-conditioned and also have ceiling fans.
