There is still a place where time has stood still and undisturbed for centuries. This is Ibo Island or as the locals call it: Ilha do Ibo.

Ibo Island Lodge is situated on the Indian Ocean paradise of Ibo Island, just north of the mainland city of Pemba in pristine northern Mozambique. Ibo is just one of a string of 27 tropical islands that make up the breathtakingly beautiful Quirimbas Archipelago in northern Mozambique.
Nominated for World Heritage status, Ibo is an island that is beautiful, remote and untouched by commercial developments and one of the most intriguing, idyllic and romantic islands you could dream of visiting.

Ibo Island lodge is located on the prime 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 meter thick and lofty high ceilings.
Because Ibo is a potential World Heritage Site, 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.
The lodge has two swimming pools set in tropical gardens, an air-conditioned lounge and private dinning room as well as a roof terrace restaurant with an open-air lounge area for after dinner drinks under the stars.

Guests can partake in a multitude of experiences and are captivated by the islands tranquillity, history and ambience: beach, kayak, sail, swim, massage and snorkel. Become immersed in the unchanged, ancient culture of Ibo and the rare chance to interact with wonderfully hospitable islanders. Visit and understand the lodges community projects that help to support many households on Ibo or simply relax, refresh the senses and soak up the romantic atmosphere. Ibo Island offers all the ingredients of island paradise and a journey to an era quite forgotten.

The restaurant and bar is situated on the root terrace of the Bela Vista mansion facing west for unforgettable sunsets and affording spectacular views over the bay.
Cuisine features freshly grown vegetables, herbs and fruits from the lodges garden project. Traditional Ibo specialities such as fragrant fluffy coconut rice are combined with the freshest of seafood: giant tiger prawns, game fish, crab and lobster

Rose gold, for example, is a very "now" choice for case rolex replica uk metal. Seeing all the incredible rose gold models rolling out from everyone from Audemars Piguet to Omega, I started wondering replica watches sale what a nice dress watch of that hue would look like on my wrist. As such, the rose gold Orient Symphony FER27002B0 rolex replica looked both refined and bold when I wore it, garnering curiosity and compliments from fellow watch nerds rocking Sinns and Speedmasters. The pink index markers against the slightly rolex replica iridescent deep black dial added both legibility and an elegant look. The black accents made the Orient Symphony something I could wear rolex replica with a tux or more formal suit; that the date window is beveled in rose gold is a nice detail-oriented, luxe touch. If anything, this Orient Symphony rolex replica sale nicely recalls, say, a vintage Rolex Bombe as a design reference; however, the nicely finished 41mm case, which wears even a little bigger with the minimal dial, simple bezel, and rolex replica sale polished surfaces, felt suitable for modern tastes.
