Ibo Island Lodge


The bedrooms at Ibo Island Lodge are all inside the adjoining colonial mansions, which have been restored carefully, keeping their characters, whilst updating their facilities – to include en-suite bathrooms, air-conditioning and ceiling fans.

Each room is unique, but all have as their central feature a king-size (or twin) hand-crafted bed, decorated with Indian silk throws. 100% cotton, white linen is used throughout (cotton summer duvets are available on request). All of these beds have all been made from local wood by local craftsman, as part of the carpentry community workshop – and all are swathed by a walk-in mosquito net which is easily large enough to contain the bedside tables and lamps. Why aren't all mosquito nets in Africa this large!

There are also large, hand crafted wardrobes and a lockable chest in every room for valuables – and outside each room has it's own outside veranda, with comfy plantation-style seating. Some of these overlook the ocean, others overlook the garden.

All the rooms at Ibo Island Lodge have en-suite spacious bathrooms are fitted with local marble – including hot and cold water and separate flush toilets. In each bathroom at Ibo are twin basins, large marble showers and antique brass taps. Two of the rooms also have a ball-and-claw antique bath; another two rooms have an outside shower in addition to the one inside.

Each has a range of complementary toiletries, including bath and shower gel, liquid soap, shampoo and conditioner and body lotion. Pool and separate beach towels are available.

You will also find flasks of chilled drinking water in each room at Ibo Island Lodge, which is replenished at 'turn-down' every evening, or more frequently on request. Each room also has guest information, a golf umbrella for the rainy season, a torch, a Ibo Island-branded linen dressing gown, and a straw sun hat for use whilst on Ibo Island.
