Hotel Escondidinho, a classic favourite for accommodation on Ilha de Mozambique, is a lovely large old colonial house, tastefully restored in typical style, with a swimming pool in the internal garden.  The atmospheric hotel benefits from high ceilings, large windows and its position on a quiet street in the middle of the island.  Most of the rooms are air-conditioned, but those that are not have ceiling fans. Some rooms have en-suite bathrooms and other external but private bathrooms.

There is a good restaurant in the hotel, with one speciality being the excellent lobster salad and it is a nice, informal place to relax in the evenings.  

Due to its central location, it is easy to walk to all the historic attractions from Hotel Escondidinho – the museum, the churches and mosques are all close by.

A guided tour of the island on foot is highly recommended in order to learn all you can about its fascinating history.  Hotel staff can organise dhow trips to the neighbouring islands and beaches and sunset cruises.  

Rates are from $30 per person per night sharing and includes a continental breakfast. Cheaper rooms have external but private bathrooms. The rooms with en-suite bathrooms costs between $45 - $60 per person sharing per night.

Hotel Escondidinho is located on Rua dos Herois in the Bairro do Museu, opposite the Municipality, in the middle of the island.

We can arrange comfortable, reliable road transfers from Nampula or Pemba for you and there is parking available on the square in front of the hotel for guests arriving with their own vehicle.

Because of the size of the island, once you are on Ilha you do not need a car to get around.
