Offering a gateway to the romantic Quirimbas Archipelago, Pemba Beach Hotel and Spa is situated in northern Mozambique and offers a place where African and Arabic influences blend in a tropical haven. Ideal for romantics and families alike, Pemba offers a romantic location and a range of fun, water-based activities.

Days can be spent soaking up the sun on the magnificent beaches and dipping in the Indian Ocean, returning to the hotel for a relaxing massage or a drink beside the infinity pool. At the Clube Naval, a short walk down the beach from the hotel, you find an activity centre providing equipment for diving, fishing and snorkelling. Head out to see sea turtles and dolphins swim in the shallow waters or admire the incredible coral reefs. Other activities include waterskiing, windsurfing, body boarding, beach tennis and volleyball.

The Santuary Spa adjoins Clube Naval and seems to hover magically above the Indian Ocean. Here you find hot and cold treatment rooms, steam rooms, saunas and showers, and you can enjoy treatments with frangipani extracts from Elemis or Cape Fynbos.

The infinity pool is one of the best places to enjoy the spectacular views. Cool down on the deck with an exotic cocktail or refreshing fruit smoothie. At the Niassa Bar, you can enjoy any of your favourite drinks and take in the sunset before sitting down for dinner. After, you can return for a nightcap or coffee.
