Pemba Beach Hotel and Spa

Pemba Beach Hotel and Spa is the gateway to the romantic Quirimbas Archipelago on the northern coastline of Mozambique and the Niassa National Reserve. It is a world-class destination where Swahili East Africa meets Arabia in a sweeping compilation of Arabian-inspired buildings, colonnades, turrets and archways. No effort has been spared in crafting this splendid establishment where businessmen gather for high-powered meetings and where international travelers sip Gin & Tonics on manicured lawns before setting off to explore some of the most beautiful islands and pristine safari wilderness on earth.
