Welcome to Pemba Beach Hotel & Spa

Situated just outside of Pemba, the capital of the Cabo Delgado province, the hotel offers exclusivity and tranquillity in an idyllically beautiful and tropical setting on the unspoilt Mozambican coastline.

Pemba Beach Hotel & Spa has become very much a Business hotel, but is still the ideal place to stay a night before heading to one of the stunning islands in the Quirimbas Archipelago.




The Pemba Beach Hotel has 100 rooms; some interleading, plus an Executive Suite and a Presidential suite; all of which are sea facing, with individual balconies or terraces. The bedrooms have en suite bathrooms with bath and shower, air conditioning, mini-bar, satellite TV, direct dial telephone, coffee/tea making facilities, electronic safe, international plug sockets and hair dryer.

A lá Carte menus and buffets specialising in fresh seafood are served in the Quirimbas Restaurant with its lovely alfresco terrace.

Lunch can also be a relaxed affair around the pool or at the Club Naval bar situated at the Watersports Centre.

Pemba Beach Hotel is situated near the sleepy town of Pemba, in the northern Mozambican province of Cabo Delgado, approximately 240km from the border of Tanzania. It lies between Pemba Bay and the lovely Wimbebeach.

Pemba – formerly known as Porto Amelia – is a historic town, steeped in colonial and trading history and a gem to explore. There are local and traditional shops, as well as an authentic local market or Souk, where arts and crafts, as well as traditional silverware can be bought.

On one of the world’s largest inland bays, the hotel is close to a number of breathtaking attractions. These include the beautifully untouched Quirimbas Archipelago, a group of 32 islands, including historic Ibo; a major trading centre in previous centuries when Africa’s East Coast was controlled by Arabs, and later became a Portuguese colony.

Two forts guard Ibo, one of them a magnificent example of Portuguese architecture in the 1800s, the other reduced to a ruin. Yet Ibo itself remains a bustling local centre, silversmiths still practicing their fine work outside these forts to offer unique mementos of a special place in Africa.

Not all those who wander are lost…
