Jardim dos Aloés, Casa de Charme
Garden of Aloes, Unique B&B
We are located on Mozambique Island (Ilha de Moçambique), Nampula Province, Mozambique.
We are building a boutique Bed and Breakfast out of ancient ruins in one of the most historically rich, physically beautiful and best preserved sites in the whole Southern African region. Vasco da Gama, anchored here in 1498 and soon afterwards Mozambique Island became the most strategic port on the route to India. Over time became the capital of the territory of Mozambique. Maputo took over as capital in 1898.
The Island (A Ilha) is one of Unesco World Heritage sites and central to an endless number of bays, small islands and white beaches for great swimming and snorkeling.
At Jardim dos Aloés we make an effort to make you feel as friends in our home not guests in a conventional hotel. We pay particular attention to details and personalize all areas and rooms as the historic walls and shapes suggest.
The B&B complex will include the family residence, a two-room-suite/apartment, three more one-room-suites, one double and one single bedroom, the garden and the swimming pool, terraces and verandas.
So far one area out of three of the complex has been completed and started operating.
The premises are called Jardim dos Aloés (or Garden of Aloes) due to the many varieties of Aloe plants grown in the property. These include the local Aloe Massawana, the imported Aloe Vera as well as Aloe Arborescens, Ferox, Marlothy and many other local varieties collected by the owners. Some of them give name to a specific room and are used for making fresh Aloe Gel and very unique healthy organic jams and juices.
