O Escondidinho

Top choice hotel in Mozambique Island

In a sturdy but genteel old trading house in Stone Town, you can recline like a colonial lord in atmospheric high-ceilinged rooms furnished with four-poster beds draped with mosquito nets. Seven of the 10 rooms have large bathrooms and there are more refinements downstairs, with a flower-embellished garden and small pool overlooked by one of the town's best restaurants.
