Why we Love Jardim

Once in a while, you come across a place that really stands out from the crowd! Welcome to the Garden of Aloes (Jardim dos Aloés), situated in the heart of a historic old city, a place where history and imagination meet on Mozambique Island.
A charming family-run bed and breakfast with Unique rooms each decorated in different colours, tasteful ornaments and a myriad of fascinating old clocks, gramophones, radios and other age-old reminders of another more unhurried and cultured time.

Welcome to the Jardim dos Aloes (Garden of Aloes), characterful Mocambique Island accommodation named after the many varieties of Aloe plants that the Italian owners grow in their stunning garden.  Situated on the Island of Mozambique (lha de Mocambique), in the northern region of the Mozambican coastline, this Bed and Breakfast is a great venue for families.

Jardim dos Aloes has emerged from the ruins of an extremely historical and cultural site where many years ago Vasco da Gama anchored his boat. Mozambique Island became the capital of present day Mozambique and today the entire island is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Book into ancient rooms named after aloes growing in the lush garden. This is not a conventional hotel – it is an intimate family-run bed and breakfast, part of the history of Ilha de Mozambique. Your holidays will reveal adventures and stories about the past you never dreamed of experiencing in Mozambique.
