Our rooms are the loving expression of our philosophy.
We know you are making an investment to journey and to stay at Fogo Island Inn. We promise you will experience hospitality unlike anywhere else. Our 29 guest rooms were designed to carry forward the richness of outport traditions in concert with the very best contemporary design elements. The world outside our walls, the natural world, receives love, attention, and respect equal to that which we show our guests. Our food is grounded in this place and every meal, from daybreak through midnight and all points in between, is crafted using ingredients fished, farmed, and foraged right here.
Our outdoor guides will orient you to our “near North” landscape… they know every rock, berry, wildflower, pond, and creature that calls Fogo Island home, and they can’t wait to share this local knowledge with you. Our Community Hosts are looking forward to welcoming you into our centuries-old, place specific culture… a culture that reflects lives lived as fishing people on the North Atlantic.
Your investment keeps our Island strong. The Inn is a Shorefast social business that optimizes for local employment and reinvests surpluses into the community.
Rates are per night, per room, and based on two persons per room. A two-night minimum applies (except three nights from June to September). We designed our pricing to be inclusive of a complete hospitality experience. To that end, rates are inclusive of all meals, a half-day Island Orientation with a Community Host, and most excursions. Any requests within our power to deliver will be met with a smile and without extra charge: laundry services, bicycles, snacks, extra toiletries, and general support and guidance during your trip are all on offer and included in your room rate. Just pay your own alcohol and taxes.
Fogo Island Inn is a non-tipping community enterprise. Our employees participate in an incentive-based bonus plan as part of their compensation. Our pioneering Economic Nutrition certification mark shows where the money goes. For example, in 2018, 49% of our gross revenue was allocated to the combination of employee salary, bonuses, benefits and related costs. While this is much higher than most hotels, we are very proud to return such a high percentage of our revenue to the people who make your stay so special.
