My wife and I spent our honeymoon at this luxurius hotel. Apart from the shacks in the back ground the world class foods( crab and rice), the scuba diving and the sparkling infinity pool with a prestine white sand beach in the background sets a tropical scene for a tremendous vacation and on budget.

Pemba is a step closer to paradise, a place for aviators, travelers, storytellers, business men with unusual businesses with a Portuguese flavor and an edge of the Indian Ocean. When we landed for the first time in Pemba, we where stunned by the wonderful location, the room view on the ocean and the moon was full, and the drinks and... More

Had my second stay in Pemba and took one of the new apartment which is fantastic. Brand new with all amenities. I can really recommend that. The Restaurant Club Naval is a very busy venue, seems the place to be in Pemba. Great food and good service

Stayed at this hotel for 5 nights in August as part of a business trip. First impressions of the hotel were good and staff seemed freindly. As the days went by the attitude of the staff changed.
