What an amazing experience! The staff were super friendly, Liz made the whole trip so special! From the moment we reached the speedboat I felt like I was in a romantic adventure film :) The setup of the resort is just magnificent with the wooden bandas hidden in between lush forest.

We stayed here for 8 nights at the end of our honeymoon after safari in Selous and Ruaha, and had an amazing stay. There is something very special about arriving somewhere by speedboat and from that moment on it didn't disappoint! This really is a touch of barefoot luxury in a truly unspoilt place.

What a little corner of paradise. Arrival is only just the beginning, having driven across the lush island to the smell of cloves we were refreshed by a speedy transfer by boat to the Fundu jetty.

Fabulous experience.....a beautiful, serene place. We spent seven days in a beach front room and were spoiled. The staff, setting and food were lovely. It is a perfect place to escape and unwind. We would love to return.
