Coming from someone who doesn't holiday in the same location twice I've now visited Fundu three times. It's a bit of a shlep but worth every single mile. The bedrooms are luxurious, private 'tents' with the most amazing showers, complete with gorgeous shampoo, conditioners and shower gel. The fully stocked, complimentary mini bar is perfect for pre sundowners on the... More

We stayed at the Fundu Lagoon resort for 7 nights after a 4 day safari in the Masai Mara, and 2 nights in Nairobi where we had taken part in the marathon, so to be able to enjoy 7 nights of total R&R was our well earned reward. The journey from Nairobi to Fundu Lagoon is not the easiest as... More

This is a place for the discerning - people who love the environment, an African experience and exceptional service - it is not a hotel for those that love Dubai, Disneyland or an urban get away - ladies, leave your high heels at home! This is a barefoot luxury resort. My husband and I came for the latter part of... More

Not having been back to Fundu for some five years I decided it was time to treat myself and a friend visiting from the UK to a few days of 'Barefoot Luxury' at the fabulous Fundu. After the short flight from we were met by two charming Pembans who drove us through the lush tropical rainforest thick with the scent... More

We stayed at Fundu Lagoon as part of our honeymoon in August 2014, and It was the most perfect place to unwind, relax, and forget about your worries.

We recently had a great five night stay here. Before we arrived we were a little worried that it would not live up to all of the rave reviews. We'd previously been to the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater and the Mahale Mountains and all of the places we had stayed at had been very good and so we were expecting (perhaps... More
