Oh my word.... This was a holiday of a lifetime. After doing the entire &Beyond Tanzania safari run we left the best for last! I absolutely cannot fault anything about mnemba, from the service to the food... It was a 11/10. The smiling faces of the staff will stay with me forever. Roja our butler rocked!! They cannot do enough... More

We stayed at Mnemba in May 2014. I had studied the reviews on Mnemba well and so my expectations were very high. I can say quite easily that I give it 5 out of 5. It is absolutely beautiful. Hard to believe that somewhere like it exists just a 3 hour flight from SA. Accommodation is really wonderful! A colonial... More

What more can I add to the glowing reviews. A beautiful desert island in the Indian Ocean, 6 other guests, and a staff devoted to making the experience wonderful. All true. I'll highlight some things others might not have covered. We went primarily for SCUBA diving. And the reefs are superior. Lush with life, very very healthy, and all within... More

Following eight days on safari, my husband Justin and I spent a week on the island. We found it absolutely stunning and had a wonderful time. Our banda was beautiful, right on the beach and we were so spoilt and well looked after by everyone. The food was amazing, delicious fresh fish, lobster and kalamari, if that was what you... More

We had high hopes for Mnemba Island having read the various reviews but like so many, we could not have imagined such a perfect setting. For us, it ticked all the right boxes, from the friendly welcome on the beach, to the perfectly relaxing setting. We were in banda #1 and enjoyed every minute of it. Our butler would greet... More

It is so difficult to write this report without continually using superlatives,but Mnemba just warrants it -rarely have we seen such a harmonious blend of rustic african chic and unadulterated luxury on such a pristine small private atoll. We are certainly no strangers to tropical islands,but the arrival with the pure white sands and multiple hues of blue/green took even... More

Back before our first visit here in 2009 I was reluctant to go to a tiny coral atholl with only 12 rooms, which was reccommended as an ideal honeymoon destination, as I was recently divorced and travelling with my two daughters. However, I am a fan of AndBeyond and was persuaded to give it a shot. We have just returned... More

This is the most beautiful ocean water and pure white sand beach...as the light changes, the water changes from turquoise, azure, cobalt, etc and my camera couldn't keep up! The staff is excellent, and somehow in the most discreet way, attends to your every need. The food is fabulous - 5 Chefs worked in the kitchen, and the Head Chef... More

This is the place that will make us come back to Tanzania, even if it is only to go to this hotel we are sure that it is worth the travel. Perfect for honeymoon, anniversaries, or just because... the rooms are open spaces as well as the bathroom... you don't need to know much, it will exceed your expectations. The... More

This is an incredibly beautiful place. The white sand and crystal clear water are heaven. The food is UNBELIEVABLY good - better than anything I've found in London. Lots to do if you want (the diving is great and we were lucky enough to swim with dolphins on our final day) and absolute heaven just reading a book on the... More
