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

This place was just perfect. The island itself is just beautiful with amazing white sand everywhere and crystal clear waters. The house reef which is accessible from the beach and has a depth of just 1-3 meters is just incredible with a huge variety of colorful fish and corals, that one would expect to see while diving and not when...

A brief summary (there really is too much to list) -Amazing staff especially our butler, who really looked after us. -Food - without fault, although it keeps coming! amazing fish and shellfish. They organised dinner for us in all sorts of different places on the island. All were amazing. -The... More

There's no question. This is a magical, amazing place. Swim with the pod of dolphins, snorkel in the reef, have dinner under the stars, get a massage in your bungalow, or just do nothing at all. But don't dare skip any of the amazing meals.

I have travelled to numerous &Beyond lodges. My experience with them has always been 5 Star. Mnemba gets 6 Stars though. The setting is unbeatable. The service was faultless. My scuba diving (Which is included in the rate) was some of the best I have enjoyed anywhere in the world. We snorkeled amongst dolphins. On our final scuba dive a... More
