Spent 4 nights on this incredible island with my wife, absolutely breathtaking. Peter and his team bring new meaning to 'Bespoke Service', if you are looking for the ultimate 'chill' location look no further. Thanks Peter!

My wife & I just spent 8 nights there. Peter and his team were fantastic. My wife is pregnant and the team went out of the way to cater to her special needs. We swam with dolphins for nearly an hour at a time on three occasions! I love diving, sailing, fishing but hard to beat swimming with such beautiful... More

There are not enough words to explain how unreal this place is. We spent 6 nights here and everything is pretty much perfect down to the last detail. Huge well done to &beyond, Mike and Sarah and the rest of the team...(Eli, Meg, Soloman and Rox deserve special mention). Rooms unbelievable! The suni antelope and doves add to the rustic... More

There are so many amazing things to say about this magnificent place! I guess all that I could say is that I have never enjoyed any vacation anywhere more than my 5 days on Mnemba Island?

Perfect climate with smooth wind all the day and night in your beautiful, spacious and natural banda, set apart from the 9 others, allways with a view to the indian ocean. Mnemba has all the basics said to be ideal for an island. White sands like meal, turquoise water, blue sky and really perfect service. The staff creates an incredible... More

Probably the nicest beach hotel that we have stayed at. Once we boarded the boat from Zanzibar to Mnemba, we took off our shoes, and we did not need them until we left. The beach was amazing as the white coral sand does not retain heat, and the water was cool and refreshing. We loved our banda with its own... More

After 4 nights on safari and a further 6 climbing Kili a week on Mnemba was the perfect way to unwind and enjoy the rest of our honeymoon. There is little to do on the island - which was what we were looking for after such a hectic month - and slowing everything right down allowed us to start enjoying... More

Absolutely stunning island. We stayed 10 nights on Mnemba island for our honeymoon and couldn't have chosen better. The bandas are tremendously well appointed and are a genuine barefoot 5 star. The food is genuinely top class as are all the staff. Diving is varied and excellent, we learned to dive here and they catered for us without problem. The... More
