After 10 days of safari, we concluded our trip with four nights in this Island. The setting, accomodation, waters, staff are amazing. If one's priority is to just chill and relax, this would definitely the place to be. But after getting lost in the amazing wildlife and culture of east africa, it is a bit hard to do this. Nevertheless,... More

Mnemba Island was the perfect relaxing end to a great but busy safari trip in Kenya and Tanzania. The island is lovely and the staff is friendly. The food was really good and we loved the daily sundowner cocktails. You can do as much or as little as you like on Mnemba. We chose to do somewhere in between. I... More

After spending the first part of my trip at Singita, this was a major letdown. I couldn’t help but notice Mnemba’s trying to follow in the footsteps of Six Senses, particularly the whole ‘barefoot luxury’ thing but the experience is mediocre at best. First of all getting to the island is major hassle, starting with 1h15min drive from the rundown... More

This is an Island that is jaw dropping stunning - a 10/15 min boat ride from main land Zanzibar to a dot in the ocean. Never have I experienced such untouched beauty. Pristine white sand, azure blue waters, food, hospitality, accommodation, 5 stars all the way +++. Biggest decision to take each morning whether to walk left or right around... More

The first thing Peter, the manager, told us as we stepped off the boat was, "Put your shoes away, you won't be needing them here.", and he was right. Or much of anything else for that matter. If you are looking for a place where you can forget the rest of the world, completely chill out, and take everything at... More

We stayed at the Mnemba Island Lodge for three nights in June 2011. We wanted to stay longer but unfortunately they didn't have availability. We liked the island and the lodge very much and I strongly believe that is the nicest place in Zanzibar - however I think that Maldives which is even nicer could offer better value for money......

We have had the great good fortune to visit Mnemba Island quite a few times and it is without any doubt the most magical beautiful place on the planet! It is a slice of paradise that wraps the wonderful soothing whisper of the forest and her gentle Suni and Adder antelope with the sapphire and tanzanite hues of the waters... More

We ended our honeymoon with 4 nights here after a safari which is more tiring than we imagined. After watching the migration we were ready to relax and this place was off the charts. The ride from stone town is BRUTAL but once the boat picks you up its all worth it. THe people were amazing, our butler Roj was... More

This lodge was like a dream. The location was spell-bounding, staff were helpful and friendly, food was great, booze was plentiful. There were no biting bugs on the island nor snakes and other creepy crawlies. It could not have been better. I regret that we only stayed there for 2 nights. It was a magical experience and I felt entirely... More
