What's not to like? Beach is pristine. Rooms are stunning. Pretty much private. Food was excellent if you like fish and pasta. I also had one of my top dives in my life with just the dive master and my wife. We were surrounded by a school of Rays, saw some octopus... all good. Easy flight in from Arusha and... More

Mnemba island,exclusively reserved for 10 couples,is a 10 star Robinson Crusoe experience and easily qualifies as not only the most romantic island in the world,but also offers world class diving and dining.My wife Anna ,and I have been very regular visitors since 1994,spending our birthday and Anniversary celebrations here. I have completed more than 400 dives in this marine wonderland... More

From the warm welcoming waves to the last goodbyes, we experienced impeccable service. This place can hardly be put into words, the rooms, the food, the staff, everything was perfect. Ditch your shoes and enjoy true barefoot luxury, you will never want to leave!

I had an amazing time staying at this private island, the service was great, we had our own butler, a chef made to order what we asked for, we had privacy, internet was running faster than back home (they got their own satellite). I had massage on the beach, we dinned in front of our cabana, had drinks with other... More

Mnemba Island Lodge represents the ultimate get-away where every aspect of a truly memorable holiday experience is rated 5*. Between the warm welcome upon arrival on this tiny island and the sad send-off from the beach on our last day, we enjoyed the discrete privacy of our own chalet, food prepared for the most discerning palette, daily walks around the...

We stayed on Mnemba for five nights following a week long, spectacular -- but draining -- safari. Arriving at Mnemba was just what we needed to rejuvenate ourselves before heading back home. From the moment we got to the Mnemba crossing point we were excited and the giddiness never wore off. We were warmly welcomed by the manager Mike and... More

What a wonderful week of relaxation, swimming, snorkeling, eating exceptional food, drinking really good wines and cocktails and above all, making new friends. We were last there in Jan 2005 and I think June is a better time to go. Warm but more moderate. The House Reef is close and coral and fish are abundant. The service by the butlers... More

We have just returned from a wonderful holiday at Mnemba Island. Collected at Zanzibar airport by Abbas who took us on a short tour of Stone Town before the long but interesting drive to the shore to be picked up by a boat and taken to the island. He was very pleasant and we were delighted that he was there... More

This is a special place, but is so perfect that is boring :)! Everyplace is beautiful... the island is perfect, the room is amazing with astonished views, however if you are like me that have a kind of "doves phobia” you should avoid this place because as much as you “say” for yourself that those birds are not bordering you,...
