I found myself clicking on ‘confirm’ to purchase an airline ticket after a last minute decision for us to celebrate my birthday in Zanzibar. Next to book was the accommodation. Coming highly recommended was Fumba Beach Lodge and now it was my chance to experience this peaceful hideaway just 30 minutes drive from Stone Town. A quick look at the... More

Fumba Beach Lodge is located at the end of the peninsula south of Stone Town and the International airport, adjacent to the small village of Fumba. It was a good base from which to take a number of island tours. Making use of the scenic location, the grounds are beautifully landscaped with local flora, interspersed with pathways to the various... More

After 5 days on safari, we came to Zanzibar for the 2nd half of our honeymoon to relax and recover. We could not have stayed at a more perfect place. Even during the quick tour around the lodge with the manager Michiel- we knew we would enjoy our stay. The pool with views out across the sea, the open fronted... More

I had a wonderful time at the Fumba Lodge. The food was amazing and the chefs are very creative. The Personal was very kind and helped with every wish. Also the diving site is very beautiful I saw a lot of fishs and the ride with the boat is unique. I will definitely visit this place again!!

Fumba Beach Lodge is a dream desert island holiday spot .... not for the electronic tech junkies who need constant entertainment at the flick of a switch, but rather for those who love nature, appreciate tranquility & relaxing beside the beautiful Indian ocean. The staff are super attentive, polite and endearing.It has all the facilities of a resort hotel but... More

this was our second stay at Fumba beach, each time we stayed we felt welcome and cared for by that staff. If you are looking for a hidden charm that is tranquil and has all the amenities of any high-priced Hotel look no farther. Fumba has it all. The Spa is amazing and, the pool tranquil, the beach inviting and... More

My wife and I stayed here for a glorious week in early January and can thoroughly recommend it. Attentively managed by Edwin and the team, we stayed in a spacious lodge set in a beautiful wooded environment with direct access to the sea. We had great walks along the beach with minimal harassment from locals. The Lodge staff were great,... More

The cool thing about Fumba is that although it's on Zanzibar, about 30min south of crowded and touristy Stone Town, it is a tranquil and remote getaway. Fumba Beach Lodge has the best of everything - it's tucked away from the tourists and doesn't feel super-resorty, yet the service and amenities are on par with any fancy resort, while maintaining...
