We had a 4-night stay here at this wonderful place. From the moment we arrived to the second that we left nothing was too much trouble for any of the management or staff. We had the most fantastic view from our room - straight on to the beach and tidal sea - room 9 is a must!

Get comfy and grab a drink because this will probably end up being quite a lengthy review... So first and foremost I have only ever written one review on Trip Advisor because I believe that only the best places deserve them. But Fumba Beach Lodge and Safari Blue (separate review) both whole heartedly deserve one. We stayed there on our... More

Fumba Beach Lodge was far and away one of our favourite places to stay in Africa. We were in room number 8, which is spacious, clean, and has large sliding doors that open onto the beach, with a beautiful view of the sea. The staff were friendly and accomodating, and we were given a refreshing coconut to drink and a... More

A short trip from stone-town on a good road. To be met by an ``infinity-view pool`` adjacent to a superb Baobab deck overlooking the ocean. Great breakfast, great 5 course dinner (don`t be scared to try the diversity) and just an all round chilled environment.My girlfriend frolicked for hours in the pool and I read and relaxed on the comfortable...

Very nice Resort in a big park. Bungalows are not too close to each other and give enough privacy. We have been upgraded to a Baobab Suite, which is a wonderful experience. Food was good and staff attentive. Beach is not picture perfect, but you can swim in the sea.
