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...

It is a real relaxing resort with swimming pool and good service, nice beach, pittoresque place to sit and read (in the baobob tree), really nice breakfast and dinner. At new years eve they surprised us with a special table on the... More

This is the most beautiful lodge I have ever seen! It is situated in a huge park full with exotic trees and animals. A monkey family paid us a visit and the youngsters came very close to us. The bungalows are huge and very nicely but simply decorated. The food could be better... This place is really worth the money... More

This place had a great atmosphere! The staff was really polite and always with a smile on the face. At dinner they played live music and the staff was dancing beside them. Great five course Swahili dinner and great breakfast. Nice rooms just by the beach or in the garden. Very smelly towels and sheets though. During night some of... More

Cannot rate Staff highly enough in this delightfully set lodge. Management leave much to be desired . And the rooms lacked some necessary equipment . The snorkelling trip and the crew were brilliant at looking after us. Good memories .

The Fumba Beach Lodge is situated along the Menai Bay in a marine park, south of Stone Town, Zanzibar. The bungalows are disseminated in a nice garden; some have a beautiful view on the ocean. The sunsets are amazing from here ! Many small places (patios in a big baobab-tree or wood platforms overlooking the sea) are very attractive to... More

Hard to fault this slice of heaven in southern Zanzibar. Rustic/chic high end safari type lodge accommodation,well away from the more touristy north of the island. Stayed last 3 days of an 11 day trip of Zanzibar... should have been longer. Fabulous in all ways, amazing lodge design and rooms, gorgeous infinity pool, location...lovely hosts, staff, food, and the peace... More
