We had a 4 nights stay in Zanzibar after our safari in Tanzania. The place is lovely, amazing tropical garden with butterflies and monkeys, etc. The resort is by the Ocean and the view is amazing! it is not possible to swim on the beach though unless you have special shoes on beacuse of the sea urchins and the stones....

spent 2 nights at this gorgeous place - only 30 mins south of Stone Town - would love to have stayed 2 weeks. Amazing views, ambience, food , service, rooms. Even tried kite surfing when the southerly trade blew in and the tide was in. Those seeking an authentic Zanzibar experience with a relaxed a friendly atmosphere with a touch... More

We loved this place. We stayed for the second week of our honeymoon having toured Kenya on safari for the first week. Suffice to say we wanted pure relaxation..... A couple of blips - firstly our transfer had not been booked despite email confirmation. This was annoying as we landed on Zanziber at 9pm and after waiting for about an... More

Fumba Lodge is a nice hotel located on the beach; the perfect place to relax if you've done a safari We were very happy to get a lodge with lots of privacy and facing the sea, as requested. It's a pity that the maintenance of the room and other facilities is not up to date: the walls need to be... More

We stayed in Fumba Beach Lodge after a safari week in Tanzania. This place could be heaven on earth but there are a few smaller things that need attention. So I try to give my honest comments so each can decide for himself. Accomodation : very nice, real Robinson Crusoe style, but here and there a bit of paint is... More

We were unsure about staying at Fumba because of previous reviews that we read on Trip Advisor. However, we were pleasantly surprized and would higly recommend staying here. The rooms very lovely and the food and service were good. Four years ago I went snorkelling in this area with a company based in Stone Town and was very disappointed with... More

JAMBO!!! We have been at Fumba Beach Lodge this August 2014, and the experience has been great. The atmosphere, the people, the lodges, and above all, the food. We have enjoyed like nothing their food!!! Beach is quite surprising for us, as the sea "comes and goes", but apart from this, all has been 100% satisfactory. It is really a... More

Had a real good time there. Very quiet and peaceful. Food is great, staffs always smiling and wiling to help. Diving there with Mag and her team was amazing, a nice experience diving on a Dhow. Its the perfect place to relax.

Calling it a beach lodge is misleading, since it has a very small beach, and not a nice one. Yes, it is by the sea, and if you got a sea front room, you can hear the sea all night, but it has no beach, you are essentially confined to the small pool area, always very crowded (secure your pool...

Omg, what a peaceful place for honeymooners. I just love this place. The owners Kirsten and Tracy are down-to-earth and serviceminded couple, and so was the rest of staff. I was sad to leave this place. At first, i was a bit worried because this wasnt a 5-star place. The food is absolutely amazing, and I will recommend this place... More
