The perfect hideaway for couples, families or others - you will fall in love with the atmosphere and the rustic designs. Look forward to the 5 course dinners - in various spots - also go for a walk around - the tropical gardens and the short but cozy butterfly walk is highly recommended.

We did not have the opportunity of staying at the lodge, but were given a tour of the rooms and they had a lovely atmosphere and privacy. We took their snorkelling and island visit excursion on a dhow. The crew and Tammy were very friendly and even added a trip to the sandbar as a suprise. After great snorkelling we... More

Stayed solo for three nights. Very nice place - beautiful gardens and pool area, beach (even if swimming is only possible at high tide and with protective shoe wear), restaurant. Bungalows are simple but very pretty - only things missing are better mattress and linens as well as AC to keep away the mosquitoes.But the little veranda and hammock are... More

This is a really nice place for people, who like to relax and feel at home in a calm, beautiful holiday hotel. We read the reviews here and expected less, but staying at Fumba Beach really surprised us with an warm, easy going atmosphere. The hotel might not be the fanciest on the island, but it has charm and is... More

We stayed here recently and really loved it. We got the Baobab Suite, usually reserved for honeymooners, but we were glad to have it for a few days. Firstly, the thatched cottage has an outside jungle bathroom, set around a 1,000 year old baobab tree, which really has to be seen to be believed. Sitting on the balcony which overlooks... More

This really is a relaxing spot, and the hotel is perfect for winding down. Decor is simple and traditional rather than modern, but not to the point of pastiche. The food is really very good. The seafood in particular is sensational. There are no phones or TVs, and the (fast, complimentary) wifi doesn't work all the time, but this is... More

My partner and I stayed here for 5 days in January as part of a mini Zanzibar tour. I'll start with the positives! On arrival we were impressed, the location was good, the views were great and the local staff (Karim especially) were really polite and helpful. Our room was clean and opened right out onto the beach. It really... More

A fantastic stay in a well run and comfortable hotel on the water. Away from the more crowded coasts and only 30 minutes from the airport and Stonetown, this is the place you want to be if you need to unwind and decompress. There are no TV's or telephones to bother you (although a fast and complimentary Wifi hotspot is... More
