It's a few weeks since we returned home, but the aferglow of being on Medjumbe remains with us. Nothing is too much trouble, the staff did anything to make the stay better. The food is splendid, and not just great seafood. Wine is excellent, with a good choice of nice wines from South Africa. We ate at different locations most... More

We found this hotel just by chance googling for a special retreat in the Indiam Ocean. I saw the pictures and find it was simply amazing but I was surprised that one month before New Year's Eve, they still have vacancies. So we went with some doubts but we couldn't have had a better surprise! The hotel just went under... More

We have just spent our second consecutive Christmas on Medjumbe. We had a few niggles on our 2014 visit but not enough to prevent a return this December. This year no complaints; we had a wonderful time. In the course of 2015 the beach side villas have been redecorated and renovated with new bathroom / shower fittings, new air-conditioning and...

We have visited Medjumbe before and will go again. It is a unique island, beautiful and peaceful and tiny. We love to swim, read and relax and enjoy peace away from our busy working days.

The location is just perfect. A full sensation of staying in an island surrounded by the blue and green Indic ocean. The hotel/ villas are not the last concept in terms of architecture lines and amenities could be improved, but this is fully balance by: comfortable villas (cozy, with enough privacy and wonderful bed), outstanding staff, fully committed to provide...
