You might think there's not much to do on this speck of land emerging from turquoise waters, but relax and be idle. Well, nothing of the kind, we didn't have time to open our books... We were much too busy experiencing the place, following the changing tides, visiting the coral reef, enjoying the everchanging light, getting to know the living... More

We had an absolutely amazing time at Medjumbe Island! We both lost our hearts on this pristine and magical little island. The staff (always smiling) was wonderful and willing to go that extra mile in everything that they did. Special thanks to Karen and Jason that made all the difference. We would not have asked or dreamed of a more... More

What's not to love abut this place? Beautiful views that you constantly sigh upon and keep saying how divine it is, yummy food, and lovely people! We had the entire island to ourselves for most of our stay - we were thrilled that they didn't target mass market tourism. The staff greeted us with smiles all the time were were... More

No doubt a paradise on earth. The beauty of the island is amazing, the lodge is fantastic and the way we are treated by Karen and her entire team, from the moment we landed, is simply divine. It was certainly the best way to celebrate Valentine's Day, Romanticism prevailed. A note to the SPA and the excellent work of Joanne,... More

I found Medjumbe island to be truly exquisite, and the 6 days we spent there were really idyllic in every sense of the word. From the moment we touched down to the moment we regretfully left we were welcomed and treated with warmth, charm and friendship by Karen, Jason and Joanne and the rest of the Staff. Our group, consisting... More

This hotel is a hidden treasure. A 45 minutes flight from Pemba to this wonderful little island. Has only 12 Villas, so you are most by yourself to relax and enjoy the ocean, sunbathing and great sun sets. The employees are very friendly. In the evening there is a great seafood set menu. The Lodge Managers Karen and Jason are... More

Medjumbe is a gorgeous small island with an amazing natural and human ambient. Best place for relax and romance. Open bar and a great gourmet food chief. At night has the most fantastic starry sky I've ever seen. Note: my decription is based on a holiday I have done in August 2010 (not 2013)

I was a beneficiary of the storm which damaged the Matemo Resort, and I have to say I couldn't have been luckier. Medjumbe is a stunningly beautiful location, but what really makes this a wonderful destination is the service. The staff are friendly without being obsequious, attentive without being intrusive. Snorkeling reef a short boat ride from the island is... More

It takes a bit of getting to, but well worth it! My wife and I went here for our honeymoon for a week in 2011, and just loved it! The beach is stunning, with a long thin stretch of sand that stretches out at one end which is the perfect spot for watching the sunset. The rooms and food were... More
