Yes its a long way to get there - we were in Selous on safari so it was plane to Dar then plane to Zanzibar
before plane to Pemba then car to Mikoni and finally boat. We were in a hillside room so we then also had a
climb up a steep hill ( made me feel incredibly unfit ). We were met by Lisa when we arrived and were
guided along the jetty to the jetty bar for a refreshing drink before completing brief reception details
then being escorted to our room. The view was fantastic and our room/tent had everything we needed
and was very luxurious. We went back to the jetty bar to enjoy a cocktail while watching the
sunset - fantastic doesn't begin to describe the sunsets. Dinner was up by the pool the 1st night ( up
another big hill ) - not a huge selection but incredible but everything was very good. We also enjoyed dinner in the
main restaurant plus on the jetty unfortunately there was no beach bbq while we were there becuase of some
weather. The deserts especially were great.
We met up with the dive team on the 1st night and arranged to dive the next morning - a very
civilised 9am start ( after the 1st morning an even more civilised 9:15) - most of you kit is taken
to the boat and its just a case of putting your wetsuit on and walking along the jetty with mask & fins.
Its also best to take sunscreen/hat since even if just going for 1 dive you will stop off on Misali
for a drink & relax before returning to the hotel. If you are doing 2 dives then lunch/surface interval spent on Misali with
an 'picnic' lunch ( basically a selection of the hotel lunch cooled & in
tupperwares with a tabelcloth, proper cutlery & napkins ).
diving was done off Misali while we were there and its the best coral we have ever ever encountered.
Fundu was a great experience and some of the design details are amazing - the holders for shower
gel/shampoo just at the right level for access. The 'drum for attention' sign & drum at reception particularly made me laugh. And of course all the staff are fantastic
We went to the pool on several afternoons and were often the only people there apart from staff ( & occaisionally the monkeys )
I can't recommend too highly
