We stayed here for 7 nights after our safari and it was excellent from the moment we stepped off the boat and were met by Ramon, the manager. All the staff were extremely helpful, friendly and really made our stay. The location is very secluded and peaceful, and a great place to unwind. The dive centre was extremely well run... More

Fundu Lagoon is the most beautiful, relaxing, luxurious and stunning place on earth. Perfect end to our honeymoon. After spending 5 days on Safari in the Masai Mara, we were looking forward to relaxing for 7 days, and that we did! Our welcome from Ramon and the rest of the staff was second to none. It felt surreal that we... More

Four days and nights of relaxing, relaxing, and more relaxing. Great Balinese masseurs, and wondefull sunsets by the Jetty. I wouldn't miss eating freshly caught fish and sea food for every meal. Can't wait for the next time I can come back!
