We had the most amazing hospitality while staying at Fundu Lagoon last October. We were there for 4 nights following a wonderful safari in Northern Tanzania. Our teen girls also loved the experience and enjoyed the natural setting and surroundings. Fundu is an understated resort on a beautiful beach on Pemba island. It is surrounded by palm trees and hidden...

Unusually for us we decided to return to this former holiday destination as we had had such an amazing time last year. We were not disappointed - indeed our expectations from previously were exceeded as not only was everything as lovely and brilliantly run as last time , everyone remembered us (and I mean everyone) and made us feel like...

After a flight, taxi ride and boat trip to arrive at this luxurious resort in the Spice Island of Pemba is amazing. Welcomed from the first step nothing is too much trouble for the very smiley staff.

The lodge is accessible only by boat (about a 15 min boat trip from the dock), but before you have a 45 min drive from the local airport. It pays off when you see the beach and you start to distinguish the rooms amongst the vegetation. The lodge is spread out through the beach and hillside, so depending on your...

Built using local timber and materials, the first impressions of the lodge are of a "Robinson Crusoe" style island hideout. What becomes clear very quickly though is that he never had it this good. Nestled on a secluded shoreline, these luxury permanent 'tented' suites are all unique and well appointed within the lodge, some hidden in the jungle above and...
