Fundu Lagoon was a wonderful place to recuperate after a week on safari. It's a beautiful location with great food and staff. Every evening was different - starting with a delicious cocktail looking out over the Indian Ocean before heading off for dinner in different locations - the beach barbecue and dancing on the wharf were particularly memorable. The rooms... More

We thought the hotel was amazing however had to cut our trip short there as we could not sleep in the extreme heat. The tent style rooms made the bedroom area much hotter than the outside low of 28 degrees c. We were sad to leave as such a small change like putting in an air conditioning unit would have... More

What an awesome place. We spent an idyllic Xmas here in Dec. the facilities are great, the staff amazing and the diving exceptional. It is rare to get all three in our experiences in East Africa. The dive sites off Pemba are pristine - the most amazing corals and fish imaginable. Fil who runs the dive centre and leads the... More

I have never been anywhere more incredible! Me and my, now, husband decided an English church wedding was just not our cup of tea... So after lengthy chats and scouring the Internet we found Fundu lagoon. Although neither of us had been to Zanzibar, let alone Pemba, we decided to take the risk and book it up exclusively for all...

Fundu Lagoon came highly recommend but we knew very little of what to expect until arrival. In short this could not have been a more special, fun and romantic honeymoon. If you like surprises then just book it and stop reading now. I could not suggest visiting more strongly. If you feel like taking it slow, the facilities are incredibly... More

It is really refreshing to come across accommodation like Fundu Lagoon which has been built around forest instead of on top of it, preserving it for the creatures who inhabit as well as the people who live on the island. We loved the monkeys in the tree and lemurs on the balcony as well as the bare foot, laid back... More

We arrived at Fundu after a week and a half of safaris in Tarangire NP, the Ngorongoro crater and Serengeti. Fundu was the perfect way to unwind and relax after the adventure of the previous couple of weeks. We had no idea what to expect after landing at the Pemba airport.
