I echo recent reviews amazed at some of the comments regarding the staff and food here. Apart from the actual location, the staff and the food were the high points. It really is a lovely place and the majority of the reviews have given a very good description of what's on offer. I have a couple of points that are... More

Han sido tres días de descanso en el mas amplio sentido de la palabra. Las suites de Fundu son mas que especiales, y la tranquilidad que se respira no deja de impresionar. Todo el personal te trata de una forma muy especial, y tanto las comidas, como bebidas, y servicios en general con excelentes. Ojo, no se trata de un... More

So, prior to my trip I read reviews on Trip Advisor and anyone who wrote a negative comment must have been in a different location to us. I read that staff were surly - what a load of rubbish. The staff are all wonderful, they laugh with you and did everything they could to make our holiday everything we hoped.... More

We spent 6 idyllic nights at Fundu, at the start of November this year. There's no point in me repeating what others have said (so well) about the place itself - it's perfect. I've just read (with utter disbelief) what one sole reviewer has put on here regarding the staff and food (not a glowing report - 2nd August). The... More

Fundu Lagoon is beyond paradise. The resort is only accessibly by boat and was built into the island with as little disruption to the area as possible. The resort itself is beautiful, and the views from the resort over the ocean are unbelievable. The sunset over the water was like an event every night! We had a superior suite so... More

In short, this place is breathtaking. You arrive on a dock after taking a short boat ride over the turquoise water, greeted with delicious tropical drinks by a gracious host. My wife and I stayed in a beach side suite, which comes stocked with two fridges full of beverages and complimentary room service. We had a private pool, which would... More

We had the most fantastic 9 days at Fundu Lagoon, it was literally a honeymoon paradise and we didn't want to leave! Arriving on a speed boat, the location is stunning, the rooms are fantastic (we particularly recommend the Jungle Suite and a Superior Beach Suite) and the staff are absolutely brilliant. We were made to feel extremely welcome and... More

We had a blissful stay at Fundu Lagoon as everything runs so smoothly and is put together beautifully. Given the remoteness and difficulty in accessing proper goods, you realize that the management and owners have really nailed it down here to perfect this level of luxury. The place oozed comfort and chic-ness while surrounding you in stunning eco-camouflage design and... More

Stayed at Fundu Lagoon for two nights, really beautiful room and great view! Hannes, William and Liz, have an effortless way of making you feel special. Food was simple and in keeping to East Africa, service was incredible and genuine. Enjoyed lazing at the pool and the different eating areas. Didnt do any diving, but had a great massage from...

We came here after a trip to Kiimanjaro and a safari in Tanzania. I wasn't a big fan of the flight from Zanzibar to Pemba- the plane was tiny. When we arrived it was nice to be collected in a private speedboat- the ferry looked jam packed. We received a friendly welcome from the managers. The room and balcony were... More
