Chumbe Island is such a magical place that is an example of how luxury can also be sustainable. The island is gorgeous and the coral reef is one of kind. I would highly recommend staying here for two nights. The bungalows are something out of a film and the beaches provide a perfect place to sit and enjoy the view. Though the view was amazing, the food was almost better. The staff was extremely friendly and was kindly shared their knowledge of sustainability and coral care and rehabilitation. One thing to note is that the boat ride into the island was an adventure, so one night might seem too short to have to do it all again the next day.

This is an exceptional example of conservation and tourism. My stay here has been excellent enjoying the beauty of the place and the knowledge and welcoming nature of the staff. I cannot recommend coming here enough. Do try to stay overnight also since it really enhances the experience.

This is paradise!! Quiet with a cap of 18 guests. Wonderful meals with nice variety on the deck looking out over the ocean. Snorkeling was fantastic over the coral reef. Even a great night hike to see coconut crabs with a very knowledgeable guide.

This is the best place to go to in Zanzibar if you have the time and money. We had an amazing stay. Wish we could stay longer! Staff is amazing. Vera gave us a very warm welcome and made us feel right at home. We enjoyed everything the island had to offer: the bungalow was awesome, the food was amazing, the island walk was very interesting, snorkeling was the best on the island. We have seen numerous coconut crabs and to top it off we had a midnight snorkeling tour. Unbelievable. So many great memories from our stay. Well worth the money!

This is an incredible place to stay, spending a few night here helps you understand the fragile balance of nature. All the staff are so dedicated to the conservation of this island's environment and to spare with you their work. It is so peaceful and the huts are amazing. I loved it!
