Nice and relaxing lodge .Rooms are very nice and the staff is well trained and very helpful. Food was good and the drinks are fairly priced. Staff was always there to make sure you had everything you needed. The spa treatment was very good. Sunset was beautiful on the Indian Ocean.

A mixed experience. On the positive side: lovely spot, lodgings were very good, staff were friendly (we left some earrings there and they mailed them to us afterwards which was very kind). On the negative side, we found the food really bland, which is disappointing considering we were eating on the "spice island". Even the buffet of "local food" served... More

We stayed here for three nights and have never had more attentive staff anywhere. The food was good and the setting gorgeous with a great bar and decking set into a Baobab tree. The room was excellent with a sea view and a lovely beach where you could swim just before and after high tide. Otherwise there was also a... More

The overall experience was good but on check out we were shocked. After arriving at Zanzibar airport we went online to booking.com. We found this Fumba beach lodge for $85 per room online. We called and spoke to the manager and he said last minute deal $90 for us. So instead of booking online we went with the booking from... More

I stayed at the end of my Tanzania trip. I was a solo traveller & took the Tripadvisor reviewers advice and took the Baobab suite. You will not regret it. It was such a nice stay. I stayed in the closest Baobab suite to the Dhow bar - I can't remember the number. It was nice as a solo traveller... More
