We were a group of 6 people and came to Zanzibar to relax after a safari. I have never stayed at a place where the host was as caring and attentive as here (and I travel a lot). The food is amazing, the staff couldn't be better trained, the sunsets were beautiful so the cocktails tasted even better and there are short nature walks with the chance of spotting elephant shrews. The cottages are massive and very quiet with seating opportunities on the patio. We booked a diving excursion and the spice tour as well, which was great fun. Only the transfer to StoneTown we did not book via the lodge, as it it was about double the price than booking a transfer online. But you also gotta take into account that the lodge is very remote and it took quite a while to get there. Swimming in the ocean always involves walking quite a fair bit in the water, since it gets deep(er) very slowly. (Water shoes definitely a MUST - sharp corals and sea urchins). But to sum it up: For us it was the perfect end to our trip. Should I ever be travelling close by, I will definitely come back in a heartbeat.

If you are looking for a nice get-away, this is the place. It has direct beach access, but also its own pool. It is very spacious, so everybody can have their own privacy. The people are super friendly and hospitable. I would come back anytime.

We spent five nights at Fumba. It was absolutely perfect for us - quiet, friendly and very well-run. The lodges are rustic but well equipped and very spacious. The staff are wonderful, and can’t do enough for you. Excellent dive centre and beautiful beach. Plus, great entertainment from the monkeys who barrel through on a daily basis.

AMAZING! Accommodations, staff, food are all wonderful in a beautiful beach setting overlooking the Indian Ocean. So many activities you may choose- snorkeling is fantastic. No request is too much here. Everyone, from the General Manager to his Rhodesian Ridgeback, Chui, ensures that your stay is above and beyond. A beautiful pool, totally relaxing massage available on-site. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Happy, smiling staff to accommodate your every whim. Just go and enjoy Paradise in Fumba.
