The lodge is accessible only by boat (about a 15 min boat trip from the dock), but before you have a 45 min drive from the local airport. It pays off when you see the beach and you start to distinguish the rooms amongst the vegetation. The lodge is spread out through the beach and hillside, so depending on your...

Thank you so much for your review of your recent stay with us at Fundu Lagoon. I am so pleased that you both enjoyed your holiday with us, and your description of the last bit of the journey by boat when the rooms and hotel start to emerge amongst the vegetation is spot on.

Built using local timber and materials, the first impressions of the lodge are of a "Robinson Crusoe" style island hideout. What becomes clear very quickly though is that he never had it this good. Nestled on a secluded shoreline, these luxury permanent 'tented' suites are all unique and well appointed within the lodge, some hidden in the jungle above and...

After a very early flight from Dar es Salaam, you are picked up at the airport by friendly Mussa, driven across Pemba (the cloves, vanilla and cinnamon island), put on a fast boat and then...you see it, the long wooden peer where Ramon, the managing director awaits for you to greet you.

Fundu Lagoon is a remote hideaway that takes some getting to, but if you want quiet relaxation this could be the place for you. Tented rooms are good, but if you can stretch to it go for the suites for space. Standard rooms are OK, but small and we had a smelly drain in the shower (avoid room 13 which...

Thank you for your review of your recent stay at Fundu Lagoon. I am glad that you felt that our 'remote hideaway' (good description!) was worth the long journey once you arrived.

Great location. The way the resort has been built to hide amongst the trees means that the natural beauty of the area is not disturbed. The views were lovely, especially of the sunset. We had a hillside room, but still had a lovely view of the sea framed by all the trees from our balcony. The food was overall good,...
