Fundu Lagoon

Explore Tanzania

Only accessible by plane or boat, Fundu Lagoon offers a wonderful Island escape, with barefoot luxury and remote empty beaches the norm. Found on Pemba Island's south west coast, this tranquil hotel naturally dissolves into the surrounding foliage, with the 18 tented bungalows peeking out from behind the trees. Aside from a relaxing ambience, the resort's traditionally styled accommodation and some of world's premier diving spots, also recommend it.

Accommodation offers excellent views and provides a charming veranda on which to sit and take in the beautiful surroundings. The canvas walls of the tents, which boast wooden floors, add a layer of authenticity to a stay here and guests can expect rooms to exude a traditional tented safari feel. En suite bathrooms are present in all rooms as are comfortable lounge areas. An additional bed, to the double or twin already present, can be provided upon request.

Fundu Lagoon's Fusion Spa offers a wide variety of treatments, and the property's dive centre is perfect for discovering the coral reefs around the island. There is a phenomenal diversity of colourful sea life that calls the surrounding waters home, diving with them is an incredible experience. The main area provides a charming restaurant, free WiFi in the reception area and an infinity pool.

This place is a dream come true for a honeymoon. I can't think of anything at all that I would change. Amazing food, wonderful staff, and a perfect remote location. With only a handful of hotels on the island, this is a secret gem and we applaud Jamie and Mahlatini for finding it. The capstone on an amazing honeymoon adventure.

After a week of southern circuit safari Fundu Lagoon was just perfect for a bit of tropical island relaxation on our honeymoon. From the moment you arrive at the end of the jetty by boat to the moment you board the boat again to leave you are very well looked after. Firstly, the place is so beautifully designed - sand pathways, wooden decking, thatched buildings and tented accommodation all built into the jungle with minimal environmental impact. Rather than clearing large trees when bulding the place, they simply built around the trees. There was even a huge tree growing through the roof of our suite! The structures have all clearly been built by hand using local raw materials, but there are plenty of luxuries too (such as plunge pools in the suites). The bar, restaurant and pool areas are all really well-designed, with great views of the beach and surrounding jungle. We stayed in two bungalows: a beachside room and the jungle suite. The first was really good - right on the beach and with a small balcony with a sea view. But the jungle suite was just incredible! The 'room' itself is exactly the same, as the tents are the same size. But it is not the room that is important really, it is the lounging area on the deck next to the room which makes the difference. You get a huge wooden decked area with a two storey 'lounge area' for chilling out or having room service meals. There is also a a large plunge pool, sun loungers and a hammock big enough for two. The whole suite is surrounded by jungle, and is accessed by a winding path, so it is really private, but you still have a view of the sea from the lounging deck. The food was always really good, and sometimes great! The Swahili nights were good fun and the private dinner on the beach on the last night was incredible! Hannes does such a fantastic job of running the place, and really personalises the experience.
