Condé Nast Traveller

The Fundu Lagoon resort is a remote and peaceful resort, only accessible by boat. Set on a beautiful beach in the south west of Pemba Island, the hotel is privately owned and run with a love for the natural environment that surrounds it. Wooden walkways and sandy paths lead to eighteen Makuti thatched tented rooms and suites. The atmosphere is tranquil and our attentive hotel staff will take care of your every need.

Fundu is an idyllic place to unwind and enjoy total peace and relaxation, whether it be lingering poolside or enjoying the spectacular sights of the Indian Ocean. On a beautiful beach fringed by natural forest, the hotel offers complete privacy and the experience is both restful and restorative. It is an ideal place to visit whether you are an independent traveller or looking for a honeymoon beach resort. It is also a favourite safari beach destination, the privacy and natural surroundings being a perfect place to relax after a safari in Kenya or Tanzania.

The hotel's main areas are open sided with thatch roofing. There are three bars, an excellent restaurant and a beautiful infinity pool, all designed to blend naturally with a unique East African setting. You will be kept comfortable by the soothing sea breezes and the multitude of ceiling fans in the rooms, all of which have breath-taking views of the Indian Ocean. The Fusion Spa has a range of exclusive treatments using specially formulated blends of local spices and, for the more active, there is the resort's fully equipped dive centre ready to take you out to explore the marine life on the surrounding coral reefs and deep drop offs.

Fundu Lagoon has everything you need to enjoy the Indian Ocean, from wakeboarding to windsurfing, kayaking or simply strolling along the peaceful shoreline where it is lovely to watch the Mamas and kids collecting clams or just passing by...if you are lucky, you might see the local fishermen bringing in their daily catch. Nearby there is a paradise beach at Misali Island, a short boat trip away and inside the protected marine conservation area. The only disturbance to these white sand beaches is by green and hawksbill turtles. It is an ideal and relaxing day out with palm trees fringing the white sands and offering shady picnic spots. The warm turqoise shallows are ideal for snorkelling amongst the brightly coloured reef fish.
