What originally started out as an untamed beach paradise made up of ocean, jungle and beach soon blossomed into an inspired, luxury hotel, which has carefully kept the natural setting and landscape as untouched and protected as possible. Today, Fundu Lagoon is a top-class, sustainably minded private boutique resort that aims to provide an unforgettable experience, all while benefiting its guests and the local island and its people.
Fundu Lagoon is as luxurious and beautiful as boutique beach resorts come – yet this resort has managed to keep local communities and this precious natural environment front and centre of everything they do, as they give back in a big, meaningful way.
What’s more, over the years, Fundu Lagoon has consistently raked in travel awards, as experts and guests alike rate it highly for its amazing retreat offerings, marine safari experience and much more.
In terms of accommodation, Fundu Lagoon has an excellent range of offerings to choose from. Our hillside accommodation, which tantalising overlooks the balmy Indian Ocean, is enclosed by tropical trees and shrubs that set the tone for its natural look and feel.
While Fundu Lagoon is regrettably not suitable to children under 12, we offer a special experience for its guests and provides them with a choice of standard rooms, suite facilities or superior suites.
No matter which accommodation offering you pick, you are assured double or twin beds, with the superior suites able to accommodate two additional beds, when required.
And with the beach and ocean mere steps away from the accommodation, guests can enjoy a truly memorable island escape, with all possible creature comforts and hotel luxuries afforded to them.
In terms of on-site facilities, Fundu Lagoon has it all. We have a dreamy infinity pool (set into the hillside above the hotel to capitalise on the sweeping views); a lovely Fusion Spa, where guests can enjoy an intimate, revitalising spa experience and a wide variety of spa treatments (think: Shiatsu and Thai massages; delicious body scrub treatments; Fundu natural facials; manicures and pedicures and more); excellent East African cuisine and more.
In fact, Fundu Lagoon offers some of the best East African cuisine and delicacies that you will encounter anywhere. Our chefs provide guests with a choice of the finest dishes, which creatively draw from different Arabic, Swahili, colonial and Indian influences.
You can enjoy private dining, beach barbeques, tasty picnics (perfect for island excursions and beach walks) and of course, three-course meals served (for lunch and dinner) in the hotel’s main restaurant, a cool, expansive space that enjoys incredible ocean views.
If you like to mix things up a bit, we also offer four popular bars, each equipped with a range of wines, cocktails, beers, and fresh, wholesome juices to complement your carefree holiday mood.
Our Jetty Bar is a great place to sit and soak up the local scenery – especially as guests can enjoy watching the dhows and local fisherman sailing by or savour incredible sunsets from their seats.
Our main bar, meanwhile, is ideal for a soothing nightcap, as it is located within the main hub of Fundu Lagoon hotel.
These are just some of the attractions and stunning offerings that Fundu Lagoon – and of course, Pemba Island at large – offer guests keen to enjoy a bit of East African beach paradise.
