Fundu Lagoon is located to the southwest of Pemba Island off of the coast of Tanzania. Pemba is one hop further than Zanzibar, and as a result the number of visitors drops dramatically and the sense of adventure climbs considerably.
A stay at Fundu Lagoon is all about making the most of this virtually untouched and very beautiful island, exploring the forests and villages on foot, sailing the myriad deserted coral islands, diving and snorkeling.
There are 18 rooms, consisting of canvas tents set under makuti (thatch) roofs on wooden decks, all with views over the sea. The rooms are equipped with large double or twin beds, mosquito nets, ceiling and standing fans, and indoor and outdoor seating areas. Each has an ensuite bathroom with fresh hot water shower, toilet and basin.
Two of the eighteen rooms are suites, with their own private chill out deck and plunge pool, and four are superior suites which also have an extensive indoor and outdoor lounge space and mezzanine platform.
The rooms are connected to the main buildings by wooden walkways or paths through indigenous forest. Some rooms are situated along the beachfront and the remaining on the hillside. All have amazing views, especially the ones on the hillside.
There are 4 categories of rooms, from bungalows to superior suites. All suites have private plunge pools. The superior suites offer more spacious accommodation, including 2 private terraces and a super-sized plunge pool.
The main hotel is built under thatch and is large and airy and overlooks the sea. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served in the main dining area or at the jetty bar with a three course lunch and dinner, all with a choice of dishes of international standard. Some meals will be served on the white sandy beach. There are three bars, one of which is situated a third of the way along a long jetty which stretches way out into the sea.
Fundu Lagoon is the epitome of a barefoot paradise, with a distinct Robinson Crusoe air in a remote and peaceful location. It is a place for guests to relax and unwind in casual, yet stylish surroundings. For the ultimate in relaxation and stress relief you can visit the spa treatment room where a variety of massage and beauty therapies are available.
The hotel has a fully equipped dive center, and trips are available to nearby Misali Island with a pristine beach and superb snorkeling and diving. Dhow sunset cruises and canoe safaris through the mangroves are also available. Excursions around Pemba island can also be organized with some advanced notice.
