Located on Pemba Island, around 130 kilometres offshore from the main Zanzibar Island, Fundu Lagoon is truly remote and intimate beach haven.
Accessible by air or sea, Fundu Lagoon is a privately-owned boutique hotel set right on the beach, overlooking the dazzling blue ocean.
Hidden within lush jungle and surrounded by exquisite sea life, this exclusive hideaway provides a luxurious escape from the crowds, on an island of idyllic treasures.
You'll adore your stay in one of the 18 tented safari-style bungalows, and you'll spend your mornings waking up to the trilling of birds, the hum of the ocean, or even the sound of cheeky monkeys playing on the terrace.
Take a stroll along the beach to spot hermit crabs on the shore, or venture out into the ocean to snorkel with colourful shoals of fish and wild dolphins. You can go kayaking, deep-sea fishing, or venture out on a tailored scuba diving excursion around Misali Island.
Roam the beautiful island with a walk along the mangrove coast, or a gorgeous sunset dhow cruise. Relax in the hotel with a swim in the infinity swimming pool or a pampering at the luxurious Fundu Fusion Spa.
You'll work up an appetite exploring your surroundings, and the cuisine at Fundu Lagoon is another heavenly treat. The menu features a delicious fusion of Swahili and international cuisine, all produce is locally sourced, and you can enjoy your meals poolside or beachside.
The onsite Jetty Bar prepares refreshing cocktails for you to enjoy as you take in the panoramic views. Weather permitting, the resort organises a weekly beach seafood barbecues and a bonfire under the stars.
A sandy paradise that anyone will love for a remote, barefoot getaway.
