Fundu Lagoon Lodge

Fundu Lagoon Lodge

Fundu Lagoon is a small, private hotel located on a beautiful mangrove-fringed beach on the southwestern shores of Pemba Island, part of the Zanzibar ‘Spice Island’ archipelago. Pemba lies to the north of its larger and better-known sister island, Unguja, and here you will find natural peace and tranquility.

Remote and private, Fundu Lagoon is situated by a sandy beach on the liminal fringes where the jungle meets the ocean and is only accessible by boat. The hotel has a range of twelve private hillside and beachfront suites and wonderful communal spaces that include four bars, a jetty, a fusion spa, a stunning infinity pool, five-star dive facilities, and a spacious open-sided restaurant serving a wide range of delicious cuisine.

Fundu Lagoon combines luxury alongside a distinctly Robinson Crusoe atmosphere. Pemba Island remains undeveloped mainly and lives up to its ‘Spice Island’ nickname, with the scent of cloves perfuming the air. Bush babies, flying foxes, and vervet monkeys all call Pemba home, while in the ocean, dolphins, tuna, and a magical underwater world of coral reefs and steep ocean drop-offs enchant and amaze.

Fundu Lagoon consistently wins the Good Safari Guide ‘Best Marine Safari’ Award, smoothly continuing the holiday experience for guests who arrive from a Tanzania Safari. It is an ideal destination for friends, couples, and families seeking a place to unwind and switch off in romantic and peaceful surroundings.
