fundu lagoon

Fundu Lagoon is on Pemba Island, the sister island to Zanzibar lying across the Pemba Channel to the north. The lodge is situated on a remote and beautiful beach on the south western side of the island and is only accessible by boat.

accommodation

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. All suites have private plunge pools. The superior suites offer more spacious accommodation, including 2 private terraces and a super-sized plunge pool.

8 Hillside rooms (standard bungalows)
These rooms are located on the hillside, and enjoy privacy, as well as panoramic views of the Indian Ocean and a cooling breeze.
Decks have recently been extended to accommodate two chairs and two sun loungers. There is a fridge and safe in the room.

4 Beachfront rooms (standard bungalows)
These rooms are allocated on the beach, so guests can stroll straight from their bungalow onto the beach. Each bungalow has two sun loungers at the front, on the beach - as well as a small private deck. There is a fridge and safe in the room.

1 Beach Suite
Situated right on the beach, this bungalow has extensive private deck with elevated seated area for relaxing /reading and a plunge pool. There is a fridge and safe in the room, as well as room service.

1 Jungle Suite
Same as the Beach suite but slightly set back from the beach among the mangroves, with great privacy. The Jungle Suite has an extensive private deck with elevated seated area for relaxing /reading and plunge pool.There is a fridge and safe in the room, as well as room service.

4 Superior Suites
The ultimate! These extensive suites (9m x 6m) offer deluxe accommodation, incorporating a stylish bedroom and open plan lounge. The spacious outside deck area is perfect for intimate dining and you have the option of cooling down in the huge plunge pool. All suites have a stone walled bathroom with double sink and shower. There is a fridge and safe in the room, as well as room service.

the lodge

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 "bare foot 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 treatment room where a variety of massage and beauty therapies are available.

getting there

The main means of visiting Pemba Island are by light aircraft charter or schedule flight. There is also a ferry service, but this is not always reliable. The only airport is Chake Chake in the centre of the Island, and the main port used by the ferry service is Mkoani in the south-west. After arriving at the airport there is a short vehicle ride to Wesha Port on a newly built bitumen road which takes approximately 20 minutes. A private speedboat will then transfer you from Wesha Port to Fundu Lagoon (20-25 minutes). There is no useable road access.

The best weather is between December and March and again from July to early November, with the optimum months being July through to September.

diving and activities

The hotel has a fully equipped dive centre, ‘Dive 7/10’. Trips are available to nearby Misali Island with a pristine beach and superb snorkelling and diving. Dhow sunset cruises and canoe safaris through the mangroves are also available. Excursions around Pemba island can also be organised with some advanced notice.

Fundu also has a stunning infinity hillside swimming pool with a cocktail and snack bar overlooking the ocean!
