Fumba Beach Lodge, is situated on a very beautiful and secluded beach on the South West side of Zanzibar. Fumba is a luxurious and peaceful hideaway, offering a perfect blend of casual elegance and friendly, first class service.

Just 30 minutes southwest of Zanzibar’s historic capital, Stone Town, Fumba Beach Lodge is concealed well away from the busy tourist areas, making it the perfect venue for enjoying the peace and tranquility of this tropical island paradise.

Fumba Beach Lodge is situated in Menai Bay, which has been dedicated as a conservation area since 1998 due to its outstanding natural beauty. Established by the World Wildlife Federation (WWF), Menai Bay Conservation Area was designed to give Zanzibaris in the Fumba area a vested interest in their environment so they will protect it. The project is aimed at teaching villagers how to conserve their natural heritage, and how to profitably exploit it in a sustainable manner. Eco-tourism plays an important role in that profitability and Fumba Beach Lodge is the first and only lodge offering accommodation on the pristine Fumba Peninsula.

Spa Facilities

Baobab Spa

The spa is one of a kind, built under and around a magnificent Baobab tree, with a combination of Zanzibari style and modern elegance. Choose from aromatherapy massage to invigorate you, or hot stone therapy to help relieve aching muscles. Body scrubs infused with spices of Zanzibar, vanilla, ylang ylang, and gingers will leave your skin soft, smooth and ready to soak up the sun.

The Jacuzzi

is built into the Baobab tree itself. Shaded by rustling leaves, and overlooking the lush landscape, you can ask for whatever you want: a romantic shared bath with champagne under the night skies, a day time soak, or a solitary scrub.

Further Notes

Fumba Beach Lodge offers good value for money. Coming from safari, you will feel right at home as the lodge style and character is being continued… just this time right at the beach.

Lots of little outside nooks and corners invite for chilling out and romantic dinners. The feel is secluded, rustic yet elegant and uniquely tropical. A beautiful Dhow bar is perfectly located to enjoy the sunsets. A real treat are the two Baobab Suites, which are very spacious and built around the giant trees. The lodge is owner-managed which is generally a big plus.
