Ideally situated on the paradise island of Pemba, near Zanzibar, and among the most stylish resorts in Africa, Fundu Lagoon has a beautiful beach, and access to world class diving and snorkelling in Pemba’s dedicated marine reserve.
Accommodation is in eighteen detached safari-style luxury cabins with large balconies, tented sleeping areas and en suite bathrooms. Each cabin feels very private, has an uninterrupted view to the Indian Ocean and is just a few feet away from the beach.
The main building comprises the restaurant, bar, lounge and an outside sun deck with infinity pool. Meals are served a la carte and feature both international and local cuisine and, of course, plenty of seafood. Importantly, most of the produce is sourced from local farmers and fishermen. Other facilities include a TV room and free Wi-Fi at reception.
A selection of interesting activities is offered at Fundu including a worthwhile visit to one of the friendly local villages. The on site PADI Dive Centre offers daily excursions to dive at exciting spots in the Pemba channel where large deep sea fish can be seen, and on the diverse reef systems around Misali Island.
There are a number of bars around the property including one along the jetty; perfect for a sunset drink. Fundu Lagoon has plenty to offer those looking for a romantic and intimate island experience after an exciting safari, and is very popular with honeymooners.
Restaurant, bars, swimming pool, PADI dive centre, laundry service, safety deposit box, TV room and free Wi-Fi (reception only).
Large pelagic fish such as marlin, sailfish, dorado, barracuda and kingfish can be seen in the Pemba Channel while over 40 genera of coral and 400 species of fish are found in the shallower waters and reef systems of Misali Island. With luck, whale sharks, manta rays, turtles, humpback whales, and bottlenose and spinner dolphins can also be seen.
Scuba diving, snorkelling and boat trips to the pristine beaches of Misali Island.
Don’t rule out travelling during the rainy season. Rainfall can be surprisingly light at the coast and that season offers some of the best conditions for diving. The lodge often has some great discounts and special offers at this time. There are often great honeymoon offers throughout the year so please ask us for details.

Fundu Lagoon is an exceptional property. It was very quiet due to being low season, but that was not a problem to us and the management were extremely friendly and sociable. We rated the diving very highly, and all the staff throughout the hotel were lovey. Food also a very high standard.
