Remote and peaceful, Fundu Lagoon has a distinct Robinson Crusoe air with charming rustic buildings nestling on the shore of the Indian Ocean, shaded by thatched roofs made from sundried coconut palms. While crowds flock to Zanzibar, few have heard of the Pemba island, her little sister to the north, which remains largely undeveloped. Living up to the ‘Spice Islands’ nickname, cloves form a major part of the local economy. Magic is also embedded in the culture, with ju-ju witch doctors providing medicine and social cohesion. Only accessible by boat, the resort extends along a natural beach, where the lush jungle meets the sea. Fundu Lagoon’s staff are almost all from the local villages and bush babies, vervet monkeys and dolphins also call Pemba home. Whether relaxing by the infinity pool, wandering along the shore and watching local women collect seaweed for the beauty industry, kayaking through the mangroves or admiring the pristine coral gardens around nearby Misali island, days here can be as relaxed or fun-filled as you make them. A consistent winner of the Good Safari Guide ‘Best Marine Safari’ Award, Fundu Lagoon smoothly continues the safari experience for those arriving from the bush, as well as being a standalone destination for couples seeking a romantic bolthole or families and friends seeking a place to unwind and switch off.

Fundu Lagoon was the final stop of our honeymoon and we certainly finished on a high! We were very kindly upgraded to a beach suite room, which really did add a special touch to our stay. The hotel is spotless and each member of staff so kind and accommodating. The surroundings are breathtakingly beautiful and sipping a margarita on the jetty as the sunset, before dinner on the beach, was heaven!

A huge thank you to the whole team for looking after us. From start to finish our entire stay was a dream. If you want to ditch the wifi and walk straight into the Indian Ocean from your room, we highly recommend Fundu Lagoon.

I'm a little delayed writing this review, but in doing so have been transported back to a glorious few days, in the most stunning location. Fundu Lagoon certainly did not disappoint. Our arrival by speed boat was great fun, and we received a warm welcome from Hannes. We'd booked the hillside tents, and were thrilled to be offered an upgrade to beachside accommodation, which was just beautiful. By the time we'd unpacked, it was time for a late lunch, which was delicious, although enormous (we didn't make it for our evening meal that night, which is pretty unheard of!) After a little snooze on the balcony, we rallied around to meet our friends at the sunset bar! Such a beautiful setting, we really did feel like we were a million miles from anywhere and so relaxed. Sitting on the decking early morning, watching the visiting Vervet Monkeys was magical. We enjoyed the trip to Misali island, which we'd combined with an early morning dolphin safari, we could not believe it when our captain started to turn direction and shouted "Whale!", we were treated to the sight of a whale and its calf, which was just incredible, alongside the many pods of spinner dolphins. On Misali Island, we enjoyed a delicious breakfast before a fabulous snorkeling experience, and I was lucky to see a shoal of around 40 elegant squid swimming past. The food was delicious throughout, and we were looked after incredibly well by our waiters Hamis and Chi Chi, who tried to teach us new Swahili words each evening, and gave us bananas to attract the bushbaby at night - with great success, thank you!! On our last day Hamis, escorted us on the village trek and to the spice farm, which I'd recommend, it was so informative and interesting to learn about all of the different herbs and spices and what they're used for. It was also great to see the support that Fundu Lagoon provides to the local village. It's really hard to sum up our experience at Fundu, so relaxing, the sheer beauty of the location, and the welcoming staff provided us with the most fabulous end to our trip. Thank you all.

Thank you so much for your amazing review of your recent stay with us at Fundu Lagoon. Depending on hotel occupancy, wherever possible it is always our pleasure to be able to upgrade our guests, so I’m delighted that Hannes was able to do this for you. The Vervet monkeys are always non-stop entertainment – one can lose hours watching their antics! I heard from another one of our guests that whales had been spotted when they went on a dolphin safari, so it’s terrific that the whales came out for your trip too, let alone the squid on parade! Our chefs will be delighted to hear of your wonderful comments on their food and the variety of menus that we have on offer for our guests. Thank you also for your suggestion to other potential guests of visiting the spice farm – it really is fascinating. We are very proud of our involvement in the Village welfare project, and with thanks also to the generosity of our guests, it continues to be a privilege to continue to help out the villagers. Feedback from our guests is genuinely appreciated, so thank you again for taking the time to write your review – it means a lot. Ellis Flyte (Creator Director) Hannes Wolters (General Manger)

We travelled on to Fundu Lagoon from Botswana, so the transfer was long, but boy was it worth the trip.

It is a slice of paradise when you get there and has been so beautifully put together. We can't imagine there being anywhere else like it on the planet. It really feels like a hidden gem.

Ramon and his team bent over backwards to make our stay special. From the moment we were greeted from the boat, we had every need catered for. The beach rooms are stunning and literally right on the beach. They were cleaned and re-set twice a day.

The restaurant served up beautiful food 3 times a day and we were lucky enough to have the private BBQ outside our room on our final night and it was incredible. The bar on the jetty is a perfect place to watch teh sunset and the communal pool nestled in the forest was idyllic.

Speacial mention also should go to Medi and his team at the dive centre. We did two dives whilst we were out there and they were awesome. My wife didn't have a diving qualification, but was still able to enjoy a discovery dive and was well looked after. The dolphin safari was also well worth it.

A truly magical trip and we hope to return back one day.

I’m so glad that you felt that your super long transfer from Botswana to Fundu Lagoon was worth travelling on all the various forms of transport that you had to take to reach our corner of ‘paradise’! I’m delighted that you were so well attended to by Ramon and his team, and also that you were impressed by our standard of house-keeping services and the food choices available to our guests. Having your own private BBQ outside your room is a wonderful way to end your stay at Fundu Lagoon – it is very special and creates superb lasting memories of a great holiday. Medi and his team will be thrilled to read your lovely comments about the diving excursions that you had with them. It’s great that your wife was also able to participate, and, as you saw for yourself, she was in very safe hands. I always try and take a dolphin safari whenever I visit Fundu – I never get bored of seeing these extraordinarily beautiful and entertaining mammals. Thank you so much for taking the trouble and time to write your review – it is genuinely appreciated and everyone at Fundu Lagoon will be looking forward to welcoming you both back for another visit.

If you are looking for a real Robinson Crusoe type of holiday, away from the modern life hustle and bustle, then this is the place. Remote, beautiful, quiet, paradise, awesome food, amazing staff is just a few of the words that come to mind. We rested, we scuba dived, we did some deep sea fishing, all in the most romantic remote location you can imagine.

The corona pandemic doesn’t make traveling any easier. However, thanks to the great help and flexibility of Fundu Lagoon (poor Ramon; our airline changed its flight schedule almost every week, much to our annoyance and he had to rebook our domestic flights four times) we arrived at Fundu Lagoon in the middle of November.

It was our first visit since Corona, and I have to say our best decision! It was great to see that Fundu was able to keep most of its staff despite the difficult times. So, we saw many familiar faces again and we felt right at home. The originally planned 2 weeks became 3 weeks and we totally enjoyed every day.

Rusty told us that after almost 18 months in which the resort was closed; a lot of renovation had to be done. However, if we strolled through the resort, we would never have noticed this. It all looked flawless. Even when we were the only guests in the resort for a few days, we were totally spoiled.

Diving is our great passion and one of the reasons why we came back to Fundu. We were skeptical about the reefs, whether everything still looks as beautiful as it did 2 years ago. And yes - the reefs are all in great shape and you can still see a lot of fish. It was just a dream! We couldn't get enough and Medi and his crew did 31 dives with us! We were reluctant to leave Fundu Lagoon.

Thank you all (Ramon and Martie from Management, Kessy from Front Desk, Shamie, Engenia, Khamis and Wuanga from Restaurant/Bar, Medi, Faki and Musa from Diving Center and Ida from Spa/Housekeeping and all the others we do not know personally by name) who helped us to carry out our trip and gave us an unforgettable vacation!

How completely fabulous to read that you recently returned to Fundu for another visit, and 10/10 for your sheer tenacity in being so determined to get to Fundu that you had to change your plans a million times over! I’m so glad that Ramon and our bookings team were able to accommodate your new arrival time and flight schedule – we’re certainly in challenging times at the moment and Ramon and his staff have been wonderful in keeping everything afloat. I’m delighted that you extended your stay with us. We have kept on as many staff we can, but, as with many other businesses across the board, sadly we weren’t able to renew everyone’s contract. Hopefully this will change in the coming seasons. Whilst the resort was closed last year, the silver lining was that it did give Rusty and his team a chance to take their time and do a lot of renovation work that needed to be done at Fundu – normally it’s a frantic 6 week refurbishment between the end of one season and the opening of the next. Rusty will be thrilled to read your comments that everything looked as good as it ever did, and it must have been a real Robinson Crusoe experience to have had the resort to yourselves for a few days – you were quite rightly spoiled! It's lovely to read that the reefs at Misali are as magical as ever, and I am seriously, seriously impressed with your total of 31 dives with Medi and his crew – that must be some kind of a record! It is so kind of you to list as many of our staff’s names as you can recall and they will be absolutely delighted to read this review and see their names in print – that’s so thoughtful of you. Thank you for your incredible review – it is particularly appreciated in difficult times such as now and is so encouraging to both myself, Ramon and all of our staff. On behalf of everyone at Fundu Lagoon, I wish you and your family a healthy, happy and wonderful 2022. Ellis Flyte (Creator Director) Ramon Ribes (General Manager)

We won a voucher at a charity event for Manta Resort the underwater room. When we mentioned to few friends they recommended us to also go to Fundu lagoon in Pemba.

We finally made up our mind and contacted the resort and luckily enough they had availability and were very accommodating.

With that positive response we decided to seal the dates and confirm.

We arrived there on a speed boat very comfortable and a good experience to a warm welcome from the manager herself.

We were shown around and we were amazed and surprised to believe a paradise like this also existed.

We were there for 4 nights and felt rejuvenated by the end of the trip.

We would love to return at some point and will definitely recommend to family and friends.

The entire team is so hospitable!

Only thing we would like to add is - more food should be offered with the Zanzibar spices.

The rest is very well placed and feels very homely.

What fun to have won a voucher to stay in the underwater room at Manta! I’m delighted that it also gave you both an opportunity to take your friends’ advice to visit Fundu Lagoon and that you felt so rejuvenated by the end of your 4 day stay with us. I’m so pleased that you were made to feel very welcome by all our staff and that you felt so comfortable at the resort. I’ve taken on board your comments about the possibility of adding more Zanzibarian spices in our menu choices, and as it happens we’re currently working on adding more local spices to our side dishes, but I’m sure you understand that we have to cater for guests who possess all range of taste buds! I’m thrilled that you both would love to return to Fundu Lagoon at a future date – we all look forward to welcoming you back. Thank you for taking the time and trouble to write your review – it is genuinely appreciated. With all good wishes for 2020. Ellis Flyte (Creative Director) Ramon Ribes (Manager)

Where do I start! I've been lucky enough to travel the world since a young age, and stay in some wonderful, luxurious places, but this went above and beyond any previous travel destinations I've been to. I could write pages about this place but don't want to spoil it for those who are yet to go....the care and attention paid to guests by Hannes is second to none and the team he has there with him is fantastic. We were lucky to be staying at Fundu Lagoon during a relatively quiet week, so it really did feel like we were celebrities, with the place to ourselves! The accommodation is stunning, we went on a magical snorkelling trip to Misali Island (you can easily go Scuba Diving too but we were happy with snorkelling) and the food and drinks are delicious. We do have to apologise to the chef and the restaurant team for appearing like we didn't like the food, but we were on anti malaria tablets for the week (worst decision ever) and they made us feel really 'bleugh' so we struggled to eat or drink much the whole time we were at Fundu Lagoon. Such a shame as the daily menus available were amazing. The team were so thoughtful, as they clearly picked up that we weren't feeling well, with ginger being offered to us at every opportunity! Breakfast juice with ginger and carrot (delicious!), ginger tea, even ginger in our cocktails ha ha! The daily sundowners with a perfect sunset every night were a great treat, and you wouldn't believe how much nature there is. Stepping over millipedes, seeing dolphins out to sea, regular visits from the velvet monkeys, and teasing the bush babies out in the evenings with fruit - the cutest visitors ever! Unfortunately the weather didn't behave itself, with more rain than was expected, but it didn't matter. When you're staying at Fundu Lagoon, you really do feel like you've landed on a deserted island and with a good book and a cocktail, you don't even notice it's raining!
A huge thank you to Hannes and the team at Fundu Lagoon, if ever anyone mentions looking to go to Zanzibar (where we went on honeymoon) we shall certainly say no, you HAVE to visit Pemba Island and Fundu Lagoon.

What an incredible review to read of your recent stay with us at Fundu Lagoon – I’m totally blown away by it. Hannes will be particularly thrilled to read your kind words, and I’m delighted that you felt that you were treated like celebrities. Every guest is special to all of us at Fundu Lagoon, and we like to make sure that we look after each person in as special a way as we can. Ah yes, the dreaded anti-maleria tablets. Such a shame that you couldn’t indulge in the food menus and just had to admire them from afar, but the same thing has happened to other guests. Some people sail through it, and others unfortunately like yourselves, get a bit of a reaction to the tablets. I’m glad that the team did their best to look after you until you felt better, and a decent set of cocktails always seems to help the situation! Thank you for your wonderful recommendation to others who might be thinking of visiting us – it is very much appreciated. With all good wishes for Christmas and 2024.

This is a really nice place, ALL the staff is 100% service minded, not in the cool professional way, it is by the heart, it is obvious that they love working there, probably due to management involvement in the local society. Further the rooms are incredible nice. I strongly recommend to take the beach front if you can.

We were lucky enough to spend a couple of days here whilst on a catamaran trip around Pemba. We were warmly welcomed and were fortunate enough to be there on the evening of their beach barbecue which was an unforgettable experience. The food was incredible. We also had dinner in the restaurant and the food there was equally good. The manager there, Hans is a really lovely fun guy and the rest of the staff were so happy and made our time there fabulous. Some of our party had massages which they said were really good. My only regret is we didn’t stay there as the rooms looked great. We will return

How lovely that you visited Fundu Lagoon on a catamaran. Years ago when we were looking for a suitable site, myself and a couple of the directors hired a catamaran to see if we could find somewhere. There was an incredible storm one night and when we woke up the next day we found ourselves in the peninsula by what is now Fundu Lagoon! You certainly arrived at the right time as the Fundu beach barbecues are sensational and, as you observed, the food is incredible. Hannes is a terrific host and I’m so glad that you were made to feel so welcome. The rooms are indeed great, and all of us at Fundu look forward to welcoming into your own room the next time you visit. Thank you so much for your review – your kind words are genuinely appreciated.
