Fundu Lagoon is a stylish lodge offering barefoot luxury in a unique Tanzanian setting. Set on the small island of Pemba in the Zanzibar Archipelago, this privately-owned lodge, the epitome of shabby chic, features 18 tented safari style bungalows, some on the beach and some on the hill side, but all with breathtaking views of the Indian Ocean.
Fundu Lagoon has everything one needs to enjoy the Indian Ocean, from wake-boarding to windsurfing, kayaking or simply strolling along the peaceful shoreline where it is lovely to watch the local families collecting clams or just passing by…if lucky, local fishermen can be seen bringing in their daily catch. It is an idyllic place to unwind and enjoy total peace and relaxation, whether it be lingering poolside or enjoying the spectacular sights of the Indian Ocean.
On a beautiful beach fringed by natural forest, accessed only by boat, the lodge offers complete privacy with all the thatched bungalows enjoying fabulous views of the ocean. The tented rooms, built on a raised wooden deck with romantic thatched roofs, are categorized into Standard, Suites and Superior Suites. Suites have chill out areas and plunge pools and superior suites offer larger accommodation and a choice of outdoor areas as well as their own super-sized plunge pools. The shady beach is literally on your doorstep and the noise of the Ocean will lull you to sleep. At high tide, the white sand beach is perfect for swimming, while at low tide the reef is exposed and one can explore miles of unspoilt seashore, with its unique marine and bird life.
The hotel’s main areas are open-sided with thatch roofing, and the three bars, excellent restaurant and beautiful infinity pool have all been designed to blend naturally with this unique East African setting.
For a relaxing and restorative indulgence, The Fusion Spa has a range of exclusive treatments using specially formulated blends of local spices. However; for the more active, a visit to the resort’s fully equipped dive centre to explore the marine life on the surrounding coral reefs might be preferable – renowned to be some of the best diving in the world and recently voted Best Marine Safari Property in Africa.
