Mnemba Island Lodge
Set on a private island off the north east coast of Zanzibar, Mnemba Island Lodge is the epitome of barefoot, exclusive island paradise. Twelve rustically chic beachside bandas enjoy views across the Mnemba Atoll, each with their own stretch of beach front, tucked slightly away in the tropical casuarina trees. Time spent on Mnemba Island is to enjoy the natural riches of the Indian Ocean, at your own pace.
Mnemba Island Lodge is a special place. An unpretentious paradise on an exclusive island, surrounded by rich marine waters providing outstanding snorkelling and diving opportunities. Exuding the essence of Zanzibar’s richness at all levels including the fresh, locally produced ingredients used to make up the daily menus, from freshly squeezed juices at breakfast to freshly caught tuna in the evening.
Each of the twelve rustic palm-front bandas are elegantly simple with en-suite stone bathrooms, separate lounge to relax or arrange a private massage and a beach sala. Rush matting on the floors and wall, thatched roofing and open windows allowing the cool, trade breeze to gently and naturally air condition the room, all contributes towards this simplistic luxury.
The lodge’s main area is as free flowing and open as the bandas with a beautiful stone library, dining area and bar. Dining is often enjoyed on the beach when the heat of the day has subsided, under the stars by candlelight or privately by your banda.
Yours days can be spent enjoying a wide variety of activities on offer including with kayaks and paddle boards which available to use throughout the day. Swimming and snorkelling can be enjoyed directly from the beach or a short boat ride to the house reefs. Scuba Diving is well catered for on the island with 2 dives being included in their nightly rate, as well as the most beautiful, traditional sundowner dhow cruise on the Indian Ocean.
A stay at Mnemba Island Lodge is simply magical. Disconnecting from the stresses of busy, every day life, and reconnecting with those you are with and the your natural surroundings.
