Fundu Lagoon Pemba Island

Fundu Lagoon pays full homage to the term ‘barefoot luxury'. Set remote and isolated amidst the Indian Ocean, it is situated close to a nearby village where most of the lodge's employees come from. The lodge was designed to blend naturally with the surroundings and stands out pleasantly from the many concrete buildings that are usually found on beaches.

Fundu's 18 thatched rooms are scattered along the shoreline of the beach where pristine forest meets the sea of the Indian Ocean. The eight hillside rooms enjoy an elevated position and offer excellent views of the bay. Along the beach there are four beachfront rooms, two suites (the beach suite & the jungle suite, that is slightly set back from the beach) with wooden decks and plunge pool, and four superior suites featuring additional lounge, larger plunge pool and extended decks suitable for in-house dining.

The main area includes the reception, the dive center, the restaurant and the long jetty that leads to the Jetty Bar where finest drinks are served. Sandy pathways meander through the forest to link the main area to the rooms and to the infinity pool, spa and pool bar. The views from the pool area are fantastic, a relaxing and secluded oasis offering total relaxation with the spa only steps away. Fundu takes pride of its cuisine and the local, fresh products used for its international and Swahili dishes. Once a week there is a barbecue on the beach and every Sunday tables are set up at the jetty for a celebration of Swahili cuisine and music.

Pemba Island is much less renowned and less frequented than its big sister Zanzibar further south. There are few accommodation options on the serene island of Pemba and Fundu Lagoon is long time favourite.

After arrival at Chaka Chaka airport on Pemba Island, guests are taken by vehicle to a harbour. The transfers over the island takes about 40 minutes. Fundu Lagoon can only be reached by boat, the boat ride takes about 15 minutes.

Fundu Lagoon has its own fully equipped dive centre. Diving around Pemba is rather demanding and includes many drift dive sites. Guests are usually taken by boat to a small island or sandbank and snorkel or dive from there. Further activities include water skiing, windsurfing, fishing, canoe trips among the mangroves and trips in a dhow (traditional sailing boat).

Visit the spa for a relaxing massage or beauty treatment. A pool table and library are also available for use.
