Fumba Beach Lodge is one or the newest editions to Zanzibars thriving luxury guest house market. It boasts over 40 acres of grounds, protected but the WWF due to the areas outstanding natural beauty, and an impressive 2km of private beach containing 3 sandy coves.
Fumba Beach lodge is the only property to be set in the Menai Bay Conservation Area which was set up in 1998. The project was designed to teach villagers the importance of protecting their natural heritage and show how Eco-tourism could bring in much needed money without damaging the environment.
This property has everything you would expect from a top quality guest house, we found the open air restaurant to be very accommodating, serving good quality international cuisine as well as a variety of local specialities and of course plenty of sea food.
In the Dhow FumBar, partly constructed from an old Zanzibari dhow and set on top of a cliff, you are guaranteed service with a smile and the perfect place to watch the sun go down, whilst relaxing by the pool.
Due to its location only 30 minutes outside Stone Town, Fumba Beach Lodge is perfect for those seeking a relaxing beach holiday and to soak up a little culture.
Fumba Beach Lodge is an excellent property in a great location. We would recommend upgrading to a suite if available as they are more secluded and have better access to the beach. Snorkelling is fantastic here and dive facilities are available, although for the best dive sites you will need to travel.
