Mnemba Island Lodge

Deluxe An excellent hotel that has rooms with air-conditioning, one or more restaurants that serve very good food, a swimming pool, bars, lounges, room service - all the amenities of a four or five-star international hotel.

Mnemba Island Lodge features ten en suite banda cottages, bordered on three sides by tropical beach forest and overlooking the beach and coral reef. Each exquisite banda has been hand-woven and thatched from tree branches and traditional Zanzibari palm-matting. The materials were chosen to allow the cooling sea breezes to move through the bungalow and, assisted by overhead fans, the cottages remain cool all day.

The calm warm seas around Mnemba are nothing short of a giant aquatic playground. The clear blue seas provide unsurpassed visibility for snorkeling and scuba diving enthusiasts. The lodge will provide you with all scuba and snorkeling equipment needed.

Optional activities include deep-sea fishing, which is among the best in the world. Other options which are included in the rate, are windsurfing, kayaking, and swimming directly from the beach. On land, choose between bird-watching, walking or simply sun-tanning.  You may walk the streets of the ancient Zanzibar and discover the history of the island. Cultural activities on Zanzibar include a Spice Tour or historical town tour as optional extras. It is preferable to do your sightseeing at the beginning or the end of your visit to Mnemba.

Baskets filled with tropical fruit, lobsters and fresh fish are sailed into Mnemba on traditional ngalawa outriggers. Mouthwatering cuisine with exotic delicacies are lavishly prepared and laid out for you in the thatched dining and bar area. Luscious fruit includes coconut, oranges, papaya, bananas, mangoes, lychees, guavas, star apple, jack-fruit, rambutans, breadfruit and avocado pears.
