Fundu Lagoon
  • Relax by the infinity swimming pool with fabulous views out to sea

  • Dive off Misali Island

  • Epitome of barefoot luxury

  • Snorkel by the jetty

Fundu Lagoon lies on a wild and beautiful beach on Pemba Island, in the Zanzibar archipelago. There are 18 spacious thatched and tented rooms, including six suites with private plunge pools, set on a raised wooden deck with wonderful ocean views. 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. Nearby lies Misali Island, an idyllic sand atoll surrounded by some of Africa’s best diving and snorkelling.

The rarely dived waters around Pemba are among the richest and most exciting in the world. Walls of pristine coral stretching for mile upon mile are home to a vast range of marine life and provide some of the most exhilarating drift diving in East Africa. The team of PADI instructors provide expert training and insider knowledge on all aspects of diving. The two dive boats can take up to eight divers each and are capable of the necessary speed to bring every dive site on Pemba within easy reach of Fundu Lagoon. All dives are guided either by an instructor or Divemaster and group numbers are kept small making the safety record second to none.

If guests prefer just to relax around the resort the Spa is the best place to head for. Fundu's own range of beautifully blended infusions are used in relaxing massages and a range of different therapies. There is a peaceful yoga platform overlooking the ocean for the ultimate sun salutations.
