Mnemba Island Lodge: What we think

Travel writers have often named Mnemba as one of the top beaches in the world, certainly in Africa.  Mnemba is the ultimate definition of barefoot luxury, one of the few places where you can snorkel straight off the beach and onto pristine reef.  Owned and run by &Beyond, the food and service is top class- however, all this does come an eye watering cost…

Mnemba is undoubtedly one of the best beach destinations in the world, let alone Africa. It can only get 5 palms.

Mnemba Island Lodge: In depth

Mnemba Island located just of the north east coast of Zanzibar.  It is accessible by flying to Stone Town, the capital of Zanzibar and then being driven to a crossing point on the north of the island. You will then be transferred by boat to the private island. The perfect place to relax and unwind after a safari.

Mnemba may be one of the most expensive beach lodges on the coast, however, the lodge is very simple and the sheer beauty of the beach delivers one of the finest barefoot luxury experiences in Africa.  The &Beyond staff and impeccable cuisine make this the perfect beach location.  This is the pinnacle Tanzania holidays.

The communal area is simple and open with views onto the white sand of the beach, serving excellent fresh sea food as well as pretty much anything you want!

Accommodation is in just 10 roomy, thatched beach bandas with bathrooms set back along a soft corridor of woven coconut palm, each set back from the beach in a private clearing in the forest.  All bedrooms, verandas and central living areas are atmospherically designed with light cotton nets, soft African prints and cushions, and - once the astronomical rates have been afforded - all fresh tropical cocktails, diving expeditions, water sports and fishing trips are included!

The lodge runs a professional dive school and has traditional wooden dhows from which to explore the warm, clear waters and coral reefs. Guests then return to their island hideaway to enjoy sumptuous feasts of fresh fruit, vegetables, seafood and meats all fabulously prepared and presented.  Visitors to this most exclusive of Indian Ocean island hideaways could find themselves sharing cocktails with Mnemba fan Bill Gates!

Mnemba despite the astronomical price was incredible, one of the most beautiful places we’ve been and with brilliant food and service, our butler Rajab was brilliant, we absolutely loved it and would love to go back. Probably in about 20 years when we’ve saved up enough again.

Staying on Mnemba was the perfect way to end our holiday.  Even though it’s probably over priced for the standard of the accommodation (I’m glad we got two free nights in our deal !) you’re paying for the peace, isolation and privacy.  We were looked after very well by the island manager, Peter and had a truly delightful butler, Tunaimi who was permanently cheerful and nothing was ever too much trouble for him……….he would actively look for things to do for us.  I would highly recommend people to ask for him if staying at Mnemba.  He was clearly the best butler.

The lodges, the people, the game viewing, the food and Mnemba to finish with! You guys really are good at what you do. We are seriously thinking of taking our daughter ( 17) back to East Africa in February. If we do and if she wishes to then we will, we will only use you. Well done to everyone at Tanzania Odyssey and at CC Africa who did you proud.
Kind Regards

Mnemba Island Lodge: Breaking news

Zanzibar, East Coast

The Palms really is the most intimate and luxurious lodge on Zanzibar.  It is a honeymooner’s paradise!  It offers an impeccable standard of service, one of the most beautiful beaches on Zanzibar and some incredibly lavish accommodation.  The staff at Palms go that extra mile to make sure that their guest’s every need is catered for. It’s an extremely romantic beach destination….

Zanzibar, East Coast

Breezes is exceptional value for money.  It may be a large hotel but it delivers a trusty and excellent product.  It is our favourite in the ‘large hotel’ category and perfect for families and honeymooners alike.  Having been running for longer than most of the other properties on the island you can expect the years of experience to shine through.  The facilities are great and the lovely long pristine beach makes its size all worthwhile. 

Zanzibar, West Coast
This is one of Zanzibar’s largest hotels.  Although it does offer a lovely cheap rate on all its room categories, the ambiance and European-party induced character it has adopted make it reason to look elsewhere if you are after some sort of peace.  In fairness to the designers, the rooms are well hidden from the bulk of the property but once you’re at your room, you are evidently in one of many large blocks.  If you are looking for a big hotel, we much prefer to use Breezes which offers a better quality product at about the same price.
