Best Places To Stay On Pemba Island - Beach Hotels

Interesting vegetation and fantastic diving and snorkeling is what Pemba has to offer. However, the beaches are not nearly as good as Zanzibar, and although coral reefs and sparkling ocean surround it, the thick mangrove forests on the shorlines restrict access. Definitely an underwater destination. 

Constance Aiyana

Constance Hotels have taken over and revamped this new and exciting hotel, which offers a slice of tranquility in the very north of Pemba Island. With modern yet seemless architecture, this hotel blends in with it's surroundings effortlessly resulting in a sleek and luxurious hideaway for Indian Ocean relaxation lovers. 

Fundu Lagoon

Fundu Lagoon is a great lodge for diving and snorkelling.  It has some excellent sites and is known for the quality of its coral life.  It is also perfect for honeymooners, but if you’re after a quality beach there may be an issue!  It is very tidal and there isn’t much of an idyllic white beach like you get on Zanzibar.  However, it does make up for the lack of beach in the quality of the lodge and the all inclusive rate.  The rooms are tented and unless you go for the suites or superior suites, the high prices are not justified.

The Manta Resort

The Manta Resort is a good value remote lodge on the North of the island of Pemba, people come here for the diving and the remoteness if you feel you want to escape the commercial Zanzibar. The Lodge has been here for a long time but has changed hands over the years, there have been a few improvements which have brought up the standard. Still a relatively simple lodge with a quiet beach and great dive spots.
