Mnemba Island Lodge, Zanzibar

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…

&Beyond Mnemba Island Lodge, Zanzibar - The Facts 


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. This is the best place to take a Tanzania honeymoon. Visitors to this most exclusive of Indian Ocean island hideaways could find themselves sharing cocktails with Mnemba fan Bill Gates! 

Mnemba Island Lodge Booking


If you are set on Mnemba Island Lodge, give us a call and we can tell you the best time to go to avoid peak season prices, and also the honeymoon deals which makes it that bit more affordable (but you still have to have quite a deep pocket!). If you aren't quite looking to spend so much on your Tanzania honeymoon though, there are plenty of other fantastic options on Zanzibar and the surrounding islands. Please see our recent honeymoon blog for the low-down on the most romantic beach spots in 2018. 

How to get to Mnemba Island? 


It could not be easier. International flights hop into Dar es Salaam and within a few hours you can be relaxing on Africa's best beach... You connect in Dar to a flight to Zanzibar's Stone Town. At the other you are met by a representative from &Beyond, driven to the crossing point, popped on a little boat and you are there! It is so easy to combine this world-class lodge with more exceptional camps on a Tanzania safari. 

We don't just know Zanzibar!

Mnemba Island - Reviews

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.
