Mnemba Island Lodge

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 Island is 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. It’s the perfect place to relax and unwind after a safari.

A Guide To Mnemba - 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 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.
