Fundu Lagoon


Fundu Lagoon is a remote and peaceful resort located on the island of Pemba, off the coast of Zanzibar. Only accessible by boat, set on a beautiful beach and fringed by natural forest, the property is privately owned and run with a love for the natural environment that surrounds it.  Wooden walkways and sandy paths lead to 18 Makuti thatched tented rooms and suites.  All rooms have breath-taking views of the Indian Ocean.  

The property offers full board accommodation including all meals, beers and house wine. There are three bars, an excellent restaurant and a beautiful infinity pool, all designed to blend naturally into the unique East African setting.  Relax at our Fusion Jungle Spa or take advantage of some of the incredible activities on offer including our PADI certified dive centre, Dive710. Some of the world’s best snorkelling and diving can be found off the coast of Pemba, especially in the waters around Misali Island, a marine conservation area and only a short boat trip from Fundu Lagoon.

Fundu Lagoon is ideal place to visit whether you are an independent traveller or looking for a honeymoon beach resort. It is also a favourite safari beach destination, especially after a safari in Kenya or Tanzania.
