Explore andBeyond Mnemba Island
Say your farewells to civilisation, by disconnecting on a barefoot oasis off the coast of Zanzibar. This is a Tanzanian paradise full of island serenity. Expect elegant suites that pay tribute to the beauty of the coast, through wood, reed, rough glass and interlaced rattan.Stir from your slumber and wake in a soft four-poster bed. Enjoy a Parisian-inspired breakfast, toes playfully buried in creamy powder sand. Beach strolls grant a chance to digest this feast. Intrepid water sports await in the afternoon. End the day with a private dinner, where waves break in the background and dishes are lit by the glow of hanging lamps.
The hotel calls tiny Mnemba island home. Only a 15-minute speedboat ride from Zanzibar, it is conveniently reachable yet seductively remote. Access to marine life is also prime, with the Mnemba atoll being a renowned snorkeling spot.
Only 12 suites (called bandas) make up this secluded tropical resort. Family bandas are available. Stays are adorned by thatched roofs and rustic interiors. Decor is dominated by delicately appointed natural materials, alongside private shaded verandas and beach salas that lead out to sea.
Who is it for
This is the perfect hideaway for adults and couples seeking a romantic southern Africa getaway. However, the entire place can also be privately reserved, making it an alluring choice for large families or groups.
