An enchanting retreat on an island off Zanzibar, Fundu Lagoon offers barefoot luxury with a castaway feeling. Providing utter seclusion on a beach-front setting, this is a romantic place to forget about the rest of the world for a while.
Accommodation here is offered in just 18 tented style bungalows with thatched roofs – combining safari chic with traditional African architecture. Decorated with authentic artwork inside, the exterior houses decked terraces and access to the beach. Wooden walkways and pretty sandy paths connect the bungalows with the rest of the resort.
The infinity pool is a relaxing place to spend some time – set on a hillside at the top of the hotel and surrounded by forest – offering panoramic views of the ocean. A small spa by the pool is a retreat offering massages and other treatments blending African and Asian influences. Massage oils used are bespoke to Fundu Lagoon, bringing together everything from local wood scents to exotic spices.
The beach offers more activity for those who want it. Scuba diving excursions are popular here thanks to an abundance of clear watered dive sites full of colourful marine life. It is also possible to rent kayaks and stand-up paddleboards.
Cuisine at Fundu Lagoon is focused on fresh, local ingredients – with seafood at the heart of many menus. Food blends everything from African to European influences, while a weekly barbecue offers an opportunity to eat by the lapping water. Three bars provide plentiful drinking options at Fundu Lagoon too – with the Jetty Bar over the water a firm favourite. On Sunday nights, the Jetty Bar is home to a traditional Swahili feast accompanied by music.
