Location and transfer
Approximately a 90-minute road transfer across Zanzibar from the airport, before a 20-minute boat crossing to Mnemba. Private charters to Zanzibar can be arranged. NB: Visas are required for Tanzania.
This secluded, serene and stunning island is an understandably popular choice for honeymooners and couples, particularly well combined with a luxury African safari. It’s a true island hideaway, where private picnics on the beach, romantic candlelit dinners, in-room massages and dreamy dhow cruises for two can be arranged.
Step straight from your Banda onto the pristine sands of the island's beautiful beach, perfectly shaded by the casuarina pine forest that covers the island’s interior. As you stroll along the shoreline, look out for dolphins and coconut crabs.
Children are welcome, but only two children under twelve years of age are allowed on the island at any one time. Two bandas located close together are a good choice for families.
The waters around the island are protected, conserving magnificent coral reefs where giant turtles, ghost crabs and spectacular tropical fish drift through the lagoons - there are approximately four times the amount of fish species here than are found in the Caribbean. The island has its own professional dive school for beginners.
Spa & Wellness
Start your day with a morning yoga session on the shoreline, where the soft ocean breeze compliments the sound of the lapping waves on the sands. Natural and organic products are used by the team of masseurs, who can provide a variety of treatments in your private beach sala.
