Fundu Lagoon is a remote and idyllic lodge hidden among the foliage at the edge of a lovely, long stretch of soft, white sand on the southwest coast of the island. Fundu offers some of the finest coral reef diving and snorkelling in the world, fine fishing, and a choice of activities; or the chance to do nothing but soak up the natural beauty of the place, the quiet, and the easy, welcoming ambience.
Sandy paths and wooden walkways lead to 18 thatched, tented rooms and suites, all built on stilts, with a view of the ocean and the tropical sunset. There are eight hillside rooms and four beachfront rooms. Two very stylish suites have plunge pools, extended sundecks and indoor and outdoor seating areas. The 4 superior suites are especially spacious.
Dining at Fundu Lagoon can best be described as a culinary safari! The dinner venue changes each night of the week. It may be on the beach under a canopy of stars, or on the deck lit by paraffin lanterns or in the boma-like restaurant with an open fire crackling nearby. Lunch and dinner are delicious three course meals. This is an island, so fish is often on the menu, complimented by fresh vegetables and the spices for which the Zanzibar Islands are famous. The menus are more international than traditional, which makes a welcome change from some of the other resorts in the islands.
The Jetty Bar is located, not surprisingly, out along the amazing 200m-long jetty. Here the friendly barman will whip up just about any exotic cocktail you can think of.
