About Mnemba Island Lodge

Surrounded by the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean, Mnemba Island Lodge is a blissfully private tropical island paradise offering the best in barefoot luxury. Just 15 minutes by boat from the main Unguja Island which dominates the Zanzibar Archipelago, Mnemba Island is protected by a tranquil lagoon and boasts spectacular coral reefs. In the dancing dapple of shade and sunlight, ten secluded cottages nestle within verdant tropical vegetation.


Ten self-contained cottages, each with en-suite bathroom and private verandah.
Built from natural palm matting, timber and thatch, the cottages have en-suite bathrooms, and a private verandah overlooking the lagoon. Sea breezes waft through the central bar-lounge and the spacious, open-plan dining area, where meals of fresh fish and tropical fruit are served. Relaxation is the hallmark of Mnemba, but boating and fishing, as well as snorkelling and diving off the coral reefs, are irresistible diversions in this idyllic retreat. There can be no better way to experience an East African safari than this blissful haven, where balmy waters lap the sun-soaked shore.
