“Magical Robinson Crusoe-style eco lodge on Chumbe Island. State of the art, environmentally friendly bungalows provide simple but comfortable accommodation. Candlelit beach dining with excellent cuisine. Ideal for honeymooners and nature revellers alike.”

Hotel Review

This award-winning island project, designed to have no impact on the delicate marine ecosystem, is best for those who are prepared to rough it a little. The Robinson Crusoe-style self-sufficient eco-lodges are great fun, traditional food is served in the impressive domed lodge and the staff are passionate and well-informed. Spend an afternoon learning about marine life or climbing the lighthouse; eco-tourism at its best.
