“Eco chic villas with thatched roofes perched above a white sand beach. Individual bungalows and villas with private balconies and hammocks looking out to sea. A secluded spot offering total relaxation and intimacy for honeymooners. Plenty of sea activities, from big game fishing to scuba diving.”

Hotel Review

Perched on coral rock above a strip of fine white sand, this shabby chic lodge has bungalows and villas looking out onto the reefs of the Mnemba atoll. It's a quiet place and your only neighbour is a sleepy fishing village where the hotel supports the local school. Fishing trips with the locals are a highlight while the infinity pool and beach make it a fine holiday retreat.
Recommended for
  • Beach Life
  • Right on the most beautiful beach, overlooking the Indian Ocean, with diving, snorkelling, kayaking, swimming and beachcombing.
  • Honeymoons
  • Tranquil, laid back and wildly romantic- swing on your double hammock, sip cocktails and dip in your private plunge pool.
