Mnemba Island Lodge

    Updated in 2004, the bungalows of Mnemba Island Lodge feature verandas and private beach pavilions outfitted with wooden sun beds from Zanzibar. Guests can spend their days diving on the surrounding reefs, fishing for marlin in a traditional dhow, lounging on a white-sand beach, or walking through the forest in search of tiny Suni deer. Accommodations The resort recently upgraded and expanded its 10 beachfront bandas, which sit on raised platforms and feature private verandas and beach pavilions. Recreation Diving in the marine reserve (home to whale sharks and about 600 other species of fish). Dining Served at tables on the sand, meals generally consist of fresh fish, risottos, and fruit, all accompanied by South African vintages. Worthy Diversion Guests can volunteer to host Zanzibari children for a day on Mnemba Island, where they learn about protecting the marine reserve’s wildlife. Rates From $750 to $975 per person, per night. Mnemba is closed during the monsoon season, April 1 through May 31.
