Full accommodation information

Off the coast of Zanzibar, privacy is the key to your stay at the &Beyond Mnemba Island Lodge, where a maximum of just 20 guests will enjoy this exclusive retreat. Diving and snorkelling conditions here are superb and the magic of watching the turtles hatching on the shores of the island will stay with you forever.

The lodge's ten bandas all located on the beachside with dramatic views over the Mnemba atoll provide guests with a perfect romantic away-from-it-all hideaway experience. The philosophy at the lodge is barefoot luxury and guests can enjoy the peace quiet afforded them by the remote and untouched location off the north east coast of Zanzibar.

The activities available for guests at the private island location include Scuba diving, deep sea fishing as well as snorkelling. Courses are available for guests who want to experience snorkelling for the first time where the shallow coral reefs can be explored.
The coral reefs which surround the Mnemba island are the natural habitat for a wide variety of marine life including dolphins and whales which make it an ideal place to enjoy the natural beauty and wildlife the Indian Ocean has to offer.
